What would our world be like without fractions? Our language would certainly change!
NASA KSNN What do animals need to live?
There are many different habitats on the Earth. These vary in the landforms, sources of water, and climate conditions. Plants and animals are specially adapted to live in their habitats. Animals suited to live in the desert (very dry, either hot or cold) would have a difficult time living in the tropical rain forest (warm and very wet). Grades K-2
Landmark larynx transplant
Brenda Jensen is now able to speak for the first time in 11 years, thanks to a groundbreaking larynx and trachea transplant carried out by a joint team of surgeons from UCL and UC Davis. Techniques of the procedure, particularly the repairing of muscles and nerves in the neck, had been developed by Professor Martin Birchall (UCL Ear Institute). http://www.ucl.ac.uk/ear/research/birchall Additional footage courtesy of UC Davis
Join the ladybug in an exploration of rotational motion. Rotate the merry-go-round to change its angle, or choose a constant angular velocity or angular acceleration. Explore how circular motion relates to the bug's x,y position, velocity, and acceleration using vectors or graphs.
Magnet and Compass
Ever wonder how a compass worked to point you to the Arctic? Explore the interactions between a compass and bar magnet, and then add the earth and find the surprising answer! Vary the magnet's strength, and see how things change both inside and outside. Use the field meter to measure how the magnetic field changes.
Geologic Time: The Story of a Changing Earth
This site examines the history of Earth. Learn about the formation of Earth, dating the age of rocks, geologic time, plate tectonics, climate change, ocean circulation, evolution, extinction, ecology, and topics related to paleobiology.
Lecture 24 - 11/17/2010
Greenhouse Effect, Climate Change, Global Warming
The terms greenhouse effect, climate change, and global warming are often used interchangeably, yet they really refer to three separate and distinct processes. This activity examines all three and assesses whether Earth's atmosphere is getting warmer.
Revisiting the Centennial: Resources from the Library and Archives
June 14, 2010 - December 2010: The invaluable resources in this exhibition--including books, pamphlets, scrapbooks, and ephemera--document an extraordinary civic event as well as the broader aesthetic and manufacturing forces at work in the Victorian era, which drove considerable social and economic change both here and abroad.
KiteModeler was developed in an effort to foster hands-on, inquiry-based learning in science and math. KiteModeler is a simulator that models the design, trimming, and flight of a kite. The program works in three modes: Design Mode, Trim Mode, or Flight Mode. In the Design Mode (shown below), you pick from five basic types of kite designs. You can then change design variables including the length and width of various sections of the kite. You can also select different materials for each componen

This site shows the typewritten draft of the December 8, 1941, speech in which Franklin Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan. The draft shows Roosevelt's hand-written edits, including his change of the phrase a date which will live in world history to a date which will live in infamy. Students can also listen to the beginning of the speech.
Climate Challenge is a single-player game about climate change, playable for free on the BBC website. It is a sandbox-style strategy game based on real climate change data, where the player can try out different approaches, learn about the issues and have fun at the same time.
Global power is shifting, and wealth and power are bubbling up in unexpected places. Fareed Zakaria considers not so much the decline of America, but the impact of the rise of "the rest". This transition of power will redefine America's role as the arbiter of the world's political, economic, and cultural issues and force it to accommodate new heavyweights. Zakaria offers an illuminating view of our increasingly complicated future, the growing influence of rapidly developing nations, and how thes
As talks between Mr Mugabe and both factions of the Movement for Democratic Change open in South Africa, the crisis in Zimbabwe continues. Western countries are pushing for more sanctions against Zimbabwe's rulers, while President Mbeki and the African Union oppose them. Meanwhile, the shrinking economy provides Mr Mugabe with less and less to pay the army, police and administrators. The June 27 presidential run-off was dubbed the endgame. It proved just another stage in Zimbabwe's unfolding cat
