The Busy World of Richard Scarry-Imagine That - Windmills
In this video, Huckle and Lowly learn about windmills and wind. Windmills use the power of wind to harness the strength it brings. Windmills can do many jobs with their power. Windmills can generate electricity or pump water. Wind makes the windmill go round. This is a great teaching resource to introduce wind and its ability to work. Students will enjoy this short video (1:06).

Two Terrains - Distance, Rate, and Time - A Virtual Manipulative
This manipulative is from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics website. Some vehicles fly down the highway, while others are dirt-track specialists. This activity allows you to explore the relationships between distance, rate, and time. Can you identify the best path for a vehicle? Try to predict what will happen if you set on‑road or off‑road performance measures.
Note: There are more instructions by the manipulative.
10.52 Mechanics of Fluids (MIT)
This course is an advanced subject in fluid and continuum mechanics. The course content includes kinematics, macroscopic balances for linear and angular momentum, stress tensors, creeping flows and the lubrication approximation, the boundary layer approximation, linear stability theory, and some simple turbulent flows.
An Evening with Vikram Chandra
In the tradition of his favorite childhood writers, Dickens, Thackeray and the “curiously forgotten James Hadley Chase,” Vikram Chandra explores the seamier sides of human relations. In Chandra’s latest, sprawling novel, Sacred Games, his backdrop is Bombay, a city steeped in corruption from head to toe. Reading three s
Helium floats up the agenda
A recognised expert on energy technologies, Dr Bill Nuttall is predicting a healthy long-term future for the helium industry, with the gas playing a major part in both nuclear fission and fusion. He discusses the tensions of an evolving hi-tech demand for the gas with its unsustainable traditional fossil fuel source. Among the conclusions he makes in his co-authored book, 'The Future of Helium as a Natural Resource', are that more gas will be needed, reserves will have to be conserved and recycl
This video explains how to calculate the weight of a horse using Archimedes' Principle. Includes a demonstration with digital scales and an overflow apparatus. The forces acting on hot air balloons, cargo and cruise ships is explained by this principle from the ancient Greeks.
Marine architects and engineers use this basic principle to design floating structures - ships, submarines and oil rigs.
Suitable as a learning resource for an introduction to buoyancy and Archimedes in physi
Foundations of Medical and Veterinary Virology

Understanding What Algebraic Variables Look Like and What They Mean
In algebra, variables are placeholder letters (capitalized and
lowercase) that represent the unknown, or what you're solving for. This video shows you what variables can look like and what they mean. Understanding variables help make algebra easier.
O desenho anal?gico e o desenho digital: a representa??o do projeto arquitet?nico influenciado pelo
The use of specific computer softwares for architecture design have been analyzed and allowed researchers in this matter to consider a change in architectural creation method realizing new possibilities in the way they project. Based on our experience as architectural project teacher we can observe that more and more students project and present projects with their drawings produced by computer. This tools changing envolves other changings in the project manners as we can notice in some architec
plant and animal adaptations
This 2 1/2 minute slide show is set to music. Photos are large, clear and colorful with labels on each. Students must be able to read the brief labels to obtain the information. Several topics are covered, including examples of the parts of the plants we eat (roots, seeds, flowers, stems etc) plant dispersal (wind, water, burrs, animal waste etc) plant adaptations (broad leaves, needs, shallow roots, thorns, woody stems etc) and animal adaptations (camouflage, beak shapes, sharp teeth, cl

An Interactive Database (HizmO) for Reconstructing Lost Modernist Izmir:
The research project in progress in the School of Architecture at the Izmir Institute of Technology includes documentation and reconstruction (by 3D modeling in electronic media) of damaged and lost early modern buildings in the Izmir region. The research aims to analyze the differences between Izmir modern buildings and Universal Modern Style, and preserve information on architectural heritage for future generations. The project is at the phase of developing an interactive web-based historical

Runnin' with the Devil
Death Valley is the lowest, hottest, driest area in North America. In the summer, temperatures commonly run above 120° Fahrenheit. The hot dry air just sucks the moisture out of the human body. A person can lose over one gallon of water just sitting in the shade on a summer day in Death Valley. In this video segment from Nature, runners try to keep their cool as they race through Death Valley. Run time 01:54.

The course is intended both for graduate students who wish to develop a solid background in game theory in order to pursue research in the applied fields of economics and related disciplines, and for students wishing to specialize in economic theory. While the course is designed for graduate students in economics, it is open to all students who have taken and passed 14.121.
Job Interviews is one of several Futures workbooks which help students choose and prepare for their careers. Like the other workbooks in the series you can dip in and out doing the exercises which are most relevant to you. You might want to include the exercises or the output in your personal development plan or e-portfolio. Interviews are still the most commonly used method for assessing a person’s suitability for a job. In the UK 99 per cent of employers use selection interviews to recruit
