Scaling Galileo's Solar System - Locating the Globes
In this activity students plot the position of model planets on a campus map by converting from polar coordinates to Cartesian coordinates, after calculating the planet positions from scaled orbits and periods. They recreate spreadsheets, shown in a Powerpoint module, with formulas that answer various pieces of the overall question. This module is the fourth in a series of four on the Galilean Solar System, and was designed for an undergraduate class where students look at geological questions m

HOU Middle School Curriculum: Solar System Science
The HOU Middle School Curriculum, Solar System Science (previously Hands-On Solar System or HOSS), lets your students use images from professional telescopes along with image processing software developed for use in the classroom, to learn key concepts in astronomy, mathematics, and technology. Solar System Science blends content learning with critical thinking skills and processes such as data interpretation, measurement techniques, and using appropriate tools for exploration.

Methods and algorithms for system design
System design is the central topic of this course. We move beyond the methods developed in circuit design (although we shall have interest in those) and consider situations in which the functional behavior of a system is the first object under consideration.

Elementary GLOBE: Earth System in a Bottle
A learning activity for the "All About Earth: Our World on Stage" book in the Elementary GLOBE series. In pairs, students will create experimental conditions in terrariums in order to study what plants need to live. Variables to study include the presence or absence of soil, water, and sunlight. Students will record the growth of radish plants as well as observations of "the water cycle" in their terrariums. At the conclusion of their experiments, students will share their results with the class

The Necessity of the Immune System
(March 30, 2010) David Lewis provides an overview of the human immune system, answering questions on how innate and adaptive immunity are integrated to optimize the immune response. During the final quarter of the Stanford Mini Med School, some of the most timely and important topics in contemporary medicine and the biosciences are addressed. Stanford Mini Med School is a series arranged and directed by Stanford's School of Medicine, and presented by the Stanford Continuing Studies program.

"Communication System Design, Spring 2006"
" This course presents a top-down approach to communications system design. The course will cover communication theory, algorithms and implementation architectures for essential blocks in modern physical-layer communication systems (coders and decoders, filters, multi-tone modulation, synchronization sub-systems). The course is hands-on, with a project component serving as a vehicle for study of different communication techniques, architectures and implementations. This year, the project is focu
