TALAT Lecture 2711: Appendix
This lecture presents design of the main structural parts of an aluminium alloy helicopter deck. Contains figures and tables.
12.581 Phase Transitions in the Earth's Interior (MIT)
This course discusses phase transitions in Earth's interior. Phase transitions in Earth materials at high pressures and temperatures cause the seismic discontinuities and affect the convections in the Earth's interior. On the other hand, they enable us to constrain temperature and chemical compositions in the Earth's interior. However, among many known phase transitions in mineral physics, only a few have been investigated in seismology and geodynamics. This course reviews important papers about

Discovery Atlas: Australia: Coober Pedy
Video describes how ancient knowledge is the 'textbook' of survival for aboriginal peoples reaching far back into their heritage. Songlines help them to know their country. Bush tucker (wild food) and animals are all part of this video on the nature of central Australia.
Circumscribed and Inscribed Circles
This video describes circumscribed and inscribed circles. A circle is circumscribed about a polygon if the polygon's vertices are on the circle. For triangles, the center of this circle is the circumcenter. A circle is inscribed a polygon if the sides of the polygon are tangential to the circle. For triangles, the center of this circle is the incenter. (1:39)
Calculus III, Fall 2006
This course is an introduction to the calculus of functions of several variables. It begins with studying the basic objects of multidimensional geometry: vectors and vector operations, lines, planes, cylinders, quadric surfaces, and various coordinate systems. It continues with the elementary differential geometry of vector functions and space curves. After this, it extends the basic tools of differential calculus - limits, continuity, derivatives, linearization, and optimization - to multidimen
SAGP Guide to Clinical Medical Practice
Manual originating from personal notes made over many years of semi-rural private and hospital practice in South Africa. A useful resource based on many years of semi-rural private and hospital practice in South Africa involving major trauma, surgery and obstetrics, in addition to the common problems of general practice. I have always felt it very useful to be able to confirm facts and figures at the bedside if needed and this has been the motivation that has taken me over 40 years. This meant
Sound Frequency: ( An Interactive Game)
In this Sarah Jane Adventures game, the deadly Rakweed is threatening the UK! Students transmit sounds with the same frequencies to help Clyde defeat the Rakweed. ( This link is for an interactive game and may take a few minutes to load.)
Law School Tour at Marquette University
Join 2L Peter Prigge on a walking tour of the Law School's new home, and hear from Professor Andrea Schneider as she describes how the classroom space and technology allow faculty greater teaching possibilities and why the building will be a recruiting tool for faculty from across the country.
MCC MAT050 Quantitative Literacy Module 3 and 4
Develops number sense and critical thinking strategies, introduce algebraic thinking, and connect mathematics to real world applications. Topics in the course include ratios, proportions, percents, measurement, linear relationships, properties of exponents, polynomials, factoring, and math learning strategies. This course prepares students for Math for Liberal Arts, Statistics, Integrated Math, and college level career math courses.
George Ellis on The Nature of the Physical World
On Thursday 17 September the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts GIPCA Great Texts Big Questions lecture will present an opportunity to hear one of the worlds leading cosmologists discuss the way scientific and everyday views of the nature of things relate to each other. How do relativity theory quantum theory and cosmological theory change our views of the world and the universe? How do they relate to every day life? George Ellis Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University
Colouring the Invisible
75 meters of coloured translucent vinyl covering 150 glass windows over 5 floors. 'Colouring The Invisible' is a short-term installation by Julia Vogl, postgraduate sculpture student at the Slade School of Fine Art to reflect the languages most commonly spoken by the School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies' (SSEES) community. Created from data which captured over 450 responses from SSEES students and staff, the work challenges identity and familiarity, whilst transforming the architect
Made up true story
Sam Winston, who also wrote/illustrated this work presents some ideas on the project he has been working on for the last three years. Winston’s experiments came from looking at the structures of different types of literature: from storybooks to bus timetables: “The way you navigate a timetable is very different to the way you read a short story” he comments. “I wanted to take these different types of visual navigation and introduce them to each other: a timetable re-ordering all the w
Lunch Poems: Myung Mi Kim
Born in Seoul, Korea, Myung Mi Kim travels to the root of language, connecting speech and culture in a rich web of immaculate phrases. Kim strips words to the bone, using fragments and white space to enhance her themes of dislocation and first language loss. She is the author of four books of poetry, including Under Flag, winner of the 1991 Multicultural Publishers Book Award, and Commons (2002).
Smithsonian Source: Transportation
This section is intended to supplement the curricula, textbooks, and materials you currently use for lessons that demonstrate the importance of travel and transportation in American life. The teacher-developed resources will enhance the classroom experience for both you and your students. You might start by viewing the short video, in which curators at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum discuss the achievements and legacy of Amelia Earhart.
Letters from the Frontier: Reading and Writing Primary Documents
By immersing themselves in primary sources (George Catlin's letters), students will learn the difference between objective and subjective writing styles. They will draw facts out of the letters to create newspaper articles in Activity 1, and write their own letters as if they were members of the Catlin family in Activity 2. These activities are designed to enliven historical figures, to connect the "current events" of the past with the current events of the present, and to help students read and
