"Communication System Design, Spring 2006"
" This course presents a top-down approach to communications system design. The course will cover communication theory, algorithms and implementation architectures for essential blocks in modern physical-layer communication systems (coders and decoders, filters, multi-tone modulation, synchronization sub-systems). The course is hands-on, with a project component serving as a vehicle for study of different communication techniques, architectures and implementations. This year, the project is focu
"Laboratory in Visual Cognition, Fall 2009"
" 9.63 teaches principles of experimental methods in human perception and cognition, including design and statistical analysis. The course combines lectures and hands-on experimental exercises and requires an independent experimental project. Some experience in programming is desirable. To foster improved writing and presentation skills in conducting and critiquing research in cognitive science, students are required to provide reports and give oral presentations of three team experiments. A fou

Carbon Emission Capstone
There are two ways to reduce net emissions of carbon dioxide: limit how much carbon dioxide is emitted into the atmosphere as we burn fossil fuels, or increase the rate at which it is absorbed. In this lesson, discussion topics include the Kyoto Protocol.
Scaling Galileo's Solar System - Times
In this activity students calculate how long it takes for planets and moons to complete their orbits, and their velocity, in a scale model solar system. The orbit of Saturn is scaled so it takes one day to circle around campus. Students recreate spreadsheets, shown in a Powerpoint module, with formulas that answer various pieces of the overall question. This module is the third in a series of four on the Galilean Solar System, and was designed for an undergraduate class where students are asked
Texas Slavery Project
Centered on a database of slave and slaveholder populations in Texas during the Republic era (1837-45), the Texas Slavery Project offers a window into the role slavery played in the development of Texas in the years before the region became part of the United States. Dynamic interactive maps show the changing flows of enslaved and slaveholder populations in Texas over time. The population database search engine allows users to discover the growth of slave and slaveholder populations in the reg
