GEOLogic: Continental Drift and Plate Tectonics
GEOLogic questions are puzzles that were developed to support students understanding of geoscience concepts while challenging them to develop better logic and problem solving skills. In this exercise, students are asked to match up lecturers with what day and time they teach, and how many students they have in each class based on clues given from several different perspectives. In the second part of the activity, students are asked to learn more about the historic figures mentioned by doing read

Investigate why astronauts need calcium in space and observe that bones can be hollow and strong.
We'd Like to Thank You, Herbert Hoover
Since the advent of book musicals such as "Show Boat" and "Oklahoma!", many Broadway shows have touched upon relevant social and historical issues. In this lesson, students will investigate how Broadway musicals can reflect the times in which they were created. Students will examine video clips and Web sites related to relevant productions, study song lyrics, and compare and contrast actual history with Broadway history. By becoming "historical detectives," they will determine how accurately Bro
Cardiovascular Function Lab
The CFL simulation includes two models: the original Isolated Heart Lab, which models an isolated left ventricle, and a new Closed Circulation Lab The Closed Circulation Lab models the entire circulatory loop: left ventricle, peripheral circulation, right ventricle, and pulmonary circulation. Both models include numerous input parameters that can be controlled by the user. Some of these parameters are shown in Figures 1 and 2. By manipulating these physiological variables, students can

Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interviewer identifies the student's ideas about the interior of the earth being made up of hot magma by asking her to draw a picture. When the student mentions volcanoes, the interviewer probes further to ask her to explain what a volcano is.
Prion Problem Space
Prions are relatively small proteins that display dramatically alternate conformations for similar primary structures. Abnormal conformations appear to cause fatal neurological diseases in a wide variety of mammals. Researchers are discovering the mechanisms behind these conformational changes, including differences that may lead to species barriers (or lack thereof) among exposed animals. How do these conformations differ? How do small sequence differences affect susceptibility to conformationa
Harvard Peabody Museum Zooarchaeology Laboratory Reference Collection
The Zooarchaeology Laboratory of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, was established in 1981 in order to facilitate the analysis of faunal remains from archaeological sites (also called Archaeozoology). Presently covering more than 850 square feet (79 square meters) on the third floor of the museum, the laboratory provides working and storage space for students and researchers who carry out studies on animal bones and teeth from around the world. It is also a tea
Guide For Tutors In Disciplines In The Humanities And Social Sciences
Since you are reading this, you are, or are about to become, a tutor (n.). Congratulations. This is an achievement, and one which you can use to extend yourself as well as to make a real difference to the lives of fellow students.

International Space Station
This lesson was created to enable students in middle school to research the possibility of sustaining life in outer space. These students would be about 11 or 12 years old. The students would address the questions: What essentials would be necessary for maintaining the space station, what would it look like and why, how would food be supplied and replenished, what health factors might need to be addressed, how would they fuel the space station and various other instruments, how would families li
Cordel do Fogo Encantado: "Jackhammering" Sedimented Representations of the Brazilian Northeast
Within Brazil, the Northeast region has been represented in popular music, literature and film as a wellspring of cultural authenticity, pre-modern roots and a living past. However, it has also been the site of terrible periodic droughts and mass migrations that have contributed to it being portrayed as a space of misery. Linked to its status as a space of poverty, the arid serta
This video describes how sine ratios, along with cosine and tangent ratios, are ratios of the lengths of two sides of the triangle. Sine ratios in particular are the ratios of the length of the side opposite the angle they represent over the hypotenuse. Sine ratios are useful in trigonometry when dealing with triangles and circles. (2:41)
