Marauding Chimpanzees | Artificial Lung Transplants
On the 50th anniversary of Dr. Jane Goodall's first observations of chimpanzees in the wild, learn about new data that have led scientists to think about why chimpanzees fight and even kill. Then, hear about Massachusetts researchers who have been able to grow and transplant functioning lungs into rats.

The Uniform Boundedness Principle - Dr Joel Feinstein
This is a lecture from Dr Feinstein's 4th-year module G14FUN Functional Analysis. See also Dr Feinstein's blog at http://explainingmaths.wordpress.com/ and, in particular, the Functional Analysis screencasts blog page at http://wp.me/PosHB-8v In this screencast, Dr Feinstein discusses two famous results concerning collections of bounded linear operators, one of which is a corollary of the other. Both of these results have been called the Banach-Steinhaus Theorem (by various authors). The stron

UCalc: Continuity of a function - an example. Chris Tisdell UNSW Sydney
I discuss and solve a simple example involving the continuity of a function at a point. The ideas use the basic limit definition of continuity. Both algebraic and geometric properties are discussed. Such problems are seen in first-year university courses.

Using MATLAB for engineers
Introductory course on learning and using MATLAB aimed at 1st year engineering undergraduate. These were developed at the University of Sheffield and authored by J A Rossiter from The Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering. The files include a slightly animated power point slide (runs via web) which includes audio. Hence a little like a lecture. The source m-files mentioned are also supplied in the zip files mentioned. These m-files cover a group of topics. Read the instruction

GI tract
This topic has a thorough introduction to the whole gastro-intestinal tract. An animation illustrates the pathway taken by food as it travels through the digestive system. Peristalsis is illustrated using an animation. Students can test their knowledge of the components of the GI tract with a show/hide feature. The topic finishes with an overview of the gastric juices involved in the GI tract.

HST.583 Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Data Acquisition and Analysis (MIT)
This team taught, multidisciplinary course covers the fundamentals of magnetic resonance imaging relevant to the conduct and interpretation of human brain mapping studies. The challenges inherent in advancing our knowledge about brain function using fMRI are presented first to put the work in context. The course then provides in depth coverage of the physics of image formation, mechanisms of image contrast, and the physiological basis for image signals. Parenchymal and cerebrovascular neuroanato

3.40J Physical Metallurgy (MIT)
This course examines how the presence of 1-, 2- and 3D defects and second phases control the mechanical, electromagnetic and chemical behavior of metals and alloys. It considers point, line and interfacial defects in the context of structural transformations including annealing, spinodal decomposition, nucleation, growth, and particle coarsening. In addition, it concentrates on structure-function relationships, and in particular how grain size, interstitial and substitutional solid solutions, an

The First Decade of Informatics in Dutch High Schools
Informatics is currently being taught in high schools all over the world. In the Netherlands, where all students are expected to become computer literate in the lower grades of high school (Hulsen et al., 2005), it has been decided not to consider computer literacy as being part of Informatics. What, then, should be the content of the Informatics curriculum taught in the higher grades? What should be taught, how and to whom? How should students' achievements be assessed? The answers to these que

Improving database design teaching in secondary education: action research implementation for docume
Database design and use has educational interest for utilitarian and learning reasons. Database technology has significant economic impact and the demand for database design can not be covered by the existent educated experts. Furthermore the database management systems available at schools could be used for the design and implementation of high quality learning activities. Databases are general purpose modeling environments that enable problem solving using conceptual frameworks closer to the s
