Inheritance: Standing Up to Injustice and Cruelty
FILM: This lesson plan is designed to be used in conjunction with the film, Inheritance, which illustrates the lasting effects of the Holocaust from the perspectives of both a victim of Nazi war crimes and the child of a perpetrator. Classrooms can use this lesson to explore the responsibility of standing up to injustice and cruelty. NOTE: This film contains sensitive content related to the genocide of Europe's Jews during World War II. In addition to verbal descriptions of abuses, the complet

Data Tool Program
Data Tool is a data analysis tool for plotting and fitting data from laboratory experiments, simulations, video analysis, or any other data set organized into columns. A click of a checkbox in Data Tool allows the user to change the appearance of plots, see standard statistics for the data set or apply built-in linear, quadratic or cubic fits to the data set. Data Tool also includes a number of standard mathematical functions that can be applied to the data set, allowing for further analysis and

Thick Lens Model
The EJS Thick Lens model allows the user to simulate a lens (mirror) by adjusting the physical properties of a transparent (reflecting) object and observing the object's effect on a beam of light.Â  The user can adjust the concavity of the sides, the index of refraction and its environment, and the height and width of the object as well as the size of the incident light and the horizontal position of the transparent object.Â  Spherical aberration can be observed at large angles. You can examine

Inertial Oscillation Model
The EJS Inertial Oscillation model displays the motion of a particle moving over the surface of an oblate spheroid. The spheroid is flattened to an ellipsoid of revolution because it is rotating, just as the Earth is flattened because it is rotating. The particle is confined to motion along the surface by the spheroid's gravity; the motion parallel to the surface is treated as frictionless. The simulation shows simultaneously the motion with respect to the inertial coordinate system, and the mot

Foto: Modernity in Central Europe, 1918-1945
During and directly after World War I, four great empires (Germany, Austro-Hungary, Russia, and the Ottomans) crumbled precipitously, to be replaced by more than one dozen fledgling nation-states. The largely agrarian, in some cases semifeudal, societies of central Europe were thrust nearly overnight into crises of civil war, unemployment, or inflation â€” and beyond these crises into a world propelled by mass media and consumer economies. Becoming modern was attractive but also anxiety-provokin

Introducing Epic of the Persian Kings
Exploring exquisite Persian manuscript art inspired by the world's longest poem: the Shahnameh, or 'Book of Kings'. 1000 years ago in Persia the world's longest poem was written: the Shahnameh, or 'Book of Kings'. This epic inspired some of the most exquisite manuscript art ever produced - miniature masterpieces that on show at the Fitzwilliam Museum in the exhibition Epic of the Persian Kings: The Art of Ferdowsi's Shahnameh (11 September 2010 -- 9 January 2011). In this podcast, Charles Melv

GoNU.TV Game Recap - Men's Basketball vs. Delaware - February 15, 2011
Jawan Carter scored 22 points to lead Delaware to a 72-66 win over Northeastern in Colonial Athletic Association men's basketball action on Tuesday night at Matthews Arena. Chaisson Allen led the Huskies with 20 points and four steals and Kauri Black notched a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds. Neither team ever had a double-digit lead in a game that featured eight ties and 11 lead changes. The Huskies (9-18, 5-11 CAA) were up by four early on, but the Fightin' Blue Hens (12-14, 7-9)

Light, optics and lenses
Physical Science Content Standard B of the National Science Education Standards encompasses transfer of energy and specifically states, Light interacts with matter by transmission (including refraction), absorption, or scattering (including reflection). We begin with early investigations into the nature of light that culminated in the current understanding of the nature of light, both visible and invisible as the same physical laws apply to the entire electromagnetic spectrum. From there student

Geologic time: Eons, eras, and epochs
Not a geology major or mathematician? No worries! This publication contains resources designed to do three things. The first is to complement teacher content knowledge and its relationship to the nature of geologic science. Geology is not a laboratory-based science lending itself to traditional notions of controlled experiments; rather it is a historical science requiring different methods. Second, we supply teachers with hands-on/minds-on lessons to develop student understanding, and third, we

Midpoint Theorem (Coordinate Geometry)
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate how to find the midpoint of a line segment when the coordinates of the endpoints are given. The applet has two points on a Cartesian plane. As the user drags either point it continuously recalculates the midpoint of the line segment defined by them. The midpoint is shown both on the plane and as a continuously changing formula. The grid, axis pointers and coordinates can be turned on and off. The midpoint calculation can be turned of

Line definition (Coordinate Geometry)
An interactive applet and associated web page that show the definition of a line in coordinate geometry. The applet has two points that the user can drag. The two points define a line, and the user can see how the line changes when the points are moved. The grid, axis pointers and coordinates can be turned on and off. The applet can be printed as it appears on the screen to make handouts. The web page has a full definition of a line when the coordinates of the points defining it are known, and h

Intercept (b) of a line (Coordinate Geometry)
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the intercept (b) of a line. The applet has two points that define a line. As the user drags either point it continuously recalculates the intercept, the point where the line crosses the y-axis at x=0. Can be used in conjunction with the slope to derive the equation of a line. The grid, axis pointers and coordinates can be turned on and off. The intercept calculation can be turned off to permit class exercises and then turned back on

Horizontal line definition. (Coordinate Geometry)
An interactive applet and associated web page that show the definition of a horizontal line in coordinate geometry. The applet has two points that the user can drag which define a line. The line flagged when it is horizontal (slope=0) and the equation of the line is shown. The grid, details and coordinates can be turned on and off. The applet can be printed exactly as it appears on the screen to make handouts. The web page has a discussion on how to test for horizontal, the line equation and has
