Why were you asked to try to understand some mathematics which was not clearly written? There will be times (hopefully not too many!) in the course of your mathematical studies when you will not immediately be able to follow a mathematical argument. In such circumstances it is very easy for your mind to boggle at the complexity of it all and to give up, feeling that you cannot understand any of it.

In Activity 8 you were asked to â€˜make a note of the point when it becomes very difficul

Col. Leo Thorsness on Ethical Leadership in Combat and Prison
When his wingman's plane was shot down over North Vietnam in 1967, Col. Leo Thorsness fought back. He relayed its position to search and rescue personnel, used his plane to distract the enemy while fellow airmen parachuted to the ground, destroyed two aircraft and turned back three others. Less than two weeks later he became a prisoner of war. He received the Medal of Honor for extraordinary heroism upon his return and went on to serve in the Washington State Senate. He currently serves on the B

2.4.1 Archaeological evidence

This feels in some ways like the most â€˜realâ€™ source â€“ where you can almost touch the Classical world, and where you get a sense of what the Classical world looked like. Classical archaeology covers a wide range of areas: not just buildings like the Parthenon or the temples at Paestum, but also cities, landscapes, graves, coins, battlefields, everyday items, plant and animal remains, ancient rubbish and much else. Archaeology often throws up evidence where literature doesn't. People, aft

6.3.2 Crystal

Almost all modern gamma cameras use (thallium-doped) sodium iodide (NaI) as the scintillation crystal. A gamma photon interacts with the crystal to produce many photons of visible light.

Sodium iodide is hygroscopic so cannot be left exposed to the air. The front surface is coated with a low atomic number metal that allows the gamma photons to pass through. The rear surface is covered with a transparent coating so that the visible photons can pass through to the photomultiplier tubes.

4.2.1 Defining the problem

It is vital that the problem is identified correctly. If the risk management system is working properly, the problem should not have hit you completely out of the blue, and you should already have some idea what it is about. But, although there is often a temptation to skip the definition phase and go straight to causes and solutions, it is important to be as clear as possible about the nature of the problem as seen from different perspectives, by answering questions such as those below.

We know that each hair cell occurs in a localised region of the cochlea, and that auditory nerve fibres contacting each hair cell fire action potentials in response to movement of the basilar membrane at that location. This means that the response of any given fibre should reflect the frequency selectivity of that location on the basilar membrane from which it comes. In other words, cochlear nerve fibres preserve the frequency selectivity found along the basilar membrane. Fibres on the outsid

Piz Palu - Famous Silent Film
Before Leni Riefenstahl was a director and film maker, she was an actress who starred in several movies.Â  One of her most talked-about acting performances was in the still-famous silent film, Piz Palu,* a mountain-climbing adventure directed by Georg Wilhelm Pabst and Arnold Fanck.Â  (8:22)

A segment of that film is featured in this clip, from "Cinema Europe: The Other Hollywood," a 1995 documentary by Kevin Brownlow and David Gill (regarding Europe's silent films).Â  Kennet
