This course provides a good overall understanding of how to manage projects. The course includes an overview of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) developed by the Project Management Institute. The course also includes a quick outline on Earned Value Management and touches on a few advanced topics such as Enterprise Architecture. Level: Introduction - No prior knowledge is required; however some business experience will help in understanding some of the concepts. Recommended for 2.
Yet Another Calculus Text
I intend this book to be, firstly, a introduction to calculus based on the hyperreal number system. In other words, I will use infinitesimal and infinite numbers freely. Just as most beginning calculus books provide no logical justification for the real number system, I will provide none for the hyperreals. The reader interested in questions of foundations should consult books such as Abraham Robinson's Non-standard Analysis or Robert Goldblatt's Lectures on the Hyperreals. Secondly, I have aime
Homework for Circuit Simulation: ECE 255
This collection of homeworks is used in ECE 255 "Introduction to Electronic Analysis and Design" (Purdue University). Students do their work, or sometimes check their work, by using the Spice 3F4 simulator on nanoHUB.org.
Imagining the City: Memories and cultures in Cape Town
The overriding strength of this book is that it places people, ordinary people at the centre of memory at the centre of historical and contemporary experience and thus at the centre of re-imagining and owning the city of Cape Town It is as they speak what they choose to say what they choose to remain silent about that we become aware of the possibilities of the city if it really did embrace all its people in all of their diversity. From the Foreword by Mike van Graan playwright and arts activist
Epidemiological Thinking For Non-Specialists, Fall 2007
Introduction to methods and problems in research and applications where quantitative data is analyzed to reconstruct possible pathways of development of behaviors and diseases. Special attention given to social inequalities, changes over the life course, heterogeneous pathways, and controversies with implications for policy and practice. Case studies and course projects are shaped to accommodate students with interests in fields related to health, gerontology, education, psychology, sociology, a
Introduction to Applied Statistics, Summer 2003
This course provides graduate students in the sciences with an intensive introduction to applied statistics. Topics include descriptive statistics, probability, non-parametric methods, estimation methods, hypothesis testing, correlation and linear regression, simulation, and robustness considerations. Calculations will be done using handheld calculators and the Minitab Statistical Computer Software.
Universe of Music, Fall 2007
An introduction to the infinite universe of music from its origins to the present, this course investigates the role of instruments, culture, myth and science in the evolution of music. Illustrations through the medium of the World Wide Web present the concept of music as both communication of ideas and expression of feelings in diverse musical traditions of the world.
Introduction to Nanoscale Science: Surface Area to Volume Ratio Module
Many intriguing phenomena observed in the "nanoworld" can be attributed to the increase in the surface to volume ratio ( SVR ) at the nanoscale. Understanding the surface area effects to volume changes is thus crucial to the understanding of nanoscale phenomena and nanotechnology applications. As an introduction to the nanoworld, the major goals of this module are to (1) give students a feel for just how small the nanoscale is, (2) give students practice in mathematically communicating nanoscale

18.781 Theory of Numbers (MIT)
This course provides an elementary introduction to number theory with no algebraic prerequisites. Topics include primes, congruences, quadratic reciprocity, diophantine equations, irrational numbers, continued fractions and elliptic curves.
2.1 The primary structure of nucleic acids We now know the detail of the order of individual bases, i.e. the genome sequence, of many of the organisms listed in Table 1. In Section 2 we will focus on the structures of nucleic acids within the cell, and we will start this discussion by outlining some of the general principles that apply to all nucleic acid structures.

This visual aid forms part of the "Mobile Phone Case Study" topic in the Introduction to OO Programming in Java module.
The Great Magnet, the Earth
This site provides a non-mathematical introduction to the magnetism of the Earth, the Sun, the planets and their environments, following a historical thread. In 1600, four hundred years ago William Gilbert, later physician to Queen Elizabeth I of England, published his great study of magnetism, "De Magnete"--"On the Magnet". It gave the first rational explanation to the mysterious ability of the compass needle to point north-south: the Earth itself was magnetic. "De Magnete" opened the era of mo
New SMU legal center for victims of crimes against women
Ray L. and Nancy Ann Hunter Hunt have committed $5 million to provide a new resource for legal assistance to the North Texas community and opportunities for SMU law students to gain practical experience. The gift will create the JUDGE ELMO B. HUNTER LEGAL CENTER for Victims of Crimes Against Women, named in honor of Mrs. Hunt's father. The new legal center at SMU's Dedman School of Law will provide services for the victims of domestic violence, sex trafficking and other crimes against women. Re
