Family First - The Great MGM Musicals (12/28/04)

The Great MGM Musicals Page

At one time, there was a studio that boasted of "more stars than there are in heaven". That studio was Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and from the mid-1920's until the late 1950's, they were the studio that was the benchmark that others were measured against. The genre of film that they were most noted for, the musical, is the basis of today's FamSite.

Called The Great MGM Musicals Page, this page is a salute to those great musicals. From the films of Arthur Freed to the works of Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, and Fred Astaire, there are links to all their films and more. You will find poster reproductions, cast and crew lists, synopsis and reviews.

This is a site that reflects the enthusiasm of the webmaster. It is a pleasure to visit, especially if you love old movies. Be sure to pass this on to a friend.

Ancient Observatories: Chaco Canyon

If you think Stonehenge is a fascinating piece of stonework, wait until you
discover Chaco Canyon. Located in a remote area of New Mexico, the canyon
was once home to an ancient tribe known as Chicoans, who continue to be
studied for their remarkable abilities in architecture and astronomy.

This website, sponsored by NASA, is a beautiful trip into not just the
breathtaking visions of Chaco Canyon, but also the world of
Archeoastronomy. The Chacoans were famed skywatchers, using petroglyphs
and other ancient but accurate methods to monitor the sun, the changing of
the seasons and other astronomical occurrences such as eclipses and the
cycles of the sun and moon.

Anyone who thinks William Shakespeare is challenging to read hasn't tackled the writings of Chaucer. As many of us remember from school, the brilliant author of "The Canterbury Tales" wrote in a style of Old English that can be a bit difficult to pronounce, to say the least.The Chaucer Metapage Audio Files is an academic resource for students who are currently studying the famed author. It contains links to a variety of university sites, where they can download audio files of various professors reading Chaucer's work in the 'correct' Old English pronunciation, as well as learn more about the vocabulary and phonetics of the time in which he wrote.

Online since 1999, this reading motivation program and resource center is
designed and maintained by the Sylvan Learning Foundation. Designed for
students in grades kindergarten through nine, the site allows young people
to create their own book lists and take multiple-choice quizzes on the books
they've read as well. The site is hosted by the colorful animated duo of Rex
Reader (a rather well-read Tyrannosaurus Rex) and Bailey Bookmark, a learned
canine who can bark in 14 languages. From the homepage, visitors can browse
through the Literacy Calendar, take a look through the current reading
resources (compiled by Rex and Bailey themselves), and look through recently
recommended books. The "Parents Place" area is a good place for parents to
learn about books for children, reading outreach events, and tips for
helping their students become passionate about reading. Needless to say, the
"Kids Zone" contains some of the helpful quizzes mentioned above and some
games that help reading more enjoyable. [KMG]

The Economics Classroom
The so-called "dismal science" may be a difficult subject to teach even atthe college level, but one can also imagine that it might be more so in highschool. Fortunately, the Annenberg/CPB organization has created this ratheruseful workshop for teachers working across grades nine through 12 who areteaching economics. The programs are the result of a collaborative effort byPacific Street Films and the National Council on Economic Education. Whileteachers could opt to register for the workshops (for which they must pay afee), they can register on this website (at no charge) and watch the eightworkshops on their own home or work computer. Designed primarily foreducators with little or no background in economics, the topics cover suchmaterial as the global economy, how markets work, and fiscal policy. Thisnice resource is rounded out by a selection of relevant links to suchorganizations as the National Council on Economic Education. [KMG]

Marine Navigation in the Age of Exploration

To accompany a major exhibition, Spain in the Age of Exploration, 1492-1819,
the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) presents this interactive website that
illustrates the use of four ancient nautical instruments: the Quadrant,
Asrolabe, Octant, and Chronometer. Each instrument's section includes
pictures, a bit of history, and a description of how it was used. For
example, the astrolabe was originally devised by Persian astronomers, and is
used to determine latitude at sea by measuring the angle of the sun or other
stars. In addition, the site includes an early map of North America (1730)
and a movie showing David Burch from the Starpath School of Navigation,
demonstrating the use of an octant. [DS]

