Examine evidence of Earth turning about an axis
Using an animation of the classic pendulum experiment, this resource supplies middle and high school students with evidence of the Earth's rotation on its axis. The introduction explains that although pendulums are known to swing in a fixed path, on Earth their path appears to shift over time. As the animation reveals, it is not the pendulum's swing that changes--it is the Earth beneath the pendulum that moves. The animation contains three screens: two with different views of a pendulum swinging
Observe an animation of cave formation
Created for high school students, this resource presents an animation of how caves develop. A short paragraph introduces the animation, and text boxes in the animation supply further information. The movie begins with the acid in groundwater dissolving limestone and ends with the appearance of stalactites and stalagmites in caves. Movie controls allow students to pause, replay, or move backward or forward through the animation. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
Optical-fibre communications became commercially viable in the 1970s and innovation continues today. This unit will illustrate how very high data rates can be transmitted over long distances through optical fibres. You will learn how these fibres are linked, examine the technology used and assess the future direction of this continually developing area of communication.
Introducción al Sistema Jurídico Internacional y de la Unión Europea (2010)
La asignatura pretende ofrecer al alumno que por primera vez se enfrenta al mundo del derecho una aproximación al Derecho Internacional Público contemporáneo así como a la Unión Europea y su Ordenamiento jurídico. Se trata de dos manifestaciones jurídicas muy distintas a las que los alumnos del Título de Grado van a estudiar en las distintas ramas del Derecho interno español, pero que al mismo tiempo tienen en este un grado de penetración cada vez más importante. La asignatura está p

LUNCH IS GROSS!
Countdown to MIX11: Get Your Science On When the content team plans sessions for MIX not only do they take into account practicality and applicability, but
they also are tasked with programming inspirational content. And a lot of that mind-blowing, peek into the future content comes from the big brains working at and partnering with Microsoft Research. Charles Torre joins us this week to talk about the R&D presence at MIX this year, including both sessions and

Can We Talk About Alcohol and Drugs?
Drugs are everywhere — from online drug stores, to the medicine cabinet, to the Friday night party down the street. This video launches the Can We Talk? series that helps parents begin conversations with their children on sensitive subjects such as drugs. This is a good resource for parents and teachers. (3:20)
Water Safety for Families with Children with Special Needs
This video addresses the unique needs for water safety for families of special needs children. Special considerations for children with cognitive disorders and wheelchair bound children are discussed. This is a good resource for any adult working with special needs students/children such as parents, teachers, caregivers, and/or babysitters. (3:32)
King Leads the March on Washington
the March on Washington (3:10) On August 28, 1963, a quarter million people gather to support civil rights, and share Dr. King's "dream" of equality. This video is highlighted by King's "I have a dream speech" and the reaction to it. The efforts of the federal government to enforce civil rights is explained as well as how the March was organized and where.

Introducción al Derecho (2011)
Esta asignatura se configura dentro del Primer Curso del Grado en Relaciones Laborales de la Universidad de Cantabria, teniendo como finalidad, la asimilación de conceptos jurídicos básicos. A tal efecto, se efectúa una aproximación a la idea de Derecho; se estudia la norma jurídica; las fuentes del Derecho; el Estado y sus instituciones básicas; y los derechos fundamentales.
Constructing Sonoran Desert Food Chains and Food Webs
Is the food chain shown above accurate? Does the first link depict a producer, the second link a herbivore, and the third link an omnivore / carnivore? Students must correctly determine whether a species is a producer or consumer, and what type of consumer; herbivore, omnivore, or carnivore. Students will be provided with a list of Sonoran Desert species and asked to construct, within their groups, several food chains. These food chains will then be used to construct a food web. In order to comp
Fundamentals of Populations and Population Growth
This activity reinforces the concepts covered in the lecture presented during LESSON 3 of this unit. It takes the student through the definition of a population. Graphing skills are tested and the difference between the independent and dependent variables is explained. The S-shaped and Boom and Bust growth rate curves are next compared and contrasted. The activity then asks the student to analyze a data table and to plot its points. Students gain personal application of the lesson material. And
Adaptations for Bird Flight – Inspiration for Aeronautical Engineering
This activity first asks the students to study the patterns of bird flight and understand that four main forces affect the flight abilities of a bird. They will study the shape, feather structure, and resulting differences in the pattern of flight. They will then look at several articles that feature newly designed planes and the birds that they are modeled after. The final component of this activity is to watch the Nature documentary, “Raptor Force” which chronicles the flight patterns of b
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP) is an interesting and somewhat publicized environmental problem. A swirling soup of trash up to 10 meters deep and just below the surface of the waters is composed mainly of non-degradable plastics. These plastic materials trap aquatic life and poison them either by physical blockage or as carriers of toxic pollutants. The problem relates to materials science and the advent of plastics in modern life, a case of technology having unintended consequences. Stu
Sum It Up: An Introduction to Static Equilibrium
Students are introduced to static equilibrium by learning how forces and torques are balanced in a well-designed engineering structure. A tower crane is presented as a simplified two-dimensional case. Using Popsicle sticks and hot glue, student teams design, build and test a simple tower crane model according to these principles, ending with a team competition.
