One of the strands of the Rutgers long-term study was to find out how useful ideas spread through a community of learners and evolve over time. Here, the focus is on the teachers role in fostering thoughtful mathematics.,Jersey City: Ice Cream Problem Algebra II teacher Gina Kiczek introduces a problem that helps her students learn the difference between permutations and combinations. What Is Pascals Triangle? An overview of the Arithmetic Triangle: what it is, its history, and how it is
Patient is a 52-year-old African-American male with a known diagnosis of myotonic muscular dystrophy. His neuromuscular symptoms began in the early 1990s with poor dexterity in the hands, dropping objects, and clumsiness with fine motor weakness. He is very slow buttoning clothes, putting on his shoes, brushing his teeth, shaving, and other similar activities. He has trouble in ambulation and falls frequently. He has trouble getting up from a chair or sofa and climbing stairs. He also reports co
In Part II, we will lay out a plan for an educational Web server that goes beyond what is currently available, providing a truly vital and useful resource for classroom learning. Finally, we will describe current plans for the CoVis Geosciences Web Server, an educational Web resource designed according to the plans outlined in this article.,web document
Shwetak Patel heads up the University of Washington's Ubiquitous Computing Research Lab where researchers combine computing technology, computer science and electrical engineering to solve health and energy problems.
The goal of this activity is for students to learn how to tell a story in order to make a complex topic (such as global warming or ozone holes) easier for a reader to grasp. Students realize that the narrative impulse underlies even scientific and technical writing and gain a better understanding of the role of myth as a “science” of imagination that helps us to gain insight into human motivation.
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a unif
The application of engineering principles is explored in the creation of mobiles. As students create their own mobiles, they take into consideration the forces of gravity and convection air currents. They learn how an understanding of balancing forces is important in both art and engineering design.
Students develop an understanding of air pressure by using candy or cookie wafers to model how it changes with altitude, by comparing its magnitude to gravitational force per unit area, and by observing its magnitude with an aluminum can crushing experiment.
Students develop an understanding of the effects of invisible air pollutants with a rubber band and hanger air test and a bean plant experiment. They also learn about methods of reducing invisible air pollutants.
Students develop their understanding of visible air pollutants with an incomplete combustion demonstration, a “smog in a jar” demonstration, and by building simple particulate matter collectors.
By watching and performing several simple experiments, students develop an understanding of the properties of air: it has mass, it takes up space, it can move, it exerts pressure, it can do work.
Why do we care about air? Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in... most, if not all, humans do this automatically. Do we really know what is in the air we breathe? In this activity, students use M&Ms® to create a pie graph that expresses their understanding of the composition of air. The students discuss why knowing this information is important to engineers and how they use this information to improve technology to improve our planet.
In this activity, students will explore Hooke’s Law in small groups at their lab bench. They will collect displacement data for a spring with an unknown spring constant, k, by adding various masses of known weight. After exploring Hooke’s law and answering a series of application questions, students are asked to apply their understanding to explore a tissue of known surface area. Students will then use the necessary relationships to depict a cancerous tumor amidst normal tissue by creating a
This lesson introduces students to their task of developing a painless means of identifying cancerous tumors. Solving the challenge will depend on an understanding of the properties of stress and strain. After being introduced to the challenge question, students will generate ideas and consider the knowledge required to solve the challenge question. After which, students will read an expert’s opinion on ultrasound imaging and the potentials for detecting cancerous tumors. This interview will h
In the electrical engineering, solid-state materials and the properties play an essential role. A thorough understanding of the physics of metals, insulators and semiconductor materials is essential for designing new electronic devices and circuits. After short introduction of the IC fabrication process, the course starts with the crystallography. This will be followed by the basic principle of the quantum mechanics, the sold-state physics, band-structure and the relation with electrical propert
Objectives. We assessed whether population rates of mammography screening, and their changes over time, were associated with improvements in breast cancer stage at diagnosis and whether the strength of this association varied by race/ethnicity. Methods. We analyzed state cancer registry data linked to socioeconomic characteristics of patients’ areas of residence for 1990–1998 time trends in the likelihood of early stage diagnosis. We appended each cancer registry record with matching subgro
Through viewing and discussion of the video and investigation of the Web resources, students will develop a deeper understanding of rationing and the mathematics needed in a WWII household.
