  3. The Transparency Paradox: Computational Simulations as Learning Tools for Engineering Graduate Education

    08 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana, Sean Brophy,

    Computational simulations have become a critical part of computational science, which is being described as the third leg in this century’s methodologies of science. Computational simulations have also become a critical element of learning experiences as they can provide engineering students...

  4. Are Simulation Tools Developed and Used by Experts Appropriate Experimentation Tools for Educational Contexts?

    08 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana, Sean Brophy,

    Simulations and visualizations can lead to significant improvements in students'conceptual understanding. This increased understanding may be due to the formation of expert-like dynamic mental models. Laboratory simulations have been used in educational contexts forinquiry learning by allowing...

    08 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana, Sean Brophy,

    Simulations can provide a critical element of learning experiences. Simulations are alsobecoming a critical part of computational science, which is being described as the thirdlegin this century's methodologies of science (Sabelli, et. al, 2005). Opportunities existto use the same simulation as...
