The Berenstain Bears--Visit the Dentist-Part 2 of 2
In part 2 of The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist, Sister and Brother Bear both have problems with their teeth. Mama Bear makes an appointment with dentist and the cubs learn the dentist is not scary. This video is based on the book with the same title. This is a great resource to help make characters come to life in the classroom. (5:58)
How To Be an Effective Dissident
You’ve decided to protest an unjust political system or organization. The three minute video provides excellent ideas about making your story heard by others. A good video to show students who don't know how to make their voice heard. Parent approval may be needed.
Male Stag Beetles Fighting for Female
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of two male Stag Beetles fighting for a female. The stag beetle (Lucanus cervus) is arguably the most spectacular looking beetle in Britain; the male looks like something from a prehistoric age. The giant antler-like mandiblesare used in courtship displays, and wrestling with other males. Although rather fearsome in appearance, the mandibles cannot be closed with any force. You are more likely to be nipped sharply b
12.740 Paleoceanography (MIT)
This class examines tools, data, and ideas related to past climate changes as seen in marine, ice core, and continental records. The most recent climate changes (mainly the past 500,000 years, ranging up to about 2 million years ago) will be emphasized. Quantitative tools for the examination of paleoceanographic data will be introduced (statistics, factor analysis, time series analysis, simple climatology).

Actividad Física en el Envejecimiento (2011)
El proceso de envejecimiento está asociado a un declive paulatino que con el paso del tiempo acabará deteriorando en mayor o menor medida la estructura y funcionamiento orgánico, afectando a la capacidad funcional y a la capacidad de adaptación de la persona y por consiguiente, a la salud y la calidad de vida. Es por esto que las consideraciones más importantes que deben tener los profesionales de la Actividad Física y el Deporte cuando trabajan con personas mayores deben estar dirigidas a
[Special Edition] It's Kinect day! The Kinect For Windows SDK v1 is out! As everyone reading this blog, and those in the Kinect for Windows space, knows today is a big day. From what was a cool peripheral for the XBox 360 last year, the Kinect for Windows SDK and now dedicated Kinect for Windows hardware device, has taken the world by storm. In the last year we've seen some simply amazing ideas and projects, many highlighted here in the Kinect for Windows Gallery, from health to education, to music expression to simply just fun.

Inflation Targeting Hits the Wall The financial-market crisis is not over but has grown into a vicious sovereign-debt crisis. Nevertheless, monetary policy makers of the major economies go on to practice the same sort of policy that has led to the crisis. Following the model of inflation targeting, they continue to disregard the quantity of money and the amount and kind of credit creation. As they did before, central banker

Karl's Calculus Tutor
Few calculus resources, either online or offline, can match the sheer depth and user-friendliness of Karl's Calculus Tutor. The site contains educational material that is covered in a standard introductory calculus course. Entire chapters about limits, integrals, and derivatives are presented. Nearly every topic is accompanied by a detailed example, and a recently added midterm practice exam allows students to test their knowledge. The author is continually adding new material, stating that user
Nonindigenous Aquatic Species
This US Geological Survey database provides information on nonindigenous aquatic species for resource professionals and the general public. Distribution maps and species information for a variety of aquatic vertebrate, invertebrate, and plant species includes photos, description of the life cycle, native and non-native habitat range, and potential impacts the non-native species has on its habitat. The site is easy to navigate; users can find information by species name, state, or drainage basin.
The Boxes Go Mobile
To display the results from the previous activity, each student designs and constructs a mobile that contains a duplicate of his or her original box, the new cube-shaped box of the same volume, the scraps that are left over from the original box, and pertinent calculations of the volumes and surface areas involved.
Navigating by the Numbers
Students learn that math is important in navigation and engineering. Ancient land and sea navigators started with the most basic of navigation equations (speed x time = distance). Today, navigational satellites use equations that take into account the relative effects of space and time. However, even these high-tech wonders designed by engineers cannot be created without pure and simple math concepts — basic geometry and trigonometry — that have been used for thousands of years. In this less
Pointing at Maximum Power for PV
Student teams measure voltage and current in order to determine the power output of a photovoltaic (PV) panel. They vary the resistance in a simple circuit connected to the panel to demonstrate the effects on voltage, current, and power output. After collecting data, they calculate power for each resistance setting, creating a graph of current vs. voltage, and indentifying the maximum power point.
Oceans, climate and weather
What is the difference between weather and climate? What do the oceans have to do with them? Weather is the day-to-day state of the atmosphere and its short-term (minutes to weeks) variation. Climate is typically described by the regional patterns of seasonal temperature and precipitation over 30 years. The averages of annual temperature, rainfall, cloud cover, and depth of frost penetration are all typical climate-related statistics. The oceans influence the worlds climate by storing solar ener
