1.204 Computer Algorithms in Systems Engineering (MIT)
This course covers concepts of computation used in analysis of engineering systems. It includes the following topics: data structures, relational database representations of engineering data, algorithms for the solution and optimization of engineering system designs (greedy, dynamic programming, branch and bound, graph algorithms, nonlinear optimization), and introduction to complexity analysis. Object-oriented, efficient implementations of algorithms are emphasized.
Upper Intermediate S4 #24 - There’s No Way I Can Do Any More Japanese Work!
Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! Your friend drops by your office and she chats for a while in Japanese. You know this is not a good thing, since she rarely ever stops by except for when she needs something from you, so you ask her point-blank in Japanese, “What do you need?” She responds in Japanese, [...]
Students become familiar with the Engineering Design Process as they design and build prototypes for a chair. The miniature chair must be sturdy and functional enough to hold a wooden, hinged artist model or floppy stuffed animal.
Solid Waste Takes Over
In this lesson, students explore solid waste and its effects on the environment. They will collect classroom trash for analysis and build model landfills in order to understand the process and impact of solid waste management. Students will understand the role of engineers in solid waste management.
Health Education Course
The United Nations Cyber Schoolbus tells us about essential issues surrounding health.
Importance of statistics
This video segment adapted from NOVA explains the difference between weather and climate and features groundbreaking analysis revealing that Earth's climate has changed much faster than previously believed.
Ike and Little Rock
This video segment, adapted from American Experience: "Ike", profiles the president's controversial response to the Little Rock school desegregation crisis in 1957.
Image Composite Explorer
The Image Composite Explorer is designed to be an easy first step into the realm of Earth system science, image processing, data analysis, and satellite remote sensing via your Web browser. Click to read About ICE and the rationale for its design; for an in-depth tutorial, read the ICE Users Guide; or jump right in to the Channel Islands example if you prefer to learn using a hands-on approach. A Teacher’s Guide is available for educators who wish to use ICE in their classrooms.
PC Software for NMR, IR
This web site allows readers to download a variety of PC-based NMR simulation programs. NMRSM is for the calculation of spin-spin coupling patterns, the program FTNMR Simulator simulates the operation of a high field spectrometer and the program FIDMAKER allows the user to create FID\'s for subsequent analysis by students. Although these simulation programs are fairly limited in their scope, they will be useful for faculty at institutions that do not have access to a modern Fourier transform N
Organic Structure Elucidation Workbook
This web site contains 64 structure elucidation problems for the qualitative analysis of organic compounds. For each problem the empirical formula, molecular weight, 500 MHz proton and 125 MHz carbon NMR spectra, IR and mass spectral data are presented. The problems are categorized as easy, moderate or difficult. Students in introductory Organic Chemistry who want practice identifying unknown compounds should find this site useful. Instructors looking for exam or classroom problems for students
Statistics for Chemists: Exercises
This website contains a group of exercises that allow students to practice basic statistical calculations for descriptive statistics, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, regression and experimental design. The exercises are interactive and provide feedback for students who submit wrong answers.
Student Assessment of Learning Gains
This University of Wisconsin site is designed for instructors of all disciplines who would like feedback from their students about how the course elements are helping their students to learn. This page is a usable link for assessment, collaborative learning and technology in all college science courses by faculty or graduate students, although there is no particular focus on analytical science.
Introduction to Factor Analysis
This site introduces the application of factor analysis to chemical data. The tutorial, which uses data from a UV absorbance experiment, is designed for undergraduate chemistry students.
Molecular Structure and Dynamics by NMR Spectroscopy
This site provides PowerPoint slides for a series of lectures for a graduate-level course in NMR spectroscopy. While the casual student may find it hard to follow everything on the slides without an accompanying lecture, the Power Point files should be very useful for advanced students or educators putting together similar courses. Mathematica documents that allow one to perform matrix algebra and Fourier transforms are also provided.
Learning Module: What Chemists need to know about copyright
This website, developed by ACS Joint Board/Council Committee on Copyrights, provides a learning module for chemists to learn about the legal aspects governing copyright and what constitutes copyright material. It contains a set of five useful resources: (1) an html learning module about copyright for chemists; (2) a set of questions faculty could use to test students\' understanding of copyright; (3) a summary of copyright policy; (4) a pamphlet (pdf file) that could be handed out to a class fo

Assessing the Biological Weapons and Bioterrorism Threat
BIOSECURITY FOR A NEW ERA Lecture Series Biological weapons (BW) have been a significant national security preoccupation for nearly 15 years. The events of September 11 and the anthrax attacks that followed have magnified these concerns by orders of magnitude while shifting the context almost entirely to "bioterrorism." Over the past four years, the federal government has spent nearly $30 billion to counter the anticipated threat. Strangely, these responses took place in the absence of virtuall
