What Do Revision Choices Reveal? (Interactive)
This activity is designed to help you discover your students' growth as writers by the revisions they make in their writing pieces. You will see two pieces of authentic student writing — a poem and a personal narrative — as they evolved through multiple drafts, and observe how the changes reflect the revision strategies the students learned and applied.
Evolution of the Immune System, Spring 2005
Seminar covering topics of current interest in biology. Includes reading and analysis of research papers and student presentations. Contact Biology Education Office for topics.

Discoveries At Taposiris Magna
In this video clipm Dr. Hawass examines some very interesting artifacts found at a ancient Egyptian pyramid at Taposiris Magna. (2:30)

Newton's 1st Law of Motion - Khan Academy
This is another basic primer from Sal Khan about Newton's First Law of Motion. (05:26)
The Cockroach Beatbox
By dissecting a cockroach ... yes, live on stage ... TED Fellow and
neuroscientist Greg Gage shows how brains receive and deliver electric impulses -- and how legs can respond. (Launching a series on Awesome Nature) "The Cockroach Beatbox" was animated by the TED-Ed Animation Team (Jeremiah Dickey, Biljana Labovic, Celeste Lai, Kari Mulholland and Franz Palomares). (06:15)

Re-Thinking Progress: The Circular Economy
There's a world of opportunity to re-think and re-design the way we make stuff. 'Re-Thinking Progress' explores how through a change in
perspective we can re-design the way our economy works - designing
products that can be 'made to be made again' and powering the system
with renewable energy. It questions, whether with creativity and
innovation, we can build a restorative economy.
Joseph Hirsh: Deformations with noncommutative parameters
Joseph Hirsh, City University of New York Abstract: In this talk I will describe the classical yoga of deformation theory---that commutative moduli problems are locally described by dgLie algebras---and provide some examples. Then, importing tools from operad theory, most notably Koszul Duality, I will describe a generalization that classifies the local structure of noncommutative moduli problems. I will conclude by describing some ongoing work to exploit the relationship between noncommutati
Multiplication: Groups and Arrays
JC and his father decide to arrange flower pots in the garden. To do this, JC's father explains that they need to form an array using groups. (First 6 1/2 min. illustrates grouping to multiply.) Last 5 minutes of video shows a pattern for using smaller multiplication tables to form larger multiplication tables. (This segment more appropriate with advanced multiplication.) 11:28
Daniel Berwick-Evans: Spaces of field theories and the topology of manifolds
Daniel Berwick-Evans, University of California-Berkeley Abstract: We will explain a way in which geometric field theories can be used to study the topology of manifolds. After setting up the main players as defined by Stolz and Teichner, we'll focus attention on dimensional reduction and quantization. The former allows us to extract numerical invariants whereas the latter can be used to produce a linear approximation (in the sense of Goodwillie calculus) that builds a cohomology theory out of
Ulrich Bunke: Bordism, K-theory and eta invariants
Ulrich Bunke, University of Regensburg, Germany Abstract: I will describe and compare homotopy theoretic and analytic constructions of K-theory based invariants detecting torsion elements in bordisms groups. In the case of string bordism I will explain an example of such an invariant which factorizes over the string orientation of topological modular forms. If time permits I will explain a new version of Chern-Weyl theory based on differential K-theory which is useful to derive intrinsic expre
Pizza Parlor--Kindergarten Center-- Building Oral Language and More
In this video, the kindergarten teacher introduces a new center called the Pizza Parlor. Students use an order form to order the pizza they want. Students discuss what kind of toppings they like. This center is a great activity to build oral language skills in the early childhood classroom. (3:12)

Romney in London: Gaffes, glitz and greenbacks
July 26 - U.S. Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney will hope his glamorous London fundraisers are more successful than his attempts at diplomacy after he offends British Prime Minister David Cameron.
School Water Audit Program (SWAP)
The School Water Audit Program developed by Arizona Project WET at the Water Resources Research Center combines water education with practical applications of scientific methodology and water efficient technology. It brings community members together with students for the purpose of accomplishing a unified goal: water stewardship. It is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education in practice! http://cals.arizona.edu/arizonawet/teachersupport/swap
Great Zoom out of Beltsville, MD: Beltsville Agricultural Research Center
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl
The Sense of Touch: Rain
Your skin covers and protects your body. Your skin can also detect touch. If you are standing outside and rain drops begin falling on your skin, you will be able to tell that it is raining because receptors on your skin can detect the pressure of the rain drop touching your skin.
