Introduction to Philosophy II
This course is designed as a "topics-based" introduction to philosophy. What this means is that instead of working through the history of philosophy focusing on great historical figures and their views on different topics, we will focus on great philosophical topics and look at what historical and contemporary writers have said about them. Topics to be addressed will include the existence of God, the relation between the mind and the body, human freedom, and the foundations of morality.
Le Body Knowledge dans Motion Bank : le contrepoint chorégraphique (audio) La pensée chorégraphique est «une pratique épistémologique, qui traite de l’archéologie du
savoir». Ce sont là les paroles de William Forsythe qui a toujours voulu encourager une danse rendant
visible l’expérience que le corps a de lui-même. Poussé par le désir d’enquêter d’un point de vue

Painting with Negative Space and Silhouettes
Here's another technique. A great number of people find it easier to see or find images in shapes rather than from lines. When drawing from line the mind often gets caught up in symbols, whereas when focusing on contour or silhouettes it does not. For this reason it's worthwhile to paint the space around a person or object. (6:36)
Quantum Mechanics I
A set of resources (lecture notes, exercises and figures) linked to a second year course in quantum mechanics. Both processed files (html/xhtml/pdf) and the raw inputs are provided, together with scripts to convert the material. Part of the Skills for Scientists project.

TALAT Lecture 1253: Creep
This lecture constitutes an introduction to creep and to the creep response of aluminium and its alloys. It provides basic information on creep and its mechanisms; it gives a description of the more extensively used mathematical relations among creep variables (time, stress and temperature); it illustrates the creep response of pure Aluminium and of Al-Mg alloys; it provides a synthesis of the information available in the literature on the creep behaviour of a number of new alloys and composites
Could and should OER replace educators?
In this OER Chris Coetzee introduces and leads the discussion on 'Could and should OER replace educators?' as part of the online open space OTTER Symposium. Discussion includes contributions from Dr Alejandro Armellini, Dr Samuel Nikoi, Dr Richard Mobbs amongst others.
Engaging institutional partners in OER projects: what works and what doesn't?

Astronauts Speak: Gene Cernan
In this audio resource from NOVA, astronaut Gene Cernan recounts his harrowing experience during America's first attempt to do work in outer space.
Hear the Wave!
Developed for third grade. In this experiment, students will learn all about soundwaves. Using different techniques and objects, students investigate how different sounds are made from different objects, and how the soundwaves for each are different from one another. Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas on this page have been found, refined, and developed by students in a college-level course on the teaching of biology at the elementary
18.950 Differential Geometry (MIT)
This course is an introduction to differential geometry. Metrics, Lie bracket, connections, geodesics, tensors, intrinsic and extrinsic curvature are studied on abstractly defined manifolds using coordinate charts. Curves and surfaces in three dimensions are studied as important special cases. Gauss-Bonnet theorem for surfaces and selected introductory topics in special and general relativity are also analyzed. From the course home page: Course Description This course is an introduction to dif
Interview with Scott and Mark Kelly (PART 2)
Astronauts and brothers Scott and Mark Kelly are interviewed before their missions. Scott Kelly (left) will be Expedition 26 Commander and Mark will be the STS-134 Commander. The two brothers may meet in space when space shuttle Endeavour docks to the International Space Station in early 2011.
National Geographic Presents the Life ofAbraham Lincoln
This brief video is about the life of America's 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. It gives good basic facts about Lincoln's Life as well as old photographs. Great video to introduce Lincoln to students.(2:58)
Solving Equations Involving Square Roots
Algebra might be hard at 1st but easier once you have master the Square Roots, this video will help and explain all the basics with examples
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)
