This unit explores the Holocaust, as the destruction of European Jewry is commonly known. The mass killing represented by the Holocaust raises many questions concerning the development of European civilisation during the twentieth century. This unit, therefore, covers essential ground if you wish to understand this development.

The transformation of radioactive uranium and, in some instances, thorium isotopes provides vastly more energy per unit mass of fuel than any other energy source, except nuclear fusion, and therein lies its greatest attraction. The unit considers the advantages and limitations of generating this power and the environmental and security issues that the process raises.

Ring around the Rosie
Students learn the concept of angular momentum and its correlation to mass, velocity and radius. They experiment with rotation and an object's mass distribution. In an associated literacy activity, students use basic methods of comparative mythology to consider why spinning and weaving are common motifs in creation myths and folktales.

Rocking the Boat
The concepts of stability and equilibrium are introduced while students learn how these ideas are related to the concept of center of mass. They gain further understanding when they see, first-hand, how equilibrium is closely related to an object's center of mass. In an associated literacy activity, students learn about motion capture technology, the importance of center of gravity in animation and how use the concept of center of gravity in writing an action scene.

Tightrope Trials
To learn about the concept of center of mass, students examine how objects balance. They make symmetrical cut-outs of different "creatures" and experiment with how they balance on a tightrope of string. Students see the concept of center of mass at work as the creatures balance.

Identify the types and means of generating a pattern for manufacturing
A template is a pattern or stencil that is used in cutting the metal piece or pieces required to manufacture an object. Templates are often used for mass production in the engineering industry. They are developed by hand or computer and save time because they can be used again and again. Templates can be made of paper, sheet metal, cardboard or transferred directly onto material from a computer program known as CAM which stands for 'computer aided manufacturing'.

Geography, Inequality and Oxford
Danny Dorling delivers his inaugural lecture as Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography on 'Geography, Inequality and Oxford'. Danny Dorling's talk outlines how geography is increasingly important for revealing inequalities - over the last third of a century, inequalities in health and wealth have been rising and rising fastest in the last 5 years. The last period in recent history when we enjoyed relative equality was back in the 1970s - the time when Danny himself was living and schooled in O

Inaugural Lecture Prof Nick Frost - Assessing Modern British Childhood: research, policy and practic
This lecture explored the contemporary policy agenda for children and young people living in England. The major focus of the lecture was on the relationship between the state and modern childhood. The lecture then moved on to examine the state of contemporary British childhood. A series of recent research and policy reports have suggested that British children inhabit a world that compares negatively to children in otherwise comparable societies. Childhood and youth are also a high profile and f

The US Industrial Growth (Pre-Civil War)
This video is accompanied by text. "In the eighteenth century, British inventors perfected a series of machines for mass production of textiles, which initiated the European Industrial Revolution and gave Britain a head start in industrial production. For many years, the British carefully guarded their industrial secrets, forbidding the export of machines or even descriptions of them and restricting the departure of informed mechanics. The British could not keep its secrets forever, and in 1789,
