The Chemical Engineer's Toolbox: A Glass Box Approach to Numerical Problem Solving
Coronell, Daniel G.; Hariri, M. Hossein
Chemical Engineering Education, v43 n2 p143-149 Spr 2009
Computer programming in undergraduate engineering education all too often begins and ends with the freshman programming course. Improvements in computer technology and curriculum revision have improved this situation, but often at the expense of the students' learning due to the use of commercial "black box" software. This paper describes the Chemical Engineer's Toolbox, an Excel Add-In developed and used by students to promote the use of numerical problem solving in their core chemical engineering courses.
