Beem Letter, December 1861 (page 3)
I think if I was there I could get your Christmas gift; but certainly
it would afford me a great deal of pleasure to be able to give
you a gift of some kind, which I would most assuredly do if I
was with you tonight. It will be a dry Christmas to me. We
will have but little to amuse us, and nothing to remind
us that that it is Merry Christmas. But I am very comfortably
situated, boarding with a pleasant and religious family, and
I could not expect anything better while

This war is soon to terminate they are now strugling for life Atlanta is ours and there Army Scattered and disheartened I got a letter from Rude Cripe the other day he was well But nearly wornI wish he was where he could rest awhile there are no better boys than Rude Well Kate I Believe I have written all of interest and more So I am sorry your picnics are not more interesting though stay? This fall I think I must try and come and see how you are getting along this fall that is if I can giv
Inside the Human Body: The Respiratory System
This Web site from the Canadian Lung Association contains an excellent collection of learning resources about the respiratory system for grades 1-12. Content varies according to grade range; for instance, the section for grades 1-3 covers basics of lungs and their function with an illustrated story, coloring book, interactive games, and downloadable worksheets. Older students focus in on smoking, air pollution, and other issues in addition to covering respiratory system biology. As with the sect
Resources on Engineering Education
On this website, Dr. Richard M. Felder, the Hoechst Celanese Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering at North Carolina State University, offers guidance, tips and resources for using techniques that he has found effective in teaching college level engineering courses. Numerous articles on learning styles, assessment, and instructional techniques are available here to download free of charge. Topics include active learning, cooperative learning and an Index of Learning Styles, which is "an on-
Wind Energy Projects Throughout the United States
The American Wind Energy Association provides information on existing and planned wind energy projects throughout the United States. Visitors click on the US map to get a list of all current and new projects being undertaken in a particular state. For example, Wisconsin currently has three wind energy projects with a combined average energy potential of 6440 Megawatts. Tables provide the project location, owner, date online, Megawatts, Power Purchaser or User, and Turbine Units, as well as links
This site provides an excellent experiment involving cyclic voltammetry at a gold electrode. The experiment includes a detailed introduction to the topics of electrode capacitance, electrode reactions, and flux of the electroactive species to electrode surface. Lab report guidelines and post-lab questions are included.
Forensics in the classroom
This site uses crime scene scenarios to introduce concepts of biology, chemistry, and physics in a way designed to excite interest in the applications of forensic investigations. Students conduct a variety of experiments including paper chromatography analysis, hair analysis, pH testing, fingerprinting, and handwriting analysis to experience forensic science technology. The site is a collaboration between the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and Court TV designed for middle and high school
This web page features mathematical information about Archimedes' successful approach to finding an approximation to pi and an interactive manipulative that replicates the approach. The user can approximate pi as a number between the lengths of the perimeters of two polygons, one inscribed inside a circle and one circumscribed around the circle. The number of sides for the polygons may be increased to 96 with the value for pi always being between the two approximations. Similarities and differen
Can Corals Adapt to a Warming Ocean?
UM Rosenstiel School Ph.D. student Rachel Silverstein discusses her research on a potential adaptation for corals in a warming ocean.
Calculus (CA Textbook)
This Internet resource provides introductory information, concept or skill development in Mathematics for grade 9, 10, 11, and 12 students who are at grade level in a single student situation. This text was initially written by David Guichard. The single variable material (not including infinite series) was originally a modification and expansion of notes written by Neal Koblitz at the University of Washington, who generously gave permission to use, modify, and distribute his work. New material
This book emphasizes a succession of topics rather than strict adherence to the flow of time. In a general way, the chapters move from earlier periods of time to later periods of time, but their content and organization gives top priority to coverage of topics. While the "mainstream" narrative of politics and institutions is present in these pages, the emphasis is on social and cultural history wherever possible.

Artificial Worlds, Virtual Generations
The progress in the scientific understanding/simulation of the evolution mechanisms and the first technological realizations (artificial life environments, robots, intelligent toys, self reproducing machines, agents on the web) are creating the base of a new age: the coming of the artificial beings and artificial societies. Although this aspect could seems a technological conquest, by our point of view it represent the foundation of a new step in the human evolution. The anticipation of this cha
Will you be my friend? An analysis of friendster.com
Friendster.com was launched in California in 2002 with 20 users. Today, it has more than 27 million members and it is especially popular among Southeast Asian women. It differs from other online dating sites in that users must be approved before they can become part of a user’s personal network. This study explores what may have made the site so attractive, as well as how its users represent themselves in their personal profiles. Drawing on social constructionist and feminist theories, this th
Parametric study of low velocity impact analysis on composite tubes
As explicit finite element codes improve and advanced material models become available, such tools find more widespread application in many industries. This thesis reports the research study of the low velocity impact simulation on carbon reinforced polymer epoxy composite tube using nonlinear explicit finite element software LS-Dyna. Validation of the experimental results is done with the proposed finite element model in LS-Dyna. A finite element model is implemented on quadratic stress based g
Analysis of GFRP composite tubes for vertical pump application
Composite anisotropic materials are rapidly gaining popularity in various applications. A global trend is towards an increases utilization of these advanced materials in a variety of structural applications. The pump and pipeline industry, and aerospace industry are the areas where use of fiber reinforced plastics have potential advantages over conventional materials. This thesis presents the results of an investigation to predict the behavior of filament wound glass fiber reinforced composite p
