21L.703 Studies in Drama: Stoppard and Churchill (MIT)
What is the interplay between an event and its "frames"? What is special and distinctive about stage events? How and why do contemporary dramatists turn back in time for their settings, models, and materials? How do they play with this material to create performance pieces of importance and delight for modern audiences? How do they create distinct, fresh perspectives using the stage in an era of mass and multi-media? What is the implied audience for these plays, and how does that clash or coinci
The aim of the Business Project is to give students the opportunity to combine work experience and investigation into an authentic business challenge, with a more in-depth research report. This not only offers links with potential employers but demonstrates understanding of the application of business principles in a real-world situation.
TALAT Lecture 3205: The Fluidity of Molten Metals
This lecture introduces the concept of fluidity of molten metal and its influence on the production of castings. The students will understand the relevance of fluidity, the means by which this is measured and the effect of alloy type. Basic understanding of foundry processes, phase diagrams, basic physics and mathematics background is assumed
Water use and the water cycle
Water is arguably the most important physical resource as it is the one that is essential to human survival. Understanding the global water cycle and how we use water is essential to planning a sustainable source of water for the future.

These are the raw materials for a learning activity about understanding, segmenting and targeting customers
Architectural Composition in Digital Space
In this paper the possibilities of using the computers at course of architectural compositions are considered. As the start point of the new teaching method of architectural composition we used the course of tradition architectural composition, elaborated at our Faculty. The course of Digital Architectural Composition was finished in 2002. The main goal of using the new digital media for modelling architectural forms was checking the new possibilities of form creation. Traditionally, searching o
An Evening with Vikram Chandra
In the tradition of his favorite childhood writers, Dickens, Thackeray and the “curiously forgotten James Hadley Chase,” Vikram Chandra explores the seamier sides of human relations. In Chandra’s latest, sprawling novel, Sacred Games, his backdrop is Bombay, a city steeped in corruption from head to toe. Reading three s
Life Cycle Analysis and Carbon Footprinting Session Outline
Part Three of Greening Business: Life cycle analysis is a relatively new approach to environmental management which seeks to understand the impact of all related aspects of a product or service over its whole life cycle from production to disposal. An understanding of life cycle analysis is essential to a holistic understanding of the impact of products and services and hence the environmental benefits of changes to processes. It also underpins the process of carbon footprinting.
Architectural References to Virtual Environments Design
Based on a comparison between the perception of digital and real construction, the development of virtual systems and the review of additional sources, this paper states some differences between the design of virtual environments and architectural spaces. Virtual-reality technologies provide advanced capabilities to simulate real situations, and also to create digital worlds not referred to physical places, such as imaginary landscapes or environments devoted to electronic activities, like enter
Understanding and classifying a stroke
Stroke is the third largest cause of death in the UK after heart disease and cancer. It is also the single leading cause of severe disability in the UK. Classification of stroke is crucial in planning treatment and is a good indication of prognosis This Learning Object helps individuals understand how to make the diagnosis of stroke using the Oxford Stroke classification. It is suitable for any health care professionals involved in the management of stroke but especially doctors and medical stud
The Reconstruction of the Past: The Application of New Techniques for Visualization and Research in
This paper focuses on the visualization of historical architecture. The application of new Computer-Aided- Architectural-Design techniques for visualization on micro computers provides a technique for reconstructing and analyzing architectural objects from the past. The pilot project describes a case study in which the historical transformation of a town will be analyzed by using three- dimensional CAD models in combination with bitmap textures. The transformation of the historic town will be vi
The package was written in 1996. Radio immuno assay (RIA) is a technique for measuring concentrations of antigens. Although better techniques have subsequently been developed from it, understanding RIA forms the basis for understanding these derivatives. RIA belongs to the family of competition assays which are widely used in science, medicine and related industries to measure the concentrations of biologically active molecules. This package introduces the concepts of RIA and will be useful to a
Estudo sobre o cognitivismo e o hipertexto, e a disponibiliza??o de material did?tico na internet [A
Internet has made the use of computer based teaching tools more popular then ever. Little attention has been paid to methods for providing schoolbooks in hypertext environment, though. The objective of this research was to develop propositions of methods and tools specifically for presenting textbook in interactive digital environments, paying attention to the characteristics and demands of contemporary youth and the characteristics and potentialities of hypertext systems, specially its associat
Economics of Social Policy
Economics offers powerful insights into the world in which we live. This level 2/3 economics course aims: • To remind students of some of the economic theory that they have studied in previous modules, in particular the circumstances in which private markets will allocate resources efficiently • To consider the justification for Government intervention in resource allocation • To explain the circumstances in which insurance markets will operate efficiently • To apply the theory to attain
Advanced Digital Manufacturing Techniques (CAM) in Architecture
Building projects today are not only born out digitally, but they are also realized digitally through "file-to-factory" processes of computer aided manufacturing (CAM) and computer numerically controlled (CNC) technologies. It was the challenge of constructability that brought into question, what new instruments of practice are needed to take advantage of the opportunities opened up by the digital modes of production, instead of whether a particular form is buildable. In this case of building co
Da Representa??o ? Modelagem (From Representation Towards Modeling)
This work intends to structure a conceptual and technical referential to guide the development of the ?Post-Graduate Drawing Course - from traditional tracing to computer graphics? (DTGC-IFM,UFPel, RS, Brasil), related to the process of using the computer technology for problem-solving in graphics representation. The referential intends to evaluate the level of development, and also orientate the investments with qualification of the staff, hardware and software. This study refers only to the pr
The program is a reference resource which improves on gross anatomy knowledge and familiarises users with normal radiographic anatomy. It provides clear and practical tuition through the use of radiographic images. These are accompanied by informative text and an image of the animal in position to help in understanding how the picture was taken.
