Small group work is becoming an increasingly popular structure for promoting communication, sense-making, and reasoning in the mathematics class. This increased sense of student autonomy must co-exist with the curriculum, the expectation to provide opportunities for students to master certain...
According to many biologists, explaining the evolution of morphological novelty and behavioral innovation are central endeavors in contemporary evolutionary biology. These endeavors are inherently multidisciplinary but also have involved a high degree of controversy. One key source of controversy...
Freshwater Sponges Have Functional, Sealing Epithelia with High Transepithelial Resistance and Negative Transepithelial PotentialDownload
Epithelial tissue — the sealed and polarized layer of cells that regulates transport of ions and solutes between the environment and the internal milieu — is a defining characteristic of the Eumetazoa. Sponges, the most ancient metazoan phylum , , are generally believed to lack true...
A new urgency is emerging around nuclear power development and this urgency is accentuated by the post-tsunami events at the Fukushima Daiiche nuclear power plant in Japan. This urgency extends beyond the dramatic events in Japan, however, to many other regions of the world and situations where...
Recent shifts towards spatial issues within education are examined, and mapping is identified as particularly important. The multidisciplinary trend of complexity science is surveyed, in turn, through the lens of physics and education research. The provincial education system of Alberta is...