Java demos for probability and statistics
Grade(s): 10 - Post-Sec. ENC#: 032011
Synopsis: These java applets are designed to make probability and statistics more comprehensible to your students--and to you! Applets cover topics such as poisson distribution, linear regression, and bivariate normal distribution.
This internet site offers ten Java applets which demonstrate probability and statistics topics. Students can explore these topics through interaction with a normal distribution calculator, a Poisson distribution model, or a Buffon's Needle model. Additional simulations involve topics such as the Central Limit Theorem, Linear Regression, and a proportions test using a Bernoulli random variable. Each applet is accompanied by text which describes the applet and discusses the related mathematics and formulas involved. For example, one applet simulates finding confidence intervals for the mean of a normal random variable. The user may choose a confidence interval of 1.0, 0.5, or 0.1. Sample data and the confidence intervals are shown on a graph using their calculated sample mean and sample standard deviation. Source codes and references are also offered. Abstracted 02/05. (Author/DKK)

Physics illuminations
Grade(s): 9 - Post-Sec. ENC#: 032089
Synopsis: The wealth of java applets on this site makes it one you'll want to return to again and again. Sample applets include motion diagrams, graphs of every stripe and shape, and energy bar charts--just to name a few! The site's author suggests using the applets for student self-study and practice.

This web site, developed for student self-study and practice, provides simulations, guided problems, animated visual sequences, and simple experiments to aid in understanding physics. The web site is continually being updated with the current topics covering kinematics, vectors, dynamics, work, and energy. Visitors can select from links to each of the topics. Once a link is chosen, visitors are presented with sublinks about the topic, text, and an applet that visually displays the information. For instance, visitors can examine information about motion diagrams under the topic of vectors. The text about motion diagrams explains velocity, acceleration, and displacements. The applet displays a ball moving across a screen at a constant velocity. Visitors can see other applets of balls speeding up or slowing down by clicking on the appropriate links. Sun Java Plug-in is needed to run the applications. Visitors are provided with a link from where they can download the Plug-in. Abstracted 02/05. (Author/ALK)


Geometry Java applet gallery
Grade(s): 9 - Post-Sec. ENC#: 032059
Synopsis: Get your hands on the good stuff at this geometry extravaganza! From basic applets to triangle calculators and advanced principles such as Napoleon's theorem, this showcase of java applets is sure to both captivate and educate geometry students.

This web page, suitable for secondary and post-secondary students, provides interactive geometry java applets organized into four categories: triangles, basic geometry, advanced geometry, and design mechanisms. In most cases, students can either drag vertices or type length and angle measures in order to manipulate figures. Each category has several applets, often accompanied by questions requiring students to use inductive thinking in order to establish conjectures. Some applet pages state a theorem and then use the applet to convince users that the theorem holds in all cases. The basic geometry category explores topics such as Pythagorean triples, incircles, kites, and chords. Users can use the triangle applets as calculators for constructing triangles and computing lengths and angles. For example, one calculator/applet computes the interior angles of a triangle based on the side lengths given by the student.

Post-secondary students may find more use in the advanced geometry applets. These explore more complex concepts such as Napoleon's theorem and cubic spline constructions. The mechanisms category contains four applets illustrating mechanical engineering topics. A Geometry Formula Atlas provides users with images, definitions, and formulas for circles and tangents, quadrilaterals, intersections, and triangles. Abstracted 2/05 (Author/AJC)


The mechanical universe and beyond
[Shortened URL: ]
Grade(s): 9 - Post-Sec. ENC#: 032076
Synopsis: Something for every week of the year! That's right, this Annenberg site features 52 episodes of the Mechanical Universe and Beyond on streaming video. From Galileo to Newton to Kepler and beyond, the series is designed to make physics accessible and meaningful for all students.

