Basic Math - Number Patterns
Studying number patterns is important for two reasons. First, they help one better understand the concepts of arithmetic and provide a basis for understanding the concepts of more complex mathematics (algebra, trigonometry, calculus). Second, pattern recognition is a useful problem-solving skill, both in mathematics and in real-world situations. Patterns involving odd and even numbers are investigated. Patterns in multiples of certain numbers lead to an understanding of divisibility rules. Seque

Numerical Methods Applied to Chemical Engineering, Fall 2001
Numerical methods for solving problems arising in heat and mass transfer, fluid mechanics, chemical reaction engineering, and molecular simulation. Topics: numerical linear algebra, solution of nonlinear algebraic equations and ordinary differential equations, solution of partial differential equations (e.g. Navier-Stokes), numerical methods in molecular simulation (dynamics, geometry optimization). All methods are presented within the context of chemical engineering problems. Familiarity with s

CSET Science Subtest II: Heat Transfer and Thermodynamics
The University of California, Irvine Extension, supported by generous grants from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The Boeing Company, is developing online courses to prepare science and mathematics teachers for the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET). This module is part of the preparation for CSET Science Subtest II.
This module includes the following chemistry topics:
Statistical Reasoning II
Statistical Reasoning in Public Health II provides an introduction to selected important topics in biostatistical concepts and reasoning through lectures, exercises, and bulletin board discussions.
Methods in Biostatistics II
Presents fundamental concepts in applied probability, exploratory data analysis, and statistical inference, focusing on probability and analysis of one and two samples.
A Didactic-based Model of Scenarios for Designing an Adaptive and Context-Aware Learning System
Nowadays, technology-enhanced learning systems must have the ability to take into account the context and to allow dynamic adaptation to different learners based on substantial advances in pedagogical theories and knowledge models. The main issue is to design a generic scenario which can deal with the broadest range of learning situations. From a generic scenario, the learning system will compute on the fly a particular scenario dedicated to the current learner and its learning situation. The ma
Analyzing Statistics S.S. Europe and Russia
Students will gather statistical information on countries in Europe and Russia from almanacs. The information will be recorded in a chart. Students will then take the information and make line or bar graphs. Students will analyze the information by answering higher level thinking questions.
Statistics Online Computational Resource for Education and Research
The goals of the Statistics Online Computational Resource (www.SOCR.ucla.edu) are to design, validate and freely disseminate knowledge. Specifically, SOCR provides portable online aids for probability and statistics education, technology based instruction and statistical computing. SOCR tools and resources include a repository of interactive applets, computational and graphing tools, instructional and course materials. The core SOCR educational and computational components include: Distribution
Supporting Teachers Intervention in Collaborative Knowledge Building
In the context of distributed collaborative learning, the teacher's role is different from traditional teacher-centered environments, they are coordinators/facilitators, guides, and co-learners. They monitor the collaboration activities within a group, detect problems and intervene in the collaboration to give advice and learn alongside students at the same time. We have designed an Assistant to support teachers intervention in collaborative knowledge building. The Assistant monitors the collabo
Statistical Methods in Biomedical Imaging
This resource contains the complete materials (syllabus, class notes, assignments, web-based software analysis and visualization tools) for a semester-long upper-division or graduate course on mathematical modeling, statistical analysis and visualization of biomedical imaging data.
Artificial Intelligence: Natural Language Processing
This course is designed to introduce students to the fundamental concepts and ideas in natural language processing (NLP), and to get them up to speed with current research in the area. It develops an in-depth understanding of both the algorithms available for the processing of linguistic information and the underlying computational properties of natural languages. Wordlevel, syntactic, and semantic processing from both a linguistic and an algorithmic perspective are considered. The focus is on m
Examining the Burdens of Gendered Racism: Implications for Pregnancy Outcomes Among College-Educated
Objectives: As investigators increasingly identify racism as a risk factor for poor health outcomes (with implications for adverse birth outcomes), research efforts must explore individual experiences with and responses to racism. In this study, our aim was to determine how African American college-educated women experience racism that is linked to their identities and roles as African American women (gendered racism). Methods: Four hundred seventy-four (474) African American women collaborate
Formulas for functions of two variables
This website features a chart of functions with two variables and the equations for their standard deviation. It is from the Engineering Statistics handbook whose goal is to help scientists and engineers incorporate statistical methods in their work as efficiently as possible. A link to tools and aids for using the handbook is provided.
Atmospheric Vertical Structure and the First Law of Thermodynamics
This sequential set of in-class and homework problems concerns applications of the First Law of Thermodynamics. In the homework, students are first asked to compute and plot potential temperatures of specified adiabats. In a second assignment, the potential temperature from an observed sounding is computed and plotted to develop a framework for understanding the stratification of the atmosphere. These activities are intended to help students discover the importance and utility of conservation pr
