MAS.531 Computational Camera and Photography (MIT)
A computational camera attempts to digitally capture the essence of visual information by exploiting the synergistic combination of task-specific optics, illumination, sensors and processing. In this course we will study this emerging multi-disciplinary field at the intersection of signal processing, applied optics, computer graphics and vision, electronics, art, and online sharing through social networks. If novel cameras can be designed to sample light in radically new ways, then rich and usef
'Dinnerfor1' is a 4 monitor video and sound installation which was first exhibited at the British Council Berlin in February 2005. DinnerFor1 is a woman talking to you. Her questions (isolated from the replies using fictional and factual texts) are often universal, so that a viewer is directly engaged: each set of questions is taken from a different source, connoting different strata of society and areas of (public) life. These range from the sensationalist interview into Princess Diana’s p
Learning spaces: evaluation
A presentation which provides an overview of key research questions relating to the development of fit for purpose learning spaces
The Department of Physics & Astronomy
The Department of Physics & Astronomy is a national leader in physics education, in part for developing its Workshop Physics program, an innovative activity-based method for learning introductory physics. In classes, from the most basic to the most advanced, students engage in activities and projects complemented by interactive lectures. All upper-level students do research in a state-of-the-art building with facilities for projects in optics, nonlinear dynamics of complex systems, plasma physic
Division with decimals is tricky because not only do you have to put the decimal in the right place in your answer, but often you have to move around decimals before you can even solve the division problem.
The Child Development Center's Outdoor Learning Lab
For the 150 children enrolled at the Kent State University Child Development Center, the opportunity to explore and learn more from and about the environment just got better. The center launched its new Outdoor Learning Laboratory on Sept. 19. Work on the lab began in March and was funded by the university and donations from parents.

Looking at Learning ... Again, Part 2: Workshop 2. Mathematics: A Community Focus
With Dr. Marta Civil. As teachers, we often make assumptions about the knowledge children are exposed to at home. Sometimes it seems that we focus on only reading and writing,Dr. Civil contends that we need to look more carefully at the mathematical potential of the home and that it is essential that schools learn to be more flexible and knowledgeable about students home environments. See and hear from Dr. Civil, the teachers she works with, and a long-standing parent mathematics group, and fo
Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 4: Thinking Like a Mathematician
What does a mathematician do? What does it mean to think like a mathematician? This program parallels what a mathematician does in real life with the creative thinking of students.,How a Mathematician Approaches Problems - Fern Hunt, a mathematician at the National Institute for Standards and Technology, is seen as she collaborates with colleagues to solve difficult technical problems. Using the metaphor of the childrens game Towers of Hanoi, she explains her approach to solving problems. 15 m
Is That Legal? A Case of Acid Rain
The goal of this activity is to understand how techniques of persuasion (including background, supporting evidence, storytelling and the call to action) are used to develop an argument for or against a topic. Students develop an environmental case study for presentation and understand how a case study is used as an analysis tool.
Introduction In this unit, we will examine the biology of the impressive meat eaters (e.g. wolves, lions and cheetahs), focusing in part on the biological ‘equipment’ – slashing and gripping teeth, for example – and on the less obvious behavioural characteristics that have contributed to the undoubted success of these fearsome hunters. Many of the meat eaters live and hunt in groups, which raises intriguing questions about the advantages of group living and the types of social behaviour between in

Solid State Physics
In the electrical engineering, solid-state materials and the properties play an essential role. A thorough understanding of the physics of metals, insulators and semiconductor materials is essential for designing new electronic devices and circuits. After short introduction of the IC fabrication process, the course starts with the crystallography. This will be followed by the basic principle of the quantum mechanics, the sold-state physics, band-structure and the relation with electrical propert

The Tuskegee Legacy: AIDS and the Black Community
No scientific experiment inflicted more damage on the collective psyche of black Americans than the Tuskegee study. After Jean Heller broke the story in 1972, news of the tragedy spread in the black community. Confronted with the experiment's moral bankruptcy, many blacks lost faith in the government and no longer believed health officials who spoke on matters of public concern. Consequently, when a terrifying new plague swept the land in the 1980s and 1990s, the Tuskegee study predisposed many
Choosing books that are "just right"
This teacher research study examines how students select books for independent reading and how teachers can help them make choices more appropriate to their reading levels.
