The habitable planet a systems approach to environmental science( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The multimedia course explores the natural functions of Earth's systems: geophysical, atmospheric, oceanic, and ecosystems; Earth's ability to sustain life, especially human life; and the effects that human actions have had on the different natural systems. Components include 13 half-hour video programs featuring two documentary case studies describing current environmental science research, and an extensive Web site providing content, activities, and resources to help educators deepen and extend their understanding of environmental science"--Container label
The evolution of gas and stars in the merger galaxy NGC 1316 (Fornax A) by Gerry L Mackie( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essential science for teachers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This course teaches some concepts on the nature of the universe itself. The course is based around four broad themes to help you to become a more confident teacher and this episode introduces us to the chemistry side of matter to help us explain physical and chemical changes at a microscopic level
Private universe project in mathematics presents Problems & possibilities( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video is a experimental test of an approach to teaching students mathematical concepts through a real life problem instead of starting with the formula and then working towards problem solving
Essential science for teachers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this course, you'll learn about the nature of the universe itself. The course is based around four broad themes to help you to become a more confident teacher. This episode is a continuation of an introduction to how the chemistry side of matter helps us explain physical and chemical changes at a microscopic level
Essential science for teachers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This episode is an introduction on the nature of the universe itself. The course is based around four broad themes to help you to become a more confident teacher. This session is an introduction of the ideas of properties of matter, classification and of modeling and science
Essential science for teachers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last session covered colliding continental plates, and how great mountain ranges like the Himalayas and the green mountains are born from these tectonic collisions. But left the question: If these two mountain ranges were created the same way, why do they look so different? This video gives some answers
Private universe project in mathematics presents Problems & possibilities( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of the six workshops, we'll follow step by step as these students connect ideas that have built in earlier years to new thinking of ever-increasing complexity. And we'll visit teachers who are changing classroom practice to help their own students make the same kind of connections. In this program, we'll set the stage for this long-term progression
Private universe project in mathematics presents Problems & possibilities( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the key goals of mathematics education is building problem solving skills. How does a mathematician approach problem solving? What does it mean to think like a mathematician? In this program, we'll look at a mathematician at work. We'll also visit students in a variety of problem solving situations to uncover parallels in the way that students and mathematicians solve problems
Private universe project in mathematics presents Problems & possibilities( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In real-life classrooms it takes a long time to help students build up this solid foundation of fundamental mathematical ideas. Yet, no matter at which point the students arrive, it is possible to begin the process. In many cases, it starts with just one lesson. Let's look at some of these first activities. Later in the program we'll see what the possibilities might be
Essential science for teachers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This session continues to look at changes that can affect matter, and specifically particles and why it is possible to compress some types of things like gases but not other types of things like water. This one brings in the additional questions like why things like static electricity can both bring together and push apart objects and other questions that come up
Essential science for teachers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This session explores a subject area that many people have trouble understanding, rising and sinking, and starts to explore the physics behind matter to help explain the phenomena of rising and sinking
Essential science for teachers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This session looks closely at something that affects matter, changes in temperature. Temperature changes can alter the volume and density of a fluid and cause it to move relative to the surrounding fluid at a different temperature. Heat and temperature are closely related to changes of state, and using our particle model of matter as our guide, even the microscopic behavior of a thunderstorm can be predicted in terms of the microscopic behavior of atoms and molecules
Essential science for teachers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last three sessions the theory of plate tectonics was covered, and it was learned that plates can slide past one another, move away from each other, or collide. In this session different types of collision will be covered and as well as discovering another major classification of rock
The SAO/NASA astrophysics data system( )

in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System is a digital library portal for researchers in astronomy and physics, operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) under a NASA grant. The ADS maintains three bibliographic databases containing more than 8.7 million records: Astronomy and Astrophysics; Physics; and arXiv e-prints. It covers journal articles, conference papers, technical reports, books and chapters
