Shape of Things
How can scientists study something they can't see? In this experiment, students use indirect observations to predict the shape of a hidden object. Scientists at Jefferson Lab study atoms in a similar fashion.

Attendance and students' school experiences
This report was commissioned by the National Educational Welfare Board (NEWB) in Ireland. It is an exploratory study which draws together literature and findings related to characteristics of school attendance by pupils in Irish primary and post-primary schools. It uses a number of data sources, particularly re-working data collected by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) and the NEWB. In particular, it highlights issues relating to poor attendance, discussing definitions of terms
Learn French - La Nourriture (Food)
In this video the instructor recites various words of French foods. Although many students of French will understand this video this video would be better served if the words and the translation appeared on the screen. A French teacher could stop the video at key points and ask what is being said. For beginning to intermediate learners.
Britain was the first country to industrialise, and it acquired the largest empire ever during this same period. But its sphere of economic influence extended far beyond the boundaries of the formal British Empire. This unit focuses on the economics of empire, using a case study of one town, Dundee in eastern Scotland, to explore this huge topic.

Hunting animals (predators) are adapted for finding and catching food in many ways. Animals that are hunted (prey) are also adapted to avoid being found
Teacher-produced slide show with detailed notes on chromosomes and the cell cycle. Discusses key chromosomes and specific abnormalities that may occur. No sound. Too much text on slides, but the pictures that are included are very good and illustrate the points made. Grades 9-12. Run time 04:05.
October 7, 2013 - Gentrification is one of the hot topics in contemporary Vancouver, but is it a new phenomenon? Author/artist Michael Kluckner presents an illustrated historical overview, ranging from the 'degentrification' decades before the 1960s to the urban-renewal era and the beginnings, in Strathcona and Kitsilano in the 1970s, of the modern trend toward fixing up deteriorated old buildings in the city's vintage neighborhoods. We will look at the eviction of the Coal Harbour houseboat c
Do you have a graphics or scientific calculator? If so, this unit will help you to understand the different functions and facilities available. With a focus on arithmetic, you will learn what a powerful tool this type of calculator can be.
Sample the best of Moroccan culture in Djema's al Fna, where fortune tellers, street preachers, and storytellers have shared their talents since the 11th century.
This three minute video shows how Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is fundamentally an autoimmune disease. Research now shows that Vitamin D may help prevent and treat this and other autoimmune diseases. This video might be of value if the evidence provided is proven accurate as claimed. Either way, a good video to show the value of knowing about vitamins.
This text is meant only to be a stimulus for the discussion to be held, in a specific panel, at Generative Art 2001. In the text, ?provocative enough? to spur animated discussion, some very basics of darwinism and genetics are given with the only purpose of declaring a common ?stage for the play? where everybody feels at ease. Common stage and common vocabulary ifnot even common language. The main thesis is very strong, therefore comments and critics are warmly encouraged. They are the selective

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.
Dr McLeod – the 2008 McDiarmid Young Scientist of the year – has a fascination with the slimy and disgusting that has seen her study hagfish in Fiordland and metre-long worms in Antarctica. She looks at the importance of rain forest and sea ice for the diets of these creatures. What if more forests are cut down, or if the sea ice disappears? Armed with these answers, it is becoming possible to predict the challenges ahead for these coastal creatures, and for coastal ecosystems in general. 20
This work is about realizing that human perception is inherent to architecture. It is an asset and a trait subject to training and development in an empirical way, involving physical and manual action. It cannot be taught literally through convention and logic reasoning. It is a human achievement of great significance built on intellectual and scientific knowledge. It is something, being physical and empirical, that is supported on instrumental procedure. The computer, as a machine and an instru
