Algebra Problem of the Week
Algebra problems from a variety of sources, including textbooks, math contests, NCTM books, and puzzle books, and real-life situations, designed to reflect different levels of difficulty. The goal is to challenge students with non-routine problems and encourage them to put their solutions into words. Different types of problems are used to reach a diverse group of algebra students. A a href= /pow/support/ Teacher Support page/a is available for some problems.
7.346 Synaptic Plasticity and Memory, from Molecules to Behavior (MIT)
In this course we will discover how innovative technologies combined with profound hypotheses have given rise to our current understanding of neuroscience. We will study both new and classical primary research papers with a focus on the plasticity between synapses in a brain structure called the hippocampus, which is believed to underlie the ability to create and retrieve certain classes of memories. We will discuss the basic electrical properties of neurons and how they fire. We will see how fi

The Battle of Adwa
In March 1896 a well-disciplined and massive Ethiopian army did the unthinkable—it routed an invading Italian force and brought Italy's war of conquest in Africa to an end. In an age of relentless European expansion, Ethiopia had successfully defended its independence and cast doubt upon an unshakable certainty of the age—that sooner or later all Africans would fall under the rule of Europeans. This event opened a breach that would lead, in the aftermath of world war fifty years later, to th
