According to these authors, currently available online marketing textbooks are largely inadequate and outdated and lack the technical know-how and practical background that would make them applicable to students, educators and practitioners in the corporate sector. Quirk offers a dynamic and integrated learning experience that will ensure that students, educators and companies using the guide to eMarketing, will be in the know regarding the latest trends and best practices in this exciting spher
Bioluminescence: Living Light
This National Geographic lesson plan explores bioluminescent creatures and the underwater world in which they live. Using shoeboxes and black paint, students are directed to build a deep-sea model and inhabit it with fish made out of black construction paper. Students then use the model to describe how organisms use bioluminescence and learn about its use as camouflage. In addition to a detailed protocol, the lesson plan includes suggestions for assessments and links to additional information.

Map Your World
Map Your World is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about plans by mapping their rooms. The activity begins with a brief explanation of the variety of maps we use, explaining how archaeologists use plans. Kids are then given step-by-step directions for creating a plan that shows their room and its contents. Directions for two additional activities are included, Map a Bigger World and Map Your Room to Scale.
Cold War: Iron Curtain - part 1/5
1945 - 1947 The Soviet Union dominates Eastern Europe. Churchill warns of the consequences. Stalin insists that the governments of the Soviet Union's client states be procommunist. Impoverished after the war, Great Britain opts out as a world power. The U.S. assumes the mantle of world leadership.

Technology Enhanced Learning in Mathematics: the cross-experimentation approach adopted by the TELMA
This contribution deals with the work of TELMA, a European Research Team of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence. In particular the "cross-experimentation" project is presented. Such project was developed by TELMA to understand the role played by theoretical frameworks in setting up experiments using Interactive Learning Environments (ILE) for mathematics. The paper focuses on the methodological dimension of this project.
Harvesting Oil from the Earth
In this lesson, students investigate sources of fossil fuels, particularly oil. Students will learn how engineers and scientists look for oil by taking core samples from a model of the Earth. Also, students will explore and analyze oil consumption and production in the United States and around the world.
Land! Water! Sky! Oh My!
This lesson focuses on the importance of airplanes in today's society. Airplanes of all shapes and sizes are used for hundreds of different reasons, including recreation, commercial business, public transportation, and delivery of goods, among many others. From transporting people to crop-dusting, our society and our economy have come to depend on airplanes. Students will discuss their own experiences with airplanes and learn more about the role of airplanes in our world.
Students explore the impact of changing river volumes and different floodplain terrain in experimental trials with table top-sized riverbed models. The models are made using modeling clay in an aluminum baking pans placed on a slight incline. Water added "upstream" at different flow rates and to different riverbed configurations simulates different potential flood conditions. Students study flood dynamics as they modify the riverbed with blockages or levees to simulate real-world scenarios.
The Big Mo
Momentum is not only a physical principle; it is a psychological phenomenon. Students learn how the "Big Mo" of the bandwagon effect contributes to the development of fads and manias, and how modern technology and mass media accelerate and intensify the effect. Students develop media literacy and critical thinking skills to analyze trends and determine the extent to which their decisions may be influenced by those who manipulate a few opinion leaders. Note: The literacy activities for the Mechan
Build an Anemometer
Students create their own anemometers instruments for measuring wind speed. They see how an anemometer measures wind speed by taking measurements at various school locations. They also learn about different types of anemometers, real-world applications, and how wind speed information helps engineers decide where to place wind turbines.
A Closer Look at Oil and Energy Consumption
Students analyze international oil consumption and production data. They make several graphs to organize the data and draw conclusions about the overall use of oil in the world.
