In Search of Cosmic Rays
These interactive lessons teach about Cosmic Rays by emphasizing the mystery that Cosmic Rays presented to early scientists. The scientific inquiries and investigations that Cosmic Rays prompted are interesting and important to understanding the way science works. Cosmic Rays are now being studied at research sites around the world. Much has been learned from early experiments and even more is being discovered with modern experiments, but many questions have yet to be answered.
How Computers Work
Includes the basics of digital logical design, computer organization and architecture including assembly language, processor design, memory hierarchies and pipelining. Students examine the detailed construction of a very simple computer. Problem sets use Beta-Sim, a RISC simulator written by Mike Wessler. A higher level view of a modern RISC architecture is studied, using the Patterson and Hennessey introductory text, from both the programmer's point of view and the hardware designer's point of
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.
A Lab on Population Genetics and Evolution: A physical Model and Computer Simulation
This laboratory exercise features a physical and computer simulation of Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
Greatness and Limits of the West: reflections on an uncompleted project
A lecture to mark the intellectual legacy of Ralf Dahrendorf, director of LSE from 1974 to 1984, and one of Europe's most eminent sociologists and public servants of the post-War period. Lord Dahrendorf passed away in June 2009. Heinrich August Winkler is an internationally acclaimed scholar and one of the most distinguished historians of modern Germany.
The exhibition was based around the theme of free will and had an international group of artists addressing this topic using a variety of media. The site was an old bunker in the former East Berlin underneath an old warehouse that had previously been used to produce tanks during the Second World War. “Daylight Piece” is a response to the space using 14 daylight-balanced fluorescent tubes strategically placed in an abandoned stairwell to give the appearance that the stairs are leading out

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.
