Moulding, Brett, Ed.; Songer, Nancy, Ed.; Brenner, Kerry, Ed. – National Academies Press, 2018
It is essential for today's students to learn about science and engineering in order to make sense of the world around them and participate as informed members of a democratic society. The skills and ways of thinking that are developed and honed through engaging in scientific and engineering endeavors can be used to engage with evidence in making…

Marcovitz, Alan B., Ed. – 1978
A particularly difficult area for many engineering students is the approximate nature of the relation between models and physical systems. This is notably true when the models consist of differential equations. An approach applied to this problem has been to use analog computers to assist in portraying the output of a model as it is progressively…

Mitchell, Eugene E., Ed. – 1978
In certain boundary layer or natural convection work, where a similarity transformation is valid, the equations can be reduced to a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. They are therefore well-suited to a fast solution on an analog/hybrid computer. This paper illustrates such usage of the analog/hybrid computer by a set of…

Mitchell, Eugene E., Ed. – 1978
The simulation of a sampled-data system is described that uses a full parallel hybrid computer. The sampled data system simulated illustrates the proportional-integral-derivative (PID) discrete control of a continuous second-order process representing a stirred-tank. The stirred-tank is simulated using continuous analog components, while PID…

Rasmussen, Frederick A. – 1978
The stated purpose of this resource guide is to entice teachers to explore ecological aspects of coastal awareness. Discussions describe different characteristics of the coast such as: (1) waves, currents, and tides; (2) sandy beaches; (3) rocky shores; (4) estuaries; and (5) marshes. These discussions present some of the physical processes that…

Maine Univ., Orono. Coll. of Education. – 1979
This interdisciplinary unit is intended for use with third grade classes. It examines the history and economics of man's relationships to the beaver. It investigates the natural history of the beaver, its anatomy, range, food sources, and the skills it employs to modify its environment by building dams. The structure of beaver dams is examined.…

Maine Univ., Orono. Coll. of Education. – 1979
This interdisciplinary unit is intended for use in kindergarten classes. The unit follows the story line of the book, "Grandma's Beach Surprise," or any suitable children's story about the seashore environment. The unit deals with shelled animals found along the ocean shore. It includes the anatomy of various mollusks, their interaction with the…

Maine Univ., Orono. Coll. of Education. – 1979
This multidisciplinary unit deals with whales, whaling lore and history, and the interaction of the whale with the complex marine ecosystem. It seeks to teach adaptation of marine organisms. It portrays the concept that man is part of the marine ecosystem and man's activities can deplete and degrade marine ecosystems, endangering the survival of…
