Fundamental Principles for a Post-Secondary Engineering Graphics Course.pdf
Conditions of Use:

Prologue: All too often current “CAD” text books concentrate too much on the software and not enough on the basic fundamental principles that are required to create a working industrial drawing. More and more college freshman enter the post-secondary arena knowing one or more cad software packages. A skilled instructor can rapidly get a group of students up to speed on whatever software package that is being used at that institution. However, over the last 25 years it has been my experience that many students only know the software…and not what to do with it. Now, this is not the fault of the technology education teachers in the secondary school system. They are most likely trained with a Charles Prosser philosophy that students leave high school with a set of skills grounded in meeting the needs of industry. However, since very few technology education teachers have actually spent any time in industry as a draftsman, designers, or engineers…the product they produce only knows “some” of what is required to be successful in the post-secondary arena. Make no mistake, this is not something done intentionally…it is simply the way “the American Education System” works. This document and the material contained within is being created to assist in both secondary and post-secondary educators who lack either the educational component of how to facilitate the required material…or more importantly, what that required material is.

Conditions of Use:

Rating

Manufacturing processes can be organized by considering the type of energy required to shape the work-piece. In this course, sources of energy considered for machining are mechanical used for cutting and shaping, heat energy such as in laser cutting, photochemical such as in photolithography, and chemical energy such as in electro chemical machining and chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Students, guided by product specifications and a design will decide: 1) When to apply mechanical machining vs. lithography based machining, 2) What type of mechanical machining and what type of lithography based machining to apply, 3) When to employ bottom-up vs. top-down manufacturing, 4) When to choose serial, batch or continuous manufacturing and 5) What rapid prototyping method to select. A logical decision tree will be presented to sort the machining options. Examples from a variety of products ranging in size from nanometers to centimeters will be considered.

This course was developed to satisfy the California Commission of Teaching credentialing requirements for teacher candidates. The class provides opportunities for candidates to learn how to teach the basic and essential fundamentals of physical education for K-6th grade students. The central knowledge is about children’s motor skill development along with the emotional and social aspects related to physical activity. Teachers will learn the key aspects of a physical education lesson, which include a warm-up activity, the lesson plan (skill development and game applications), and closure. As a total lesson, at least half the time is spent in moderate to vigorous activity.

The course also addresses classroom management techniques, safety and liability, kinesiology, and instructional techniques. It incorporates discussions of multicultural aspects and special needs populations, and concludes with ideas for integrating physical education with academic subjects such as mathematics, language, and natural and social sciences.

The “Flipped Classroom” model of instruction has generated discussion around the world of education. Numerous articles have been written documenting experiences surrounding this method of teaching. The one piece that has been missing from this discussion is a sound framework to design a “Flipped” course using proven design principles. Instructional Design provides a proven framework to design all types of instruction and these principles can be used to design a “Flipped” course.

Atlas of Renal Lesions in Proteinuric Dogs
Rating

The goal of this Renal Pathology Atlas is to provide teaching material to veterinary pathologists and nephropathologists. The atlas demonstrates the breadth of lesions that can occur within a cohort of dogs presenting with the clinical sign of protein loss in the urine. Kidney samples were examined with multiple modalities including: histopathology, immunofluorescence and electron microscopy. Integration of these comprehensive evaluations with the clinical history can help veterinary pathologists and nephrologists to better understand the etiology and prognosis of renal lesions in proteinuric dogs.

O objetivo do estudo foi compreender as relações entre o mito e as práticas de trabalho do agroecossistema familiar na construção da conservação ambiental. Sob o ponto de análise da prática de conservação ambiental de influência mítica o estudo se deu em Nova Aliança, comunidade pertencente ao município de Benjamin Constant, Alto Solimões, Amazonas, Brasil. A presente cartilha intitulada "A conservação ambiental de influência mítica no ensino da Língua Portuguesa, Alto Solimões-AM", pretende usar o etnosaber no contexto educacional para mediar a sensibilidade e a continuidade de práticas que promovam a conservação do sistema ambiental e o ensino da Língua Portuguesa. Direcionando assim, a práxis pedagógica para o educador do Ensino Fundamental (5º ao 9º ano) de Ensino Básico no contexto escolar do Altos Solimões, Amazonas, Brasil. Em vista disso, a estrutura desta, é constituída de informações sobre a localização da área investigada, o mito de criação do povo Kokama a partir da visão dos mais idosos, história do povo Kokama de Nova Aliança, os agroecossistemas familiares ou unidades produtivas, a representação da perspectiva de interações, as relações morfossintáticas da Língua Portuguesa, o processo de desenvolvimento do ensino, sugestão de temas e as considerações. Educador, bom uso desta proposta, podendo ainda colaborar com sugestões ou compartilhando com os demais profissionais das outras áreas do Ensino básico. É uma demonstração de visibilidade da conservação ambiental dos Kokamas para a sociedade envolvente. E uma das muitas alternativas para o ensino da Língua Portuguesa e outros componentes curriculares da escola amazônica.
