Why Polar Bears Don't Eat Penguins (Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears Podcast Episode 2)
Dr. Ross MacPhee, curator and researcher at the American Museum of Natural History discusses mammals in this episode. Dr. MacPhee provides content background on the mammals, both past and present of the polar regions, and defines some basic ideas on Arctic mammals, as well as current means of studying mammals in the field.
"Environmental Engineering Masters of Engineering Project, Fall 2007"
"This class is one of the core requirements for the Environmental Masters of Engineering program, in conjunction with 1.133 Masters of Engineering Concepts of Engineering Practice. It is designed to teach about environmental engineering through the use of case studies, computer software tools, and seminars from industrial experts. Case studies provide the basis for group projects as well as individual theses. Recent 1.782 projects include the MMR Superfund site on Cape Cod, appropriate wastewate
Reading proficiency, culture: Wo in Europe spricht man Deutsch?
At the completion of this lesson you will have learned something about the countries in Europe where German is the official language. You will practice your reading skills and vocabulary on this topic.
In this exercise you will name triangles.
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.
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.
This is an interactive tutorial for the CINAHL database in the EBSCO format.
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.
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 […]
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.

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.
