Scientific literacy is generally valued and acknowledged among educators as a desirable student learning outcome. However, what scientific literacy really means in terms of classroom practice and student learning is debatable due to the inherent complexity of the term and varying expectations of what it means for learning outcomes. To date the teacher voice has been noticeably absent from this debate even though the very nature of teacher expertise lies at the heart of the processes which shape students' scientific literacy. The chapters that comprise this book tap into the expertise of a group of primary teachers from Our Lady of Good Counsel (OLGC), a primary school that chose to actively engage in teaching for scientific literacy. By analyzing the insights and thinking that emerged as they attempted to unravel some of the pedagogical complexities associated with constructing an understanding of scientific literacy in their own classrooms, these teachers demonstrate the professional knowledge and skill inherent in the expertise of teaching and learning science in a primary classroom. The chapters in this book illustrate the processes and structures that were created at OGLC to provide the conditions that allowed these teachers to explore and build on the range of ideas that informed their approach to teaching for scientific literacy. This book is a compelling example of how a whole school approach to scientific literacy can make a difference for students' learning of science and offer a concrete example of the development of professional knowledge and practice of teachers.

"This book is by far the most comprehensive and orderly treatment of the subject. It is the work of experts with a wealth of both theoretical and practical experience with the subject and its connecting disciplines. It is an integral work... concepts and notation are at the same consistent level throughout the book. Quality of Service (QoS) is an absolutely critical part of any telecommunication services. This work fills a gap in the literature of what possibilities there are for satellites in providing global Internet services." Excerpted from the Foreword by Raymond L. Pickholtz, The George Washington University
Broadband Satellite Communications for Internet Access is a systems engineering methodology for satellite communication networks. It discusses the implementation of Internet applications that involve network design issues usually addressed in standard organizations. Various protocols for IP- and ATM-based networks are examined and a comparative performance evaluation of different alternatives is described. This methodology can be applied to similar evaluations over any other transport medium.
This book, suitable as a teaching text as well as a reference, covers:
-Satellite networks: technology, history and broadband communication satellites planned and launched into service.
-Trends Analysis: satellite networks covering physical, MAC, IP, transport layer protocols with an emphasis on TCP enhancements to account for fading, errors, noise, Doppler shifts and nomadic behavior.
-Quality of Service (QoS): end-to-end QoS model, framework and architectures including IntServ, DiffServ and MPLS traffic engineering for satellite IP networks, application QoS mapping.
-Satellite IP: design and implementation, DiffServ based QoS performance models for TCP and UDP traffic for GEO and MEO configurations.
-Interactive Multimedia over Satellite: TDMA and CDMA based return channel protocol models and analysis for DVB-RCS networks.
-Satellite ATM: analysis of fundamental questions (e.g. buffer requirements, TCP/ATM, efficiency, fairness, and multiple access models).
-International Standards: definitions, processes and agreed objectives for satellite IP and satellite ATM networks-ITU-R, ITU-T, IETF, ETSI, ATM Forum.
Whether you're a researcher, systems engineer, or a telecommunications/network specialist, Broadband Satellite Communications for Internet Access provides a comprehensive perspective on satellite networks. It addresses the end-to-end protocol stack, satellite design principles, QoS methodologies and international standards for building satellite network systems for multimedia applications.

Better than a cold shower-and a lot funnier.

Choking the chicken, spanking the monkey, airing the orchid-whatever you call it, none of the images in this book will encourage the gentle art of self-pleasure. This deceptively simple and strangely addictive book presents a laugh-out-loud collection of random pictures virtually guaranteed to dampen the urge of even the strongest libido.
