Investigating the German language
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Spring Semester 2010. This 10 credit module will look at some of the ways in which German has been developing in recent years. In particular, we will look at variation and change in sentence structure; ways in which new modes of communication (such as texting, chat rooms and other forms of internet communication) are influencing language use; and the use of particles (little words like doch, mal, scho
Improving the health of the population and evidence based medicine
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009 This module has two essential components: Evidence-Based Medicine and Public Health. Evidence-Based Medicine was introduced as a new discipline because traditionally the teaching of medicine was heavily reliant on an apprenticeship-type system with emphasis on learning from observing one’s teachers. One of the guiding principles in the NHS today is that all health care should be
Bayesian Reasoning with Graphical Models
This course motivates and introduces graphical models (with special attention to Bayesian networks) as well consolidated and popular tools with the ability to represent knowledge under uncertainty and reason with it, one of the main challenges in building intelligent systems in Artificial Intelligence. Uncertainty is modelled with probability theory and reasoning is based on Bayes’ rule. Bayesian networks represent factorizations of joint probability distributions. Nodes represent the variable
Let's Heat Things Up!
Students observe demonstrations, and build and evaluate simple models to understand the greenhouse effect, the role of increased greenhouse gas concentration in global warming, and the implications of global warming theory for engineers, themselves and the Earth. In an associated literacy activity, students learn how a bill becomes law and research global warming legislation.
It's Really Heating Up in Here!
Students create and observe a greenhouse effect model and discuss the implications of global warming theory for engineers, themselves and the Earth.
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
Presented by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the Earth Like a Puzzle Web site gives a visually interesting and easy-to-follow description of plate tectonics, the geologic theory that explains how the continents and oceans move across the surface of the planet. A highlight of the site, the Recycling Plates page contains an interactive map of the earth, where users can click to view the locations of tectonic plates, spreading centers, and their relationship to volcanoes and earthquakes. Altho
Manuscript Cultures from the course History of Information
This course explores the history of information and associated technologies, uncovering why we think of ours as 'the information age.' We will select moments in the evolution of production, recording, and storage from the earliest writing systems to the world of Short Message Service (SMS) and blogs. In every instance, we'll be concerned with both what and when and how and why, and we will keep returning to the question of technological determinism: how do technological developments affect socie
Cities, Industry, and Pollution in the Twentieth Century 1 from the course American Environmental an
American Environmental and Cultural History - Fall 2006. This course presents a history of the American environment and the ways in which different cultural groups have perceived, used, managed, and conserved it from colonial times to the present. Cultures include American Indians and European and African Americans. Natural resources development includes gathering-hunting-fishing; farming, mining, ranching, forestry, and urbanization. ...
E-Assessment using Latent Semantic Analysis
E-assessment is an important component of e-learning and e-qualification. Formative and summative assessment serve different purposes and both types of evaluation are critical to the pedagogical process. While students are studying, practicing, working, or revising, formative assessment provides direction, focus and guidance. Summative assessment provides the means to evaluate a learner's achievement and communicate that achievement to interested parties. Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) is a st
Good Neighbors and Bad: Religious Differences on the Plains in the Early 20th century
The harmony of rural life is often romanticized, but differences among neighbors, whether ethnic, religious or political, could often lead to tension, especially as new groups emigrated west. Ezra and Dan Miller were born in a sod house in North Dakota but migrated with a group of Amish Mennonites to Montana. In this 1981 interview, conducted by Laurie Mercier for the Montana Historical Society, they described how local cowboys reacted to the influx of Amish farmers.
Gimme A Break! Mark Twain Lampoons the Horatio Alger Myth
The ideology of success--the notion that anyone could make it with enough hard work--was widely promoted in Gilded Age America. One of its most famous proponents was the author Horatio Alger, whose novels showed how poor boys could move from "rags to respectability" through "pluck and luck." Between the late 1860s and his death in 1899, Alger published more than 100 of these formulaic stories about poor boys who made good more often because of fortunate accidents than because of hard work and de
'Dealin'' with poet and Pan African supporter Haki MadhubutiProgram focuses on the meaning, nature, and support of the liberation of African countries by African Americans. Program segments include an excerpt from Henry Johnson's film on the African Liberation Day March in Washington, DC, May 27, 1972 (including footage of Boston residents preparing for the trip to Washington, DC, and event speeches by Charles Diggs, Michigan Congressman and United Nations Delegate and organizer for African self
GP-B Educator's Guide
This 52-page booklet provides an overview of the history, science and technology of this mission, including an introduction to Einstein's theory of curved spacetime. The guide also contains 18 pages of hands-on classroom activities related to gyroscopes, curved spacetime, frame-dragging and other concepts related to the GP-B experiment.
This site contains a brief description of the separation mechanism in size exclusion chromatography. The picture helps visualize the separation, but is a simplified and idealized presentation. A companion site, http://users.rcn.com/jkimball.ma.ultranet/BiologyPages/A/AffinityChrom.html, describes affinity chromatography. The two sites together may be helpful in a biochemistry course where such techniques are used or discussed.
Adsorption and Chromatography in Bioseparations
This material was developed for a final year undergraduate bioseparations module. There are a number of links to sites for modeling adsorption chromatography. For example, a link to an Excel spreadsheet provides a demonstration of varying N, l, and K (or alpha)affect band separation. Other links explain adsorption isotherms in the context of bioseparations.
This is a general interest website in electrochemistry, offering answers to many common questions. Sections include impedance spectroscopy, quartz crystal microbalance, reference electrodes, simulation voltammetry, potentiostats and handling of mercury. A list of web and book references is available, as is a \\\\\\\"contact us\\\\\\\" tab for questions to the author.
PC Software for NMR, IR
This web site allows readers to download a variety of PC-based NMR simulation programs. NMRSM is for the calculation of spin-spin coupling patterns, the program FTNMR Simulator simulates the operation of a high field spectrometer and the program FIDMAKER allows the user to create FID\'s for subsequent analysis by students. Although these simulation programs are fairly limited in their scope, they will be useful for faculty at institutions that do not have access to a modern Fourier transform N
