How does a Bicycle work ? Learn how gears are used to speed up and increase the force needed to climb hills. Finish this lesson by using your own bicycle to calculate gear ratios.
Diabetes; Project Overview: a case study
Morgan has just found out that she has diabetes. Do you know anyone who has diabetes? What do you know about diabetes? What would you do if you found out that you had diabetes? We will explore all of these questions in this activity.
Normal Abdominal CT
Set of normal abdominal CT images with various important anatomic structures outlined, for cine viewing to gain a 3D view of the structure and its relationship to adjacent organs.
A Quantitative Study of Litter and Soil Invertebrates Utilizing the Berlese Funnel
This exercise is meant to familiarize students with invertebrates that inhabit litter and soil and to help them appreciate the importance of these organisms in the environment.
A Laboratory Introduction to DNA Restriction Analysis
This workshop serves as an introduction to laboratory exercises in molecular biology.
Digital Library Object - From theory to practice: the Powell doctrine.
Link To Full Record
Conducting Historical Research: The Case of "Oriental Cairo"
This course guides you through a variety of virtual research projects centered on Douglas Sladen's "Oriental Cairo: City of the 'Arabian Nights'" (1911). It is an introduction to some standard research techniques used by historians as well to using library resources.
Signals and Systems
This course deals with signals, systems, and transforms, from their theoretical mathematical foundations to practical implementation in circuits and computer algorithms. At the conclusion of ELEC 301, you should have a deep understanding of the mathematics and practical issues of signals in continuous and discrete time, linear time invariant systems, convolution, and Fourier transforms.
Naive Room Response Deconvolution
ELEC 301 project by William Howison, Chris Lamontagne, Bryce Luna, and David Newell. Given the output of a system and the system characteristics we can determine the input. We will determine the system characteristics of two rooms by playing an (approximate) impulse and recording the impulse response, and then we will play music into the same rooms and record the output. Using MATLAB we will deconvolve the output with the system response to determine a rough approximation of the input.
Microcontroller and Embedded Systems Laboratory
Basic introduction to microcontroller-based embedded systems development. Includes structured laboratory exercises in the following areas: assembly programming, C language programming, peripheral interfacing, interrupt management, structured programming, task scheduling, simple digital signal processing (DSP), and other related topics. This course assumes no prerequisites and is primarily intended for first and second year engineering students.

Digital Filter Structures and Quantization Error Analysis
Practical implementations of digital filters introduce errors due to finite-precision data and arithmetic. Many different structures, both for FIR and IIR filters, offer different trade-offs between computational complexity, memory use, precision, and error. Approximating the errors as additive noise provides fairly accurate estimates of the resulting quantization noise levels, which can be used both to predict the performance of a chosen implementation and to determine the precision needed to m
Digital Filter Design
An electrical engineering course on digital filter design.
Demo for Dummies
This course is designed for dummies to illustrate how even they can add new knowledge and distribute it world wide.
Control Systems Laboratory
This course introduces students to fundamental control systems theory with emphasis on design and implementation. These labs focus on technical implementation issues of classical control theory in the frequency domain and modern control theory in the state-space. Design and implementation for this course is done using National Instruments LabVIEW software and hardware for control and Educational Control Products (ECP) hardware for the plants.
Connexions Tutorial and Reference (Japanese version)

Computational Sciences Lecture Series at UW-Madison
The goal of the Computational Sciences Lecture Series (CSLS) is to bring together researchers from mathematics (pure and applied), computer science, physics, and engineering to promote cross-fertilization between these fields and to establish computational science as an active research discipline at UW-Madison. The CSLS will consist of several half-day meetings during each year, each meeting consisting of three lectures by distinguished researchers, grouped around a common theme.
A brief tutorial on CNXML - an XML language by Connexions
Bios 533 Bioinformatics
Computer laboratory modules for the Introduction to Bioinformatics course. This course is designed for the beginning graduate student or advanced undergraduate in the biosciences. The goal is to introduce the student to various biologically relevant databases, methods to effectively search the databases, and an overall view of the various aspects of computational biology.
Bioinformatics- UH course
This is an introduction to the bioinformatics website provided by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). It includes an overview of the basic mission of NCBI and an introduction to the most commonly used biological databases available on the website and the tools for viewing and analyzing the data.
