Chanting and enchanting animals - Chap. 3/6 This video discusses disguises, colors and other tricks animals use. Video looks at frogs and the way protect themselves from predators, changing color, looking bigger, or emitting a sticky substance. It discusses how some frogs don’t need to hide because they are poisonous. The different feet of frogs and toads are another adaptation to their environment. Good quality video for students of any age from second grade on up.THe video could easily be used for

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

The Art of Teaching the Arts: Creating Rich Learning Environments
Arts teachers create a safe environment where students feel free to express their thoughts and feelings and take creative risks. In this session, participants meet an Acting I teacher who helps students let go of their inhibitions and an Acting II teacher who encourages students to take creative risks as they interpret monologues. In a dance class, a teacher asks students to work closely in pairs so they can study subtle aspects of movement technique. In a visual art department, the teachers wor
Did You Know 1.0
This inspirational power point, set to music, addresses the changing world we live in and encourages teachers to keep up with the technology and challenges of our students. Statistics and thoughts run across the screen while the music plays. One statisic states, "According to former Secretary of Education Richard Riley, the top ten jobs that will be in demand in 2010 didn't exist in 2004. We are currently preparing students for jobs that don't yet exist... using technologies that haven't yet b
How to Teach Kindergarten Students to Write Simple Sentences
Teach kindergarten students to write simple sentences by explaining to them that they're telling a story using complete thoughts. Help a child learn the beginning stages of writing with tips from a credentialed teacher. (2:05)
Aeneid 14 (1, 92-101)
Here, as the storm hits, we are taken inside the inner thoughts of Aeneas.
Students learn that when a figure is flipped over a line to
create a mirror image, the transformation is called a reflection.
Students are then asked to identify the figure that represents a
reflection of a given figure in the x-axis, the y-axis, or a given line
on a coordinate system.
Graphing Systems of Linear Inequalities
In this video, the instructor gives directions on how to find a solution for a system of linear inequalities. He provides an example, then goes through the steps to find the solution that satisfies both inequalities. There is a mistake at the beginning of the lesson which the instructor corrects with some text on the screen.
