Laboratory Investigations With C-FernTM Ceratopteris richardii
This series of laboratory exercises can be used to enhance existing labs focused on various aspects of plant biology, or to develop new laboratory-based courses at the undergraduate level.
Mitochondria and Metabolism in Honeybee Flight Muscle
Honeybees provide a convenient source of insect flight muscle, a tissue especially rich in mitochondria. These organelles are easily isolated using simple laboratory equipment and their metabolic activity readily measured colorimetrically with the dye 2,6-dichloroindophenol, which changes from blue to colorless when reduced by the electrons produced during respiration. This system is well-suited for studying cell fractionation, experimental isolation of the major subcellular components responsib
Moral and ethical principles in end of life care
In many areas of health care, and especially in such areas as palliative care, increasing attention has been paid in recent years to patient autonomy, and the need to respect it. Autonomy has come to be seen as a very important aspect of the interaction between patients and those looking after them, and forms the basis for many ethical commitments, such as telling the truth to patients, and seeking their consent for health care interventions. In this unit we look at quite a wide range of ethical
Build Your Own Insect Trap
Students design and construct a device to trap insects that are present in the area around their school. The objective of the exercise is to ask the right design questions and to conduct the right tests to determine if the trap works properly.
Design a Bicycle Helmet
The goal of the activities is for students to understand the basics of engineering associated with safety products. Using a bicycle helmet helps to protect the brain and neck during a crash. In order to do this effectively, helmets must have some sort of crushable material to absorb the shock of a collision and a strap system to ensure that the protection stays in place. The exact design of the helmet will depend on the needs and specifications of the user. In this activity students will be intr
Zebrafish blood vessels allow blood to circulate
Tail section of Danio where blood flows from the dorsal vessel (moves blood to the tail) to the ventral vessel (returns blood to the head).

A pacemaker generates electric pulses that regulate heartbeats. This patient education program explains how pacemakers work, and the benefits and risks of having one. It also discusses what to expect after getting a pacemaker. This is a MedlinePlus Interactive Health Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine, designed and developed by the Patient Education Institute.

EE 120 - Lecture 27 - Signals and Systems
Structure and Interpretation of Systems and Signals - Spring 2007. This course is an introduction to mathematical modeling techniques used in the design of electronic systems. An important keyword here is "mathematical." Subjects we will cover include continous and discrete signals, with applications to audio, images, video, communications, and control; State-based models, beginning with automata and evolving to LTI systems; Frequency domain models for signals and frequency response for systems,

1.2.1 A different definition
To set up a care relationship that works well is a delicate matter, whether you are at the giving or the receiving end. In this unit we explore the very varied meanings of care relationships and how these meanings arise. Millions of care relationships are going on as you read this, and each carries its own particular meanings for those involved. But where have all those people picked up their ideas of how to relate to each other? How does any of us know where to begin?
They're neither plants nor animals, yet they are some of the most important life forms on Earth. This video segment explores the world of microorganisms -- what they eat, how they move, what they have in common, and what distinguishes them from one another. Closed captioning included. Run time 03:43.
