Science in Focus: Shedding Light on Science: Workshop 7. Sun and Seasons
Light energy from the Sun is absorbed all over the Earth. In this workshop we will examine how the transformed energy heats the Earth unevenly, causing seasons.,The segment examines how the sun's path in the sky changes with the seasons, and how the tilt of the Earth's axis affects the number of daylight hours for people at different latitudes throughout the year.
The Alphabet Song in Phonics
The alphabet song set to the phonic sound of each letter.
Great Zoom out of Washington, DC: The US Capitol Building
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl

Check out the latest lesson plans from DiscoverySchool.com (last mentioned in the December 14, 2001 Scout Report). Eight new health-related lessons are available for grades 6-8 and 9-12, covering addiction, the human eye, headaches, weight control, and other topics. The lesson plans are clearly organized and may include discussion questions, vocabulary, evaluation guidelines, and links for online research. An archive of older lesson plans is organized by subject in a sidebar for easy retrieval.
Women in Islamic Societies
Notre Dame OpenCourseware (OCW) offers free educational resources for the course "Women in Islamic Societies" in the Program in Arabic and Middle East Studies. This course serves as a broad survey of women's and gender issues within the contexts of multiple societies in the Islamic world. The first half of the semester will concentrate on the historical position of women in Islamic societies, defined by the normative values of Islam and by cultural traditions and norms that were sometimes at odd
Surfaces are a special class of topological spaces that crop up in many places in the world of mathematics. In this unit, you will learn to classify surfaces and will be introduced to such concepts as homeomorphism, orientability, the Euler characteristic and the Classification Theorum.
24.111 Philosophy of Quantum Mechanics (MIT)
Quantum mechanics--even in the ordinary, non-relativistic, "particle" formulation that will be the primary focus of this course--has been a staggeringly successful physical theory, surely one of the crowning achievements of 20th century science. It's also rather bizarre--bizarre enough to lead very intelligent and otherwise sensible people to make such claims as that the universe is perpetually splitting into many copies of itself, that conscious minds have the power to make physical systems "ju
Popular Policing Video Lecture Part II
This seminar is part of a digital course Trends in the Governance of Security introduced by Clifford Shearing which focuses on civic or popular policing John Cartwright focuses on a particular case of civic policing called the Zwelethemba model where local communities are involved in peacekeeping in the area of Zwelethemba near Cape Town This model of policing is a method of governing security at the local level which is informed by and mobilizes local capacity and knowledgeLearning across Borde
Mental Health: Schizophrenia
The term, schizophrenia, covers a broad group of disorders which affect the beliefs people have about the world around them. This results in disruption to their day-to-day lives and usually causes distress to them and also their families and friends. They may hear voices speaking when no-one is talking or believe that others are against them when this doesn’t seem to be true: 'positive symptoms' refer to such hallucinations and delusions, 'negative symptoms' include amotivation and social with
To Master a Tool
The tool here is the computer or to be precise, a unit that includes the computer, the peripherals and the software needed to fulfill a task. These tools are getting very sophisticated and user interfaces extremly friendly, therefore it is very easy to become the slave of such electronic tools and reach self satisfaction with strait forward results and attractive images. In order to master and not to become slaves of sophisticated tools, a very solid knowledge of related fields or domains of app
Generic Representations and the Generic Grid: Knowledge Interface, Organisation and Support of the (
Computer Aided Design requires the implementation of architectural issues in order to support the architectural design process. These issues consist of elements, knowledge structures, and design processes that are typical for architectural design. The paper introduces two concepts that aim to define and model some of such architectural issues: building types and design processes. The first concept, the Generic grid, will be shown to structure the description of designs, provide a form-based hier
18.310C Principles of Applied Mathematics (MIT)
Principles of Applied Mathematics is a study of illustrative topics in discrete applied mathematics including sorting algorithms, information theory, coding theory, secret codes, generating functions, linear programming, game theory. There is an emphasis on topics that have direct application in the real world. This course was recently revised to meet the MIT Undergraduate Communication Requirement (CR). It covers the same content as 18.310, but assignments are structured with an additional focu
