Student Activities for Bach Cantata
A lesson plan aimed at all levels. It presents a number of different activities as starting points for the study of the set work. Teachers may select from the list in any order depending on the level of the class, progress of the students, etc.
Geomorphology From Space: A Global Overview of Regional Landforms
This CD-ROM is a reproduction of the out-of-print textbook by the same name developed for the undergraduate to graduate level Earth systems science major to study landforms and landscapes. It presents in-depth coverage of geomorphology as a discipline and the use of satellite imagery in observation, study, and interpretation. It contains a gallery of 237 color and black and white plates of space imagery, primarily of Earth, each treating a geographic region where a particular landform theme is e
In search of a moving company
A couple wants to move and they contact a number of moving companies to ask for information on the cost. You will listen to their conversations and help them choose a moving company that meet their requirements.
Suddenly in hospital, English/Dutch
At the end of this lesson you will know the necessary vocabulary to contact a hospital.
A Look At Books
We have many books all around us. More and more books are being made all the time. Have you wondered what it takes to make a book?
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 6 Month Old: Normal: Reflexes - Deep Tendon Reflexes
It is hard to get the baby relaxed and cooperative enough to get the limb in the optimal position for obtaining deep tendon reflexes. At this age, all the deep tendon reflexes tested in an adult exam should be obtainable. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 12 Month Old: Normal: Motor/Coordination - Play Ball
The infant plays the simple game of throw the ball. His throw is not an overhand throw which is seen in an 18 month old but rather a pushing away and dropping type of throw that is typical for this age. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
Human Brain Atlas: Brain (Oblique) - Image Map
Nine slides of the anatomical structures of the brain are mapped in this image from the UCLA Interactive Neurosciences Human Brain Atlas.
Sensory Exam: Normal Exam: Light Touch
Light touch (thigmesthesia) is used as a screening test for touch. Both the spinothalamic and DCML systems serve this sensation so it is not specific for either one. A cotton tip applicator or fine hair brush is used. Select areas from different dermatomes and peripheral nerves and compare right versus left. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous s
Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Tremor
Patient's arms are held outstretched and fingers extended. Watch for postural or essential tremor. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examination permits "dissection" of the nervous system and localizes the disease when present. Instead of simply memorizing the components of the exam, a logical and systematic approach to
Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Tandem Gait
The patient is asked to walk heel-to-toe. Note steadiness. Tandem gait requires the patient to narrow the station and maintain balance over a 4-5 inch width. Patients with midline ataxias have difficulty with tandem gait. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examination permits "dissection" of the nervous system and localiz
All month long, in honor of Colon Cancer awareness, Dr. Raju, in the department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition, is answering colonoscopy questions on facebook via video from his computer here at MD Anderson.

Exploring Important Biological Concepts Using Biology Workbench
This set of three activities uses Biology Workbench, a website that brings together sequence databases and online software for searching databases, aligning sequences, and creating inferred phylogenetic trees. The first two activities explore the diversity of preproinsulin sequences across species. Students use the Student Version of Biology Workbench and search databases by keyword in the first activity, while, in the second, students use the actual Biology Workbench and search the databases us
Exercise Physiology: The Response of Metabolic Rate to Physical Activity
In this lab, students measure their heart rate, oxygen consumption, and carbon dioxide production in various physical activities on a treadmill or cycle ergometer. After learning the techniques in the first lab period, each group of 3-4 students designs an independent investigation that is performed during the second lab period. To measure metabolic rate, students collect expired air in a Douglas bag, then measure the volume, the temperature, and the concentration of oxygen and carbon dioxide. W
Effective Methods of Training Biology Laboratory Teaching Assistants IV: The Use of Skits, A Teachin
Each year since 1999 ABLE has provided a forum for presentation, discussion, and sharing of ideas concerning the use of undergraduates and graduate students to run labs and teach in the Departments of Biological Science. There have been lively films, games, examples, and discussions of the many university training sessions and/or workshops to Train Graduate Teaching Assistants to handle students, labs, and even teaching assignments. This year we will offer four other areas of discussion for you.
Programming a Robot
In this video segment from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad breaks down an action into a series of steps in order to program a robot to do what they need it to do.
