Looking at Learning...Again, Part 1: Workshop 8. The International Picture
This workshop offers an opportunity to investigate various aspects of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), other than the test scores themselves. Distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology William Schmidt presents differences in curricula, textbooks, and teaching practices around the world, and a group of community members discuss how the TIMSS results reflect societal and cultural values.,This DVD does have supporting footage in terms of supporting comments for
Introductions to Equations with Uncommon Denominators
In this pre-algreba tutorial video, students will learn how to solve equations with uncommon denominators. This is a great resource to introduce and/or to re-teach this important skill in the classroom. (2:48)

Phenotypic plasticity is the ability of an individual organism to alter its physiology or morphology in response to changes in environmental conditions. This ability is particularly important for the non-motile vascular plants that are unable to move when environmental conditions become unfavourable. This exercise compares morphological and anatomical characteristics of two plant species after 6 weeks of growth under two differing levels of irradiation. Measurements of leaf area, weight, thickne
This workshop will cover major principles and regulations pertinent to working in laboratories with hazardous materials. It will be divided into 45 minute segments dealing with: Radioactive Materials (Staiger); Toxic, Reactive, Carcinogenic, and Teratogenic Chemicals (Carlson); Infectious Agents (Laver); and Fire Safety Concepts and Physical Hazards (Arnston).
Tube Your Future is a video contest aimed at 3rd, 4th and 5th year secondary education students who create and film their own ideas of what it is like to work in the world of science and technology by interviewing a professional in their respective discipline. The contest is organised by the science centre, NEMO and it was developed in 2008 as a pilot project within the context of the European research project GAPP whose purpose is to encourage more students, particularly girls, into an educatio
In this game, students are shown shapes and must identify line(s) of symmetry in each. Shapes shown include isosceles and scalene triangles, a square, a rectangle, and a trapezoid. ( This link is for an interactive game and may take a few minutes to load.)

The UA's baseball team has a rich history, having won national championship titles in 1976, 1980, 1986 and 2012. In addition to their commitment to the UA team, noted alumni of the team have gone on to play and coach in both the major and minor leagues.
Michelle Shearer, the high school chemistry teacher selected as the National Teacher of the Year, recently talked with Ole Miss education majors and gave them some advice on how to be great teachers.
In Sony Picture's upcoming film, "The Amazing Spider-Man," you'll find some real and interesting science behind Peter Parker and his webs. University of Minnesota professor Jim Kakalios served as the science consultant on the new film, giving the filmmakers a factual perspective on the physics of wall crawling and the tensile strength of spider's webbing. In addition, Kakalios contributed an equation called the Decay Rate Algorithm, which is at the center of a few major plot points throughout th

Harvard School of Public Health analysts probe the importance of the Supreme Court ruling upholding national health care, and explain the law's next challenge: the November election.
A survey of 47,000 square kilometers of forest and swampland in northern Congo has revealed a previously unknown population of endangered western lowland gorillas. The estimated tally of 125,000 gorillas in this region doubles previous counts of this subspecies of gorilla. The results of the survey, which was led by teams from the Wildlife Conservation Society and the government of the Republic of Congo, may propel the establishment of a new protected area in the region.
