By reading and using A Teaching Guide to Revitalizing STEM Education, educators will rediscover how to streamline the subject matter- math, physics, statistics, and organic chemistry-by eliminating unnecessary difficulties and distractions from course textbooks. A useful guide for both high school teachers and postsecondary faculty, this book explains how to organize, arrange, and streamline STEM content so that it is approachable, understandable, and applicable for students.
Finally, a robots book for people who don't know the first thing about robotics! Absolute Beginner's Guide to Robots is well-written, inviting, and action-packed, with engaging ideas and fascinating factoids about robots and robot-related arts and sciences. You are led gently into the intimidating world of robotics, but nearly 400 pages later, you emerge with a respectable knowledge of robot history, the major fields and "schools" of robotics today, and the basic skills and resources needed to create hobby robots.
This lecture provides a hands-on glimpse of the field of electrical and computer engineering. The broad range of hands-on applications utilize LabVIEW and the NI-SPEEDY-33 hardware to explore concepts such as basic computer input and output, basic robotic principals, and introductory signal processing and communication concepts such as signal generation, modulation, music, speech, and audio and image/video processing. These principals and technologies are introduced in a very practical way and are fundamental to many of the electronic and computerized devices we use today. Some examples include audio level meter and audio effects, music synthesizer, real-time autonomous robot, image and video analysis, and DTMF modulation found in touch-tone telephone systems.
