Guide for Teaching About Coastal Wetlands
The intent of this material is to provide a basis from which a comprehensive study of coastal wetlands can be developed by the teacher on the basis of individual needs. Each teacher has students with varying needs and must, therefore, plan accordingly. The information and activities are provided as a framework and may be used and revised to accommodate different levels of students. Some activities may be used as demonstrations rather than student activities for younger students. Any grade level
Study Guide for a Beginning Course in Ground-Water Hydrology
The principal purpose of this study guide is to provide a broad selection of study materials that comprise a beginning course in ground-water hydrology. These study materials consist primarily of notes and exercises. The notes are designed to emphasize ideas and to clarify technical points that commonly cause difficulty and confusion to inexperienced hydrologists and may not receive adequate treatment in standard textbooks. Some of the exercises are more extensive than those usually found in tex
Entrepreneurship (undergraduate level)
As you read this, the managers of a new high-tech company, Optasite Inc., are striving to achieve the entrepreneurial dream. On a special website (www.amherst.umassonline.net) you will follow that company, and see their progress week by week. But you will do more than just watch. You will be actively engaged with the company, analyzing its problems, and making input. You will be participating in the world's first in-depth, real-time case study. Specific content will include the business plan, co
Small Business Division
The Clarkson University School of Business has a goal of providing its students with competencies in organizational leadership, teamwork, communication, critical thinking and problem solving skills, interpersonal skills and an awareness of ethical issues. This course offers students a chance to explore and apply those competencies by providing a real life, multi-disciplinary, team-based consulting experience. Each semester several consulting projects are presented to the students by outside orga

Mandarin stage 1 semester B
This module is aimed at beginners in Mandarin Chinese in semester B (after 11 weeks of study) and allows the student to practice listening and reading skills, as well as practice in grammar. The transcript reader of the listening exercises allows students to identify words/passages they find difficult to understand.
Virtual field trip
An interactive map containing computer generated 3D views of the Bowscale and Bannerdale area overlain with geology, and also alternative map data layers for the two study site is available via the 'Virtual Tour' icon on the computer desktops.

Shinzo Abe’s so-called “three arrows” of monetary stimulus, fiscal stimulus, and structural reform, have crippled the Japanese economy, writes Andy Sirkis. This audio Mises Daily is narrated by Keith Hocker.
This course focuses on the latest scientific developments and discoveries in the field of nanomechanics, the study of forces and motion on extremely tiny (10-9 m) areas of synthetic and biological materials and structures. At this level, mechanical properties are intimately related to chemistry, physics, and quantum mechanics. Most lectures will consist of a theoretical component that will then be compared to recent experimental data (case studies) in the literature. The course begins with a ser
In this multidisciplinary, inquiry-based project students prepare a plan and give a persuasive oral presentation to create a reconstructed prairie based on research. Teachers can use this unit with their students to justify enlarging or keeping an existing prairie. This project can serve as the organizing structure for prairie study where materials from units such as The Prairie – Our Heartland become research materials. It can be used in conjunction with the unit which is taught best in the f
This site tells how parents can make sure children succeed with homework and develop strong study skills. Among the topics: setting a regular time and place for homework, removing distractions, looking over completed assignments, discussing assignments to be sure they are clear, talking with teachers, and more. A brief checklist is included.
The study of Growth and Development can help us to know a person more thoroughly and thereby be better doctors than were we to meet our patients without such informational prompting. One can follow various developmental "tracks" longitudinally from birth to death, for example, following the development of motor, language or cognitive capacities and skills from the beginning of life to its end. Alternatively, one can study the individual at various cross-sectional stages/ages of life. Examples of
This course examines competing theories, models, and analytical frameworks for understanding policymaking. Case study application is used to underscore lessons learned. Knowledge of the basic tools of lawmaking is sharpened. The course is taught as a seminar and students are expected to participate actively in class discussion.
The Blender 3D Design course is intended to offer students an introduction to the world of computer generated 3-D modeling and animation. As an introductory course, it provides a basic understanding of the skills and techniques employed by 3-D designers in a wide range of applications. This course updates and replaces Three-Dimensional Modeling, Animation and Rendering Using Blender 3D Software (2006), previously on Tufts OCW. In this course we will explore basic mesh modeling, applying textures
Learn firsthand from a young Antarctic researcher about a long-term study on the reproductive history of Weddell seals in this video segment adapted from WomenInAntarctica.com.
Through ten lessons and numerous activities, students explore the natural universal rules engineers and physicists use to understand how things move and stay still. Together, these rules are called "mechanics." The study of mechanics is a way to improve our understanding of everyday movements, such as how gravity pulls things together, how objects balance, spin and twirl, and how things fly and fall. While studying Newton's three laws of motion, students gain hands-on experience with the concept
In this activity from the Discover Our Earth project, students explore the theory of plate tectonics and related phenomena using the interactive mapping and data analysis environment of The Quick Earth Study Tool, QUEST. On this Starting Point page, users can access information about the exercise's ...

This is the companion website to the Ken Burns PBS series that aired in January 2001. Explore cities and clubs where jazz developed; listen to excerpts of bebop, cool jazz and other styles; discover what makes jazz jazz and the theory behind the art form often called the purest expression of American democracy. The site provides biographies of nearly 100 musicians, transcripts of interviews that went into the making of the show, a virtual piano, a study guide and more than a dozen lessons.
