What is your experience of work and what did you learn from this experience? This unit will enable you to reflect upon what you have learned from work and support you in improving how you learn at work. It will encourage you to think critically about work-based learning and review your own professional knowledge and skills.
Today you will learn about tornadoes, how they are measured, and what to do in the event of a tornado. Using this information, you will create a plan that can be implemented either at home, in school, or in a public place like the mall, library, or movies.

Pollen Tube Formation and the Central Dogma of Biology
This resource is a detailed manual of protocols and instructional information for carrying out an undergraduate laboratory exercise in plant biology, including student outlines and instructors notes.
Plants That Aren't Plants: Mosses and Lichens
Mosses and lichens are not given much attention in introductory biology laboratory courses, in part because instructors lack skills necessary to cover the topic-namely, moss leaf cross sectioning and lichen chemical spot tests. Acquiring confidence in just these two techniques, as well as familiarity with basic terminology, lays a foundation for further investigation.
A tadpole is what hatches out of the egg that was laid by the adult frog. It lives in water and swims using its tail. It has gills and breathes underwater.
Sleeping Beauty Invades Rat's Genome
Knockouts are not just for Mice anymore. Aron Geurts and Howard Jacob from the Medical College of Wisconsin talk about their plans for creating transgenic rats using the Sleeping beauty transposon. Coming out of work pioneered by Colin Bishop's lab, Geurts and Jacob describe how the Sleeping Beauty system can be used to make transgenic rats and their plans to make the phenotype data from these rats available via the MCW PGA website (http://pga.mcw.edu) and the strains themselves accessible via a
Lezen, woordenschat: Highly recommended walking tours
De student oefent leesvaardigheid en woordenschat aan de hand van beschrijvingen van wandelroutes. Hij/zij leert ook wat meer over wandelroutes in Engeland.
"Electromagnetic Fields and Energy, Spring 2008"
"Published in 1989 by Prentice-Hall, this book is a useful resource for educators and self-learners alike. The text is aimed at those who have seen Maxwell's equations in integral and differential form and who have been exposed to some integral theorems and differential operators. A hypertext version of this textbook can be found here. An accompanying set of video demonstrations is available below. These video demonstrations convey electromagnetism concepts. The demonstrations are related to top
"Engineering Economy Module, Fall 2009"
" This intensive micro-subject provides the necessary skills in Microsoft® Excel spreadsheet modeling for ESD.71 Engineering Systems Analysis for Design. Its purpose is to bring entering students up to speed on some of the advanced techniques that we routinely use in analysis. It is motivated by our experience that many students only have an introductory knowledge of Excel, and thus waste a lot of time thrashing about unproductively. Many people think they know Excel, but overlook many efficien
Study says Earth on brink of mass extinction event
Subscribe: http://smarturl.it/reuterssubscribe June 18 - A landmark study by an international group of scientists has concluded that planet Earth is on the brink of a mass extinction event comparable in scale to the one that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. The researchers found that extinction rates are currently 1000 times higher than normal due to deforestation, global climate change, and the depletion of ocean fisheries. Ben Gruber reports.

The Cloning of Cells
In this lesson, students continue their education on cells in the human body. They discuss stem cells and how engineers are involved in the research of stem cell behavior. They learn about possible applications of stem cell research and associated technologies, such as fluorescent dyes for tracking the replication of specific cells.
Reference Resources: Being a Good Detective
Students become familiar with a variety of reference resources when seeking information. These sources include atlases, almanacs, dictionaries, encyclopedias, thesauri, online search engines for the Internet, and online library card catalogs.

2.5 A model of systems modelling Much, if not most quantitative modelling is carried out in the context of engineering, business and financial studies. These uses of quantitative models are usually not part of a systems approach. Furthermore much of the modelling carried out in systems studies is not quantitative, since issues can often be resolved by using diagrammatic or conceptual models. It is therefore important to clarify the systems context in which modelling in general, and quantitative modelling in particular, will

Paleoecology as a Classroom Tool to Address Global Climate Change
A laboratory activity to illustrate paleoecological techniques by counting pollen on slides representing six different time periods from a site in Idaho. Based on the class data,the students will be asked to interpret how the vegetation has changed at the site as the climate change over time.
