Quadratic Equations: Solving Quadratic Equations
This module contains the a quadratic equations from Elementary Algebra by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr.
James Madison: Did You Know?
At just 5'4", James Madison was hardly a commanding presence, but that didn't stop him from shaping American history. There is no narration, just a series of facts. This is a good video to provide students with insights into his accomplishments and his times. )1:36)
Creating the conditions for radical public service innovation - David Albury
Public services are facing an unprecedented combination of challenges and opportunities: demographic, technological, public expectations, fiscal constraint, local and global "wicked issues". The need for radical innovation - innovation that achieves significantly better outcomes for significantly lower costs - has perhaps never been greater.This lecture will draw on international research, experience and case studies to discuss the policy, system and organisational dynamics and relationships nec
Listening exercise: Slide show about Tongeren (place in Belgium)
You understand a slide show presentation or spoken explanation concerning a cultural subject.
The very first building on CMU's campus, it connects to Baker Hall. Learn a fun fact about the two entranceways facing Frew Street.
OR Logic Gate
Worksheet on circuits that looks at the OR logic gate. Students are required to mark in the current flow showing the different combinations of high and low inputs and high or low output and construct a truth table for the OR logic gate. A set of circuits with current flow marked is given as a 'solution'.
Adjectives - Quiz
The pupils will know what an adjective is. They will consolidate their understanding of adjectives. They will know several adjectives.
Human Mastication Project Laboratory
The pattern of jaw movements during mastication is fairly simple and lends itself to both a kinematic and a non-invasive electromyographic (EMG) analysis. Students are provided with a customized Mac computer/LabView software virtual instrument system for the acquisition, storage, and parametric analysis of kinematic video data correlated on a frame-by-frame basis with multichannel EMG records. Each student is asked to design and implement a set of mastication experiments, thus gaining exposure t
Carrots are like radishes because the carrot and roots are under the soil while the green leaves gather sunlight above the soil. If you experiment with sections of the carrot or radish, you will see that cutting just the leaves and replanting them will cause the leaves to wilt and die in a few days. Sections of the carrot or radish will thrive in soil.
Cerebellar Degeneration - Cranial Nerves Exam - Trigeminal (CN V) Nerves Sub-exam - Patient 17
This 62-year-old white male has had neurological problems dating back to 1990. His initial symptoms consisted of blurred vision and incoordination. Viewing the video requires installation of the free QuickTime Plug-in. Disease diagnosis: degenerative. Clinical history: When he turns his head to read road signs, his vision is distorted. Gait disturbances have progressed to the point that he is now extremely unsteady. He reels from side-to-side and hangs onto walls for balance. There has been prog
Cercariae of Digenetic Trematodes: Use In Laboratory Investigations
In the complex life cycle of a digenetic trematode, the cercaria larva is shed from a snail intermediate host and represents a short-lived, aquatic transfer stage to the next host. Due to its temporary free-living existence, the cercarial stage is ideal for a number of investigative projects. Two general experiments will be conducted with the unusually large cercaria of Proterometra macrostoma. Students assess the effect of: (1) different light wavelengths on the vertical swimming burst distance

Oricalco - thermal shape memory fabric
The first orthogonal weaving example of Nitinol. The 'Thermal Shape Memory Alloy' is characterized by its extraordinary ability to recover any shape, pre-programmed, upon heating. Until today this light weight alloy with about 50% Titanium inside has been used in advanced sectors like space and recently in medical applications. Moreover this fabric is the first for which the shape memory alloy, named Nitinol, was weaved orthogonally that is to say that Oricalco is the first fabric with shape mem
Regulated Markets and Auctions - Microeconomic Analysis
Microeconomic Analysis - Spring 2006. Resource allocation and price determination. By the end of the semester, students should know the basic theory, models, and results of the topics covered. They should be able to use this knowledge to answer questions and analyze real-world situations. They should also be able to identify which theory or model is appropriate to analyze a particular question and explain why their answers are correct in intuitive, as well as mathematical, terms.
Aquatic Animal Skeleton - Tails
Several aquatic animals use their tails to propel themselves through water and to support and balance them when they spend time on land.
