Stay in Shape
In this activity, students will learn that math is important in navigation and engineering. Ancient land and sea navigators started with the most basic of navigation equations (Speed x Time = Distance). Today, navigational satellites use equations that take into account the relative effects of space and time. However, even these high-tech wonders cannot be built without pure and simple math concepts basic geometry and trigonometry that have been used for thousands of years. In this activity, stu

Subtraction Across Zeros
In this video, a student shows how to subtract with regrouping using place value manipulatives. The student explains the problem step-by-step, writes the problem, and shows the problem with manipulatives. ( 1:34)
Identifying Figurative Language
This video explains how to identify figures of speech and figurative language through a series of questions. (01:35)
What Went Wrong with U.S Foreign Policy - US Foreign Policy After 9/11
US Foreign Policy after 9/11 - Spring 2006. Lecture - Steve Walt, Academic Dean, Kennedy School, Harvard University. This course provides an opportunity to study and discuss issues and events having recent international impact and/or interest. The course will present a multidisciplinary perspective on specific subjects with the intent of linking students with the scholars and scholarship involved in understanding and explaining current international issues, events, and crisis. The subjects will
The effects of acid rain on a stream in the forest
Cars and power plants that burn fossil fuels release smoke that is full of chemicals. These chemicals float into the atmosphere, get trapped in clouds, and make the rain more acidic. This is known as acid rain.
Sonia Sanchez: The Meaning of Malcolm X
Poet Sonia Sanchez, interviewed here for Eyes on the Prize, describes what the outspoken civil rights leader Malcolm X represented to African Americans in the 1960s.
Students learn about weight and drag forces by making paper helicopters and measuring how adding more weight affects the time it takes for the helicopters to fall to the ground.
Students design and build a paper rocket around a film canister, which is used as the engine. An antacid tablet and water are put into the canister, react to form carbon dioxide gas, and act as the pop rocket's propellant. With the lid snapped on, the continuous creation of gas causes pressure to build up until the lid pops off, sending the rocket into the air. The pop rockets demonstrate Newton's third law of motion: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Come On Over Rover
Have you ever wondered why it takes such a long period of time for NASA to build space exploration equipment? What is involved in manufacturing and building a rover for the Red Planet? During this lesson, students will discover the journey that a Mars rover embarks upon after being designed by engineers and before being prepared for launch. Students will investigate the fabrication techniques, tolerance concepts, assembly and field-testing associated with a Mars exploratory rover.

Daphnia with beating heart, moving eye and antennae - note internal moving structures.
This course covers transport processes of mass, momentum, and energy from a macroscopic view with emphasis both on understanding why matter behaves as it does and on developing practical problem solving skills. The course is divided into four parts: introduction, conduction, convection, and radiation.
