  1. Learning about Surface Area and Volume Using "Spaghetti and Meatballs for All!"

    05 Apr 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Joyce Palmer Allen

    The purpose of this lesson is to help students extend their knowledge of area, perimeter, and volume to include surface area.  The understanding of these concepts begin in the elementary grades and helps students understand events such as why a hot potato cools down quicker when it is...

  2. Tensile Testing Laboratory: Nanoscale and Macroscale Metal Samples

    24 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Aisling Coughlan, Kendra A. Erk, David Ray Johnson, Tanya Faltens, Alejandro Strachan, Heidi A Diefes-Dux

    This document is an updated (Fall 2015) sophomore materials science and engineering tensile testing laboratory handout that introduces students to the atomic-level processes that are responsible for plastic deformation. By performing standard tensile tests on a ductile metal in conjunction with...

  3. Framework for Evaluating Simulations: Analysis of Student Developed Interactive Computer Tool

    25 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Yi Kong, Krishna Madhavan

    This is the presentation for a paper presented at the 2015 annual American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) conference. The paper discusses a developed framework for evaluating and scaffolding student-developed simulations in an open-ended learning environment.  The full paper...
