Submitted by Tommy Cornelis on September 4, 2012
Welcome to the very first Gooru Corner!
This week in The Gooru Corner, we’re taking a look at Cardiovascular and Respiratory Diseases. Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally, and hundreds of millions of people worldwide are affected by respiratory diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. What are the symptoms of these diseases, and what can you do to prevent or treat them? Check today's STEMdaily for a featured resource on congestive heart failure, on Wednesday for a collection on cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, and on Friday for a quiz to assess how much you’ve learned about the diseases.
Not familiar with The Gooru Corner? Gooru is a free search engine for learning, and we are collaborating with them to provide STEMdaily readers with a featured resource (Monday), collection (Wednesday) and quiz (Friday) every week. Features will cover 5th-12th grade math and science topics, all of which are hand-picked by teachers and aligned to standards. Resources are interactive and span 8 different multimedia forms, such as digital textbooks, videos and games, to maximize student engagement. Collections are playlists of resources that provide a complete study experience, and quizzes are enriched with hints and explanations to ensure student comprehension.
