This week’s issues of Science and Science’s STKE focus on approaches to analyzing proteins and investigating their function in the proteomic era. Reviews in Science discuss the application of mass spectrometry to protein analysis and proteomics, probing protein dynamics with NMR, and the use of fluorescent probes to study proteins in living cells. A Protocol in STKE uses a photoreactive antagonist to inactivate cell surface receptors with electrophysiological recording to monitor trafficking of a specific type of glutamate receptor. An STKE Review discusses how to avoid problems in fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) experiment interpretation through the use of FRET standards and by considering how changes in the stoichiometry and abundance of FRET donors and acceptors affect FRET analysis.

This survey chemistry course is designed to introduce students to the world of chemistry. In this course, we will study chemistry from the ground up, learning the basics of the atom and its behavior. We will apply this knowledge to understand the chemical properties of matter and the changes and reactions that take place in all types of matter. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: Define the general term 'chemistry.' Distinguish between the physical and chemical properties of matter. Distinguish between mixtures and pure substances. Describe the arrangement of the periodic table. Perform mathematical operations involving significant figures. Convert measurements into scientific notation. Explain the law of conservation of mass, the law of definite composition, and the law of multiple proportions. Summarize the essential points of Dalton's atomic theory. Define the term 'atom.' Describe electron configurations. Draw Lewis structures for molecules. Name ionic and covalent compounds using the rules for nomenclature of inorganic compounds. Explain the relationship between enthalpy change and a reaction's tendency to occur.

Hands-On Astronomy: Observing Stars and Planets, Spring 2002

Background for and techniques of visual observation, electronic imaging, and spectroscopy of the Moon, planets, satellites, stars, and brighter deep-space objects. Weekly outdoor observing sessions using 8-inch diameter telescopes when weather permits. Indoor sessions introduce needed skills. Introduction to contemporary observational astronomy including astronomical computing, image and data processing, and how astronomers work. Student must maintain a careful and complete written log which is graded. In this seminar we explore the background and techniques of visual observation and imaging of the Moon, planets, and brighter deep-space objects using 8-inch telescopes. (Some sample images appear in our "photo album".) Telescope work begins with visual observing, then we advance to CCD (charge-coupled device) cameras. Each class observing session meets one evening a week. Whenever weather conditions permit us to observe outdoors we do so! In cloudy weather we'll try some astronomical computing and image processing indoors instead. Either way, virtually all the work for the seminar is done during the evening sessions, so students must attend section every week in order to pass. Past experience has been that if you're really enthusiastic about hands-on out-under-the-sky astronomy, enough to be willing to deal with dressing warmly, tinkering with equipment, and committing one evening a week, 12.409 is great fun! One student wrote, "Unlike most seminars, you will earn your units and, unlike most other MIT courses, you will look forward to doing it!" But we'll be direct: 12.409 is not for everyone, and in past years many whose interest was merely casual found themselves unwilling to devote one entire evening every week to the class. If your interest is only casual then consider whether a more typical astronomy survey subject might be a better choice, since it'll have more outside preparation time that you can rearrange at your discretion and less in-class time that you can't.

This collection of interactive computer models and simulations of common instruments and techniques used in analytical chemistry is available for free download. The software can be used on Macintosh or Windows computers. Most of the models have a point-and-click interface; users click buttons and drag sliders to control variables, and the models respond dynamically. They were designed to be used by individual students either as homework assignments, for in-class use in a computer lab environment, or in the laboratory for the analysis of student-generated data. Some of the models can be used by the instructor in lecture-demonstration environments. Most of them come with student assignment handouts attached. The mathematical basis for each model is described, including all cell definitions and equations. (less)

A compilation of several project manuscripts completed by Bethel University undergraduates in PHY330, Optics during spring semester of 2010. The first describes iodine spectroscopy experiments using a New Focus Velocity tunable diode laser. The second project is rubidium spectroscopy performed using a home-built laser similar to the one used in the workshop. The workshop spectroscopy demonstration is a combination of these two projects, using a home-built stabilized diode laser at 633 nm to do simple Iodine spectroscopy. The final manuscript below describes the wavemeter work and operartion, written by a recent Bethel University physics graduate, Sarah Anderson. (less)

Learners observe different light sources, outdoors and indoors, using prism glasses (diffraction glasses) and color filters. Natural light (sun) and artificial light (lamp, candle, LED) sources are broken up into component colors by the glasses, and filters are used to block different colors. Both shadows and paints are also explained as types of filters. The activity is written as part of a kit that could be checked out of a library, though the kit is not required. (less)
