In this paper an approach to lecturing, that of Targeted Breaks, will be introduced. These are offered as a means to enhance the traditional lecture format so as to increase student comprehension, interest and the...
Students typically struggle with sophomore level dynamics and this difficulty is compounded when the material is extended to three dimensions. Coriolis acceleration can be daunting in planar kinetics adding additional...
This paper describes a relatively simple method in which planar rigid body motion can be measured and analyzed in the context of an upper division mechanical engineering laboratory course. The overall intention of this...
Our goal is to enable deeper learning by undergraduate engineering students via experience with an open-ended design project. In addition to knowledge, comprehension, and application, engineering design requires...
This paper describes in detail 4 major projects undertaken by mechanical engineering students in an abbreviated laboratory (lab) component of a combined statics and dynamics course, often taken by sophomores. For each...
