Created by Work-Ready Electronics, a project of the Advanced Technological Education program, this module walks visitors through the basics of micro embedded controllers. The content of the site is divided into four areas: how micros are used, microcontroller architecture, microcontroller memory, input/output interfaces. There is a quiz for each in the Knowledge Probe area, and the Learning Resources section contains three activities to help cement student understanding. There are also further resources - both print and Web based - for more information and two Questors, a Flash trivia game. The Notebook function allows visitors to take notes and review them at any time. This is an excellent resource students and educators in electronics technician programs.

This resource from the Guitarbuilding.org project uses the example of swirl-dipped guitars to illustrate "classification of matter, hydrophobic and hydrophilic compounds, and forces within liquids." Since it is not feasible for a class to have an actual instrument to work with, the students will use common items including paper plates, food coloring and shaving cream to replicate the process. Teacher and student handouts are included in the document.This is the first part of a two-part activity; the second part may be found here.

Water #1: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". Isotopes are forms of the same element composed of atoms that have different numbers of neutrons. In this problem we will begin by observing the properties of water containing two isotopes of hydrogen. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.

A computational module has been developed in which students examine the binding interactions between indinavir and HIV-1 protease. The project is a component of the Medicinal Chemistry course offered to upper level chemistry, biochemistry, and biology majors. Students work with modeling and informatics tools utilized in drug development research while evaluating wild-type and mutated forms of the HIV-1 protease in complex with the inhibitor indinavir. By quantifying the molecular interactions within protease-inhibitor complexes, students can characterize the structural basis for reduced efficacy of indinavir.

Created by Work-Ready Electronics, a project of the Advanced Technological Education program, this module is the first of two covering data conversion techniques, specifically digital-to-analog conversion (DAC) and analog-to-digital conversion (ADC). The module reviews basic concepts and methods and provides an overview of the rationale, need, and terminology. It also covers the fundamentals of DAC, introduces the newest methods, describes the critical specifications, and introduces typical integrated circuits (ICs) and applications. In addition to these course materials, there are two "Knowledge Probes" which provide an opportunity for students to master the objectives of the module. By clicking on "Learning Resources" at the top of the page, users will also find supplemental learning activities and additional resources for practice and research. The module also includes a glossary of terms and a notebook function.

These two lectures are aimed to give a practical guide to the use of a general device simulator (PROPHET) available on nanoHUB. PROPHET is a partial differential equation (PDE) solver that offers users the flexibility of integrating new models and equations for their nano-device simulations. The first lecture covers the basics of PROPHET, including the set-up of simulation structures and parameters based on pre-defined PDE systems. The second lecture uses examples to illustrate how to build user-defined PDE systems in PROPHET.
