The Physical Environment: An Introduction to Physical Geography
This is an interactive textbook on principles of The Physical Environment. The Physical Environment is one of the first, totally online physical geography learning environments. The Physical Environment combines text, images, audio and video programs to deliver the subject matter content. A multimedia online environment enables new and different ways to interact with textbook content.
Toxic and Harmful Algal Blooms
These activities, in conjunction with Bigelow Laboratory's “Toxic and Harmful Algal Bloom" web site, will help your students gain a better understanding of toxic and harmful algal blooms. Each module below consists of background content material and related standards-based activities. Each module is independent of the others; however, some background knowledge is required to complete the lessons.
Patricia Dudar: Inspiring student athletes
For retired teacher and marathon runner Patricia Dudar — BSc 68, BEd 69, and MSc 77 — athletics teaches discipline. She sees this as one of the keys to success. That’s why Dudar established the Patricia Dudar Athletic Award in 2008, to help student athletes not be burdened by financial stresses and focus on their abilities, both on the track and in the classroom. “You have to return what you’ve been given,” says Dudar of the Planned Giving program. Through a planned gift at Conco
Optional Soil Moisture Sensor Protocol
The purpose of this resource is to measure the water content of soil based on the electrical resistance of soil moisture sensors. Students install soil moisture sensors in holes that are 10 cm, 30 cm, 60 cm, and 90 cm deep. They take daily readings of soil moisture data by connecting a meter to the sensors and using a calibration curve to determine the soil water content at each depth.
Teaching Advanced Architectural Issues Through Principles of CAAD
The paper discusses the differences between teaching CAAD by using standard software ("off-the-shelf"-software) and teaching the principles of CAAD ("principles-teaching"). The paper distinguishes four kinds of application for design systems in education: social systems, professional systems, educational systems, and innovative systems. The paper furthermore proposes to distinguish between computational issues and architectural issues relative to design systems. It appears that there is not a pr

USGS Natural Hazards and Public Safety
This USGS portal offers information about the origin, frequency, and distribution of natural geologic hazards and catastrophic events, and the resulting impacts on people, property, and the environment. Featured sites provide user-friendly information and graphics about earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, El Nino, hurricanes, and erosion studies. Information is available about both general topics and specific events, and each site includes additional links to a multitude of other resources within
Two Particle Elastic Collision Model
The EJS Elastic Collision Model allows the user to simulate a two-dimensional elastic collision between hard disks. The user can modify the mass, position and velocity of each disk using the sliders. Both disks are draggable and the center of mass is shown a a cross in the simulation.
Optical Resolution Model
The EJS Optical Resolution model computes the image from two point sources as seen through a circular aperture such as a telescope or a microscope. The simulation allows the user to vary the distance between the light sources and the diameter of the aperture, as well as the intensity of the light source.

Producing the Chelsea Flower Show - Karen Arrand
The woman who was responsible for getting the Chelsea Flower Show onto the television for the BBC talks to Coventry Conversations organiser, John Mair. The Chelsea Flower Show is a vital part of the English summer for those fortunate enough to visit the show but to those who watch it on the small screen, it has to capture the spectacle of the event live for 10 hours each year. Karen Arrand was the BBC producer responsible for bringing the show into our living rooms in 2000 to 2003. Karen took
Collaboration and Problem Solving in Distributed Collaborative Learning
Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis are utilised as resources for analysing distributed collaborative learning. Thematically we are interested in how a group of students manage their task, how they keep a joint focus, and how technology features in their activity. We present and analyse extracts of data from a group collaborating in a groupware system called TeamWave Workplace. We conclude that in collaborative problem solving the interpretation of the task and the problem solving process
This Flash animation provides a tour of the history of the universe, the solar system, and Earth. Moving the slider allows viewers to progress from the Big Bang, almost 14 billion years ago, to the beginnings of life on Earth in the Proterozoic era, through the age of the dinosaurs and finally to the time of Homo sapiens. When the slider stops moving, animations and text appear, highlighting important events. Other animations accompany the time scale and show the movements of the continents, the
