Mathematics for Computer Science
A basic introduction to Calculus and Linear Algebra. The goal is to make students mathematically literate in preparation for studying a scientific/engineering discipline. The first week covers differential calculus: graphing functions, limits, derivatives, and applying differentiation to real-world problems, such as maximization and rates of change. The second week covers integral calculus: sums, integration, areas under curves and computing volumes. This is not meant to be a comprehensive calcu
TALAT Lecture 2701: Bridge Deck
This lecture illustrates the structural use of aluminium extrusions for the replacement of damaged concrete bridge decks as realized in a case in Sweden; it describes the technical and economic advantages of the chosen light-weight aluminium design. Basic knowledge of structural engineering and extrusion design; and some familiarity with TALAT lectures no. 1302, 1501, 2200, 2300 and 2400 is assumed.

TALAT Lecture 2504: Examples and Applications
This lecture shows how?to calculate the required fire resistance of un-insulated and insulated load bearing structural members such as columns and beams on the basis of a simple calculation method and according to ENV 1999-1-2; it points out more refined methods of analysis with the aid of computer programs; it presents some approved and existing fire resistance rated applications, e.g. in the off-shore industry. Background in structural engineering and some familiarity with TALAT lectures 2501-
TALAT Lecture 2404: Quality Considerations
This lecture provides understanding of underlying concepts and tools for handling experimental data and its comparison to existing design recommendations; it provides understanding of classification parameters for structural details and quantitative links between design principles and quality criteria; it enables sophisticated design for further structural details not included in current recommendations; it demonstrates methods of enhancing fatigue strength, especially as post-weld treatments. B
TALAT Lecture 2401: Fatigue Behaviour and Analysis
This lecture explains why, when and where fatigue problems may arise and the special significance to aluminium as structural material; it helps to understand the effects of material and loading parameters on fatigue; to appreciate the statistical nature of fatigue and its importance in data analysis, evaluation and use; it shows how to estimate fatigue life under service conditions of time-dependent, variable amplitude loading; how to estimate stresses acting in notches and welds with conceptual
Risk Management for Enterprises and Individuals
This book is intended for the Risk Management and Insurance course where Risk Management is emphasized. When we think of large risks, we often think in terms of natural hazards such as hurricanes, earthquakes or tornadoes Perhaps man-made disasters come to mind such as the terrorist attacks in the U.S. on September 11, 2001. Typically we have overlooked financial crises, such as the credit crisis of 2008. However, these types of man-made disasters have the potential to devastate the global mark
TALAT Lecture 2104.01: Case Study on Glass Roof
This lecture provides the teacher and students with a basis to develop sound and appropriate glass and aluminium roof designs; it explains the principles behind good design. After working through the course, the students will be in a position to design a glass roof which meets the requirements of local building regulations, and which is suited to the national traditions of the destination markets. This includes the collection of data on the local climate, because the product needs to withstand t
The Problem-Based Learning Directory
Searchable database of ways that different faculty at colleges and institutions worldwide are using problem-based learning. At the time this annotation was created the database contained information for 104 courses at 90 institutions across 29 countries. As such the site will be useful both to faculty interested in adapting and implementing problem-based learning exercises in their classrooms.

The World's Biomes
The World's Biomes, provided by the University California Berkeley's Museum of Paleontology, is an introduction to the earth's ecological regions. Biomes are the world's ecological communities, distinguishable by their predominant vegetation and by the organisms that have adapted to that vegetation. This site provides an introduction to the environmental and ecological features typical of various aquatic, desert, forest, grassland, and tundra biomes. Users can read about the planet's ecosystems,
Ground Water and Drinking Water
The Environmental Protection Agencies Web site, Ground Water and Drinking Water (last mentioned in the March 29, 2002 Scout Report), has many additional high quality features not mentioned in previous reports. The site has continually updated information regarding drinking water regulation, as well as general facts such as where drinking water comes from, what's in it, drinking water standards, how you can protect your drinking water, a link for kids, and an extensive amount of additional materi
Women in Engineering Organization (WIEO)
This portion of the Women in Engineering website defines what the term engineering means, gives some general guidelines as to what it takes to become an engineer, and defines types of engineering. This resource is appropriate for all users, particularly for girls and women, because it targets girls or women, uses inclusive images of girls or women, and shows how engineering can be used to solve real-world problems.

Accuracy and Resolution
This site focuses on mass accuracy and resolution. Examples are presented illustrating the difference between the average and monoisotopic masses.
Applications of Chemometrics
Examples of the use of chemometrics in clinical, petrochemical, and industrial analysis, from chromatographic and mass spectrometric data (PDF).

Story of Stuff International
From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, a
