Guidance for Industry: Bioanalytical Method Validation
This site is a pdf document for analytical scientists detailing what is necessary to make a methodology acceptable to the FDA. As such it should provide an \\\\\\\"eye\\\\\\\" opener to students trying to learn the analytical mindset. This site will be especially useful for instructors presenting material on method validation. It is also a valuable resource for students considering employment in the pharmaceutical industry.
Animations showing the detailed steps involved in 8 different immunoassays. The focus of the site is primarily on the biochemical aspects of the immunoassays, not on their analytical applications.
What Is Service Learning?
Learning in the context of real-world problems through activities that not only promote student learning but also serve the public. Environmental and analytical chemistry courses provide a background for using scientific skills to work with the community and gain an understanding of a scientist's role in society. A group of faculty was convened to examine how service learning can best fit into chemistry instructional programs.

Do women live longer than men?
This activity opens with a graph that depicts the life expectancies of men and women born in the United States. Students are asked to estimate the greatest difference between genders in the years between 1920 and 1996. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 real-world math challenges, introduces trend analysis and explains its utility to market research, radio stations, and manufacturers. The Hint tells students how they should read the graph to determine the life expectancy for
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This web site contains descriptions and links to more than 60 virtual manipulatives, activities designed to function as concept tutorials. The virtual manipulatives, mostly in the form of Java applets, are designed to facilitate grades 6-8 mathematics learning. By encouraging active student exploration with computers, the virtual manipulatives can help students visualize mathematical relationships. They are organized into five categories based on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (
Ethno-linguistic Fragmentation, Discrimination, and Access to Clean Water in Mexico
Access to water is very unequal in Mexico and indigenous municipalities are particularly disadvantaged. The paper analyzes empirically the unequal access to water across Mexican municipalities and across individuals for the period of 2000-2005 using regression analysis. The contributions of this paper are two-fold. First, it expands the focus of the literature of ethnic fragmentation and public good provisions from level to distribution; and second, it presents an ethnic fractionalizat
Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD)
The OECD groups 30 member countries sharing a commitment to democratic government and the market economy. With active relationships with some 70 other countries, NGOs and civil society, it has a global reach. Best known for its publications and its statistics , its work covers economic and social issues from macroeconomics, to trade, education, development and science and innovation. The site provies a myriad of resources on international econonmic development.
Theory and Practice of Online Learning
The second edition features updates on all chapters from the first edition and the addition of 4 new chapters (on Mobile Learning, Social Software, Distance Education Philosophy and Financial Decision Making). Two chapters (Chapter 3 - Value Chain Analysis and Chapter 9 - Copyright Issues)were not updated nor included in the 2nd edition. These two chapters (in addition to all of the origional 1st edition chapters) will continue to made available at this site, however readers are encouraged to ac
Statistical Methods in Biomedical Imaging
This resource contains the complete materials (syllabus, class notes, assignments, web-based software analysis and visualization tools) for a semester-long upper-division or graduate course on mathematical modeling, statistical analysis and visualization of biomedical imaging data.
Computational image analysis: from cells to tissues - Prof. Ioannis Kakadiaris
Principles of image analysis. Segmentation, edge detection, and feature extraction. Imaging tissue section images obtained by H&E staining, immuno-histochemistry, and multi-color FISH. Part of the Computer-Aided Discovery Methods course taught at Baylor College of Medicine.
Tools of the Trade
This OLogy activity offers kids a fun way to get firsthand knowledge of how archaeologists find lost sites. In Tools of the Trade, kids are given six cartoon frames, each illustrating a problem the archeology team faced in locating a lost mission on St. Catherines Island. When kids select a frame, they are given details about the problem; they are then asked to pick which tool they think helped the team solve the problem. Each time they correctly identify a tool, they are given additional detail
Attitudes Toward HIV Protease Inhibitors and Medication Adherence in an Inner City HIV Population
The objective of this pilot study was to examine attitudes toward protease inhibitors (PIs) among HIV-infected individuals and to assess the relationship between PI attitudes and adherence to PIs. Respondents were recruited from four AIDS service organizations in New York City; the total sample consisted of 97 HIV-infected individuals who were taking a PI. The sample consisted largely of African Americans and Latinos from inner city areas, and most had a low level of education. Adherence was sub
General Classification of Igneous Rocks
These lecture notes are part of a series of lectures available on the geology department website at Tulane University. Topics covered include criteria for the classification of igneous rocks, field identification of minerals present in hand sample, thin section examination and chemical analysis. The general chemical classification covers silica content (silica saturation), aluminum saturation, and alkaline and subalkaline rocks.
