From the introduction:

Hello there . . . ! Welcome to English Banana.com’s Big Grammar Book. It’s the third fantastic book from English Banana and the aim this time is to practise grammar, grammar and, er, more grammar!

It’s jam-packed from cover to cover with a great selection of photocopiable worksheets taken from the popular English Banana.com website. We wanted to provide teachers with a really useful book of no-nonsense grammar worksheets that they can dip into and use in class with students at Entry Level (ESOL Core Curriculum Entry Levels 1 & 2). It is also ideal for students to work with at home since the answers are all printed at the back.

The book is divided into four parts and is graded in difficulty, so that it begins with some basic stuff and builds up to more challenging grammar activities. It features a selection of Essential English worksheets which provide practice for crucial basic areas of knowledge for learners at Entry Level, like using numbers, writing the alphabet, spelling days and months correctly, and so on.

HIV Problem Space
Conditions of Use:

This problem space enables investigators to explore data from a published study by Markham et al on HIV evolution within individual patients. The study involved 15 injection drug users in Baltimore, Maryland (USA) who became infected with HIV between 1989 and 1992. Patients came in at approximately six-month intervals ("visits") to have blood samples taken. From these samples, the researchers extracted and sequenced multiple copies of proviral DNA. Patients' CD4 counts were also measured at each visit to assess their level of immune function. In this problem space, you will have access to the following materials: * background information on HIV/AIDS, * the original Markham et al. reference and other primary literature, * viral sequences from each visit of each patient, * patients' CD4 counts at each visit, * phylogenetic trees of the virus sequences from each patient, * a phylogenetic tree of each patient's starting consensus viral sequence, * a published activity using this data from the book Microbes Count!, * and additional materials prepared by other users of the problem space. You can use this data to explore a number of different questions. Here are a few general questions to get you started: * Does the virus evolve the same way in different patients? * Are there any specific mutations that cause rapid immune decline? * What types of natural selection might be influencing HIV evolution? * Is HIV being transmitted between patients after initial infection?

Learners and Learning: Section 2, Learning to know what we dont know
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Section Two begins to focus on how we learn in greater detail. In particular, it explores the following question: How is it possible for those who do not know something to come to know it?How do we, as teachers, enable learners to learn by moving them from the known to the unknown. We tackle this question by exploring the ways in which human minds: construct connections between ideas; use what is known to understand new and unknown things; are challenged to change old misunderstandings by new and contradictory understandings.

Learning how to learn: a process we all engage in throughout our lives, but no single method of learning guarantees success. This unit aims to make the process of learning much more explicit by inviting you to apply various ideas and activities to your own study as a way of increasing your awareness of your own learning. Most learning has to be an active process - and this is particularly true of learning how to learn.
