Datasets from Drug Research
This collection of datasets comes from several phases of drug research. Each dataset comes with a full description and questions to answer from the data.
Exploratory Pharmacokinetic Study
This dataset comes from a study of 7 healthy males given a topical medication. Blood samples were collected at specified time intervals, and data on isomer concentrations were collected. Questions from this study refer to the relationship between time and concentration of the isomer. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Oral Toxicity Study in Dogs
This dataset comes from a study on dogs 4 doses of a drug. Data on the alkaline phosphatase levels in their blood was collected throughout the experiment. Questions from this study refer to the relationship between dosage of the drug and alkaline blood levels. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
This dataset comes from a study on two treatment sequences (AB, BA) given to 14 healthy male volunteers randomly assigned to a two-period crossover design. Three pharmacokinetic variables were collected on the subjects at the end of each treatment period. Questions this study focused on refer to whether the treatments (A,B)are equivalent. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Dose Response/Selection Study in GERD Patients
This dataset comes from a study on drug treatments of reflux disease patients. Twelve patients were assigned to a four period crossover design, and data on their disease symptoms were collected after treatment. Questions this study focused on refer to dosage of the drug. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Swim Maze Testing in Rat Pups
This dataset comes from a study on rats swimming in a T-shaped maze. Rats were given 4 doses of a drug, and their resulting pups swam the maze until they successfully escaped it 3 consecutive times. Questions from this study refer to the dosage of the drug, the number of swims until 3 consecutive successful escapes, and gender differences. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Stop Pointless Personal Pollution
This is a set of exercises based on some of the topics addressed in the accompanying article. They emphasize personal participation and creation of a program. In Exercise I, students are encouraged to take charge of their environment through an Adopt-A-Street program. Exercise 2 is a problem that uses math interpretation to lead students to think about a more water-conservative strategy for car washing. In particular, students are asked to work with fractions. The third exercise uses a case stud
Toxic Release Inventory Explorer
The Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) Explorer provides access to the Toxics Release Inventory data to help communities identify facilities, chemical disposal, or other release patterns that warrant further study and analysis. Users can create maps or reports with the TRI Explorer tool. Users can create maps or reports with the TRI Explorer tool.
Winslow Homer in the National Gallery of Art
This in-depth study traces Homer's extraordinary career from the battlefields, farmland, and coastal villages of America, to the North Sea fishing village of Cullercoats, the rocky coast of Maine, the Adirondacks, and the Caribbean. Includes zoom option for close study, video clips, and an interactive slide show.

Professor Patrick Duffy Inaugural Lecture: (Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world?
(Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world? Professor Duffy's research work focuses on policy and sport coaching, as well as applied work in sport-business transfer, which is part of a long-term project with Morrisons PLC. Patrick will address the policy and research backgrounds to developments in professional practice in this area. The traditional view of sport coaching as an emerging profession will be challenged, suggesting that sport coaching should position itself as a blended

Contracting and Signaling, Winter 2008
Course prepares you to advise clients or your own organization on the design of contracts and screening policies when one of the parties has an information advantage over the other. For example, students study the design of patent licenses (the licensor knows more about the market), the design of social systems to reduce spam (the spam sender knows more about the content before the recipient decides whether to read), and the design of performance contracts for professional services (e.g., consul
Effect of transverse load on fiber bragg grating measurements (The)
The field of communications has been revolutionized by the advent of optical fiber. Optical fiber now connects most of the world carrying a vast amount of information through a very limited physical medium. To the materials engineer, optical fiber technology has stimulated interest in a new type of micro-sensor application, where the size, weight, and the ability to integrate the sensor into a material structure play a major role. Areas of interest currently include materials characterization, c
24.242 Logic II (MIT)
This course begins with an introduction to the theory of computability, then proceeds to a detailed study of its most illustrious result: Kurt Gödel's theorem that, for any system of true arithmetical statements we might propose as an axiomatic basis for proving truths of arithmetic, there will be some arithmetical statements that we can recognize as true even though they don't follow from the system of axioms. In my opinion, which is widely shared, this is the most important single result in t
HEALth Case Studies
This program was designed for dental hygiene and dentistry students to help them learn about evidence-based dentistry and its role in providing quality dental care. This program uses patient-based case studies combined with interactive tools and activities to help students become effective consumers of oral health research data. They learn to locate, evaluate, and use the outcomes of research studies to improve patient assessment, diagnosis, clinical decision making, and treatment planning, as w

Entomology in Action
Lesson 1 introduces students to the blow fly's life cycle and the accumulated degree hour (ADH) used by forensic entomologists for estimating the time of death. Lesson 2 introduces Dr. Krinsky's entomological work in solving a murder case in 1986. Students access several primary-source documents related to Dr. Krinsky's entomological work. Both lessons help students expand their understanding of a forensic entomologist's work and appreciate how scientists account for environmental/variable facto
Internet Scout Project
Developed by online museum educators, Pieces of Science is described as "an online gallery of sixteen educational resources related to a collection of historical science objects." The sixteen subjects are organized by grade level and include such topics as lighting rods, Apollo 8, a lunar module, Priestleyï¿½s physics project, and penicillin. Each page contains a variety of resources, but the lighting rod page, for example, explains the history of how Benjamin Franklin used lighting rods to s
