President Warren's 2014-2015 Priorities
Kent State University President Beverly Warren shares her vision for the academic year.
Women in Maths - Lisa Mott
In August 2014 Maryam Mirzakhani, a professor at Stanford University, became the first woman to win the Fields Medal for achievements in mathematics, a medal comparable in prestige to a Nobel Prize, first awarded in 1936. Although around 40% of the UK undergraduates in mathematics are women, there is a well-documented leaking pipeline when it comes to women choosing to do a PhD and then choosing an academic career path. The proportion of women mathematicians declines rapidly the higher one loo
College Students, Social Media, and the Self
The following presentation is from my PhD dissertation proposal hearing. It outlines my study which attempts to inform an understanding of this generation of traditionally aged college students and their relationship with digital and social technologies. Specifically, it aims to understand how college students
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught Autumn semester 2009 Infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The body fights infection through the functions of the immune system, whose power has been harnessed by the development of vaccination (immunisation). Suitable for study at: Undergraduate levels 1 and 2. Dr Ian Todd, School of Molecular Medical Sciences Dr Ian Todd is Associate Professor & Reader in Cellular Immunopatho
Let the Central Bankers Inflate
Worries about central banks trying to create inflation are overblown.
Multidimensional poverty and inclusive growth in India: An analysis using growth elasticities
The talk explores why India has higher economic growth than neighbours, growth in MPI is has been much slower by examining three types of inclusiveness and elasticities to study responsiveness
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.
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?
In this OER Dr Alejandro Armellini introduces and leads the discussion on 'Engaging institutional partners in OER projects: what works and what doesn't?' as part of the online open space OTTER Symposium. Discussion includes contributions from Dr Samuel Nikoi and Dr Richard Mobbs amongst others.
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.
