Activation Energy and Enzymes TITLE: Activation Energy and EnzymesSOURCE: Freeman, S, Biological Science, Second Edition, Pearson Prentice Hall, Inc.© 2006 Pearson Prentice Hall, Inc.KEYWORDS: Activation energy, enzymes, exergonic reactions, ATP, activation energy, catalysts, lock-and-key model, induced-fit model Biology Animations Carnegie Mellon's Office of Technology for Education and Department of Biological Sciences create multimedia materials for teaching and learning Biology. After an analysis of a number of Biology courses was performed to identify when and how shared concepts where taught, a team of biologists, media programmers, and learning experts came together to create animations designed to improve understanding of some of the main concepts taught in Modern Biology and Biochemistry.

Evolution: Education and Outreach - Free Access Available As of January 2013 Evolution: Education & Outreach is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. From 2013 onward all new articles published in the journal are freely and permanently available online for anyone, anywhere and at any time. This journal promotes accurate understanding and comprehensive teaching of evolutionary theory for a wide audience. Evolution: Education and Outreach addresses the question of why we should care about evolution by exploring the practical applications of evolutionary principles in daily life and the impact of evolutionary theory on culture and society throughout history. Targeting K-16 students, teachers and scientists alike, the journal presents articles to aid members of these communities in the teaching of evolutionary theory. It connects teachers with scientists by adapting cutting-edge, peer reviewed articles for classroom use on varied instructional levels.
Cracking the Code of Life by Rick Groleau Chances are you've seen an illustration of DNA's double-helix structure and even pictures of the chromosomes that comprise the human genome. But where and how does the famous double helix fit into chromosomes, and how do chromosomes relate to the human body? This exploration allows you to travel to the tiny world of DNA. Nuclear reactor and power plant simulation Introduction This is not a lesson like the others in Radioactivity and Atomic Physics Explained but it fits in well with the lesson on nuclear power. It is a very sophisticated simulation of a pressurised water reactor (PWR), which is the most common type of nuclear power reactor in the US but not in Europe, though the principles are very similar. Using the tour There is a comprehensive tour which goes through the workings of the reactor, starting from a consumer of electrical energy and working backwards to the reactor core itself.
