Part II: The royal courts in Spain and the wealthy burghers in the Netherlands commissioned major paintings by Velazquez and Rembrandt and shaped their content. [P]

1:00 AM 
Science In Focus: Force and Motion  "Keep On Rolling"  Roller coasters are filled with twists and turns, as changes in height and direction supply a variety of push and pull forces. In this workshop, first-grade students build on their prior experience with rolling objects. By designing and constructing their own roller coaster made from ramps, cardboard tubes, and flexible tubes, the students experiment with ways to get a marble from the top of a table into a bucket on the floor, some distance away. [G]

Learning Math: Patterns, Functions & Algebra  "Functions and Algorithms"  Investigate algorithms and functions. Topics covered include the importance of doing and undoing in mathematics, determining when a process can or cannot be undone, using function machines to picture and undo algorithms, and the unique outputs produced by functions. [G]

2:30 AM 
Learning Math: Patterns, Functions & Algebra  "Proportional Reasoning"  Look at direct variation and proportional reasoning. This investigation will help you to differentiate between relative and absolute meanings of "more" and to compare ratios without using common denominator algorithms.

Unseen Life On Earth: An Introduction to Microbiology  "The Unity of Living Systems"  All life has evolved with only two basic architectural styles, procaryotic and eucaryotic whose structure and function are the focus of this program. It also emphasizes the molecular and biochemical similarity of all life. [P]

5:00 AM

Cooking fish this way makes it easy and accessible. [P]

Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "Fired Up, Down Under"  Ozzies (Australians) and Kiwis (New Zealanders) may live half a world away, but they're every bit as grilling-obsessed as we North Americans are.
