Teaching Reaction Equilibrium Using Stella Modeling Software
Equilibrium of biochemical reactions is seldom taught in introductory biology labs. However, equilibrium is an excellent topic for the introduction of simple mathematical modeling into the lab curriculum. When properly done, modeling can allow an exploratory, hands-on approach to equilibrium, as well as teach a valuable application of mathematics. Stella modeling software facilitates the exercise by allowing students to construct sound models without dwelling on mathematical details. This exerci

Citizen participation is everywhere. Invoking it has become de rigueur when discussing cities and regions in the developing world. From the World Bank to the World Social Forum, the virtues of participation are extolled: From its capacity to "deepen democracy" to its ability to improve governance, there is no shortage to the benefits it can bring. While it is clear that participation cannot possibly "do" all that is claimed, it is also clear that citizen participation cannot be dismissed, and th

Habitat Mapping
The marine environment is unique and requires technologies that can use sound to gather information since there is little light underwater. The sea-floor is characterized using underwater sound and acoustical systems. Current technological innovations are allowing scientists to further understand and apply information about animal locations and habitat. Remote sensing and exploration with underwater vehicles allows scientists to map and understand the sea floor, and in some cases, the water colu

24.241 Logic I (MIT)
This course provides an introduction to the aims and techniques of formal logic. Logic is the science of correct argument, and our study of logic will aim to understand what makes a correct argument good, that is, what is it about the structure of a correct argument that guarantees that, if the premises are all true, the conclusion will be true as well? Our subject (though, to be sure, we can only scratch the surface) will be truth and proof, and the connection between them.
