I Can’t Take the Pressure!
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.

Air - Is It Really There?
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.

A Recipe for Air
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.

Applying Hooke's Law to Cancer Detection
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

Detecting Breast Cancer
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

Superspace: One Thousand and One Lessons in Supersymmetry
We introduce superfields in chapter 2 for the simpler world of three spacetime dimensions, where superfields are very similar to ordinary fields. We skip the discussion of nonsuperspace topics (background fields, gravity, etc.) which are covered in following chapters, and concentrate on a pedagogical treatment of superspace. We return to four dimensions in chapter 3, where we describe how supersymmetry is represented on superfields, and discuss all general properties of free superfields (and the

Reducing Racial/Ethnic Disparities in Female Breast Cancer: Screening Rates and Stage at Diagnosis
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

Mother and Teacher Interaction in Preschools during Parent-Teacher Conferences
The education of children has been a long-standing issue for stakeholders over numerous years. Various literatures recommend that formal learning should begin during the preschool years of a child’s life, and must include home-school partnerships. Empirical data has shown that parents and teachers who work together can positively impact a child’s success in school. This study sought to gain insight into the phenomenon of parent-teacher interactions in preschools, via the lens of symbolic int

The Impact of Retention on Student Educational Outcomes: A Five Year Study of a Group of Retained an
Accountability has become a major focus in educational reform and an increasing number of states and school districts are adopting policies to end social promotion. These policies generally include mandatory retention for students who fail to meet cut-off scores on high-stakes tests. Despite compelling evidence to the contrary, educators believe that underachieving students need, or deserve, to be retained and will benefit from repeating a grade. Using archival data from a large urban school dis

The United States Postal Service: A Case Study of Large Scale Government Transformation
The challenge of replacing the baby-boomer generation of employees is beginning in government agencies as they face a “tsunami” of retirements. This generation forms the core of middle managers or supervisors who are essential to providing the continuity in government organizations that serve the needs of citizens on a daily basis, or most critically in times of crisis. This same generation of government employees worked through decades of change in public administration. The 1980s privat

EMBODYING RESEARCH: A STUDY OF STUDENT ENGAGEMENT IN RESEARCH WRITING
College students often perceive the university as alienating; reading and writing impersonal research texts can intensify this sense of disconnect. College professors often feel passion and enthusiasm toward their own research yet find it difficult to create this excitement in their research writing classrooms. This qualitative study explored student and teacher perceptions and instructional approaches in a university research writing course, seeking clues to student engagement. Data collecti
