A cooperative effort by mathematicians, engineers and scientists to develop educational materials that link mathematical topics with applications in engineering and science. The primary product of this effort is a set of interactive, web-based learning modules.

Engineering Area: Mechanical Engineering
California Mathematics Standard: Algebra
Case Studies - Computational Science Education Project

CSEP (Computational Science Education Project) is an electronic book for teaching Computational Science and Engineering. The intended audience are students in science and engineering at the advanced undergraduate level and higher. Tutorials for freely available networking and visualization software are included and have attracted a range of users, including high-school students and people from the commercial sector.

Engineering Area: Computer Engineering
California Mathematics Standard: Problem Solving and Mathematical Reasoning
Beams, Bending, and Boundary Conditions - The Geometry Center Calculus Development Team

Beams hold up the roof over your head and give support to the walls surrounding you. Beams are literally all around us. Engineers use beams to support and strengthen structures ranging from silos to bridges to towering skyscrapers. In this lab, the mathematics associated with the static deformation of beams will be explored. We will begin with the geometric concepts of centroids and moments of inertia, and then learn how different methods of supporting a beam contribute to the beam's ability to support loads.
