Have you ever wondered why it takes such a long period of time for NASA to build space exploration equipment? What is involved in manufacturing and building a rover for the Red Planet? During this lesson, students will discover the journey that a Mars rover embarks upon after being designed by engineers and before being prepared for launch. Students will investigate the fabrication techniques, tolerance concepts, assembly and field-testing associated with a Mars exploratory rover.

Detail Drawings: Communicating with Engineers
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Students are introduced to detail drawings and the importance of clearly documenting and communicating their designs. They are introduced to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Y14.5 standard, which controls how engineers communicate and archive design information. They are introduced to standard paper sizes and drawing view conventions, which are major components of the Y14.5 standard.

Rating
0.0 stars

Students act as Mars exploratory rover engineers, designing, building and displaying their edible rovers to a design review. To begin, they evaluate rover equipment and material options to determine which parts might fit in their given NASA budget. With provided parts and material lists, teams analyze their design options and use their findings to design their rovers.

En avant les espaces vectoriels : une introduction à l’algèbre linéaire (première édition)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Conçu pour un cours de première année universitaire, ce manuel en algèbre linéaire adopte une approche peu commune : il présente les espaces vectoriels dès le début et traite des systèmes linéaires qu’après une introduction approfondie aux espaces vectoriels. Cette approche est fondée sur l’expérience des auteurs ayant observé au cours des 25 dernières années que les étudiantes et étudiants ont souvent besoin davantage de temps pour maîtriser les espaces vectoriels alors que les manuels traditionnels relèguent plutôt le sujet à la fin du cours. De cette façon, ces nouvelles notions au coeur de l’algèbre linéaire qui sont souvent considérées comme abstraites et difficiles dans un cours d’introduction peuvent ensuite être utilisées dans le reste du cours ainsi que différents contextes.

Fence That Farmland!
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Students develop and solidify their understanding of the concept of "perimeter" as they engage in a portion of the civil engineering task of land surveying. Specifically, they measure and calculate the perimeter of a fenced in area of "farmland," and see that this length is equivalent to the minimum required length of a fence to enclose it. Doing this for variously shaped areas confirms that the perimeter is the minimal length of fence required to enclose those shapes. Then students use the technology of a LEGO MINDSTORMS(TM) NXT robot to automate this task. After measuring the perimeter (and thus required fence length) of the "farmland," students see the NXT robot travel around this length, just as a surveyor might travel around an area during the course of surveying land or measuring for fence materials. While practicing their problem solving and measurement skills, students learn and reinforce their scientific and geometric vocabulary.

Students explore the concept of similar right triangles and how they apply to trigonometric ratios. Use this lesson as a refresher of what trig ratios are and how they work. In addition to trigonometry, students explore a clinometer app on an Android® or iOS® device and how it can be used to test the mathematics underpinning trigonometry. This prepares student for the associated activity, during which groups each put a clinometer through its paces to better understand trigonometry.

Student groups use a "real" 3D coordinate system to plot points in space. Made from balsa wood or wooden dowels, the system has three axes at right angles and a plane (the XY plane) that can slide up and down the Z axis. Students are given several coordinates and asked to find these points in space. Then they find the coordinates of the eight corners of a box/cube with given dimensions.

A Sweet Volume: Designing a Jumbo Chocolate Bar Using Polynomials
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Playing the role of engineers in collaborations with the marketing and production teams in a chocolate factory, students design a container for a jumbo chocolate bar. The projects constraints mean the container has to be a regular trapezoidal prism. The design has to optimize the material used to construct the container; that is, students have to find the dimensions of the container with the maximum volume possible. After students come up with their design, teams present a final version of the product that includes creative branding and presentation. The problem-solving portion of this project requires students to find a mathematical process to express the multiple variables in the prism’s volume formula as a single variable cubic polynomial function. Students then use technology to determine the value for which this function has a maximum and, with this value, find the prism’s optimal dimensions.

Vector Spaces First: An Introduction to Linear Algebra (4th Edition)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Created for a first-year university course, this linear algebra textbook takes an unusual approach: it introduces vector spaces at the outset and deals with linear systems only after a thorough introduction to vector spaces. This approach is based on the authors' experience over the past 25 years that students often need more time to master vector spaces while traditional textbooks relegate the topic to the end of the course. In this way, these new notions at the heart of linear algebra that are often considered abstract and difficult in an introductory course can then be used in the rest of the course as well as in different contexts.