This web site provides information about current research methods in environmental health sciences. The site is divided into two sections that discuss lab tools, such as gas chromatography and flow cytometry, and another section that describes other electronic resources on immunology and environmental health. In the sections that describe the lab methods, users are taken through a series of pages that explain the toxins that can be detected with the selected method. For example, when investigating the flow cytometry method, an overview of the toxin dioxin is given. In addition to this information, a case study is presented that requires the use of the method of interest. When it is time for students to use the flow cytometer in this example, a diagram of the device is shown. The diagram allows users to see how the device works and to read about the components of the device. The student is then given sample data to see if they can solve the case study. In this case, the sample data is intended to help users determine if dioxin was the cause of immune suppression in test mice. Abstracted 2/05. (Author/MTL)

X-43A: NASA Goes Hypersonic

Today's site from the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration,
features a presentation on that latest aeronautical marvel -- the scramjet
engine. Gentle Subscribers will discover riveting information and photos on
the amazing X-43A aircraft.

"NASA's X-43A is a hypersonic, scramjet-powered research aircraft designed
to fly at speeds up to Mach 10. ... [It] screamed into the record books ...
[in November 2004], demonstrating an air-breathing engine can fly at nearly
10 times the speed of sound. Preliminary data from the scramjet-powered
research vehicle show its revolutionary engine worked successfully at
nearly Mach 9.8, or 7,000 mph." - from the website

The site offers graphics and material on this new concept aircraft,
designed to be a more efficient alternative to the conventional booster
space rocket. Background articles highlight the risks of the program as
well as the engineers and scientists behind its conception. There are video
clips and still photos of its launch from a B-52 aircraft, along with a
comprehensive pdf fact sheet and NASA's news releases on the project.

Archimedes of Syracuse: The Father of Buoyancy

"People have been aware of objects floating on water (or sinking) since before recorded history. But it was not until Archimedes of Syracuse came along, that the theory of flotation and the buoyancy principle were defined." Archimedes was a mathematician born in 287 BCE, in the city of Syracuse on the island of Sicily According to this University of Utah site, Archimedes is best remembered for a discovery involving the crown of King Hiero II. Learn why Archimedes shouted "Eureka!" and how he proved that the king's crown maker had defrauded him.

HyperPhysics: Buoyancy

For high-school and college physics students, HyperPhysics is an illustrated, hyperlinked, mind map of hundreds of physics topics. The material can be scrolled through from top to bottom or you can jump around, following the links in each short article. Topics related to buoyancy include density, mass, weight, fluid pressure, submerged volume, buoyant force, Archimedes Principle, and Pascal's Principle.

NASA: Buoyancy: Archimedes Principle

Helicopters and airplanes depend on thrust and forward speed to fly. Hot air balloons and dirigibles rely on buoyancy (or differences in air density) for lift. This NASA page for high school students is part of a larger site on aeronautics. It offers a short article on buoyancy, and concludes with five exercises to test your understanding of the Archimedes Principle. At the bottom of the page you'll find links to more aeronautics topics.

Relative Speeds
Combined velocities, relative speeds, and space travelers: what do they have to do with your class? Quite a lot, since each one of us is hurtling through space at a speed of sixty-six thousand miles per hour. Students will hop aboard a commercial jet, drop into the International Space Station, and open a parachute to understand how relative speeds work. Online activities in energy and motion and speed and velocity support student investigations.

The page now contains 319 links. We have made an effort to
include only sites that are generated by the author/illustrator him
or herself or in some special cases by an individual fan of the
author/illustrator's work. If you wish to search for all sites about
a particular author or illustrator, including publisher sites, we
suggest you utilize Google or AltaVista for your search.
In the next couple of weeks we will be adding a substantial number of
newly verified websites -- particularly those of young adult authors.
If anyone has additional sites that we do not have listed --
suggestions are always welcome. We make an effort NOT to link to
sites that are purely selling sites or advertisement in nature.
