Make Engineering Students Collaborate
Even today, the majority of university courses still consist of lectures complemented with exercises. Lectures serve to convey theoretical knowledge, whereas in exercises students work on assignments to consolidate the knowledge they have acquired during lectures, and to relate their knowledge to daily practice. Cooperative Knowledge Spaces will support natural learning scenarios in a virtual environment. This paper describes the experiences of a study held to evaluate a cooperative knowledge sp

OSU Science Pub: The Science and Politics of Being Born
As modern health care continues to evolve, so does the ongoing debate regarding giving birth at home or in a hospital. And no one knows that better than Melissa Cheyney, Ph.D., who holds the distinction of not only being a medical anthropologist but a licensed midwife, research director of the Midwives Alliance of North America and a mother. Cheyney for years has studied and written about the mechanisms that perpetuate the "home.../hospital divide." Her work has led her to support an "integrated

Two streams, two stories: How Humans Alter Floods and Streams
In this class activity, students determine the discharge of a 100-year flood for two human-impacted streams. This activity supports the quantitative concepts of recurrence intervals, floods and flooding, and probability. It is appropriate for a class of under 40 students. This assignment uses real data, asks students to graph and interpret data, examines the errors associated with that data and its analysis, and requires the students to look at societal impacts. Learning goals, context for use,

Introduction to Theory of Literature
This is a survey of the main trends in twentieth-century literary theory. Lectures will provide background for the readings and explicate them where appropriate, while attempting to develop a coherent overall context that incorporates philosophical and social perspectives on the recurrent questions: what is literature, how is it produced, how can it be understood, and what is its purpose?
Balls in a Box Model
The Balls in a Box model shows a system of particles is very sensitive to its initial conditions. In general, an isolated system of many particles that is prepared in a nonrandom configuration will change in time so as to approach its most random configuration where it is in equilibrium. What happens if we choose the initial conditions in a very special way? The default initial condition corresponds to eight stationary particles perfectly aligned on the x-axis. Two particles approach from the l
Inertial Oscillation Model
The EJS Inertial Oscillation model displays the motion of a particle moving over the surface of an oblate spheroid. The spheroid is flattened to an ellipsoid of revolution because it is rotating, just as the Earth is flattened because it is rotating. The particle is confined to motion along the surface by the spheroid's gravity; the motion parallel to the surface is treated as frictionless. The simulation shows simultaneously the motion with respect to the inertial coordinate system, and the mot
