Egypt's Golden Empire : The Warrior Pharaohs 7/8
A quote from the movie: "For over 3,000 years a story has lain hidden beneath the sands of Egypt. A story we are only now beginning to reclaim. It is a story of a time we call The New Kingdom. It left us the greatest treasures of the ancient world: an extraordinary legacy in papyrus, stone and gold. But behind these treasures lies an epic tale of real people: people like Ramesses, Tutankhamen the Boy King, and one of the most beautiful and powerful women of the ancient world, Queen Nefertiti." S

3.1 Visualisers and verbalisers

A major point about diagrams is that some people naturally relate well to them and use them frequently, while others tend to prefer textual material. The former are sometimes referred to as visualisers and the latter as verbalisers. There is nothing wrong with either of these tendencies, but in subjects like systems thinking, social science or technology, where text and diagrams support each other, it is important to be comfortable with both. In addition, it is helpful to rememb

Introduction

We begin this unit by looking at an estuary, a place where sea, land and sky meet. We have chosen a particular estuary: the Blackwater estuary on the Essex coast in eastern England. Although the Blackwater has its own unique characteristics, it is used here as a setting, a device for approaching the study of environments. Like any other estuary, the Blackwater brings together a diverse range of processes, elements and issues that constitute the environment. It offers us a way into thinking ab

Introduction

When a company moves to a new site it is known as ‘relocation’. This is a big decision, involving everyone connected with the company – staff, customers, suppliers and shareholders. It also affects the families, friends and communities of the people involved with the company. This unit uses case studies of different companies to show the steps involved in relocation.

3.4 Input and output considerations

CCDs are not inherently able to detect colour, only brightness. So it is necessary to rely on the fact that any colour of light can be made up from the three primary colours of light: red, blue and green. (Note that the three primary colours of light are different from the three primary colours of pigments.) Each CCD in the array is therefore overlaid with a red, blue or green filter and so detects the brightness of, respectively, the red light, the blue light or the green light falling on it

Professor Lewin Introduces Velocity and Acceleration
Lewin introduces velocity and acceleration to his students first by drawing graphs on his famous chalk boards and then by using an awesome demonstration. He actually fires a gun in his class and measures the velocity of the bullet! This video is probably too much to show high school students in class, but it's great for a teacher who needs to brush up on velocity and acceleration. (51:08)
