Now, James Gates explains how research on a class of geometric symbols known as adinkras could lead to fresh insights into the theory of supersymmetry — and perhaps even the very nature of reality. Complex ideas, complex shapes Adinkras — geometric objects that encode mathematical relationships between supersymmetric particles — are named after symbols that represent wise sayings in West African culture. This adinkra is called nea onnim no sua a, ohu," which translates as "he who does not know can become knowledgeable through learning."

Wikimedia Commons Find OER | Open Professionals Education Network CC licensed (BY) Flickr photo shared by David Amsler modified by Paul Stacey Reusing existing Open Educational Resources (OER) can save significant time and effort. The OPEN partners recommend TAACCCT grantees invest up-front time finding OER to reuse rather than starting development of new educational resources right away. A significant benefit of OER is that they provide source material to build your development efforts around. No need to invest development effort in creating something that already exists. OER come in a wide variety of types. The page below will help you find openly licensed media elements to use within your courses. OER also exist as distinctly education content such as full courses, workshops, textbooks, tests and assessments. The page below will help you find openly licensed education content you can use in whole or in part. It is unlikely that you will find OER that perfectly fit your needs. Open Educational Resources are distributed across the Internet. 1. 2. 3.
