21H.931 Seminar in Historical Methods (MIT)
This subject is designed to give 21H majors and minors an introduction to the methods that historians use to interpret the past. We will focus on two areas: archives and interpretation. In our work on archives, we will ask what constitutes an archive. We will visit one or two local archives, speak with archivists, and assemble our own archive related to life at MIT in 2003. Once we have a better understanding of the possibilities and limitations of historical archives, we will turn to the task o

21M.030 Introduction to World Music (MIT)
This course explores the ways that music is both shaped by and gives shape to the cultural settings in which it is performed, through studying selected musical traditions from around the world. Specific case studies will be examined closely through listening, analysis, and hands-on instruction. The syllabus centers around weekly listening assignments and readings from a textbook with CDs, supplemented by hands-on workshops, lecture/demonstrations and concerts by master musicians from around the
Molecules in Liquid
As molecules in a solid get hotter, they vibrate faster and faster and eventually slip out of their lattice-work pattern. When this occurs, the substance melts, changing from a solid to a liquid state. Eureka was a series of short cartoons on physics that ran on public television in the 1980's. The video explains the concept in simple and well illustrated way. Good for students of any elementary school level.

Volcanic Eruption Song
A song about what happens when volcanos erupt: pressure builds up constantly until an explosion occurs. This is an animated video.
The Ring of Fire, Part 1
The Pacific Ring of Fire (or sometimes just the Ring of Fire) is an area where large numbers of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. (10:34)
Dating Lava Flows on Mauna Loa Volcano, Hawaii
For hundreds of thousands of years, lava flows have created intricate patterns on the slopes of Hawaiʻi's Mauna Loa volcano. Until the mid-1970s, it was impossible to know when each of the flows occurred. However, as this video segment adapted from NOVA describes, scientists are now using tiny artifacts of life encased in hardened lava flows to piece together the mountain's complex geological and biological history. Closed captioning included. Run time 04:36.
Mount Pinatubo: The Aftermath of a Volcanic Eruption
The eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991 was the largest volcanic eruption in 80 years. The explosive eruption deposited tons of ash on the towns and villages near the volcano's base. Even more devastating than the eruption, however, were the devastating flows of water and debris that resulted when monsoon rains mixed with the accumulated volcanic ash. This video segment adapted from NOVA depicts some of the impact of these events on the communities surrounding the volcano. Closed captioning.
MODIS Landcover of Europe
New NASA satellite-generated land cover maps are providing scientists with a detailed picture of the distribution of Earths ecosystems and land use Scientists can better determine how vegetation is distributed and land is being used around the world with new NASA satellite-generated land-cover maps. These new maps, based on a global digital database of land cover types Earth images that is updated every 16 days, will help scientists better understand the Earths climate and carbon budget and clim
