Workshop 2: Intellectual Development
Explore the power of the mind and consider the notion that every child can learn everything. Harvard Professor Eleanor Duckworth discusses the importance of teaching for a deep and lasting understanding and explains why it is important to give students time to work through their own ideas and experience confusion in order to achieve such understanding.

Elemental Methods for Integrated Architectures: Experimentation with Design Processes for Cable Net
Tension active systems are compelling architectural structures having an intimate connection between structural performance and the arrangement of material. The direct flow of structural forces through the material makes these systems attractive and unique from an aesthetic point of view, but they are a challenge to develop from a design and an engineering perspective. Traditional methods for solving such structural systems rely on both analog modeling techniques and the use of highly advanced e

6.6 Summary of Part E

In Part E you have had the opportunity to appreciate the relationship between the EU law and the domestic law of the EU member states. The principles guiding this relationship do not form part of the founding treaties of the EU but have been distilled by the ECJ from the aims of the Community as set out in those founding treaties. You have been introduced to:

  • the principle of supremacy: in cases of conflict EU law prevails over the domestic law

Digital-Material Feedback in Architectural Design
This paper studies the architectural potential of the implementation of material feedback using computer vision before and during an automated fabrication process. The combination of an industrial robot and a 3D camera is used expand the typical one-way design and fabrication process (from a digital design to a physical output), to a feedback loop, where specific material information becomes the main trigger of design decisions and fabrication processes. Several projects developed by the authors

Chemistry: A House With No Foundation
If abstract fundamental ideas are not taught because students are considered too young to comprehend them, how will older students have the foundation of facts they need to build on? This innovative workshop for teachers explores the reasons why teaching science is so difficult and offers practical advice to help you teach more effectively.

4 Structure of the assessment courses

This key skills assessment course does not have specific questions with word limits and no statements indicating you include, say, an essay or a report. Instead, as you tackle the course you need to ask yourself ‘Which pieces of work show my skills and capabilities to best advantage?’ When you have identified and selected evidence of your skills, you must then relate this evidence directly to the criteria.

8.5 Looking for Hinduism in Calcutta

Why create the EU?

All the member states of the EU have declared a belief in certain fundamental values and aims. Those fundamental values include the securing of lasting peace, unity, equality, freedom, security, solidarity, democracy and the rule of law (Article 6 [1] TEU). Remember that the creation and growth of the EU, like the European Convention on Human Rights, was achieved through the efforts of individuals and states that experienced the horrors and economic aftermath of the Second World War. Since it

3 Graph sketching

In Section 2 we describe how the graphs of polynomial and rational functions may be sketched by analysing their behaviour – for example, by using techniques of calculus. We assume that you are familiar with basic calculus and that its use is valid. In particular, we assume that the graphs of the functions under consideration consist of smooth curves.

Surfaces can be constructed in a similar way from plane figures other than polygons. For example, starting with a disc, we can fold the left-hand half over onto the right-hand half, and identify the edges labelled a, as shown in Figure 36; this is rather like zipping up a purse, or ‘crimping’ a Cornish pasti

Functional analysis
As taught in 2006-2007 and 2007-2008. Functional analysis begins with a marriage of linear algebra and metric topology. These work together in a highly effective way to elucidate problems arising from differential equations. Solutions are sought in an infinite dimensional space of functions. This module paves the way by establishing the principal theorems (all due in part to the great Polish mathematician Stefan Banach) and exploring their diverse consequences. Topics to be covered will inclu
