Arrays in Java (Arrays)

Description

Abstraction is a significant problem in learning to program. The learner has to relate the surface code to the operations in the memory of the computer. Visualisation of an ?array? is used here to help learners to form a mental concept that enables them to make sense of the surface code. A play-like drag and drop 'exercise' is used near the end to get the learner to actively test their understanding.

While Loops

Description

This learning object seeks to engage the learner through attractive use of visualisation. As the subject is 'repetition' this is illustrated by using repeated actions to move an object across a screen. Redundancy is built in to help weaker students, but this may be bypassed. 'Scaffolding' is used near the end of the object to enable the learner to engage in building the programming construct in a safe supportive environment. This takes the form of building the code by selecting from code fragments provided.

Control systems analysis for engineers

Description

This site contains links to resources for an introduction to control analysis for second year engineering undergraduate.The main focus is on block diagrams, offsets, pole computations, understanding stability/instability, root-loci, bode, nyquist, margins and an introduction to lead and lag compensation. The focus is on analysis not design which is covered in a later course. The resources here include the lecture hand outs which include embedded tutorial questions, some powerpoints for structuring lectures, some games/quizzes for lectures, a MATLAB laboratory based on significant prior practice, a FLASH lecture and then a formal laboratory test under exam conditions and a small data base of CAA developed on webct (here provided in a zip file). These were developed at the University of Shef

Using MATLAB for engineers

Description

Introductory course on learning and using MATLAB aimed at 1st year engineering undergraduate. These were developed at the University of Sheffield and authored by J A Rossiter from The Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering. The files include a slightly animated power point slide (runs via web) which includes audio. Hence a little like a lecture. The source m-files mentioned are also supplied in the zip files mentioned. These m-files cover a group of topics. Read the instruction file to learn how to make 'lectures' available to students. More information for control with MATLAB is stored under the control contribution by same author and on the website http://controleducation.group.shef.ac.uk/acs211/notes_webct_quizzes_acs211.htm
