Smelling and Tasting
If you can't smell, you probably can't taste very well either. They are closely related functions. Receptor cells for taste and smell are located in the mouth and nose, respectively. As the receptor cells are stimulated, they send impulses from these organs to the brain's smelling and tasting centers, the cortices. For taste, impulses stimulated by the chemical compounds in food are sent to the gustatory cortex. For smells impulses stimulated by the chemical compounds in odors are sent to the ol

Basic Math: Lesson 2 - Equalities & Inequalities
This lesson consists of providing you with a Self-Tutorial on the basics of equalities and inequalities. I go over how to write results in interval notation, inequality notation, and set (set-builder) notation. I also explain in the printed notes how to use your graphing calculator to help you make comparisons between numbers.
Experimental Probability with Cube
Students learn that probability can be found by conducting an
experiment. For example, given a number cube that has the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 on its faces, students are asked to toss the number cube 6 times and use the results to determine the probability of rolling a given number, such as 4. Note that the theoretical probability of rolling a 4 is 1/6 (1 favorable outcome) / (6 possible outcomes), but the experimental probability may be different from 1/6. For example, if a student
CMS.608 Game Design (MIT)

Welcome to this Futures workbook on finding work. It is split into several sections describing different techniques for finding work. You can dip in and out of the different sections; however it is not wise to rely on only one mechanism for finding work. It is a competitive market for final year students and new graduates and so you should try many alternate ways to find work.
This month on UW360 join us as we take a closer look at the award-winning Odegaard Library renovation.
