Cardiovascular Interactions: An Interactive Tutorial and Mathematical Model

The maintenance of an adequate cardiac output and systemic arterial blood pressure is a complex process with intricacies that are often difficult to understand. Cardiovascular Interactions is an active learning tool that demonstrates the interactions between the functions of the heart and peripheral circulation. This learning package consists of a Lab Book, a Model, and an Information file. The Lab Book is an interactive tutorial for exploring the relative influences of parameter changes on the cardiovascular system under normal, stressful, or pathophysiological conditions. The learners are guided to predict the direction and relative magnitude of changes of key variables in the cardiovascular system, evaluate the accuracy of their predictions, and describe the cause-and-effect mechanisms involved. Consequences of heart failure, hemorrhage, exercise, and changes in intrathoracic pressure can be explored. The results obtained in the Lab Book are based on a five-compartment mathematical Model, which reflects our current understanding of the basic control of the cardiovascular system. The Model was designed to be complex enough to be realistic, yet not so complex as to be overwhelming. An Information File contains definitions and descriptions of classical physiology about key concepts, including figures, and a detailed description of the Model. Hypertext tags embedded in the Lab Book are used to access the Information File. The Cardiovascular Interactions learning package was designed to run from its CD and so does not need to be installed.

This telecollaborative project is designed to provide students in grades 9-12 with an orientation to systems engineering concepts. Through guided activities students will reverse-engineer a common device that contains both electrical and mechanical components and then create a systems diagram for the deconstructed device. (In this case, the device is a disposable camera.) In partnership with other project participants across the country, learners will reassemble the device and test their reconstruction against quality controls. The project is free with teacher registration. The module includes lesson plans, comprehensive teacher tutorial, reference material, question sets and worksheets, and digital collaboration tools. This resource was developed by the Center for Innovation in Science and Engineering Education (CIESE). Participation is cost-free with teacher registration. <i>Editor's Note: Several components of this activity specifically address a physics curriculum. Disposable flash cameras provide an opportunity for analysis of electric field, charging a capacitor, and energy storage on a capacitor.</i> (less)

This resource for middle school provides 13 complete lessons for teaching about hydropower and conversion of moving water to electrical energy. The unit crosses the curriculum to include physical science, engineering design, earth systems, language arts, social studies and math. As with all NEED educational materials, this resource includes every component required for immediate classroom use: lesson plans, illustrated lab procedures, rubric, pre and post-test assessments, age-appropriate background information, worksheets, graphics for classroom projection, and student guidebooks. Specific physical science objectives revolve around energy flow in systems and the concept that energy is never destroyed, but can be converted from one form to another. Each investigation requires students to first read about the topic in "infobooks" (included in the materials), then make predictions, complete the lab, record data, and write a conclusion. The NEED Project is a national initiative to bring innovative curriculum materials in energy education to K-12 teachers and learners. (less)

This is a curriculum unit for middle school designed to introduce energy as a physics concept in five class sessions. It meets multiple NextGen Science standards through hands-on lab stations. Students investigate energy transfer, storage of energy, the difference between "energy forms" and "energy sources", and trace energy flow through systems. Creative activities include "Happy Sphere, Sad Sphere" for exploring kinetic vs. potential energy; solar panels and glow toys to learn about transformation of radiant energy; "Memory Metal" (nitinol wire) to explore how thermal energy is transformed into motion; and light sticks to investigate chemical energy transformation. Each activity includes Teachers Guide, background information, detailed lesson plans, glossary, and example assessments. A full set of materials can be purchased from NEED or easily obtained through science supply retailers. The NEED Project is a national initiative to bring innovative curriculum materials in energy education to teachers and learners from the primary grades through college. (less)

Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor

The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer materials and ... (more)

The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer materials and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers (atomic distances are ~ 0.1 nm). The properties of such "nanostructures" cannot be described in terms of macroscopic parameters like mobility and diffusion coefficient and a microscopic or atomistic viewpoint is called for. The purpose of this course is to convey the conceptual framework that underlies this microscopic theory of matter which developed in course of the 20th century following the advent of quantum mechanics. However, this requires us to discuss a lot more than just quantum mechanics - it requires an appreciation of some of the most advanced concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. Traditionally these topics are spread out over many physics/ chemistry courses that take many semesters to cover. Our aim is to condense the essential concepts into a one semester course using electrical engineering related examples. The only background we assume is matrix algebra including familiarity with MATLAB (or an equivalent mathematical software package). We use MATLAB-based numerical examples to provide concrete illustrations and we strongly recommend that the students set up their own computer program on a PC to reproduce the results. This hands-on experience is needed to grasp such deep and diverse concepts in so short a time. (less)
