CÁLCULO NUMÉRICO (2009)
El Cálculo Numérico es una asignatura troncal de cuarto cuatrimestre, que se imparte cuando ya lo han hecho el resto de asignaturas básicas de Matemáticas de la titulación. En ella se describen, desarrollan y programan diferentes técnicas numéricas, como una extensión natural de las analizadas en la asignatura de Laboratorio de Matemáticas. Numerosos problemas en distintas áreas de las Matemáticas, no tienen una solución analítica cerrada. Tal es el caso de determinadas ecuaciones
COMPUTADORES Y PROGRAMACIÓN (2008)
Los computadores son usados ampliamente en la aeronautica, tanto en los sistemas que controlan el vuelo de los aeronaves (aviónica), como en los sistemas auxiliares que los controlan (sistemas de control de tráfico aéreo, guiado, etc.). Además, los ordenadores se usan en la ingeniería para desarrollar y hacer pruebas de modelos antes de realizar los primeros prototipos reales, Por lo tanto es básico conocer el funcionamiento de los computadores y tener unas nociones básicas de programaci

Teachers' attitudes to and beliefs about web-based collaborative learning environments in the contex
This paper reports the conceptions of teachers from four European countries of the Innovative Technologies for Collaborative Learning project tools for collaborative learning. Fifty six teachers were interviewed about different aspects of the CLE (Webbased Collaborative Learning Environment) implementations and about their own evaluations of the CLE implementations in their classrooms. Their answers were analysed using categories based on a model from cultural-historical activity theory (Engestr
What Grasses Grow Best with the Least Water?
Which turfgrasses grow and survive best with the least amount of water? That's the focus of a study, designed to save water, being conducted by the UMass Amhers Center for Agriculture. Using its new rainout shelter, UMass researchers are studying drought tolerance that will help with the management of golf, recreational turf and lawn turf.
UMass Students Explore Tropical Rain Forest
Betsy Dumont, a mammal expert in the biology department at UMass Amherst, is one of six faculty who regularly lead students in a tropical field biology course in the Commonwealth Honors College every Spring Break. They study in Costa Rica's lowland coastal rain forest and spend two days of snorkeling on pristine coral reefs off the coast of Panama. The trip gives students a feel for what it is really like to do a field project, from design to data collection through trouble-shooting and on to an

War Is "a Blessing, Not a Curse": The Case for Why We Must Fight
In 1917, voices were raised outside Congress on both sides of the issue of American involvement in the European war. Shortly before President Woodrow Wilson's call for war on April 2, 1917, the editors of a conservative magazine, the North American Review , laid out the basic arguments for U.S. participation. Fundamentally, they saw the war as a struggle between democracy and barbarism. Similar statements and speeches--as well as more coercive measures--gradually captured the public discourse.
This course consists of web contents that will enable students to understand the elementary course on college mathematics using HTML and flash in a pleasant and easy fashion.

CEO view: Fadi Ghandour of Aramex
The Aramex story – that of a small player in the Middle East rising to compete against the biggest companies in the global transportation and logistics market – has been heralded by Thomas L. Friedman in his book The World is Flat as a model for companies benefiting from the ‘flattening’ of the world through globalisation – the levelling of the economic field and the destruction of barriers to entry, opening the door wide for individuals or companies anywhere in the world to collaborat
Galileo's Improvements to the Telescope
Contrary to what many people think, Galileo did not invent the telescope. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, the Italian physicist and mathematician improves on an existing spyglass design to create a more powerful one -- a refracting telescope that he then used to study the night sky.
