1.1 Angles, notation and measurement
Geometry is concerned with the various aspects of size, shape and space. In this unit, you will explore the concepts of angles, shapes, symmetry, area and volume through interactive activities.
Come On Over Rover
Have you ever wondered why it takes such a long period of time for NASA to build space exploration equipment? What is involved in manufacturing and building a rover for the Red Planet? During this lesson, students will discover the journey that a Mars rover embarks upon after being designed by engineers and before being prepared for launch. Students will investigate the fabrication techniques, tolerance concepts, assembly and field-testing associated with a Mars exploratory rover.
Remote or close control of students’ knowledge in ARCADE
Assessment of students’ knowledge and instructors’ feedback are among the most important elements of education. This paper describes the Arcade Test System that is used to check and assess students’ knowledge. The Arcade Test System is a dual-purpose online testing environment that gives the instructor an opportunity to control the level of knowledge the students have acquired during taking a particular course delivered by the system. On the one hand, it gives students a way to check their
Students use satellite tracking software available on the Internet to monitor a very large satellite, the International Space Station. Using information from this online resource, students predict and graph the motion of the space station at their location and create a 3-D display of its path through the sky.
An analysis of learner arguments in a collective
This contribution analyses the arguments of students in a learning activity entitled "Argue Graph". This activity is intended to make students understand the relationship between learning theories and design choices in courseware development. The analysis of arguments is centered on the effects of discussion and opinion conflict on the elaboration of arguments. We then use an adaptation of a collective intelligence model to describe the knowledge flow among people and artifacts during the learni
Techniques for Studying Materials: Reciprocal Space
This set of animations shows the relationship between a real lattice and the reciprocal lattice. It introduces the Ewald sphere and the explanation of reciprocal absences. From TLP: Reciprocal Space
Un questionnaire dynamique pour le suivi et l'analyse de l'activité et des productions d'élèves e
L'argumentation des réponses fournies par l'apprenant est-elle riche de sens pour aider à 'établissement d'un diagnostic sur ses connaissances ? L'activité de simulation faite par les élèves peut-elle être un élément déstabilisateur de conceptions ? Une remédiation peut-elle s'opérer par le biais d'un scénario pédagogique? Autant de questions auxquelles nous tenterons de répondre dans cet article.

The restless Universe
The restless Universe introduces you to major achievements and figures in the history of physics, from Copernicus to Einstein and beyond. The route from classical to quantum physics will be laid out for you without recourse to challenging mathematics but with the fundamental features of theories and discoveries described in sufficient detail to whet your appetite for further physics study.
A chapter which describes the mechanisms of signal transduction in a eukaryotic cell, including the activation of G-proteins and kinase cascades (49 figures). The unit is intended as ~10hrs study at level 2/3. It also provides background reading for the experimental investigation 'Investigating intracellular signalling pathways' (http://open.jorum.ac.uk/xmlui/handle/123456789/1581).
A chapter describing protein structure and function, including 53 figures and 7 large tables. It is intended as ~9hrs study time at level 2/3. It also provides background reading for the experimental investigation on SDS-PAGE and Western-blotting (http://open.jorum.ac.uk/xmlui/handle/123456789/1579).
Interpret an engineering drawing
There is not a lot of space on a drawing so symbols and abbreviations are used instead of text. To find the meaning of a symbol or abbreviation, use the Australian Standard AS 1100.101-1992. It defines the general principles for technical drawing and shows tables of symbols and abbreviations and their meanings. Lines on a drawing also must conform to rules, eg, for visible outlines, hidden outlines, and dimension lines.
1.9 Distance between points in three-dimensional Euclidean space
Attempts to answer problems in areas as diverse as science, technology and economics involve solving simultaneous linear equations. In this unit we look at some of the equations that represent points, lines and planes in mathematics. We explore concepts such as Euclidean space, vectors, dot products and conics.
6.241 Dynamic Systems & Control (MIT)
6.241 examines linear, discrete- and continuous-time, and multi-input-output systems in control and related areas. Least squares and matrix perturbation problems are considered. Topics covered include: state-space models, modes, stability, controllability, observability, transfer function matrices, poles and zeros, minimality, internal stability of interconnected systems, feedback compensators, state feedback, optimal regulation, observers, observer-based compensators, measures of control p
TALAT Lecture 2703: Construction and Dynamic Testing of Aluminium Nodes
This lecture demonstrates, how optimum design and fabrication of extruded space frame members joined by welding can lead to significant weight savings, high service life and economy under fatigue loading conditions. Basic knowledge of structural engineering, extrusion design, welding and fatigue; and some familiarity with TALAT lectures no. 1302, 1501, 2200, 2302 and 2400 is assumed.

Experiments as Modus Operandi
Architecture has for too long focused on the presentation of pristine objects and the presentation in drawing form. A critical understanding of the field, however, necessitates a reevaluation of the roles of the process involved in the production of building. Rather than emphasizing surface appearances, an architecture rooted in process aims ultimately at revealing the fundamental and deep structures inherent within the making of architecture. One of the primary tasks of the process is to provok
