4.3 The UK experience: competing trends
Global warming: are we responsible? Is our environmental impact damaging the planet? This unit examines the use of ozone depleting technology, the impact of fossil fuel use and explores how the development of technology can influence the direction of a society. From the Industrial Revolution to the present day find out how we have changed the planet.
3.1 Exploring your personal ecology
There is increasing recognition that the reductionist mindset that is currently dominating society, rooted in unlimited economic growth unperceptive to its social and environmental impact, cannot resolve the converging environmental, social and economic crises we now face. The primary aim of this unit is to encourage the shift away from reductionist and human centred thinking towards a holistic and ecological worldview.

These activities will give you practice in telling time. First, try Matching Time at this website. Telling the Time is easy if you practice! Please tell me, What Time Is It?
Global Cloud Cover with Fly Away
This animated sequence is a one month sample of composited images from cloud cover data collected from a suite of U.S., European, and Japanese geostationary satellites and U.S. polar orbiting meteorological satellites. This data was composited under the auspices of ISCCP, the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Program
Clouds over North America from GOES-11: August 3, 2000
This animation is one of a series showing the first data from GOES-11. The data shown was taken at one-minute intervals.
Stoichiometry and Limiting Reagents
You can access the problems below via the Load Homework dialogue in the File menu of the Virtual Lab. They have been organized by concept and ranked by difficulty (A ranking of 1 denotes an easier problem; 5 is more challenging). Word files for these problems are provided so that you may edit and distribute the assignments in your classroom. The following types of problems can be found:Determining stoichiometric coefficients, stoichiometry and solution preparation, textbook style Limiting Reagen
Professor Sir Michael Marmot in conversation with ANU academics
The economic, social and environmental determinants of human development and health equity. Three internationally renowned speakers discuss how environmental, political, economic and cultural characteristics of societies shape conditions in which people live, work and age. Inequities in these factors play a major role in producing health inequities in Australia, across the Asia Pacific region and globally. If set up well, economic development, trade, working conditions, urbanisation and healt

Household energy audit
Students review the electrical appliances used at home and estimate the energy used for each. The results can help to show the energy hogs that could benefit from conservation or improved efficiency.
A quantitative illustration of how non-renewable resources are depleted while renewable resources continue to provide energy. The activity requires students to remove beads (units of energy) from a bag (representing a country). A certain number of beads are removed from the bag each "year." At some point, no non-renewable beads remain. Groups of students have different ratios of renewable and non-renewable energy beads. A comparison of the remaining beads and time when they ran out of energy sho
Journey to the Afterlife
In groups of four, have students design an Egyptian funerary barge to transport the mummy through the underworld to the afterlife. The design of the boat is extremely critical in order for the mummy to have a chance to reach and enter the afterlife. In planning the design of the boats, students should be aware of the perils of the underworld. The student will be given the materials and tools the ancient Egyptians had at their disposal in constructing the boats. Once the students have determined
Engineering for the Three Little Pigs
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate the importance of rocks, soils and minerals in engineering and how using the right material for the right job is important. The students build three different sand castles and test them for strength and resistance to weathering. Then, they discuss how the buildings are different and what engineers need to think about when using rocks, soils and minerals for construction.
2.9 End of section exercise
Are you about to undertake a PhD in science, technology or mathematics? If so, this unit will help you to examine your work processes. You will consider and develop the nature of postgraduate work and look at the planning of work needed at doctoral level.
