Studying to Succeed: Planning your study program day by day
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
Learn about forces that causes lighting.
The author's goals in writing Exploring Business were simple: (1) introduce students to business in an exciting way and (2) provide faculty with a fully developed teaching package that allows them to do the former. Toward those ends, the following features are included in this text: 1- Integrated (Optional) Nike Case Study: A Nike case study is available for instructors who wish to introduce students to business using an exciting and integrated case. Through an in-depth study of a real company,
Principles of Microeconomics
The authors teach economics as the study of “choice “ by providing students with an accessible, straightforward overview of economics. This text combines the clarity and writing of Tregarthen's seminal periodical "The Margin" with great teaching insights. Rittenberg and Tregarthen help students to understand how real individuals actually work with economics. In this new book, the authors illustrate the practicality and relevance of economics with a variety of new illustrations and insights.
Fundamentals of Income Tax Theory and Practice
This book is for an undergraduate income tax course where objectives include learning tax concepts and how to prepare income tax returns. Fundamentals of Income Tax Theory and Practice is developed to provide students with both the conceptual and practical information needed for a sound understanding of individual income tax at a reasonable cost. The text uses the latest information available from the Internal Revenue Service and combines it with background, conceptual information, and pedagogy
Physical geography is the study of the earth's dynamic systems -- its air, water, weather climate, landforms, rocks, soils, plants, ecosystems and biomes -- and how humans interact with the earth's systems. Physical geography is the study of the world around you. Everyone, every day, interacts with the earth's dynamic systems. I challenge you to join me on an exploration of the complex, and exciting world in which you live! This is a freshman level college course in physical geography. It requir
Corneal Ulceration in South East Asia
This dataset has been added as an experimental use of Open Context for public health data sharing applications. Corneal ulceration is a major cause of blindness in many parts of the world, but in South East Asia the WHO estimates that there are as many as 12 million blinding ulcers every year in a population of 1.6 billion. Now that we know the main causes of these ulcers it is possible to prevent the occurrence of most of them with simple, grass-roots, public health measures. The development of
Penn State's Deer Research Center studies herd health options
White tail deer studies at Penn State can be traced back to the 1920s. Throughout the years, a variety of research initiatives have focused on improvements in nutrition as well as studies in buck and doe growth, healthy reproduction cycles and humane repellents and fencing to protect forest regeneration. Current research at the facility includes a collaborative effort with the National Wildlife Research Center in Fort Collins, Colorado. This study focuses on the overpopulation of deer herds in m

Study of Place: Ocean Currents Exploration
Each two-week module in the Study of Place curriculum is framed by an historical event that makes a connection between the physical environment and human activity. The activities focus primarily on physical and earth science content, geography, and inquiry skills. Assessments and scoring rubrics, including a pre-assessment that can be used for both modules, are embedded in each module, providing opportunities for tracking student learning. The Ocean Currents Exploration module is framed by Benja

The monosaccharide browser allows you to view space filling Fischer projections of monosaccharides. You can edit the structure and discover the correct name or you can select names from the classified index to discover the structure. The structure can be edited by choosing between aldose/ketose, number of carbon atoms between 3 and 6 and by clicking on carbon atoms to alter chirality. The Monosaccharide Browser can be used as a study aid in various ways. •Make a random monosaccharide by clic
3 The purpose of writing
Writing reports and assignments can be a daunting prospect. This unit is designed to help you develop the skills you need to write effectively for academic purposes. You will learn how to interpret questions and how to plan, structure and write your assignment or report.
This is a series of computer animations which demonstrate all the possible combinations of the ideal gas law or equation of state. Gases have various properties which we can observe with our senses, including the gas pressure, temperature, mass, and the volume which contains the gas. Careful, scientific observation has determined that these variables are related to one another and the values of these properties determine the state of the gas. In a scientific manner, we can fix any two of the fou
Northeastern Student-Athletes Post Strong Fall Semester Academic Performance
Northeastern University student-athletes continued a tradition of strong academic achievement during the fall 2010 semester, as 178 student-athletes earned a 3.25 grade-point average (GPA) or better, with seven earning a perfect 4.00 GPA.
The Lessons of 1704
In The Lessons of 1704, students learn the basic skills needed to do research and to "read" primary and secondary sources, to see what they can reveal about the cultural characteristics and attitudes of the English, French, and Native Americans in the Deerfield area in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. At the same time, they learn about the attitudes and behaviors of these three groups toward one another. Then, they use what they have learned to analyze the 1704 attack on Deerfield and the
