Introduction a la méthode des éléments finis en mécanique des solides
Polycopié d'un cours numérisé de l'INSA de Lyon. Le but de ce polycopié est de donner les principes de base de la méthode des éléments finis en élasticité. C'est une méthode de calcul qui consiste à découper en "éléments" la structure à étudier. Ces éléments sont définis par des noeuds dont le rôle sera largement précisé et dont la réunion doit représenter aussi fidèlement que possible la pièce a calculer. Cette façon d'opérer est satisfaisante pour prendre en compte

A Lot Less Snow
In the winter of 1999-2000, relatively little snow cover blanketed North America, and it melted early. Users can read and view satellite imagery that discusses how NASA's Terra satellite and its Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) were able to record this phenomenon, and how spring snow cover data can be used to predict flood or drought conditions.

Don't Insist on English!
At TEDxDubai, longtime English teacher Patricia Ryan asks a provocative question: Is the world's focus on English preventing the spread of great ideas in other languages? (For instance: what if Einstein had to pass the TOEFL?) It's a passionate defense of translating and sharing ideas. (10:35)

Polygons
Polygons are closed plane figures formed by three or more line segments.  If a figure is open or curved, it cannot be considered a polygon.  Concave polygons have at least one diagonal that does not pass through the interior of the polygon; all of the diagonals in a convex polygon are contained within the figure.  Equiangular polygons have all angles congruent; equilateral polygons have all sides congruent.

What Students Want: Teaching from a Student's Perspective
Teachers often make assumption about what motivates, excites or frustrates their students. But how do students themselves view teaching? This video is from college students, but has applications for other levels as well. This 1:37 video is best used as an example of what teachers might do to improve by asking students who have left their classroom for a few years what helped them the most. I have done this and it is most valuable.
