Mi Voz, Mi Vida: Latino College Students Tell Their Life Stories

by Andrew Garrod Robert Kilkenny Christina Gomez

Garrod (education, Dartmouth College), Kilkenny (social work, Simmons College, Boston), and Goméz (sociology and Latino studies, Northeastern Illinois U. , Chicago) present a collection of 15 first-person narratives by Latino college students, aged 18 to 22, who attended Dartmouth; all but one of the essays was written within the last four years. The authors reflect on formative relationships and influences, life-changing events, and factors that helped shape their values, educational outcomes, and sense of personal identity. The text does not focus on Dartmouth per se or on its educational impact on the students, but rather on their evolving lives and Latino identities. The contributions are grouped into four major themes from the essays-- resilience, biculturalism, mentoring, and identity. For educators, college administrators, students and their families.

Micro- and Nanoscale Fluid Mechanics: Transport in Microfluidic Devices

by Brian J. Kirby

This text focuses on the physics of fluid transport in micro- and nanofabricated liquid-phase systems, with consideration of gas bubbles, solid particles, and macromolecules. This text was designed with the goal of bringing together several areas that are often taught separately - namely, fluid mechanics, electrodynamics, and interfacial chemistry and electrochemistry - with a focused goal of preparing the modern microfluidics researcher to analyze and model continuum fluid mechanical systems encountered when working with micro- and nanofabricated devices. This text is not a summary of current research in the field, and it omits any discussion of microfabrication techniques or any attempt to summarize the technological state of the art. This text serves as a useful reference for practicing researchers but is designed primarily for classroom instruction. Worked sample problems are inserted throughout to assist the student, and exercises are included at the end of each chapter to facilitate use in classes.

Microarchaeology: Beyond the Visible Archaeological Record

by Stephen Weiner

The archaeological record is a combination of what is seen by eye, as well as the microscopic record revealed with the help of instrumentation. The information embedded in the microscopic record can significantly add to our understanding of past human behaviour, provided this information has not been altered by the passage of time. Microarchaeology seeks to understand the microscopic record in terms of the type of information embedded in this record, the materials in which this information resides, and the conditions under which a reliable signal can be extracted. This book highlights the concepts needed to extract information from the microscopic record. Intended for all archaeologists and archaeological scientists, it will be of particular interest to students who have some background in the natural sciences as well as archaeology.

Microeconomics

by Russell Cooper A. Andrew John

This textbook, Microeconomics: Theory Through Applications, centers around student needs and expectations through two premises: ... Students are motivated to study economics if they see that it relates to their own lives. ... Students learn best from an inductive approach, in which they are first confronted with a problem, and then led through the process of solving that problem. Many books claim to present economics in a way that is digestible for students; Russell and Andrew have truly created one from scratch. This textbook will assist you in increasing students' economic literacy both by developing their aptitude for economic thinking and by presenting key insights about economics that every educated individual should know.
