Introduction to Division, Part 1
This is part 1 of a series by Professor Lawrence Perez at Saddleback College. This 'live action' movie has an interesting perspective: the people are very small and the interactive white board is very large.

Professor Perez teaches a single student, Charlie.  While designed for college, the explanations are simple and clear.   It shows the different ways division is indicated, then uses the number line to show division, and long division. This video shows many different examples u

6.1 Knowledge and society

If I have seen farther than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulders of giants.

Sir Isaac Newton (Letter to Robert Hooke, 1676)

3.1 Overview

Scattering calculations using wave packets are so laborious that they are generally done numerically, using a computer. However, in many cases, scattering phenomena can be adequately treated using a procedure based on stationary states. This approach can give valuable insight into the scattering process without the need for computer simulations.

Session 3 introduces the stationary-state approach to scattering. The discussion is mainly confined to one dimension, so a stationary-state sol

Psychology of Early Design in Architecture
Lately there has been a good deal of emphasis on the early stages of the design process, particularly by developers of computer aids and quantitative design models for both evaluation and generation of designs in a variety of domains. Yet, there is little understanding of the early design-process. While the early design process as manifested by human designers need not be the sole basis of the description of this phase, it certainly represents and important kernel of knowledge, especially for th

5.2 What's in a phase?

In an engineering and scientific context, a phase is an arrangement of atoms that is identifiable through its recurrence – the same pattern is found time and again. For instance, the compound of hydrogen and oxygen that we call water turns up all over the place in the same form as a runny, colourless liquid; this is a specific phase of the compound H2O. In water, the atoms apparently organise themselves according to what they are and the ambient conditions of temperature a

Sometimes it seems that we focus on only reading and writing; Dr. Civil contends that we need to look more carefully at the mathematical potential of the home and that it is essential that schools learn to be more flexible and knowledgeab

2.4 Models as part of systems work

Thinking systemically involves identifying systems relevant to some situation, and models are invariably used as part of this process. An example of this forms part of Checklands' Soft Systems Methodology (SSM) (Checkland, 1981). One aspect of this methodology concerns the formulation of a root definition of some system that is relevant to the situation of interest and the construction of a conceptual model of this system. The root definition is a concise, verbal description of what a

Climate change in northwest China over the past millennium
Around half of the world’s population lives under the influence of the Asian monsoons. The sustainability of water resources, which is intimately tied up with future monsoon variability, is a critically-important issue in northwest China where development is taking place at the margins of agricultural productivity and towards the fringe of the landward penetration of summer monsoon rainfall. Understanding the likely future behaviour of the Asian monsoons is therefore critical for the people of
