Especially, for teachers in high school or technical school settings. You will gain an understanding of how to present the materials, sample materials to use in your classes, and information on where to obtain the drivers and how to help people load the drivers.

Additional resources can be found on the articles and proceedings page and the reports page. Explore the archive of our February 2012 symposium Developing a Digital Textbook Strategy for Your Campus. Our goal is to promote awareness of and cooperation among open textbook initiatives, as well to provide information about open textbook efforts in our home state of Florida. Temple U. Project Ditches Textbooks for Homemade Digital Alternatives - Wired Campus When students groan about buying traditional textbooks, their grievances follow a familiar refrain: They’re expensive and usually boring. So this fall, a team of Temple University professors heeded those complaints and abandoned the old-fashioned texts for low-cost alternatives that they built from scratch. The pilot project gave 11 faculty members $1,000 each to create a digital alternative to a traditional textbook. To enliven their students’ reading, the instructors pulled together primary-source documents and material culled from library archives. Steven J.
Notes from Nature People have been collecting specimens from the natural world for centuries - minerals, plants, fungi and animals. Today, there are an estimated two billion specimens housed in natural history museums around the world! These biological collections document where species and populations exist now and where they existed decades and centuries before, so they hold irreplaceable information necessary for uncovering the patterns of changes in species distributions and ecosystem composition over time. Scientists use such data and information in order to address key environmental issues we are facing right now, such as the impacts of climate change and how diseases affect wildlife and humans. For the information held in these collections to be used to its full potential there must be better digital access to these data. Most natural history collections are housed in museum cabinets, where they are not easily available to citizens and researchers.
Class Notes on Gravitation (Physics 152) Michael Fowler 6/7/12 Terrestrial Gravity: Galileo Analyzes a Cannonball Trajectory From the earliest times, gravity meant the tendency of most bodies to fall to earth. In contrast, things that leaped upwards, like flames of fire, were said to have “levity”. Aristotle was the first writer to attempt a quantitative description of falling motion: he wrote that an object fell at a constant speed, attained shortly after being released, and heavier things fell faster in proportion to their mass. Of course this is nonsense, but in his defense, falling motion is pretty fastit’s hard to see the speed variation when you drop something to the ground.

A millennial and a baby boomer trade places: ‘I can’t help but feel a stab of envy’ Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett “I’m glad your house isn’t tidy,” Michele says, not aware that I’ve spent the previous hour frantically cleaning up. She has come to collect me so we can walk her dogs – Violet, Michele’s longstanding companion, and her daughter’s dog, Ernest, who seems to have some kind of hyperactivity disorder. I try to look calm as Ernest chews my boyfriend’s New Balances, and for a moment feel privately thankful that I am not subject to the commitments that come with a pet. Intellisense for Science Teachers Hello there! How can we help you? The Intellisense for Science Teachers Programme (IST) is open to every science teacher in the world. IST consists of free science software from Intellisense as well as free curriculum to enable engaging lessons at your school. Our vision for this programme is to build and support a community of passionate science teachers through creating, sharing and translating exciting science education materials.

Learning to Teach by Learning Badly: Lessons in Bookbinding A role reversal is among the best means to learn. I am preparing to teach again after a bit of a break. I have made most of my career in the classroom, and I have enjoyed it. I recently was a student for a week. I completed a certificate in bookbinding at the San Francisco Center for the Book, and being not especially good at the craft was instructive.
Fibonacci via Recursion and Iteration Lesson Focus This lesson introduces how to calculate an arithmetic series, specifically Fibonacci. In the first of two hour-long sessions, using a spreadsheet (e.g. Microsoft Excel or Google Drive Sheets), students are shown how to calculate a series based on two prior values (the iterative solution), and by using a user-defined function (the recursive solution). With a large enough domain, most computers will exhibit real delays in calculating the recursion for values greater than 30. In the second session, they will explore why the iterative solution is faster, and why the recursive solution significantly slows down for large values.
