Sizeasy allows you to compare dimensions of items you find described on the web often. Many online stores show the dimensions of items like Product Dimensions: 192x45x32mm. Although useful this doesn't give us a feel for the real size of the item that we would get going into a high street store. Sizeasy allows you to take this size information and see it drawn out to scale next to everyday items so you get a real feel for its size.

FindSounds  Site Reviews(0)
If you work with slide shows, movies or music, visit FindSounds. It's a search site for audio. You'll find sound effects and samples of musical instruments. Simply download the sounds and add them to your next project. You'll be amazed at what you'll find. I listened to killer bees, sea lions, applause and the didgeridoo. Even if you don't work with music or video, FindSounds is fun. Your children will love it. And if you know any birdwatchers, forward this newsletter to them. It's a great way to find birdcalls.

Mathcasts  Site Reviews(0)
Educational technologies continue to press onwards and upwards, and screencasts would seem to be one of the latest trends in this area. Screencasts basically combine narration with on-screen writing in order to demonstrate various procedures, principles, and processes. This website brings together a number of screencasts designed to teach various mathematical endeavors, and it will be quite helpful for teachers and those students who find themselves confounded by such matters as graphing points on a grid and the dreaded quadratic formula. Visitors can browse these *mathcasts* by topic or by specific subject matter. Additionally, the site contains information on how to use these devices in the classroom and how interested parties might create their own mathcasts.

National Geophysical Data Center  Site Reviews(0)
Educators in the geophysical sciences will find much to work with on this site created by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration*s National Geophysical Data Center. Utilizing data captured over time by their team of scientific experts, the site includes a climate timeline informational tool which can be used to demonstrate the transformation of the Earth*s climate over the past 100,000 years and a section titled *All About Snow*, which provides answers to questions about snow. The real treats here are the interactive hands-on activities that include an origami balloon of elevations and an even more complex dodecahedron globe that offers a three- dimensional visualization for use by students and teachers. Finally, the *Visualizing Data* area contains a few recent additions that can be used in the classroom, such as several animated dives to the bottom of the Marianas Trench off of the Philippines.

The Grapes of Staph: Microbiology  Site Reviews(0)
With its witty appellation, the Grapes of Staph website is the creation of one Professor Gary Kaiser, who teaches microbiology at the Community College of Baltimore County. Over the past few years, Professor Kaiser has assembled a prodigious collection of materials that can be used by fellow educators and aspiring microbiology students from Neah Bay to Nepal. First-time visitors will want to delve right into the lecture guide, which provides hundreds of lecture note pages, illustrations, animations, and photomicrographs. Students who have just entered college will want to take a look at Professor Kaiser*s very helpful *Study Tips* area, which offers six specific suggestions on how to succeed in any college-level course. The *Tutorials* area also serves as a nice supplement, as it contains nice explanations of such processes as cellular respiration, photosynthesis, and of course, protein synthesis. The site is rounded out by a selection of external sites of interest, including links to the American Society for Microbiology and Science.
