The Floating Lithosphere - Isostacy
This activity lays the mathematical underpinning for studying isostasy in the earth. Students numerically and then analytically determine the relations governing the depth of compensation in a variety of situations including a block of ice floating in water. They recreate spreadsheets shown in a Powerpoint module with formulas that answer various pieces of the overall question. This module is the first in a set of three exploring isostasy, and was designed for an undergraduate class where studen

Scale of Cells and Complex Biological Systems
Advanced video lecture that looks the unity of life from a mathematical perspective. In organisms from the tiniest to the largest, lifespans and growth rates, for example, increase with exponents which are typically simple powers of 1/4. Geoffrey West, president of the Sante Fe Institute, shows how these scaling laws can explain essential features of many diverse biological systems. Incredibly complex systems scale in a predictable manner. He then extends these ideas to discuss urban systems: to
