Yilmaz, Levent; Wang, Shuo – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2005
Proper design analysis is indispensable to assure quality and reduce emergent costs due to faulty software. Teaching proper design verification skills early during pedagogical development is crucial, as such analysis is the only tractable way of resolving software problems early when they are easy to fix. The premise of the presented strategy is…

Tchibozo, Guy – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2005
In France, secondary teachers are public sector employees. Becoming a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) teacher in secondary education is subject to passing public competitive entry examinations. Preparation for these examinations is provided in College Departments, which are essentially assessed on the basis of their success…

Ahrens, Fred; Mistry, Rajendra – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2005
In product engineering there often arise design analysis problems for which a commercial software package is either unavailable or cost prohibitive. Further, these calculations often require successive iterations that can be time intensive when performed by hand, thus development of a software application is indicated. This case relates to the…
