Improving Your Commute
Road traffic is a challenging societal problem, and with the increasing crowding of areas in and around cities, it is only becoming worse. With the proliferation of wireless connectivity, smartphones (think cheap embedded computers), it is now possible to continuously monitor urban areas using mobile sensors carried by people
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.

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.
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.
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

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
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.
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.
This resource includes content and activities about writing articles. It presents information and examples related to structure, layout, language and editing.
How do you take a picture? Hopefully not like this! A fantastic example of a Rube Goldberg. A Rube Goldberg machine is any device that is a deliberately over-engineered or overdone machine to perform a very simple task. This would also be a great introduction for a lesson on simple machines or for the photography club. (04:13)
The video begins with what simple interest is: I = PRT, where interest is equal to principal times interest rate times time in years. Sometime time is only days, so then days needs to be converted into years. The equation is used to solve some word problems. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.
This sample shows the typical structure of silal, irons with high Si content (5.5-7.9 wt%). It is a grey cast iron alloyed with 4-6wt% Si to provide good oxidation resistance. The high Si content forms a dense, adherent iron silicate surface film, which is resistant to oxygen penetration. The flake graphite iron Silal was one of the first heat resisting cast irons developed. Spheroidal graphite Si irons have higher strength and improved ductility. The structure shows cored dendrites of ferrite w

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
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
