The use case specification of actions in the goal oriented knowledge based learning environment
The proposed goal oriented knowledge acquisition and assessment are based on the flexible educational model and allows to implement an adaptive control of the enhanced learning process according to the requirements of student's knowledge level, his state of cognition and subject learning history. The enhanced learner knowledge model specifies how the cognition state of the user will be achieved step by step. The use case actions definition is a starting point of the specification that depends o

To Survive at High Velocity
Racecar teams look to reduce the time it takes their cars to complete a circuit. They focus most of their efforts on improving what's called cornering speed, because it's in the corners, where cars must reduce speed, that precious time is lost. Using a mix of practice lap and actual race footage, this video segment, adapted from NOVA, highlights the forces at work on a racecar as it travels around a track. Closed captioning included. Run time 06:28.
Active Participation: Using Math Templates
Using math templates during instruction keeps each student actively involved and allows the teacher to informally assess each student's proficiency with the skills and concepts addressed in the day's lesson. Many teachers regularly use whiteboards to have students record answers, write terms, draw pictures, etc. The use of templates in sheet protectors extends this practice and eliminates the time spent drawing diagrams, etc., allowing students more time to demonstrate mathematical proficiency.
Approaches to Computer Aided Architectural Composition
We have a pleasure to present a book of texts related to computer use in the field of architectural composition, showing its various aspects. As the field of composition is very wide - the papers represent also a wide spectrum of interests and approaches to Computer Aided Architectural Composition: from formal experiments, based either on mathematics or intuition, through educational and design methods, examples from architectural practice, computer based analytical systems to a new (and revolut
Computer - Tool vs. Medium
We have arrived an important juncture in the history of computing in our profession: This history is long enough to reveal clear trends in the use of computing, but not long to institutionalize them. As computers peremate every area of architecture - from design and construction documents to project administration and site supervision - can ?virtual practice? be far behind? In the old days, there were basically two ways of architects working. Under stress. Or under lots more stress. Over time, s

Towards a targeted surfactant stabilized ultrasound contrast agent
Gas-filled microbubbles are highly effective when used as ultrasound contrast agents due to the large difference in acoustic impedance between the gas in the bubble and the surrounding blood. The surfactant-based contrast agent ST68 (Span 60, Tween 80) developed in our laboratory (US Patent # 5, 352, 436) and filled with sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), was modified in an attempt to make the agent target specific. Modifications to the agent were done by incorporation an anchor molecule, phosphatidylet
Measuring Health Disparities
Measuring Health Disparities is designed to be accessible to a broad audience of practitioners across all sectors of the public health workforce. In contains audio and interactive elements and focuses on some basic issues for public health practice - how to understand, define, and measure health disparity. The material is divided into four parts. Parts One and Two review what health disparities are, how they are defined, and provide and overview of common issues faced in measuring health dispar
