Virtual Worlds Almanac
This is a project to create a free, complete, up-to-date, and reliable guide to virtual worlds. So far we have 159 entries on virtual worlds written and edited by people from around the globe.
Virtual Textbook of Organic Chemistry
This virtual textbook allows for visualization of 3D-molecular models while teaching principles of Organic Chemistry.
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Virtual Museum
Visit the online exhibits to learn about the standardization of women's clothing, weights and measures (crucial to industrialization), technology development during World War II, the first government computer with an internal program, the fall of parity, OCR machines, weathering of stone, Jacob Rabinow, and more.
St. Louis Virtual City Project
Welcome to the St. Louis Virtual City Project. This Regional History Project utilizes interactive web technologies to explore the history of the City of St. Louis and the St. Louis region. To help you explore St. Louis you will first need to be sure that your computer is equipped with the browser plug-in Cortona. It can be downloaded for free from Parallel Graphics (just follow the on screen directions). The website is best viewed in the most recent version of Internet Explorer browser and at sc
Introduction to String Field Theory
Introduction to String Field Theory
Chemistry 1 Virtual Textbook
This textbook is a reference text for General Chemistry, including the major concepts and ideas of chemical science, and a look at some of the major currents of modern Chemistry
Quantum Field Theory
The first free comprehensive textbook on quantum (and classical) field theory. The approach is pragmatic, rather than traditional or artistic: It includes practical techniques, such as the 1/N expansion (color ordering) and spacecone (spinor helicity), and diverse topics, such as supersymmetry and general relativity, as well as introductions to supergravity and strings. The PDF version can be more convenient than paper books, with Web links and a clickable outline (contents) window.
A Field View of Soil - Digging Around
The purpose of this resource is to understand that variations in landscape can affect soil properties. Students investigate variations in the soils around their school to discover that soil properties like moisture and temperature exhibit considerable variability across a single landscape. They also identify factors such as slope, shade, plants, compaction, which affect the appearance of soils and their ability to hold moisture.
Discharge and Sediment Transport in the Field
In this quantitative field activity, students collect field data on channel geometry, flow velocity, and bed materials. Using these data, they apply flow resistance equations (Manning and the depth slope product) and sediment transport relations (Shields curve) to estimate the bankfull discharge and to determine if the flow is sufficient to mobilize the bed. This activity requires students to utilize theoretical and empirical equations derived in class in the context of a field problem. Learning
Electric Field of Dreams
Play ball! Add charges to the Field of Dreams and see how they react to the electric field. Turn on a background electric field and adjust the direction and magnitude. (Kevin Costner not included).
Electric Field Hockey
Play hockey with electric charges. Place charges on the ice, then hit start to try to get the puck in the goal. View the electric field. Trace the puck's motion. Make the game harder by placing walls in front of the goal. This is a clone of the popular simulation of the same name marketed by Physics Academic Software and written by Prof. Ruth Chabay of the Dept of Physics at North Carolina State University.
Scalar Field Gradient Model
The Scalar Field Gradient Model displays the gradient of a scalar field using a numerical approximation to the partial derivatives. This simple teaching model also shows how to display and model scalar and vector fields using EJS.
Charge in Magnetic Field
The EJS Charge In B-Field model allows the user to simulate moving charged particles in two identical magnetic field regions separated by a zero magnetic field gap.
Magnetic Field from Loops Model
The EJS Magnetic Field from Loops model computes the B-field created by an electric current through a straight wire, a closed loop, and a solenoid. Users can adjust the vertical position of the slice through the 3D field.
Jackie Robinson: Beyond the Playing Field
This lesson offers primary documents illustrating how this groundbreaking African American baseball player advocated for civil rights. It incorporates the material into lessons on civil rights history, character education, and civic responsibility.
Virtual State Tour
Students will create a virtual tour of the state including geography, history, famous people, and points of interest using Sketchy.
Virtual Audio-Video Archive
The VAVA is a collecion of royalty-free audio and video files for teachers to use in their own creative exercises. We have also developed a small number of sample exercises that utilize material from the VAVA. The LCTL Project encourages teachers of all LCTLs to cooperate in developing new VAVA exercises using audio or video materials. Individual exercises might be very simple listening practice, or they might be more complex, integrating sounds, video clips into reading, writing, speaking and
Magnetic Field Activities for the High School Classroom
The following unit is designed to acquaint the student with the magnetic field. The assumed average student has some familiarity with the uniform gravitational field of classical Newtonian dynamics and kinematics lessons. This is not required however. The unit is meant to introduce the idea of a field through investigations of magnetic fields as produced by various common magnetic materials and direct currents. The difference between a magnetic field and a gravitational field is that a gravitati
Virtual Mobility 101
This course focuses on the importance of intercultural awareness when dealing with people from foreign countries, either for business or private reasons.
Igneous Structures and Field Relationships
This PowerPoint presentation is part of the Whitman College petrology course. The presentation illustrates the structural and field relationships of igneous rocks and igneous processes in pictures, cross-sections, and plan view diagrams. Topics include pyroclastic flows, explosive volcanism, flow area, columnar jointing in basalt, feeder dikes and vents, and numerous other concepts pertaining to igneous rocks. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/N
