The original TV programme was divided into an introduction and seven sections, each preceded by a simple question that appears on screen. To help you to explore this material, we have split the programme into eight clips, each associated with an activity. Once you have completed all the activities, you will have viewed the TV programme in its entirety and considered some of the questions explored in the original OU course.

Activity 2 deals with the whole history of the buildings from m

Embedding Computer Activities into the Context of Preschools
Computer activities are all too often employed in preschool (and kindergarten) activity rooms with little regard for what is going on beyond the computer. Consequently, in those circumstances computer time is lacking appropriate context that could help link computer activities with the educational themes surrounding non-computer activities. Providing technical computer training to preschool and kindergarten teachers is often not sufficient to originate activities that embed that context beyond s

We are used to seeing spectacular astronomical images in the press and on the internet. This course gives an in-depth introduction to two of the most important instruments used to create these images and explore the science behind them â€“ telescopes and spectographs.

This course is drawn from the preparatory work for the practical residential school at the Observatori Astronomic de Mallorca. The course image shows a student at work in one of the telescope domes at the Observatori.

The OU PGCE, which is no longer taught by the University, was been developed by The Open University and its partner schools to provide an innovative, student-teacher centred approach to initial teacher education. We aimed to build on the skills, knowledge and experience that student teachers bring to the profession, and then to prepare them for a career in teaching. The course led to the award of PGCE, and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) conferred by the appropriate statutory body. Work

Environmental radiation comes from a range of naturally occurring and anthropogenic sources, with the former estimated to contribute more than 98% of the radiation dose experienced by people (excluding medical exposure). Any exposure to radiation can lead to cancer, and the greater the exposure, the greater the risk.

The contribution that drinking water makes to radiation intake is very small, and is due largely to naturally occurring radionuclides (isotopes of an element which are unst

Although in unicellular organisms such as the yeast S. cerevisiae there are only two classes of 7TM receptors, the pheromone and glucose receptors, multicellular organisms have many more, accounting for up to 5% of all genes in C. elegans and 2% of genes in the human and Drosophila genomes. 7TM proteins have been classified into four classes, A, B, C (Table 1). Between them, they can bind a huge range of ligands including simple ions, nucleotides, lipids, steroids, modifi
