Project Links
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, webbased 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 highschool 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.
