18.022 Calculus of Several Variables (MIT)
This is a variation on 18.02 Multivariable Calculus. It covers the same topics as in 18.02, but with more focus on mathematical concepts.
Students are introduced to our planet's structure and its dynamic system of natural forces through an examination of the natural hazards of earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, tsunamis, floods and tornados, as well as avalanches, fires, hurricanes and thunderstorms. They see how these natural events become disasters when they impact people, and how engineers help to make people safe from them. Students begin by learning about the structure of the Earth; they create clay models showing the Earth'
Bumps and Bruises
Athletes often wear protective gear to keep themselves safe in contact sports. In this spirit, students follow the steps of engineering design process as they design, build and test protective padding for an egg drop. Many of the design considerations surrounding an egg drop are similar to sports equipment design. Watching the transformation of energy from potential to kinetic, observing the impact and working under material constraints gives students a chance to experience some of the challenge

Dr. Byron Gates: Controlling the Surfaces of Matter
SFU Canada Research Chairs Seminar Series: "Controlling the Surfaces of Matter" Byron Gates Canada Research Chair in Surface Chemistry, Department of Chemistry Mar 24, 2011 We aim to understand the scale to which the surface chemistry of materials can be uniformly manipulated and the robustness of these alterations. Of particular importance is our ability to alter the surface chemistry of materials on the nanoscale. Developments in nanotechnology have opened the doors to our ability to manip
