Intro to Engineering
Students are introduced to the basic principles behind engineering and the types of engineering while learning about a popular topic - the Olympics. The involvement of engineering in modern sports is amazing and pervasive. Students learn about the techniques of engineering problem solving, including brainstorming and the engineering design process. The importance of thinking out of the box is stressed through a discussion of the engineering required to build grand, often complex, Olympic event c

Physics of Roller Coasters
Students explore the physics utilized by engineers in designing today’s roller coasters, including potential and kinetic energy, friction, and gravity. First, students learn that all true roller coasters are completely driven by the force of gravity and that the conversion between potential and kinetic energy is essential to all roller coasters. Second, they also consider the role of friction in slowing down cars in roller coasters. Finally, they examine the acceleration of roller coaster cars

Architect and Structural Engineer in interactive design
We are convinced that an interactive design process involving engineers and architects will create values to a project. Looking back there have been some obstacles, like a week?s time for exchange of drawings with traditional postal services; manual calculation methods, which could not be spoiled on loose grounds like architect?s sketches; different media ? architect?s drawings and engineer?s numbers in tables; attitudes and traditional roles, implemented already in education. Today most of thes

Active Learning in Advanced Analytical Chemistry, a course for first year graduate students
The introductory lecture course for graduate-level analytical chemistry is commonly understood to require students to be broadly aware of analytical tools, current problems, and methods for linking problems and measurements. This article describes an active learning approach to this course, using review articles to focus discussion and reveal gaps in student knowledge. Students give most of the course\'s lectures, with grades based on lectures, exams, and a term paper.

Early Japan Feudalism
During the 600s, Japan used China as a model of knowledge for their country. Nobels and officials would be sent to China for "selective borrowing" (Japan selecting the best part of Chinese culture while preserving their own unique identity). Japan created government and writing systems that are similar to the Chinese. During the Heian Period (794-1185), Japan created highy refined culture and arts. Proper etiquette, appearance, and education was very important. This eight minute video is a lectu
