3.003 Principles of Engineering Practice (MIT)
This class introduces students to the interdisciplinary nature of 21st-century engineering projects with three threads of learning: a technical toolkit, a social science toolkit, and a methodology for problem-based learning. Students encounter the social, political, economic, and technological challenges of engineering practice by participating in real engineering projects with faculty and industry; this semester's major project focuses on the engineering and economics of solar cells.

A Computer Process for Investigating Wind Power Production in Building Integrated Wind Turbines
This paper reports on the computer process to be used in an ongoing research to investigate the effect of architectural parameters of tall buildings on the incorporation of wind turbines. The process combines a generative modeling tool (Grasshopper) and a performance based CFD tool (Virtualwind). The process is demonstrated on three typical tall building plan configurations. The wind speed was simulated at certain locations to demonstrate the ability of tall buildings to enhance the wind speed a

A Performance-Based Design Approach for Early Tall Building Form Development
This paper presents a methodological interactive design approach within which structure is integrated into tall building form development. The approach establishes a synergy between generative and analytical tools to allow for parallel interaction of the formal and structural design considerations during the conceptual design phase. An integration of the associative modeling system, Grasshopper, and the structural analysis tool, ETABS was established, and a bi-directional feedback link between t

Derecho Constitucional III (2010)
En el origen histórico del surgimiento del Constitucionalismo y el Derecho Constitucional encontramos, como idea basilar, la protección de un conjunto de derechos de la persona que le aseguren un ámbito propio de autonomía y autodecisión libre de interferencias por parte del Estado. Esa finalidad histórica primera del Derecho Constitucional, íntimamente vinculada a la idea de libertad, todavía hoy perdura como su característica esencial. El pensamiento constitucionalista reposaba sobre

Absolute Value Equations
Absolute Value Equations
This video explains how solving for a variable in absolute value equations follows different rules than when we solve multi-step equations. When solving absolute value equations, most of the time we get more than one possible solution. Using absolute value equations, we are able to solve more complex concepts such as absolute values with inequalities, and graphs of absolute value inequalities with two variables. (2:21)

How Your Brain Understands What Your Ear Hears
This activity helps students learn how audio and visual cues can help communication, how loudness is measured, how changes in the hearing pathway may affect hearing, and how to prevent hearing loss. Animations (under student activities) show an ear hearing the Gettysburg Address in 5 languages, a graphic display of pitch and volume, and how sounds are converted into electrical impulses and sent to the brain.
