System Identification and Parameter Estimation
This course is about non-parametric system identification based on estimators of spectral densities and its application to open-loop and closed-loop systems. Furthermore parameter estimation for linear and non-linear systems playes an important role. At the end of the course, a choice can be made out of three final assignments, for which recorded signals are available. The available demonstration programs have to be adapted in order to estimate proper transfer functions and model parameters. St
Intelligent User Experience Engineering
The course Intelligent User eXperience Engineering (IUXE) is given for the master programme 'Media and Knowledge Engineering' and for students from other master programmes. The aim is to achieve an understanding and practical experience of key principles, methods and theories in the area of intelligent user experience engineering. Study Goals: Knowledge of a basic, coherent approach for developing software systems in such a way that the systems' users can accomplish their goals effectively and e
Wildlife Management Activity Guide for Teachers
Whether your school has a 40 acre school forest or a 40 square foot school yard lawn, we urge you to get your students involved in some hands-on wildlife management. It is a relevant real world issue that will also expose them to disciplines other than science as they learn all the complexities of land management. A few teachers are teaching about a variety of game species and habitats. Others are developing small native plant gardens which provide basic needs for native butterflies and birds. P
Counseling Homosexual Students in the Secondary School Setting: Perceptions of Guidance Counselors
This study addresses counselor attitudes as they relate to addressing the needs of homosexual students in the secondary school setting. Homosexual students are often abused and/or neglected in the school setting based as the result of their perceived sexual orientation. The lack of attention provided to this population has cost districts significant money in punitive damage awards over the past ten years or so. While most view the school counselor as the likely staff member to provide interventi

Looking at Learning ... Again, Part 2: Workshop 2. Mathematics: A Community Focus
With Dr. Marta Civil. As teachers, we often make assumptions about the knowledge children are exposed to at home. Sometimes it seems that we focus on only reading and writing,Dr. Civil contends that we need to look more carefully at the mathematical potential of the home and that it is essential that schools learn to be more flexible and knowledgeable about students home environments. See and hear from Dr. Civil, the teachers she works with, and a long-standing parent mathematics group, and fo
Overlapping worlds: an examination of macroregional archaeology
Archaeologists have long recognized the fact that long distance relationships existed in prehistoric societies. There have been many efforts to develop models for a satisfactory explanation for interactions and social change among groups. World Systems Theory, developed by Immanuel Wallerstein, is one such effort to examine mechanisms of inter-societal relationships and a determination of units of analysis for Pre-Columbian societies. To utilize this theory, archaeologists have made modification

Closing the economic achievement gap: a case study of a successful Kansas secondary school
In spite of efforts at the federal, state, and local levels, the achievement gap has persisted over time. Recent NCLB legislation has brought renewed attention to the achievement gap, forcing schools to address it. Despite the daunting task of mediating the impact of poverty, some schools have made substantial progress in narrowing the achievement gap with low-income students. This qualitative case study of one successful Kansas public secondary school has concluded the caring actions of teacher
Assessing the validity and reliability of a Piagetian-based paper pencil test
Piaget hypothesized that we understand the world through the use of cognitive frameworks. The strengths and limitations of these cognitive frameworks (or levels) both help and hinder the learning process. Comprehending individuals’ cognitive levels is essential for teachers to ensure that their students learn. Piaget developed a series of tasks to assess individuals’ cognitive levels (typically called "clinical interviews" which can only be conducted in a one-to-one fashion). Thus, a paper-a

1.103 Civil Engineering Materials Laboratory (MIT)
This course introduces the concepts, techniques, and devices used to measure engineering properties of materials. There is an emphasis on measurement of load-deformation characteristics and failure modes of both natural and fabricated materials. Weekly experiments include data collection, data analysis, and interpretation and presentation of results.

University of Washington Convocation Honoring the 14th Dalai Lama, Part 2
On April 14, 2008 from 3 to 5 p.m., the University of Washington held a special ceremony with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, who engaged students around the region in a conversation about compassion and civic responsibility. Watch part 2 of this special ceremony rebroadcast.
6.003 Signals and Systems (MIT)
6.003 covers the fundamentals of signal and system analysis, focusing on representations of discrete-time and continuous-time signals (singularity functions, complex exponentials and geometrics, Fourier representations, Laplace and Z transforms, sampling) and representations of linear, time-invariant systems (difference and differential equations, block diagrams, system functions, poles and zeros, convolution, impulse and step responses, frequency responses). Applications are drawn broadly from
Water and Sound Experiment #2
In this water and sound experiment run the rubber hose down past the speaker so that the hose touches the speaker. Leave about 1 or 2 inches of the hose hanging past the bottom of the speaker. Secure the hose to the speaker with tape or whatever works best for you. The goal is to make sure the hose is touching the actual speaker so that when the speaker produces sound (vibrates) it will vibrate the hose. (2:17)
