Poverty and Young Adults
This exercise focuses on the effects of various social characteristics on poverty. It is based on the sociological assumption that patterns exist in relation to poverty in society.
Investigating Differences in Earnings Based on Gender
Students will use cross-tabulations and graphs to explore the differences in earnings based on gender. In doing so, they will build basic data analysis skills like forming hypotheses and using control variables.
Income Inequality In the United States
For this assignment we will explore the impact of gender and race on the earnings of full-time workers in 2000. The purpose of this assignment is to introduce you to some basic data analysis software (WebCHIP), to develop some familiarity with working with data from the Current Population Survey, and to apply what you have learned in the course to try to explain differences in earnings based on race and gender.
Diversity in Family and Household Patterns
This module is designed to illustrate differences in family and household composition patterns for different groups based on race/ethnicity and social class. It also serves as a review of key methodological concepts introduced in the first part of the course.
Structured Electronic Design
This course focuses on a systematic approach to the design of analog electronic circuits. The methodology presented in the course is based on the concepts of hierarchy, orthogonality and efficient modeling. It is applied to the design of negative-feedback amplifiers. It is shown that aspects such as ideal transfer; noise performance, distortion and bandwidth can be optimized independently. A systematic approach to biasing completes the discussion. Lectures are interactive and combined with weekl
Analog Integrated Circuit Design
An introductory course in analog circuit synthesis for microelectronic designers. Topics include: Review of analog design basics; linear and non-linear analog building blocks: harmonic oscillators, (static and dynamic) translinear circuits, wideband amplifiers, filters; physical layout for robust analog circuits; design of voltage sources ranging from simple voltage dividers to high-performance bandgaps, and current source implementations from a single resistor to high-quality references based o
Offshore Wind Farm Design
This course makes students familiar with the design of offshore wind farms in general and focuses on the foundation design in particular. The course is based on actual cases of real offshore wind farms that have been built recently or will be built in the near future.
Civil Engineering in Developing Countries
Based on working on exercises on project decision making and planning, the specific context of working abroad in general and in developing countries in particular is illustrated, with regard to socio-cultural aspects, planning and financing of projects, roles of (consulting) engineers and contractors, local materials, techniques and knowledge and environmental issues.
Simple Nature: An Introduction to Physics for Engineering and Physical Science Students
Simple Nature is a physics textbook intended for students in a three-semester introductory calculus-based course.
Statistics for Laboratory Scientists II
This course introduces the basic concepts and methods of statistics with applications in the experimental biological sciences. Demonstrates methods of exploring, organizing, and presenting data, and introduces the fundamentals of probability. Presents the foundations of statistical inference, including the concepts of parameters and estimates and the use of the likelihood function, confidence intervals, and hypothesis tests. Topics include experimental design, linear regression, the analysis of
Health Across the Life Span: Frameworks,Contexts,and Measurements
Introduces and examines the basic principles which guide growth and development and the health of individuals across the lifespan, from the prenatal period through senescence. Presents methodological, conceptual and substantive issues necessary for understanding and evaluating empirically based information about growth, development and health at different stages of life and from different academic perspectives. Course covers several themes, including contributions of biological and environmental
Ethics of Human Subject Research
Ethics of Human Subject Research (2 credits) is offered by the Department of Health Policy and Management and the Distance Education Division, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and The Phoebe R. Berman Bioethics Institute, Johns Hopkins University. The course introduces students to the ethics of human subject research. Ethical theory and principles are introduced, followed by a brief history of research ethics. Topics covered in lectures and moderated discussions include informed c
Ethical Issues in Public Health
Lectures and small group discussions focus on ethical theory and current ethical issues in public health and health policy, including resource allocation, the use of summary measures of health, the right to health care, and conflicts between autonomy and health promotion efforts. Student evaluation based on class participation, a group project, and a paper evaluating ethical issues in the student's area of public health specialization.
How would conventional accounting change?
Dr Mike Lucas assesses the changes to conventional accounting methods, and management teaching, that would be needed to establish a new business model based on Buddhist economics.
