This text was created by students in PHED 301 - Advanced Anatomy in the Sport, Health & Physical Education department at Vancouver Island University.
College Physics is organized such that topics are introduced conceptually with a steady progression to precise definitions and analytical applications. The analytical aspect (problem solving) is tied back to the conceptual before moving on to another topic. Each introductory chapter, for example, opens with an engaging photograph relevant to the subject of the chapter and interesting applications that are easy for most students to visualize.
This readily accessible online resource was developed for anyone who has interest in, or works with, AC motors and their associated motor control equipment. Whether you are an electrical apprentice learning about the subject in school or a seasoned journeyperson installing equipment in the field, you will find it easy to navigate through the descriptive text, original diagrams, and explanatory videos to find the exact information you are looking for.
This textbook is aligned with the British Columbia Adult Basic Education learning outcomes for Mathematics: Intermediate Level Algebra. The textbook introduces the fundamental concepts of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry while addressing the needs of students with diverse backgrounds and learning styles. Each topic builds upon previously developed material to demonstrate the cohesiveness and structure of mathematics.
This text is an informal beginner’s guide to the basics of statistics needed to conduct tests of statistical significance for simple experimental, quasi-experimental, and correlational research designs. Many free and open textbooks exist for more theoretical and traditional versions of introductory statistics, with more standard notation. This one is designed to be consistent with the approachable way I aim to teach the use of statistical analysis tools to students of psychology and the social sciences. The text is very informal and conversational, because it spawned from my written-out scripts to record brief video lessons.
Readers of this book will find information on how to apply their knowledge of psycho-educational assessments to a specialized population – children with multiple, severe disabilities. The specialized assessment skills presented include adaptations for motor, communication, visual, and hearing impairments. Thus, much of the information in this book will also be applicable to children who have specific (singular) impairments in one of these areas. This book provides many suggestions for further education on the topics presented. If you are reading a print version of this book, you may wish to access the electronic version of the book in order to have a direct link to online resources, videos, and articles. You can find the book (available for free) at the following website: https://pressbooks.bccampus.ca/jengle/.
This is a custom textbook catered to the needs of kinesiology students enrolled in a first-year biomechanics course. It has been modified from OpenStax College Physics and Anatomy and Physiology.
This Business Mathematics courses aim to have students understand basic business problems, interpret them in mathematical terms, and use the tools of mathematics to solve these problems. The objective of this material is to provide mathematical theory, demonstration and practice for first-year Business students. A grade of C+ or better in Algebra 11 (or equivalent) is the prerequisite for this course; students requiring extensive review or remedial work are expected to have completed a preparatory course such as OPMT 0199, which is offered through part-time studies at BCIT. These notes explain the applications of basic mathematics to business and industry using ratios, functions and graphs, simple and compound interest, financial instruments and discounting, annuities, mortgages, loans, and leases. Cash-flow analysis applying rates of return, net present value, and payback is included.
Welcome to Business Presentation Skills. This course teaches you how to communicate effectively in business situations. You’ll learn public speaking, communication, and meeting management skills.
CHEM 1114 - Introduction to Chemistry is designed for a one-semester introductory chemistry course. For many students, this course provides their first introduction to chemistry. As such, this textbook provides an important opportunity for students to learn some of the core concepts of chemistry and understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. The text has been developed to meet the scope and sequence of most introductory chemistry courses, including an initial emphasis on the skills required (chapter 1 and 2) for the laboratory portion of the course.
This book describes the simplified architecture of an IoT network from the core functional perspective and then presents step-by-step procedures to establish a connection between the IoT device and platform. It practically shows how to connect a cellular IoT module to the Microsoft Azure IoT Hub using the LTE-M technology.
Strategies for thinking critically and writing effectively about topics that engage practitioners in Forestry, particularly in Wood Products Processing. Planning, drafting and editing of professional-quality documents for specialists and other stakeholders. Developing oral presentation skills.
A workshop and facilitation guide to support B.C. post-secondary institutions to prevent and respond to sexual violence and misconduct. Consent & Sexual Violence is a 90 minute workshop for all members of the campus community: students, faculty, administrators, and staff. This training explores different understandings of consent, including the legal definition. Learners have the opportunity to develop skills related to asking for and giving consent in all relationships as well as discuss strategies for creating a “culture of consent” in campus communities. (The slide deck that accompanies this resource can be downloaded from the Introduction).
The goal of the Designing for All: A Toolkit for Maximum Digital impact is to provide resources for instructors at Vancouver Island University to create digitally accessible courses for their students. It focuses on the suite of tools supported by the Centre for Innovation and Excellence in Learning (CIEL). A giant thank you to BCcampus and their Accessibility Toolkit - 2nd Edition. We were able to rely heavily on the content provided in that publication in the creation of our own version. Thank you for your hard work.
