A video recap of flight day 4 of the STS-134 mission of space shuttle Endeavour to the International Space Station.
Similar polygons and triangles defined
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the concept of similar polygons. Applets show that polygons are similar if the are the same shape and possibly rotated, or reflected. In each case the user can drag one polygons and see how another polygons changes to remain similar to it. The web page describes all this and has links to other related pages. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Re
Linear function graph display
An interactive applet that allows the user to graphically explore the properties of a linear functions. Specifically, it is designed to foster an intuitive understanding of the effects of changing the two coefficients in the function y=ax+b. The applet shows a large graph of a quadratic (ax + b) and has two slider controls, one each for the coefficients a and b. As the sliders are moved, the graph is redrawn in real time illustrating the effects of these variations. Applet can be enlarged to ful

SeaWiFS: The Effect of the Congo on the Atlantic
By monitoring the color of reflected light via satellite, scientists can determine how successfully plant life is photosynthesizing. A measurement of photosynthesis is essentially a measurement of successful growth, and growth means successful use of ambient carbon. Until now, scientists have only had a continuous record of photosynthesis on land. But following three years of continual data collected by the SeaWiFS instrument, NASA has gathered the first record of photosynthetic productivity in

Students learn how viruses invade host cells and hijack the hosts' cell-reproduction mechanisms in order to make new viruses, which can in turn attack additional host cells. Students also learn how the immune system responds to a viral invasion, eventually defeating the viruses -- if all goes well. Finally, they consider the special case of HIV, in which the virus' host cell is a key component of the immune system itself, severely crippling it and ultimately leading to AIDS. The associated activ
Fossils are preserved traces of remains of living things. Paleontologists who study fossils look for teeth, bones, shells, petrified wood, molds and casts, traces of carbon shadows, or even entire animals. Learn more about fossils with this slide show from StudyJams. Vibrant images are set to music while information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.

This patient education program explains depression, the symptoms, causes and available treatment options. This is a MedlinePlus Interactive Health Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine, designed and developed by the Patient Education Institute.
This series of activities provides a sample of possibilities for using the Digital Universe with your students. The activities were drafted in consultation with classroom teachers and museum experts, but have yet to be pilot tested in classrooms. They are an initial exploration into the educational possibilities for using the Digital Universe data set in the classroom.
Each word appears on the screen in both English and French. Each word is said four times by a native French speaker. (26:38) Note: For some reason, the word 'three' (trois) is not heard.
This animation shows the western fires burning in Montana. The initial frame is a SeaWiFS image showing the smoke plume stretching clear across the country. The camera zooms into the source of the fires, flying through the smoke plume, and revealing a composite image of visible and thermal Landsat7 data.
In this lesson and its associated activity, students conduct a simple test to determine how many drops of each of three liquids can be placed on a penny before spilling over. The three liquids are water, rubbing alcohol, and vegetable oil; because of their different surface tensions, more water can be piled on top of a penny than either of the other two liquids. However, this is not the main point of the activity. Instead, students are asked to come up with an explanation for their observations
