Plant Cycles: Photosynthesis & Transpiration
What do plants need? Students examine the effects of light and air on green plants, learning the processes of photosynthesis and transpiration. Student teams plant seeds, placing some in sunlight and others in darkness. They make predictions about the outcomes and record ongoing observations of the condition of the stems, leaves and roots. Then, several healthy plants are placed in glass jars with lids overnight. Condensation forms, illustrating the process of transpiration, or the release of mo
"Must a Fellow Wait to Die?": Workers Write to Frances Perkins
Silicosis, a deadly lung disease caused when workers inhale fine particles of silica dust—a mineral found in sand, quartz, and granite—became a national cause célèbre during the Great Depression when it was recognized as a significant disease among lead, zinc, and silver miners, sandblasters, and foundry and tunnel workers. In 1938 the federal government declared silicosis America's number one industrial health problem and Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins convened a National Silicosis Co

Do you have a graphics or scientific calculator? If so, this unit will help you to understand the different functions and facilities available. With a focus on arithmetic, you will learn what a powerful tool this type of calculator can be.
Lezen, woordenschat, grammatica, schrijven: For sale!
De student oefent begrijpend lezen en schrijven aan de hand van enkele advertenties. Hij/zij oefent het gebruik van voegwoorden. Hij/zij kan zelf een advertentie opstellen om iets te verkopen.
Women in the Workforce
With so many American men involved in the war abroad, there was an extreme shortage of workers at home. For the first time, women entered the workforce in large numbers, learning to do industrial jobs that previously had been done by men. The shipyard "dress code" poster for women reflects the newness of their transition into blue collar work. In the early 1940s, when the photographs in this topic were taken, women working in heavy industry were a novelty and women building warships was groundbr
From 1991 until 1993 the Biosphere system supported people, plants, and animals. Experiments offered the opportunity for tracking in great detail the interactions among land and water ecosystems and the atmosphere. SimBio2 offers several scenarios in which students can generate simulation graphs using actual data from the Biosphere 2 experiment. Studentscan explore some of the problems that affected Biosphere 2 such as higher levels of carbon dioxide than expected and the resulting decrease oxy
UR in the Monument Avenue 10k
Members of the UR community joined the crowd of over 41,000 people running in the city's 12th annual Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10k.
Travel With Care Safety Tip 4
The City of Auburn and Auburn University have partnered to bring Travel With Care Auburn, a public safety campaign aimed at audiences using all forms of transportation: motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders. Throughout the week of April 4-8, members of the Auburn Public Safety - Police Division will be patrolling city streets and the Auburn University campus to bring awareness to traffic issues, while student volunteers will pass out informational brochures.

Professor Sir Michael Marmot in conversation with ANU academics
The economic, social and environmental determinants of human development and health equity. Three internationally renowned speakers discuss how environmental, political, economic and cultural characteristics of societies shape conditions in which people live, work and age. Inequities in these factors play a major role in producing health inequities in Australia, across the Asia Pacific region and globally. If set up well, economic development, trade, working conditions, urbanisation and healt

Guide for Developing “Quick” and Extensive Profiles of the Primary Internship Site
Interns work directly with on-site supervisors (mentors), home-school principals, or other principals, supervisors, or agency administrators on specified objectives for the number of clock hours designated in a signed agreement. The mentor or campus supervisor approves all experiences used for the completion of objectives. At least one reading is selected to facilitate the achievement of each objective in the internship. Reflections on the experiences, the readings, and the relationship between
Newton Rocket Car
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate Newton's third law of motion which states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction through a small wooden car. The Newton cars show how action/reaction works and how the mass of a moving object affects the acceleration and force of the system. Subsequently, the Newton cars provide students with an excellent analogy for how rockets actually work.
Application of the Hardy-Weinberg model to a mixed population of Bar and wild-type Drosophila
Unlike most population genetics labs, which involve simulations with beans or beads, this lab provides an opportunity to study a population of living organisms. Using Bar and wild-type Drosophila, students compare allele and genotype frequencies to Hardy-Weinberg expectations. Because the Bar mutation in Drosophila is sex-linked and incompletely dominant, students can determine the exact genotype of a fly from its phenotype. These data are evaluated to determine which (if any) of the five Hardy-

Newton Gets Me Moving
In this lesson, students will explore motion, rockets and rocket motion while assisting Spacewoman Tess, Spaceman Rohan and Maya in their explorations. They will first learn some basic facts about vehicles, rockets and why we use them. Then, the students will discover that the motion of all objects including the flight of a rocket and movement of a canoe is governed by Newton's three laws of motion.
