Harmonic Cloud Patterns on Jupiter
Regularly spaced clouds appear in Jupiter's belts, sometimes white spots and sometimes swirling waves. A polar projection of Jupiter, made by NASA from the 2000 flyby, allows accurate testing of the hypothesis that these waves form as predicted by the Harmonics Theory. It is found that expected strong harmonics 12, 24 and 72 are present.
What are the house rules? Hoe druk ik uit wat verboden of toegelaten is
Op het einde van deze les kun je iemand die in jouw kamer/huis komt logeren schriftelijk uitleggen wat de huisregels zijn.
I'd like to live in..
Op het einde van deze les kun je uitleggen waar je het liefst zou wonen in Engeland.
Reading, vocabulary, structuring: We love to shop!
The student practices their reading skills and vocabulary in relation to various types of shops. He/she learns to structure information by comparing two texts with each other.
A historical or a literary walk? Both!
Op het einde van deze les kun je beschrijven welke stadswandelingje zelf zou uitkiezen en waarom.
Slipping and Rolling Wheel
The EJS Slipping and Rolling Wheel Model shows the motion of a wheel rolling on a floor subject to a frictional force as determined by the coefficient of friction ?k. The simulation allows the user to change the initial translational and rotational velocities of the wheel, v and ?, and the mass, radius, and mass distribution, R, m, and C of the wheel. By controlling these variables, the dynamics of the wheel can be changed to show the sliding, then rolling without slipping, of the wheel.
Perpendicular lines. (Coordinate Geometry)
An interactive applet and associated web page that show how to determine of one line is perpendicular to another in coordinate geometry. The principle used is that if two lines a re perpendicular to each other the slope of one is the negative reciprocal of the other. The applet shows to lines that the user can move. The slopes are continuously calculated as you drag them, and if the they are parallel they change color. The calculation is shown on screen updated continuously as you drag. The grid
Trapezoid and its properties. (Coordinate Geometry)
An interactive applet and associated web page that show the definition and properties of a trapezoid in coordinate geometry. The applet has a trapezoid with draggable vertices. As the user re-sizes the trapezoid the applet continuously recalculates its altitude and median from the vertex coordinates. The trapezoid can be rotated on the plane to show the more complex cases. The grid, coordinates and calculations can be turned on and off for class problem solving. The applet can be printed in the

Meeting God: Elements of Hindu Devotion
This Web site, created to complement a AMNH exhibition, explores the third largest religion in the world, Hinduism. It includes the following sections:Elements of Hindu Devotion -- an in-depth look at worship in the home, community worship, temple worship, processionals, ephemeral shrines and images, sacred acts, and renunciation. Portraits of Worship -- a collection of eight annotated photographs that shows the personal shrines of Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains in and around New York. Resources -- a
This expedition guide was written as a self-directed tour for the temporary biodiversity exhibit that preceded the museum's Hall of Biodiversity. The site continues to serve as a terrific resource for understanding biodiversity.
