Active Galaxies Pop-up book
Unrestricted Use
Public Domain
Rating

The Active Galaxies pop-up book is a very large rectangular pop-up book with foldouts that was developed for use in classrooms for grades 5 and up and for special needs audiences. Active galaxies, a major scientific target for the GLAST mission, contain super-massive black holes at their cores, and sometimes emit jets of particles and light. When opened, a model of an active galaxy with jets pops up out of the center. One foldout contains explanatory information for the parts of the galaxy depicted in the central pop-up as well as a glossary, while the other contains a well-tested classroom activity: Tasty Active Galaxy. The back of the book features a cartoon story -How the Galaxy Got Its Jets.

American Chemical Society - Chemistry Education Resources
Read the Fine Print
Rating

The chemistry education resources that the American Chemical Society has placed on its website are quite impressive, and are a must see for teachers, motivated students, and even parents. Visitors will find "Classroom Resources" that range from "Elementary/Middle School" to "Two-Year Colleges" to "Graduate Education," near the top of the homepage. Also included on the Education Resources page are the categories of "Exams, Assessments, Study Aids," "Professional and Program Development," and "Student Programs." The latter category offers some "Games" with fun names in the Elementary and Middle School section. There is "Avogadro's Element Hunt," where students help Avogadro, a mole with glasses and green shoes, to find chemical elements in three rooms of his house. "Meg A. Mole's Bouncy Ball Factory" has a blue-shoed mole making a ball out of starch, borax and glue, but she waits for the student to decide how much of each goes into the mixer.

American Mathematical Society Books Online
Read the Fine Print
Rating

The American Mathematical Society (AMS) was founded in 1888 in order to further mathematical research and scholarship. Since that time, they have embarked on a number of outreach programs designed to educate the public about the importance of various mathematical endeavors. In the past several years, they have been developing the AMS Books Online website, and it's quite a resource. The works were all originally published by the AMS, and they can be browsed by author or subject. The subject headings include analysis, general interest, logic and foundations, and number theory. Users can download individual chapters from each book, and there are currently over thirty books available on the site. Visitors should make sure and check back, as there are plans to add books to the site periodically.

Rating

Dr. Joseph Hornak of the Rochester Institute of Technology presents this high quality hypertextbook for in-depth coverage of the physics and technique behind Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) (For Dr. Hornak's Basics of MRI, see the August 4, 1999 Scout Report for Science & Engineering). The material is presented in a detailed and clear manner without over simplifying the concepts. Chapters include "The Mathematics of NMR," "Spin Physics," "NMR Spectroscopy," "Fourier Transforms," "Pulse Sequences," and much more. A chapter on "NMR Hardware" offers an overview of components (like the superconducting magnet and various coils) used in most NMR systems. The "Practical Considerations" chapter emphasizes spectroscopic techniques. With the screen split into two separate frames, explanatory graphics can be viewed alongside the text. A glossary and a list of symbols are also included in this carefully produced textbook.

Biological Control: A Guide to Natural Enemies in North America
Read the Fine Print
Rating

This guide provides photographs and descriptions of biological control (or biocontrol) agents of insect, disease and weed pests in North America. It is also a tutorial on the concept and practice of biological control and integrated pest management (IPM). The guide currently includes individual pages of approximately 100 natural enemies of pest species, and continued expansion is planned. On each of these pages you will see photographs, descriptions of the life cycles and habits, and other useful information about each natural enemy. Four different types of natural enemies are covered in this guide, including parasitoids, predators, pathogens, and weed feeders. This information is broken down by family and the user may then select descriptions for any number of species.

Chapter 15: Authoring Curricular Material
Read the Fine Print
Rating

The Authoring Curricular Material Chapeter of the OSP User’s Guide describes Launcher and LaunchBuilder and shows how these programs are used to author, organize, and run Java-based curricular material. In order for most instructors to use OSP material in their courses (or in their educational, experimental, or theoretical research), the various physical models already available must be easily accessible, modifiable, and distributable. The paradigm for authoring, organizing, and running curricular material described in this Chapter uses the Launcher and LaunchBuilder programs to accomplish this goal.

Chariots for Apollo - A History of Manned Lunar Spacecraft
Unrestricted Use
Public Domain
Rating

This site, originally published as part of NASA's History Series, presents a detailed history of the Apollo program. The story begins in the 1950s with early efforts to beat the Soviet Union into space, carries through the Kennedy administration, with its famous challenge to land a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth by the end of the 1960s, and culminates with the landing of Apollo 11 on the Moon in July 1969. The site features text, pictures, references, and several appendices containing more detailed information.
