College Of Engineering Senior Design Competition Fall 2006, University Of Nevada, Las Vegas
Senior Projects (COE)
Part of every UNLV engineering student’s academic experience, the senior design project stimulates engineering innovation and entrepreneurship. Each student in their senior year chooses, plans, designs and prototypes a product in this required element of the curriculum. A capstone to the student’s educational career, the senior design project encourages the student to use everything learned in the engineering program to create a practical, real world solution to an engineering challenge.
The senior design competition helps to focus the senior students in increasing the quality and potential for commercial application for their design projects. Judges from local industry evaluate ...

Spherical Geometry, Linda Moore
Spherical Geometry, Linda Moore
MAT Exam Expository Papers
Spherical geometry was studied in ancient times as a subset of Euclidian threedimensional space. It was a logical outcome as the earth is a sphere. The word geometry literally means the measure of the earth. However, the undefined terms, axioms and postulates of Euclidian geometry take on a new meaning when studied on a sphere.

University of Maine Office of Research Administration: Grant Reports
The University of Maine (UMaine) College of Engineering proposes to partner with Bangor High School (BHS) to develop a model university/K12 partnership based on the disciplinary theme of sensors. The proposed model integrates education and research for the benefit of BHS students and teachers, and graduate and advanced undergraduate students, and faculty, within the College of Engineering at UMaine. GK12 Sensors! will involve faculty and students from the chemical, biological, electrical, computer, mechanical, civil/environmental, and spatial information engineering programs at the University of Maine. Five advanced undergraduate and ten graduate students will serve as GK12 Sensor Fellows. Faculty ...

What Happens When Salt Dissolves In Water? An Introduction To Scientific Argument And Counter Argument Drawn From The History Of Science, Kevin C. De Berg
What Happens When Salt Dissolves In Water? An Introduction To Scientific Argument And Counter Argument Drawn From The History Of Science, Kevin C. De Berg
Science and Mathematics Papers and Journal Articles
There is an increasing demand being placed on teachers to use episodes from the history of science in their teaching/learning activities in science classes but there is a dearth of material available to teachers that are suitable for such activities. This paper outlines two models of salt dissolution drawn from late 19th and early 20th century chemistry and some of the arguments advanced for each model at the time that are suitable for the senior chemistry classroom. Its suggests that teachers create a fifteenminute Interactive Historical Vignette using the content of the solution controversy to teach students how scientific ...

Veterinary Pathology Publications and Papers
Three related studies replicated and extended previous work (J.A. Danielson et al. (2003),Educational Technology Research and Development, 51(3), 63–81) involving the Diagnostic Pathfinder (dP) (previously Problem List Generator [PLG]), a cognitive tool for learning diagnostic problem solving. In studies 1 and 2, groups of 126 and 113 veterinary students, respectively, used the dP to complete casebased homework; groups of 120 and 199, respectively, used an alternative method. Students in the dP groups scored significantly higher (p = .000 and .003, respectively) on final exams than those in control groups. In the third study, 552 veterinary students responding ...
