This unit is the second in the MSXR209 series of five units on mathematical modelling. In this unit you are asked to relate the stages of the mathematical modelling process to a previously formulated mathematical model. This example, that of skid mark produced by vehicle tyres, is typical of accounts of modelling that you may see in books, or produced in the workplace. The aim of this unit is to help you to draw out and to clarify mathematical modelling ideas by considering the example. It assum

2 What is brain-based learning and teaching?
This unit examines the area of the brain based learning with a particular focus on the development of the young child's brain and is of particular relevance to those who work with young children. We begin by looking at the structure and functions of the brain, and the impact that sensory deprivation can have on these. We consider the implications of current understandings of brain development for teaching and learning, particularly in an early years setting, and finish by exploring the value of

1.6.5 E. Worker as institutional reformer
In this unit, we look at the roles that are taken when working with young people. We focus on what those working with young people actually do, starting with some analysis of roles. We show that, in the context of work with young people, the term is more than simply a statement about who does what: it also says something about the kinds of relationships we form with young people and the values we bring to our work. We then move on to discuss roles in relation to the â€˜bigger pictureâ€™ of organ

Inheritance of Aldehyde Oxidase in Drosophila melanogaster
This exercise illustrates to introductory level students that Mendelian patterns of inheritance can be studied using biochemical assays as an indication of biochemical phenotypes. Students investigate the pattern of inheritance of aldehyde oxidase in different strains of Drosophila. Using this information, they study progeny from a mating between unknown parents, develop hypotheses about the parental genotypes, and investigate the results using chi-square test. In addition, students determine th
