ANSO 105-02, Introduction to Sociology, Spring 2003
Sociology is both an empirical social science and a way to view our reality and ourselves. The goal in this course is to teach both of these applications of sociology. You will learn the history of sociology, its key concepts and contributions, how to conceptualize a sociological analysis, and how to apply sociological concepts in order to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the world and your place in it.,This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office of Academic Affairs by
ANSO 300-01, The Map is not the Territory: cultural motifs, Fall 2000
COURSE STATEMENT: A study of mapping as seen as an imposition of meaning on the world. Maps create as well as represent the reality of the territory. This problem will be addressed cross-culturally. The course will follow a seminar format and will involve some hands on mapping.,This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office of Academic Affairs by the course instructor.
Six Traits of Writing
This 20 minute lecture is on using the Six Traits of Writing. It includes student examples and moves slowly through the traits.
1.3 Ways of viewing mental distress The first point to note is that there are two key competing ways of viewing mental illness or distress: physical and social. One of the functions of this unit is to draw together aspects of these accounts in order to cross the boundaries that they create and maintain. Our aim in this respect is to devise a third way, a more rounded and holistic approach that brings together the best of both worlds. In the meantime, though, the physical and social explanations predominate. Physical explanation

Using Microcomputer-Based Physiology Experiments in Investigative Labs in Introductory Biology
This resource is a detailed report on the use of computer-based laboratory experiments in undergraduate physiology courses. It includes general course overviews, recommended laboratory exercises, student and instructor opinions of new teaching strategies, and evaluation of the efficacy of the teaching strategies presented.
5.2 Frequency code
Hearing is a familiar and important human sense that is a topic naturally of interest to those who are curious about human biology. This unit will enable you to relate what you read to your own sensory experiences – and indeed many of the questions asked have exactly that function. This unit will be best understood by those with some biological understanding.

Saltatory Conduction in Neurons
This 12 minute video is about saltatory conduction in neurons. Saltatory conduction works because of cytoplasm and the axon being electrically conductive. Because the cytoplasm and axon are electrically conductive, the myelin prevents electrical
charge to leak through the membrane. The video starts with a review and uses graphic cartoon images and a lecturer.
18.303 Linear Partial Differential Equations: Analysis and Numerics (MIT)
This course provides students with the basic analytical and computational tools of linear partial differential equations (PDEs) for practical applications in science engineering, including heat/diffusion, wave, and Poisson equations. Analytics emphasize the viewpoint of linear algebra and the analogy with finite matrix problems. Numerics focus on finite-difference and finite-element techniques to reduce PDEs to matrix problems.
Inca Mummies: Secrets of the Lost World
Trek with archaeologists through the Andes and unearth the secrets of the Inca.
Incas: A History
A good video that explains the Inca culture, history, and demise. A map, word list, and timeline would benefit students when watching this excellent overview.
Physical Science : Green Energy Fuels
Green energy fuels are produced in a green manner, and these include biomass. Discover how the production of heat can result in the generation of electricity with information from science teacher Steve Jones in this video on physical science lessons.
Introduction to Caravaggio
A video of the work of Caravaggio. There are no titles of works (no text on screen at all), just brief shots of whole works followed by many tighter shots of details. Could be useful for purposes of focusing on style, and also to play "name that painting."
Biomes; an Overview
Explore the biomes around the world in this short, computer-animated video. This video will briefly cover the following key concepts: biome similarities and differences, biome boundaries, tundra biome, coniferous forest (Taiga) biome, deciduous forest biome, tropical rainforest biome, grassland biome and desert biome. The video ends will a 10-question, fill-in-the-blank quiz.
Helen Keller, Part III
This is from the Discovery Channel/Education series and this video is an animated biography of Helen Keller aimed at elementary school children.
