7.6 Producing synchroton radiation in a laboratory
Active galaxies provide a prime example of high energy processes operating in the Universe. This unit gives an overview of active galaxies, including the supermassive black holes that power the engines at their centres, and the emission processes by which we detect and study them. It also gives practice in mathematical techniques for analysing data and theoretical models.
The ice mission
The poles are warming up faster than any other region on the planet. Arctic sea ice is both thinning and receding and Antarctic ice shelves are either disintegrating or are at risk of collapse. A recent study suggests human activity is to blame.
Law School Tour | University of St. Thomas
The University of St. Thomas School of Law has established itself not only as an outstanding law school but also as an exceptional place to be a law student. The School of Law was ranked the No. 1 law school in the country in 2005 for Best Quality of Life among students, according to Princeton Review's The Best 159 Law Schools. While a number of factors contribute to this quality of life at the School of Law, including our beautiful building and remarkable faculty, our students clearly are the b
(R&DA 12) Consistent, effective support, feedback and formal assessment of student teachers on block
This research identified critical issues in efforts to secure consistent, effective, support, feedback and formal assessment of student teachers on block placement. The report demonstrates systematic practices in case study research. Supported by TTA Research and Development Award
Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
What simple idea links together all of chemistry and physics? How can a close study of the macroscopic differences among solids, liquids, and gases support a microscopic model of tiny, discrete, and constantly moving particles? In this session, participants learn how the "particle model" can be turned into a powerful tool for generating predictions about the behavior of matter under a wide range of conditions.,The segment provides examples of probing questions about phenomenon to determine what
To develop as an independent, confident learner you will need to learn the study skills involved in reading articles, taking notes and summarising the information that you have obtained from an article. The unit explores the use of the Web as a resource for keeping up to date, looking in particular at how to assess material available online.

"The Experimental Man: Cutting-Edge Scientific Research and Implications for Personalized Medicine" David Ewing Duncan - chief correspondent for public radio's BioTech Nation, contributor to NPR's Morning Edition, author, and director of UC Berkeley's Center for Life Science Policy - gives a fascinating talk on his journey to "physical self-discovery" to see what effects medical technologies will have on individuals, families, and cultures.
When Larry Eigner arrived in this world "palsied from a hard birth" the accepted view was that the severity of his injury made him uneducable. An inspired bar-mitzvah gift of a 1940 Royal portable typewriter opened a pathway to his becoming a poet. This event celebrates the publication in four folio volumes of the Collected Poems of Larry Eigner. POETS/SPEAKERS. Robert Grenier, Lyn Hejinian, Richard Eigner, Rebecca Gaydos, Kit Robinson, Michael Davidson, George Hart, Albert Gelpi, Hillary Grav
Whether you're a professional musician, play music with your friends on the weekends or just like to listen to CDs, music technology affects your life. In this unit, you will learn some of the basics of music technology, starting with what sound is, how it is created and how it travels.
'Games and learning' is a Furturelab handbook that is readily and freely available as a PDF file. It reports upon the recent and current use of game-based resources. The key findings, that have the most impact upon teacher training, are the recommendations for educators to look beyond the game play to the rationale in terms of learning outcomes, opportunities and motivations. The report acknowledges and celebrates the effective use of computer-based games in a wide range of contexts through case
The overall purpose of this textbook is to survey the major events of modern Chinese and Japanese history. Sometimes this survey takes the form of an old-fashioned, straightforward narrative. Whenever possible, however, the author seeks to examine history through topics that rarely receive much attention in standard textbooks. Furthermore, many of the topics discussed in subsequent chapters shed light on matters of broad significance to the study of human affairs.
Customer-driven product customization and continued demand for cost and time savings have generated a renewed interest in agile manufacturing based on improvements on Rapid Prototyping (RP) technologies. The advantages of RP technologies are: 1. ability to shorten the product design and development time, 2.) suitability for automation and decrease in the level of human intervention, 3.) ability to build many geometrically complex shapes. A shift from â prototypingâ to â manufacturingâ
This paper describes the experiences of learning and working in groups on the Computer Science studies at Virtual Campus of the Open University of Catalunya. Two communities have used a web based shared workspace tool to a) coordinate the task of tutors of a computer architecture course, and b) a problem based collaborative learning project with software engineering students. These experiences have lead to the design of WWG: a distributed infrastructure for distance learning in groups at Interne
This is a 114 page report of a study, carried out from October 2007 to September 2008, of the Diploma development process for the first 14 Diplomas. Its nine chapters provide a systematic and thematic account of the Diploma programme’s process, organisation and vision together with conclusions and recommendations drawn from the findings within the study.
This unit will help you to identify and use information in maths and statistics, whether for your work, study or personal purposes. Experiment with some of the key resources in this subject area, and learn about the skills which will enable you to plan searches for information, so you can find what you are looking for more easily. Discover the meaning of information quality, and learn how to evaluate the information you come across. You will also be introduced to the many different ways of organ
This resource is a report which focuses on the learning and teaching needs of pupils with autism spectrum disorders up to the end of Key Stage 1, utilising a research study published in 2001 by the NFER to collaborate many of the author's views and suggestions . The research study itself, the report informs the reader, explores the range of provision Local Authorities were making available at that time, for pupils with autism spectrum disorders up to the end of Key Stage 1. This resource also c
