Introduction to Java Programming
This is a beginning course in the Java programming language. Students will learn object-oriented programming, and will create applets which can be incorporated into HTML documents for the World Wide Web.
Mesoscopic physics is the area of Solid State physics that covers the transition regime between macroscopic objects and the microscopic, atomic world.The main goal of the course is to introduce the physical concepts underlying the phenomena in this field. Study Goals: Reach understanding of electronic properties of meso-size conductors, appreciate/recognize the role of classical and quantum processes, being able to explain electronic transport phenomena using simple physical concepts.Author(s):
This website from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention features a comprehensive collection of information about malaria. Featured topics include the biology of the disease, methods of control and prevention, diagnosis, epidemiology, the history of malaria in the US and abroad, and recent and archived statistics on the geographic distribution of Malaria around the world.
This granite bust is most likely a representation of one of history's most famous women Cleopatra and is on display in the Galleries of Africa: Egypt. An iconic object in the ROM's collection, only three pieces of Ptolemaic sculpture like this exist in the world today.

World's Largest Sushi Roll at UMass Amherst!
The UMass Amherst community set a world record on Labor Day 2010 when more than 300 volunteers gathered on the Haigis Mall to assemble a monstrous California sushi roll which, at 422 feet, was more than 90 feet longer than one created at the University of California, Berkeley last fall. Thousands of new and returning students gathered for the event as Chancellor Robert Holub and Food Network chef Jet Tila presided over the massive assembly line, along with auxiliary enterprises executive directo
Moore's Law Forever?
In 1965, Gordon Moore observed that the number of transistors on a silicon chip doubled every technology generation (12 months at that time, currently 18-24 months). He predicted that this trend would continue for a while. Forty years later, Moore's Law continues to hold. Since the number of transistors in a circuit is a measure of the circuit's computational power, the doubling of transistor counts compounded over a 40 year period has led to an enormous increase in the performance of electronic
This site explains what to look for during a solar eclipse, how to create a pinhole projector (for safely viewing an eclipse), why eclipses happen, a world map of future eclipses, and archives of webcasts of past eclipses in Greece (2004), the U.S. (2002), and more.
Art and Ecology
Artists are often particularly keen observers and precise recorders of the physical conditions of the natural world. As a result, paintings can be good resources for learning about ecology. Teachers can use this lesson to examine with students the interrelationship of geography, natural resources, and climate and their effects on daily life. It also addresses the roles students can take in caring for the environment. Students will look at paintings that represent cool temperate, warm temperate,

With the annexation of Texas in 1848 at the end of the Mexican-American War, Tejanos--Texans of Mexican descent--lost property rights and political power in a society dominated by Anglos. Through discriminatory practices and violent force, Tejanos were kept at the bottom of the new political and socio-cultural order. From 1900-1930, as an influx of immigrants from Mexico came north to meet a growing demand for cheap labor in the developing commercial agriculture industries, Tejanos experienced c
