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.
Introduction In this unit you will analyse the role of European institutions including the European Commission and the European Court of Justice in legal rule making in England and Wales. You will also be introduced to the study skills that you will need in reading legal cases, reading and understanding Acts of Parliament, using the internet to find legal materials, taking notes, creating study diagrams and summarising ideas. This unit is an adapted extract from the course Author(s):

Labor Union Movement
This amateur video uses slides of modern people as examples of why labor unions were formed. It is a fair quality video with good information.
5.6 Modernity – challenging tradition
In this unit you will be introduced to a variety of Delacroix’s work and see how his paintings relate to the cultural transition from Enlightenment to Romanticism. You will study Delacroix’s early career, his classical background, the development of Romantic ideas and their incorporation into his work. You will have the opportunity to study some of his most important paintings and compare them to works favouring a Neoclassical approach. You will also be able to see how his themes, subjects

Introduction Many managers find that they are required to manage projects. In this unit we aim to help you to take an overview of the features of a project and the issues that arise in managing a project. Once you have identified a piece of work as a project, you are able to use a number of management approaches that have proven effective in managing projects. A project is a one-off, non-repeated activity or set of tasks that achieves clearly stated objectives within a time limit. Most projects are goal-o

An Alternative Approach to General Chemistry: Addressing the Needs of At-Risk Students with Cooperat
This site presents a study on the impact of incorporating cooperative learning activities in a large section (>200 'at-risk' students) of General Chemistry. It includes data documenting students' performance in the course and in more advanced science courses, course materials, and videotapes illustrating cooperative problem solving in small groups. Jacobs' website provides graphic representations of his results, a site library with access to his methods and analyses and video clips showing stude
Major Element Chemistry
This PowerPoint presentation is part of the Whitman College petrology course. The presentation includes a diagram describing how modern spectrographic instruments sample emitted radiation and absorbed radiation. Further topics include the abundance of major, minor, and trace elements in the earth's crust, CIPW norm, bivariate diagrams (Harker diagrams), ternary AFM diagrams, the basalt tetrahedron, and alkaline and subalkaline (tholeiitic and calc-alkaline) magmas. This resource is part of the T
Using the General Social Survey to Investigate Social Relationships
In the first part of this exercise, students will learn (1) how to do preliminary data analysis using the General Social Survey (GSS); and (2) how to examine relationships between social constructs empirically. To carry out this study, whey will follow the basic procedures in social research and apply the concepts and techniques that have been discussed in class.
Occupational Sex Segregation
Occupational sex segregation will be studied by focusing on traditionally gender-oriented occupations and analyzing which have an increasing proportion of males or females, and which are still mainly gender-specific jobs. These analyses will be done by age group to study trends at different stages of people's careers.
Students will practice interpreting bivariate tables by examining the relationship between credit hours and study hours, gender and video games, and type of school and language offerings.
Sustainable Development for Engineers
By independent study of the book Sustainable Development for Engineers (K.F. Mulder, 2006) students acquire basic knowledge about sustainable development
Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 4: Thinking Like a Mathematician
What does a mathematician do? What does it mean to think like a mathematician? This program parallels what a mathematician does in real life with the creative thinking of students.,How a Mathematician Approaches Problems - Fern Hunt, a mathematician at the National Institute for Standards and Technology, is seen as she collaborates with colleagues to solve difficult technical problems. Using the metaphor of the childrens game Towers of Hanoi, she explains her approach to solving problems. 15 m
University of California's Museum of Paleontology: Geologic Timeline
University of California's Museum of Paleontology has created a hyperlinked Geologic Timeline with all sorts of details about each time unit that may be useful later in the course. Each hyperlink contains a variety of information including stratigraphy, ancient life, localities and tectonics associated with that specific time period. Users can also link to an Introduction to Geology page and a description of the Museum's geology wing.
Problems in the Design of Epidemiologic Studies (Grant Writing)
Presents the methodologic and logistic problems involved in designing and conducting epidemiologic studies. Students participate in the preparation of a research protocol for a study in a human population. Offers an opportunity to critically evaluate the adequacy and scientific merit of research protocols, develop an appreciation of the ethical aspects of conducting research involving human subjects, and apply methods and principles learned in earlier (340.601 - 603) and current courses to speci
Health Issues for Aging Populations
Introduces the study of aging, its implications for individuals, families, and society, and the background for health policy related to older persons. Presents an overview on aging from different perspectives: demography, biology, epidemiology of diseases, physical and mental disorders, functional capacity and disability, health services, federal and state health policies, social aspects of aging, and ethical issues in the care of older individuals.
