21F.103 Chinese III (Regular) (MIT)
This is the third of the four courses (Chinese I through IV) in MIT's regular (non-streamlined) Chinese curriculum. The four make use of the textbook, Learning Chinese: A Foundation Course in Mandarin (unpublished, but available online), to which are added various supporting materials as needs arise. The foundation level covers core grammar, linguistic culture, basic conversation, the principles of the writing system, and elementary reading. Reading is primarily in the simplified character set t
Automation of Deck Bridge Representations
The bridge deck has a apparent simple shape, but it is the result of an adequate combination of two longitudinal geometric components: the deck shape evolution along de longitudinal section the layout of the road, that acts in simultaneous over a cross section, defining the deck exact shape. A geometric modelling computer programme was developed for box girder decks, allowing the generation of cross sections along the deck, defined with correct shape and location. In the elaboration of the deck
Definition of Parallel Lines
Students learn the definitions of parallel lines, skew lines, parallel planes, and transversals, and are asked to identify these types of lines/planes in given figures. Students are also asked to identify alternate interior angles, same-side interior angles, and corresponding angles. Always, sometimes, and never questions are included in this lesson. (00:49)
Oswald's Midnight Press Conference
The midnight press conference of Oswald held on the evening of November 22, 1963. The video shows Jack Ruby at the back of the room.

The Art and Craft of Inspired Writing (Charles Johnson)
Literary leader Charles Johnson didn't ask to become famous, his characters just begged to be unleashed. This University of Washington professor of creative writing and author of "Middle Passage" joins Upon Reflection host Marcia Alvar in a 1991 interview about character development, critical reactions and the effects of literature on greater society.

16.412J Cognitive Robotics (MIT)
Cognitive robotics addresses the emerging field of autonomous systems possessing artificial reasoning skills. Successfully-applied algorithms and autonomy models form the basis for study, and provide students an opportunity to design such a system as part of their class project. Theory and application are linked through discussion of real systems such as the Mars Exploration Rover.
Introduction to the Coordinate Plane
In this PowerPoint presentation the learner is taken on a tour of the coordinate plane. All aspects of the coordinate plane are pointed out and directions on how to plot a point are given.
Distance Formula (not_upside_down) - Yay Math
The upright version of the Yay Math Distance Formula video. Formula for calculating the distance between two points on a co-ordinate plane -- from a different perspective. White board in a class setting, some interaction, engaging, several examples of increasing complexity. The discussion is clear and understandable.

Graphing Ordered Pairs
A brief lesson showing where the x and y axes are located. In
addition, the origin is shown as are the four quadrant. Finally graphing ordered pairs (x, y) are demonstrated for the viewer with a paper and pencil.
Finding Points on a Grid Using Ordered Pairs (Coordinates)
In this video, I show you how to plot and locate points on a grid
using an (x,y) coordinate system, also known as ordered pairs. I also
show you how grids are divided into quadrants and how each quadrant has unique characteristics.
Voronoi diagram Voro [Schemata]: Application of interactive weighted voronoi diagrams as an alternat
This paper explores the application of Interactive Weighted Voronoi diagrams in business park master plans through site specific testing, derivation of zoning parameters and creation of an applet.

German Education Index
FIS Bildung Literaturdatenbank (German Education Index) is maintained by the Educational Information System (FIS Bildung), a network of almost 30 documentation institutions, and is hosted by the German Institute for International Education Research (DIPF). It is a searchable index to journal articles, book chapters, reports and other grey literature covering all aspects of education policy, practice and theory. This includes coverage of teaching, the economics of education, and all levels of edu
Integrating Energy Design Into Caad Tools: Theoretical Limits and Potentials
The study is part of a research aims to establish theoretical grounds essential for the development of user efficient design tools for energy-conscious architectural design, based on theories in human factors of intelligent interfaces, problem solving, and architectural design. It starts by reviewing the shortcomings of the current energy design tools, from both architectural design and human factor points of view. It discusses the issues of energy integration with design from three different po
Sustainable Development and Integrated Management Approach
In main stream theory of development, development measured by &quot;economic growth&quot; was the main theme. The meaning of “development” in the context of international development had evolved during the past 30 years. From the lessons of 1980s, particularly represented by failures and mistakes in development field in Africa and Asia, &quot;sustainable development&quot; has become underlying concept to plan, implement and evaluate the development practice
History: DaVinci's Outline In The Last Supper?
Did Leonardo DaVinci use his own shadow to create the outline of Jesus in The Last Supper? James Williams speaks with a researcher who has found evidence in Leonardo's manuscripts suggesting that's the case.
ESD.342 Advanced System Architecture (MIT)
This course provides a deep understanding of engineering systems at a level intended for research on complex engineering systems. It provides a review and extension of what is known about system architecture and complexity from a theoretical point of view while examining the origins of and recent developments in the field. The class considers how and where the theory has been applied, and uses key analytical methods proposed. Students examine the level of observational (qualitative and quantitat
