Light provides an important context for studying about the world in which we live. This topic can be researched in many disciplines, including biology, math, and physics. This module focuses on the seasonal characteristics of light and its affects on our earth and living systems. The lessons can be accomplished by direct hands-on field and laboratory investigations using graphing calculators, CBL, and other scientific equipment. Students will use Excel and Mathematica to investigate the physical properties of light. The students will model and analyze data collected during the investigations.

A pdf file that can be read using the free Abode Acrobat Reader or, for more functionality, with Acrobat Pro ($). The eBook's figures, equations, sections, chapters, index, table of contents, code listings, glossary, animations and executable codes (both Applets and Python programs) are linked, much like in a Web document. There are also links to video-based lectures covering most topics in the text, as well as to the slides used in the lectures. Section 1.2 of the text discusses how to use the various electronic features. Some movies are encapsulated into the text and some equations are linked to their xml forms (which can be imported into Maple or Mathematica for manipulation).

The Probability and Statistics EBook is an internet-based electronic textbook. The materials, tools, and demonstrations presented in this EBook would be very useful for advanced-placement (AP) statistics educational curriculum. The EBook was initially developed by the UCLA Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR). However, all statistics instructors, researchers, and educators are encouraged to contribute to this project and improve the content of these learning materials. There are four novel features of this specific Statistics EBook: it is community-built; completely open-access (in terms of use and contributions); blends information technology, scientific techniques, and modern pedagogical concepts; and is multilingual.

This module presents some of the general ideas behind and basics principles of high-performance computing (HPC) as performed on a supercomputer. These concepts should remain valid even as the technical specification of the latest machines continually change. Although this material is aimed at HPC supercomputers, if history be a guide, present HPC hardware and software become desktop machines in less than a decade.
