  • The Geomaths MathHelp material - University College London (UCL)
    Part of the Interactive Mathematics and Geoscience Education (IMAGE) project, Geomaths MathHelp provides mathematics self-study material embedded within the geological sciences. MathHelp "notebooks" cover specific mathematical topics accessed through a relevant geological context; for example, power functions through seismic velocities, trigonometry through cliff erosion, and integration through sediment accumulation. The notebooks contain explanations, illustrations, examples and practice quizzes (online, for registered students). Modules are organized into revision, 1st level (corresponding roughly to pre-A level and A-level standard), and 2nd level (for students of Geological Sciences who have A level mathematics or equivalent) respectively. A mathematical glossary is also constantly available.
    The research activities are both basic and applied, with In September 2003 a collaborativeM.Sc. program in geology, involving the Department of geology and
    Historical Background
    The first Ph.D. in physics was given in 1900 to J.C. McLennan, who later made the Department a major force in the development of physics in Canada. The pioneering work in superfluid He and superconductors (McLennan) and the construction of North America's first electron microscope (Burton) in the 1930s established the Department's international reputation. In the 1950s, the Department was pre-eminent in the field of Raman molecular spectroscopy (Welsh). Its faculty now continues this tradition in most of the important fields of physics. Over five hundred young men and women with doctorates in physics from the University of Toronto are working in government, in industry and in education within Canada and around the world. Two of them have been awarded Nobel Prize in Physics: Prof. A.L. Schawlow (1949) was a co-winner of Nobel Prize in 1981, and Prof. B.N. Brockhouse (1950) was a co-winner in 1994.
    Master of Science Doctor of Philosophy
    Areas of study
    Experimental and Theoretical research opportunities are offered in the following areas: Planetary Physics; Subatomic Physics and Astrophysics; Quantum Optics and Condensed Matter Physics.

    Role-Playing Scenarios by Type
    Only a few of the following examples are actually ready-to-run in an undergraduate classroom, but they will provide inspiration and materials for your own role-playing exercises. Many of the scenarios, characters, and assignments need a few added details, which will enable you to tailor them to your course.
    Introductory Exercises
    These activities involve little preparation on the part of students and can be highly scripted. Often, they involve getting the students out of their seats and simulating their characters through movement (active learning). They are often a great way to introduce a difficult concept.
    • An Activity to Introduce the Geoscience Perspective : This role-playing exercise introduces students to geology by having them examine rocks from the perspective of a child, a sculptor, a geologist or someone from another walk of life. Changing With the Tide : This lesson plan is written around a brief role-play in which students learn about and act out plants and animals in a salt marsh habitat as the tides change.

    Some fundamental concepts and topics that might be expected in this section include: (1) the structure and physical constitution of the earth, (2) the internal and external dynamic processes operating to modify the earth's surface and near-surface regions, (3) the nature and origin of the continents and ocean basins, (4) some of the methodology, experimentation, and observations used by geologists in attempting to understand the physical and biological evolution of our earth in time. Some attention will focus on the role of the professional geologist and the knowledgeable layperson, as they consider together some current and potential problems arising from continued utilization and modification of our physical environment. Students can expect considerable flexibility in the format of the course. Lecture, discussion and laboratory approaches will be used, supplemented by videos, other visual aids and (perhaps) a field trip.
    Some background in mathematics is suggested (Math PL22 strongly recommended), as students will encounter lab exercises that incorporate basic math skills, including Algebra. Computers are occasionally used in lab, but no prior experience is expected. Departmental lab manual costs $5. This course has both lecture and separate lab periods that each student must attend.

    Modelling and Advanced Technology SIG welcome activities meetings annual reports ... contact MAT_SIG: Activities Background Mathematical models, both statistical and analytical, facilitate understanding of spatial data (and particularly remotely sensed data) and the processes that generate them. Further, the techniques that depend on such models provide powerful tools for the analysis of remotely sensed data. Often these models and techniques are confined to limited subject areas through lack of cross-disciplinary communication. The RSS MAT SIG provides a forum (for example, through annual meetings) for the presentation of up-to-date remote sensing research concerned with the development and application of models and techniques and an open environment for the cross-fertilization of ideas between researchers. The RSS MAT SIG aims to provide a focus for advancing research. Some of the most interesting remote sensing research topics in recent years have been associated with new developments in models and techniques (for example, BRDF modelling, fractal analysis, fuzzy logic, neural networks, geostatistics and so on). One of the main aims of the RSS MAT SIG is to encourage such specific research, often on a collaborative basis. Further, the RSS MAT SIG aims to foster the understanding of advanced mathematical models and techniques by a more general audience so that they may be applied more widely in remote sensing research.

    Summary of Current Activities
    1) C2 for K-4 Teachers ($13,135)
    This program, addressing Competence and Confidence, fully complements our Benchmark #5, “Aligning Professional Development with Content Standards.” Jefferson County Standard #3 at the district level is “Data Analysis,” and thus the course has been designed around the statement of the standard, key standard components, and benchmarks for K-4 students. The teachers will be taught the content for K-12 students, and will develop lessons using the local SBE template for aligning instruction, assessment, and transfer to the standards. The coaching aspect provides the teachers with assistance in both pedagogy and content knowledge. 2) State CONNECT Activities ($1,865)
    The funds in this program will provide registration fees and travel expenses for up to five collaborative facilitators to attend the 1997 CONNECT Planning Retreat on July 29-31, 1997 and for up to eight facilitators to attend the “Best Practices Conference.” 3) Teaching Science with TOYS ($2,500)
    This highly successful, innovative, and hands-on program has been aligned to the science standards and effectively integrates science and mathematics by developing a firm understanding of basic probability and data analysis. By using well-known games, the fear of relevant mathematical concepts (that seems to be endemic in middle school students, particularly girls) can be diminished. Teachers from Jefferson County Schools, Adams 12, Denver Public Schools, Clear Creek Schools, and Cherry Creek Schools will be invited to participate in the workshops.
