This resource is composed of materials from Wayne State University's professional development workshops which are designed to introduce educators to hybrid electric and electric vehicle fundamentals. Included materials are an event agenda, faculty presentations, and fliers.
This resource provides access to materials associated with the Fundamentals in Evidence-Based Decision-Making series at the Northern California Training Academy. To learn more about the series, please visit the Academy website at www.humanservices.ucdavis.edu/academy
From its beginnings in the late nineteenth century, electrical engineering has blossomed from focusing on electrical circuits for power, telegraphy and telephony to focusing on a much broader range of disciplines. However, the underlying themes are relevant today: Power creation and transmission and information have been the underlying themes of electrical engineering for a century and a half. This course concentrates on the latter theme: the representation, manipulation, transmission, and reception of information by electrical means. This course describes what information is, how engineers quantify information, and how electrical signals represent information.
Fundamentals of Mathematics is a work text that covers the traditional topics studied in a modern prealgebra course, as well as topics of estimation, elementary analytic geometry, and introductory algebra. It is intended for students who (1) have had a previous course in prealgebra, (2) wish to meet the prerequisite of a higher level course such as elementary algebra, and (3) need to review fundamental mathematical concepts and techniques. NOTE: This collection is a work in progress, and the content has not yet been marked up in CNXML. You can download PDF copies of individual chapters in from their respective modules.
In this investigation, students will explore the question: Can there be life outside of Earth? Students will use planet hunting models to discover how scientists find new planets and perform simulated spectroscopic measurements to determine if the chemical requirements for life are present.
Build your own system of heavenly bodies and watch the gravitational ballet. With this orbit simulator, you can set initial positions, velocities, and masses of 2, 3, or 4 bodies, and then see them orbit each other.
This four credit course offered at Macomb Community College analyzes and evaluates hydrogen fuel cell technology. Topics include hydrogen safety, storage, production, codes, regulations, and standards associated with hydrogen. This course also discusses the history of fuel cells, current applications, future use, fuel cell structures, operations, and classifications. Included educational materials for this course are the first day handout, syllabus, weekly lesson plans, homework, PowerPoint presentations with instructor notes, and sample exams. Solutions are not provided with any materials. If you're an instructor and would like complete exams or solutions, please contact the CAAT. This course is composed of sixteen modules that can be used to supplement existing courses or can be taught together as a complete course. Module subjects include the following: (1) hydrogen safety, (2) hydrogen production, (3) hydrogen storage, (4) hydrogen comparison to conventional fuels, (5) hydrogen state codes, standards, and regulations, (6) hydrogen national codes, standards, and regulations, (7) hydrogen international codes, standards, and regulations, (8) review and midterm, (9) fuel cell relevance and definition, (10) fuel cell operation, (11) electrical components and ratings for fuel cells, (12) history of fuel cells, (13) state and national government initiatives, (14) fuel cell types, (15) fuel cell applications, and (16) review and final exam.
