View Resource Learning Materials in a Problem Based Course

This webpage from the U.K. Center for Materials Education provides an introduction to the use of case studies. The guide provides several examples of materials case studies that are being used in the U.K. in materials and engineering courses at various points in the academic program. A bibliography of resources for educators interested in learning more about the case study method is also included.

View Resource Metallurgy and Materials Case Studies: Teaching and Learning Resources

This University of Birmingham (U.K.) website provides a wealth of resources for both the college educator and student using a case-based approach to materials science. The site provides background information on the use of case studies in teaching, a series of case studies in materials, broadly defined, information on group learning and how to facilitate group learning, and assessment.

View Resource Resource Depletion

This lesson plan from ATEEC will instruct students on resource management practices. The activity would be most appropriate for environmental biology or general science classes. The purpose of the lesson is to teach the cost effectiveness of mining and the disposal of mined materials. Students 'mine' a shoebox of birdseed to collect bbs. Penalties are assessed for environmental damage. The...

View Resource Rock Mass Characterization for Underground Hard Rock Mines

Authors J. Hadjigeorgiou, D. Milne, and R. Pakalnis introduce different rock mass characterizations and how they play a vital role in rock engineering. This paper discusses the use of three main classification systems by the mining industry. The resource is broken down into three different sections. The first focuses on field parameters and modifications made to these over the past two decades....

View Resource Metals

This radio broadcast reviews the evolution of metals since the discovery of copper in ancient times, and looks at how science and technology are continually upgrading the design and development of metal alloys. There are explanations of five ways the chemical composition of an alloy can be modified to produce different properties; how heat treating is used to process metals; how mining metals can...
