ECE 320 Spring 2004
Development of real-time digital signal processing (DSP) systems using a DSP microprocessor; several structured laboratory exercises, such as sampling and digital filtering, followed by an extensive DSP project of the student's choice.
DSP Laboratory with TI TMS320C54x (International Demo)
This course is a demonstration of using the Connexions project to host foreign language content in the context of a DSP lab course. It borrows material from Doug Jones' ECE320 course at UIUC and provides translations of some of the material in the Japanese, Chinese and Thai languages.
Equilibria and the solution of linear and linear least squares problems. Dynamical systems and the eigenvalue problem with the Jordan form and Laplace transform via complex integration.
High-Speed and Embedded Systems Design (Under Construction)
This course involves the specification, design, and implementation of high-speed DSP and microcontroller-based systems, taking into account cost constraints, available technology, and other factors. In this course, the students will learn about the following topics: advanced C and assembly programming for embedded systems, high-speed PCB design theory, hardware/software interfacing, and approaches to designing practical hardware systems. A major software/hardware design project will be completed
Genefinding - the basic structure of the course attempts to answer the following questions: 1) What is genefinding? 2) Why do we care? 3) Why is it difficult? What is the challenge? 4) What's being done currently? What are the current methods? 5) How are we doing? Emphasis is placed heavily on computational methods for genefinding with discussion as to how the compliment experimental gene finding methods.
Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering I
The course focuses on the creation, manipulation, transmission, and reception of information by electronic means. Elementary signal theory; time- and frequency-domain analysis; Sampling Theorem. Digital information theory; digital transmission of analog signals; error-correcting codes. A complete course with over 90 modules.
Skeletal System 3 from the course General Human Anatomy
General Human Anatomy - Fall 2006. The functional anatomy of the human body as revealed by gross and microscopic examination.
Oodles of ordinals
Children will integrate Math, Social Studies, Physical Education, Art, and Music to discover, explore, practice and enjoy the ordinal numbers "first" through "tenth."
This lesson will introduce students to the concept of irony. Verbal, situational, and dramatic irony will be defined, but the focus of the lesson is situational irony. This lesson can be used prior to teaching longer, more complex short stories that contain situational irony. This lesson is modified for an English Language Learner (ELL) who reads at the Intermediate Low (IL) level.
In this interactive activity from NOVA Online, you can see the four primary types of earthquakes produced by volcanoes and the signals each produces on a seismometer.
In this oral history from the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Joe Dickson recalls student activism at Miles College.
How Do Avalanches Form?
In this video segment adapted from NOVA, dramatic footage of avalanches and animations of ice crystals illustrate how a layer of weakly-bonded snow can contribute to a devastating avalanche.
Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2: A Record of Climate Change
Using images and graphs, this interactive resource illustrates scientists' efforts to study Earth's climatic history for the last 250,000 years by drilling into the Greenland Ice Sheet and examining ice cores. Adapted from the Wright Center for Science Education, Tufts University.
I Do Not Know What It Is that I Am Like
'I Do Not Know What It Is that I Am Like' juxtaposes images of animals, both wild and domestic, and natural environments with human activity as it takes place in an apartment, and during a fire walking ceremony in Fiji. Documentary-style footage is combined with staged events. Despite the piece's lack of a traditional narrative, it bears some relationship to nature works. The segment features material from 'Il Corpo Scuro (The dark body)' animals and natural environments are seen up close and at
This site provides a diverse group of visualizations depicting sedimentation models. Visualizations range from photos and still image sequences to animations, and represent simple conceptual models, output from computer simulations, and physical experimental models. Visual resources can be integrated into lectures, labs, classes, or other activities about sedimentation and stratigraphy.
Weather Front Animations
This site features GIF and Flash animations that illustrate wave cyclone formation and the formation and characteristics of warm, cold, stationary, and occluded fronts. The animations can be paused and rewound to stress important points. These resources are suitable for use in lectures, labs, or other teaching activities.
The Campaign for Vicksburg, 1863
This guide was written to help you bring to life the human struggle that was endured in the Campaign for Vicksburg. The guide can help you bring a complex subject to your students. You and your students will probably come up with new and different ways to see the Park. We hope this guide will give you a few new tools to teach and enlighten your class. After all, the Campaign for Vicksburg was more than generals and maps, it was the common soldier, sailor and civilian who witnessed a lifetime in
Pipestone, Minnesota -- National Register of Historic Places Travel Itinerary
features an area in the southwest corner of Minnesota that reflects a rich history of American Indian quarrying, prosperity brought by the railroad and mining enterprises, and a distinctive natural landscape. This National Register of Historic Places Travel itinerary highlights 30 historic places, including buildings constructed with beautiful local red stone and land still sacred to American Indians.
Mammoth Cave: Its Explorers, Miners, Archeologists, and Visitors
explores a cave in southwestern Kentucky that, with more than 345 miles of explored passageways, is the longest cave in the world.
Oral Presentation Skills Using Family Stories
The fourth lesson in the Family, History and Memory module focuses on developing students' presentation skills. It offers students detailed guidelines on how to deliver a good presentation and invites them to practice the skills using their family stories. Peer group evaluation is included in this class. The lessons can be delivered as a module or as individual units.
