General introductions to the philosophy of mind tend to be ahistorical and vary greatly in accessibility and coverage. E.J. Lowe covers virtually the whole range of topics in his An Introduction to the Philosophy of Mind (2000). For less coverage but more detail see Jaegwon Kim's slightly more advanced but excellent Philosophy of Mind (1996). Tim Crane's The Elements of Mind (2001) is another very good but more advanced introduction to current issues and contains one of t

Shape Grammars for Innovative Hybrid Typological Design
This paper describes a new methodology of deriving innovative hybrid designs using shape grammars of heterogeneous designs. The method is detailed within three phases of shape grammars: analysis, synthesis and evaluation. In the analysis phase, the research suggests that original rules of each design component are grouped in subclass rule sets to facilitate rule choices. Additionally, adding new hybrid rules to original rules expands the options available to the grammar user. In the synthesis ph

Rock Cycle Animation (Interactive)
The rock cycle has no beginning and no end. Rather, it is an ongoing cycle in which rock — driven by tectonic processes such as volcanoes and earthquakes, the surface processes of weathering and erosion, and compaction — is created and destroyed. In this visualization and collection of animations from McDougal Littell/TERC, follow rock from its origins as magma through other stages of the cycle.

Proportions
Video starts with the definition of proportion, which is an equation of two rations, or a fraction equal to a fraction. On a proportion problem you can cross-multiply to solve proportion problems. They show what a non-proportion problem looks like and how to solve it (review). Then they show a few examples of solving proportions, using LCD on the fractions. Other examples and numbers are shown. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.
