"Frameworks and Models in Engineering Systems / Engineering System Design, Spring 2007"
" This class provides an introduction to quantitative models and qualitative frameworks for studying complex engineering systems. Also taught is the art of abstracting a complex system into a model for purposes of analysis and design while dealing with complexity, emergent behavior, stochasticity, non-linearities and the requirements of many stakeholders with divergent objectives. The successful completion of the class requires a semester-long class project that deals with critical contemporary

Parallel lines. (Coordinate Geometry)
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the properties of parallel lines in coordinate geometry. The applet presents two lines, each defined by a pair of draggable points. If they are parallel the slopes are the same and the applet adds the parallel arrow marks to them. The slope of each line is continuously recalculated and the case of vertical lines (with undefined slope) is handled correctly. The is a software 'detent' that snaps the lines to parallel if they are close
