Divisibility Rules - Divisible by 3 or 9
Instructor uses white board. Suitable for older elementary, middle school, and high school students.Students learn that a number is divisible by another if the first number can be divided by the second number without a remainder. For example, 14 is divisible by 7 because 14 can be divided by 7 without a remainder. Students also learn to use the following divisibility rules. A number is divisible by 2 if the number is even. A number is divisible by 3 if the sum of the digits is divisible by 3. A

This course will explore the role of the courts and the judiciary in England and Wales. The English legal system is often referred to as a â€˜common lawâ€™ legal system. Before medieval times the law in what we now call Great Britain was largely regional. Different regional kingdoms had different law. Over time, the same law was applied by judges across the single kingdom established after 1066 and so became common to all parts of the country. This was known as â€˜the common lawâ€™. (The comm

In the very first reading (Activity 1) we encountered the term â€˜non-thermalâ€™ describing the spectrum of light emitted from AGN. In this subsection we will learn more about the most important type of non-thermal radiation: synchrotron emission.

When a charged particle moves in the presence of a magnetic field it experiences a Lorentz force, which produces an acceleration whose direction is perpendicular to both the magnetic field line and the velocity of the particle,

We have all experienced component failures in one form or another. In many cases this is because something has reached the end of its working life due to a slow-acting failure mechanism: car tyres wear slowly and will eventually burst if not replaced; the filament in a light bulb slowly loses material until it cannot sustain the applied voltage and melts. Failures where something has been so badly designed that it cannot withstand its intended loading during normal use are rarer, but they do

As the sociologist and philosopher, Alfred Schutz (1954) argued, it is important to pay careful attention to the relationship between sociological and everyday concepts, since everyday concepts express the meanings by which social interactions are framed. So how do people themselves understand, encounter, interpret and evoke the very slippery c

At the same time, such judgements and responses are not just personal matters: they are also embedded in all sorts of wider and interpersonal processes of power and inequality. These processes shape social policies, professional interventions, and representations in the media, as well as underpinning everyday social interactions in family lives and relationships. If we focus on family meanings, we may not always put issues of power, material inequalities, and moral evaluations at the centre o
