Floating and Falling Flows
Students discover fluid dynamics related to buoyancy through experimentation and optional photography. Using one set of fluids, they make light fluids rise through denser fluids. Using another set, they make dense fluids sink through a lighter fluid. In both cases, they see and record beautiful fluid motion. Activities are also suitable as class demonstrations. The natural beauty of fluid flow opens the door to seeing the beauty of physics in general.
Introduction to Statistics
Introduction to Statistics. Random Variable, Mean, Variance, Standard Deviation and Mathematical Expectation. Discrete Distributions: Bernoulli trials and Bernoulli distribution, geometric distribution, Poisson distribution. Continuous Distributions: random variables of the continuous type, uniform distribution, exponential distribution, gamma distribution, chi-square distribution, normal distribution, t-distributions. Estimation: biased and unbiased esimators, convidence intervals for means, co
Music and sound are two different concepts that share much in common. Determining the difference between the two can sometimes be difficult due to the subjective nature of deciding what is or is not music. The goal of this activity is to take something constructed by students, that would be normally classified as just sound and have the class work together to make what can be perceived to be music. Students will construct a basic stringed instrument made of a shoebox and rubber bands. This activ

3.6 End of seciton exercises
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.
Strength of Materials
Students learn about the variety of materials used by engineers in the design and construction of modern bridges. They also find out about the material properties important to bridge construction and consider the advantages and disadvantages of steel and concrete as common bridge-building materials to handle compressive and tensile forces.
1.2 The myth of the artist
Accounts of Caravaggio's life are filled with suggestions of murder and intrigue. But does knowing more about this dark artist's experiences help us to interpret his art? Or does understanding his motivations cloud their true meaning? This unit explores the biographical monograph, one of the most common forms of art history writing.

7.342 Powerhouse Rules: The Role of Mitochondria in Human Diseases (MIT)
The primary role of mitochondria is to produce 90% of a cell's energy in the form of ATP through a process called oxidative phosphorylation. A variety of clinical disorders have been shown to include "mitochondrial dysfunction," which loosely refers to defective oxidative phosphorylation and usually coincides with the occurrence of excess Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) production, placing cells under oxidative stress. A known cause and effect of oxidative stress is damage to and mutati

1 Why people management matters to the successful delivery of projects The importance of budget, time and quality to the success of projects means that they are often managed as technical systems rather than behavioural systems. Yet mismanagement of the ‘people’ aspects of projects is as likely to contribute to their failure as neglect of the ‘hard’ dimensions of project management. This is because the successful implementation of any kind of project requires the effective deployment of human as well as material resources. Indeed, without peopl

Authors@Google: Dean Karlan and Jacob Appel
Authors@Google present Dean Karlan and Jacob Appel: "More Than Good Intentions: How a New Economics Is Helping to Solve Global Poverty." In their new book, Dean Karlan and Jacob Appel discuss how to solve one of the most important questions in aid economics: how do you figure out where to spend your dollars in order to get the best results? Too often aid money is allocated by hope, by guesswork, or [in the worst cases] by corruption. How can donors tell if their money is doing as much good as
