Conceptual Physics
This is a nonmathematical physics textbook, designed so that it can be used either for a semester-length course of the type popularized by Hewitt, or for a shorter course of 8 or 10 weeks. This book is essentially a rewritten version of Discover Physics. The rewrite is intended to do two things: (1) make the book less closely tied to a particular method of teaching, and (2) make it possible to use the book in shorter courses (such as Fullerton College's Physical Science 103A) with the omission o

An investigation of using the computer for reading and writing in the English classroom in secondary
This paper presents an investigation of using the computer in English teaching at the secondary school in the UK, particularly in respect of reading and writing skills. Many studies suggest that the computer brings significant possibilities for promoting the teaching of reading and writing in the English classroom. The computer can enhance the development of reading and writing. This study adopted interviews as research technique and some student teachers in a university and some English teacher

Mixing Microworld and Cas Features in Building Computer Systems that Help Students Learn Algebra
We present the design principles for a new kind of computer system that helps students learn algebra. The fundamental idea is to have a system based on the microworld paradigm that allows students to make their own calculations, as they do with paper and pencil, without being obliged to use commands, and to verify the correctness of these calculations. This requires an advanced editor for algebraic expressions, an editor for algebraic reasoning and an algorithm that calculates the equivalence of

Advanced Solid State Physics
This course is about the electronic properties of materials and contains lectures about scattering, transport in metals, phonons and superconductivity. Study Goals: The goal of the course is twofold: to present modern concepts of the electronic properties of the materials, and to develop he ability to read (and understand) scientific papers. The first goal will be achieved through a series of lectures and sets of exercises. A considerable attention is devoted to superconductivity, not only becau

Why is Nanotechnology Multidisciplinary? A perspective of one EE
The field of nano-science and nano-technology covers a broad area of expertise. Classical fields of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical/Mechanical/Chemical Engineering all are involved in the "new" field f nano. Research and development in that area is by its very nature multi-disciplinary, since I bridge a large length scale from atoms to systems and timescales from femto seconds to eternity. This presentation will give a personal perspective of an electrical engineer in the area o
