This animation shows how velocity and position of an aircraft are resolved in a 3-D Cartesian coordinate system.
Geospatial System Analysis and Design
The course provides the geospatial information system professional an overview of systems analysis and design with emphasis the concepts behind the design process including: business use case modeling, business object modeling, requirements definition, analysis and preliminary design, and, finally, detailed design and deployment. The concepts of the geospatial software and database development process are introduced and the limitations of current modeling techniques are addressed within the spat
GPS and GNSS for Geospatial Professionals
This course cultivates a working knowledge of current and future capabilities of GPS and the emerging Global Navigation Satellite System.
Bringing Water to a Lesotho Village
invites students to conduct research and then simulate a Lesotho village water committee that is designing a water supply system to improve living and health conditions.
Categorizing Celestial Objects
In this lesson students will apply astronomy concepts to develop and test a classification system for planets; Participate in a class vote on planet classification; Read an article about astronomers' response to the planetary categorization; Discuss and write an essay about the scientist's role as decision-makers for the public.
The Musculoskeletal System
LearnHealth presents the first installment of the Human Body series, "The Musculoskeletal System." This video talks about bones, muscles, types of muscles and joints, ligaments, and tendons. Everything is well labeled-video can be paused to take notes.(3:33)
42. Attention All Passengers! (Intermediate)
Learn Italian with Podcasts! Most likely, the very first thing you will see when visiting Italy is the airport you are arriving to - In today's episode we'll talk about "viaggiare" (to travel), "aeroporti" (airports), e "aerei" (airplanes). We'll hear an announcement over a PA system and we'll learn some useful vocabulary terms you may [...]
This sequence presents the basic principles of bone and joint structure and function and to review many of the disease entities related to this system and to the soft tissue as well. General clinical approaches to diagnosis and treatment will be discussed as well.
All About Aid-Navigating the World of Student Loans
In this lesson, students create presentations for graduating seniors about how to navigate the college financial aid system.
Comparing EO-1-Hyperions spectral resolution to Landsat
The Landsat system covers 7 spectral bands (of which six are shown here) while the Hyperion instrument records data in 220 bands from 353 nanometers to 2577 nanometers. This animation shows how they stack up.
"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
Outdoor radio simulation
This unit serves as an introduction to the software A Radio Mobile, a radio simulation tool for outdoor environments. The focus of this unit is on the understanding of the different building blocks of the software. Rather than understanding how to simulate only one specific type of wireless infrastructure the learner should be able to apply the methodology to any kind of wireless system.
Additive number systems: Egyptian
In this session you will learn about the Egyptian number system.
Alphabetic and multiplicative number systems
In this session you will learn about the Greek acrophonic and alphabetic systems and the Hebrew number system.
Size, Scale and Distance
Students will understand how objects in the universe compare in size. Even in a "crowded" region like our solar system, the distances between planets are so vast that they are difficult to imagine.
Site Seeing Intermediate Level
The purpose of this resource is to investigate the idea that every dynamic system has energy and matter in different forms.
This lesson introduces students to the basics of wastewater treatment. Topics include the variety of materials that enter the wastewater system, septic tanks, and municipal treatment systems. Students can review online resources that describe the processes.
Newton's Second Law
This lesson introduces students to Sir Isaac Newton's Second Law of Motion. Topics include the two ways to study the dynamics of a system in which there is motion and a brief description of Newton's work in studying and measuring the motion of objects.
Scaling Galileo's Solar System - Times
In this activity students calculate how long it takes for planets and moons to complete their orbits, and their velocity, in a scale model solar system. The orbit of Saturn is scaled so it takes one day to circle around campus. Students recreate spreadsheets, shown in a Powerpoint module, with formulas that answer various pieces of the overall question. This module is the third in a series of four on the Galilean Solar System, and was designed for an undergraduate class where students are asked
Redesigning Urban Classrooms to Impact Student Achievement
Because of the No Child Left Behind school reform policies, public schools are gravely scrutinized. This analysis focuses on how to redesign the urban classroom in order to impact student achievement with the intent of being an impetus for better overall school performance ratings. All public school leaders are expected to adhere to the same procedures and guidelines regardless of the population served. The research exposes the fact that there is no comprehensive school reform that is a cure al
