Chick Embryos in Shell-less Culture
Continuous observation of developing embryos from day 3 up to day 18 of incubation allows students to see differentiation of extra embryonic membranes and circulation, limb bud, heart, and feathers as well as pre-hatching behavior. For advanced classes, this method is useful to study teratology, organogenesis, and quantitative growth changes.
This unit will help you to identify and use information in business and management, 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 or
MIT’s Entrepreneurial Development and Impact Over the Past 50 Years
Ed Roberts reviews the effects of entrepreneurship within MIT and the relation of MIT entrepreneurship to larger communities.
Much of the research under discussion comes from a 2006 study of MIT alumni conducted by Roberts and Charles Eesley of the Sloan School. The study polled MIT alumni about companies they had
A legal and historical study of post-WWII Singapore Trials: Death and suffering on the "hell-ships"
Dr Cheah Wui Ling gives her talk entitled 'A legal and historical study of post-WWII Singapore trials: Death and Suffering on the Hell Ships' as part of the 2009 Taking Stock of Transitional Justice conference
1 Unit introduction
This Unit looks at how units if inheritance are transmitted from one generation to the next. First you will look at what happens to the chromosones of animals and plants during the process of sexual reproduciton. Then you will examine how genes are transmitted in particular patterns from generation to generation. These two approaches combine to illustrate how the patterns of inheritance can be explained by the behaviour of chromosomes during sexual reproduction.
Seasonal Migrations: Monarch Butterflies
Help track the monarch butterfly migration each fall and spring as the butterflies travel to and from Mexico. Report your own observations of migrating butterflies to this migration map. Through these interrelated investigations, students discover that sunlight drives all living systems and they learn about the dynamic ecosystem that surrounds and connects them. Guidelines, lessons, activities, reading connections, and interactive maps are included for each study.

Studying to Succeed: Planning your career
Students progress through a program which requires them to manage their own learning and establish their own future goals through a process of self development. Career planning is a key component of the program. Effective study skills and attitudes will be developed and applied to areas of communication studies to prepare the student for entry into a tertiary undergraduate course. The language content is provided in a broad context to best enable students to continue in the career of their choic
Helprin on Copyright
Novelist Mark Helprin talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about copyright and the ideas in his book, Digital Barbarism. Helprin argues for an extension rather than a reduction in the length of time that authors have control over their work. He also argues that technology is often not attuned to human needs and physical constraints, claiming that tranquility is elusive in modern times. He sees the movement against copyright and intellectual property generally as part of an educational and socia
Mesoscopic physics is the area of Solid State physics that covers the transition regime between macroscopic objects and the microscopic, atomic world.The main goal of the course is to introduce the physical concepts underlying the phenomena in this field. Study Goals: Reach understanding of electronic properties of meso-size conductors, appreciate/recognize the role of classical and quantum processes, being able to explain electronic transport phenomena using simple physical concepts.Author(s):

"Measuring 'Nothing' and Getting It Right" - a symposium in honor of the physics career of Dr. Stuart Freedman (http://freedman2014.org): Dr. Robert McKeown (Deputy Director for Science at the Jefferson Lab and Governor's Distinguished CEBAF Professor at The College of William and Mary) speaks about his experiences collaborating with Dr. Freedman on the KamLAND experiment in Japan.
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
Buildings of ancient Rome
Rome: a majestic city with a rich past, spanning over two and a half thousand years. What remains to be seen of ancient Rome? As the heart of the Roman Empire, ancient Rome’s archaeological remains have been studied and admired for centuries, many being well-preserved due to their incorporation into newer structures. This album explores the sites of some of the republican temples in Rome’s Campus Martius, and relates them to the men who built them. The Roman Forum, centre of political and so
Moore's Law Forever?
In 1965, Gordon Moore observed that the number of transistors on a silicon chip doubled every technology generation (12 months at that time, currently 18-24 months). He predicted that this trend would continue for a while. Forty years later, Moore's Law continues to hold. Since the number of transistors in a circuit is a measure of the circuit's computational power, the doubling of transistor counts compounded over a 40 year period has led to an enormous increase in the performance of electronic
Pelvis (Part 1) Tutorial
Video uses hand drawn diagrams to identify and discuss the structure and physiology of the pelvis. Focus on the pelvic girdle and joints. Good review for a test. Music in background is a little distracting, and video is a little blurry. Grades 9-12. 4:25 min.
Every year millions of monarch butterflies manage to find their way from hatching grounds in North America to wintering grounds in Mexico. These butterflies log up to 2,000 miles to arrive at their destination: a few fir tree-covered ridge tops in Mexico that none have ever been to. How do these lovely lepidoptera know where to go? How do other species migrate? What are modern threats to migrating species?
Gingerbread Man Math
Gingerbread men and gingerbread houses enjoy special popularity around the holidays, but many of these gingerbread activities are timeless and complement literature titles that teachers use at the beginning of school or after the holidays. It's very easy to incorporate mathematics into a study of gingerbread men, and students will enjoy the data collection activities and games while learning math skills and deepening their understanding of important mathematical concepts. Look through these math
