Educational Resources in this website, for teachers who
now teach
(or may want to teach) Art-Science or Sport-Science 

This page supplements the resources-and-tips you'll find in the
Sitemap for Whole-Person Education which says, "You want ideas
that will help you in general [these ideas are in the sitemap-page]
and also in a specific area you're teaching,"
as in this page and
in the analogous resource-pages for other areas.

Our website can be useful if you're a teacher of arts or sports, or if you want to use these activities as real-world applications to motivate students who (temporarily) are less interested in science than in arts or sports.

an I.O.U. — Currently, Color-Science is the only well developed page, although Music (especially Musical Improvisation) and Bicycling also have some content;  eventually there will be more content in more areas, and this will happen sooner if you help us!

Art-Science:  the science of Color, and Painting, Fractals, Music (and Musical Improvisation), Photography, Sculpture, Juggling, and more.

Sport-Science:  the science of Nutrition, Sports Medicine, Training, and Performance Drugs;  Running, Rowing, Bicycling, and Swimming;  Game Strategies, Sport Psychology, Sociology of Sports, and more.

Why is the editor especially interested in these topics?

Science-and-Religion for Understanding & Personal Faith may be useful for teachers (and their students) in all areas,

and a SITEMAP will help you explore the website for Whole-Person Education (with resources for Effective Education and Science-Theology Interactions, using a Multiple-Views Approach) and other parts of the ASA Website, plus TIPS FOR TEACHERS.

You're an expert in your areas, so...
if you want to help us improve our website — for example, if you've discovered a great web-resource and you tell us about it so we can share it with others — your assistance will be greatly appreciated.   How can you help?


        A Personal Interest in Science for Arts & Sports
        Many people think art, sport, and science are inherently interesting, and I (the editor) have found them especially fascinating.
        SPORTS:  At one time I considered becoming a kinesiology major, to study three aspects of high jumping:  biomechanical analysis (re: how much "jumping force" goes into rotation and vertical uplift, how to generate more uplift, and so on), muscle physiology (inspired by a hitchhiker who asked "why is there never a superhorse that runs twice as fast?", I asked "what limits the jumping ability of humans?"), and strategies for learning & teaching physical skills (as in using mental rehearsal, and other techniques, to modify split-second, mid-air actions during a high jump).  I've been a teacher of tennis, juggling, and ballroom dancing, and also enjoy many other sports.  {more about my enthusiasm for sports, as a spectator and participant}
        ARTS:  During a break between graduate studies at UW-West and UW-Midwest, I designed and made bamboo flutes and wrote a "how to make music" booklet for buyers, then held workshops on musical improvisation for the Northwest Folklife Festival, and wrote a page about Musical Improvisation.  Later, as a grad student at the U of Wisconsin, I was an instructor for a "Physics in the Arts" course, teaching about the Physics-and-Math of Music Theory plus Color Science and Photography.

This website for Whole-Person Education has TWO KINDS OF LINKS:
an ITALICIZED LINK keeps you inside a page, moving you to another part of it,
 a NON-ITALICIZED LINK opens another page.  Both keep everything inside this window, 
so your browser's BACK-button will always take you back to where you were.

Here are tips-pages (to supplement
the SITEMAP described above) with
educational resources for teachers of
Biology, Chemistry, Physics plus Astronomy, Geology
  eclectic interdisciplinary studies (Environmental, Historical, etc) 
 Psychology, Sociology, History, and other Social Sciences     Education 
Mathematics and Computer Science     Engineering and Design
Science in Arts and Sports     Philosophy and Theology

plus useful ideas for teachers and students in all fields,
Science-and-Religion for Understanding and Personal Faith
