Cs04all: Cryptography Module, Hunter R. Johnson

Open Educational Resources

Cryptography module

This archive contains a series of lessons on cryptography suitable for use in a CS0 course. The only requirement is familiarity with Python, particularly dictionaries, lists, and file IO. It is also assumed that students know how to create stand-alone Python programs and interact with them through the terminal. Most of the work is done in Jupyter notebooks.

The material found in the notebooks is a combination of reading material, exercises, activities and assignments. Below are descriptions of each lesson or assignment and links to notebooks on Cocalc. The same files are available for batch download in this ...

Cs04all: Natural Language Processing Project, Hunter R. Johnson

Open Educational Resources

In this archive there are two activities/assignments suitable for use in a CS0 or Intro course which uses Python.

In the first activity, students are asked to "fill in the code" in a series of short programs that compute a similarity metric (cosine similarity) for text documents. This involves string tokenization, and frequency counting using Python string methods and datatypes.

https://cocalc.com/share/bde99afd-76c8-493d-9608-db9019bcd346/171/Proj1?viewer=share/

In the second activity (taken directly from Think Python 2e) students use a pronunciation dictionary to solve a riddle involving homophones.

5 - Irregularities In Young Stellar Models: Are Starspots To Blame?, Jessica Hamilton Nov 2018

5 - Irregularities In Young Stellar Models: Are Starspots To Blame?, Jessica Hamilton

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Starspots are dark areas on a star’s surface formed by intense magnetic fields that actively suppress the flow of energy, causing the area to become cooler and darker than its surroundings. Starspots threaten a star’s equilibrium because they prevent energy from leaving the star, causing a buildup of pressure. The prevailing assumption is that increased pressure will cause the star to inflate, producing a cooler and larger star. For this reason, starspots have been proposed to explain why some stars appear cooler and larger than we expect. This requires energy blocked by a spot to be trapped deep ...


24 - Using 3d Printing To Optimize Research In X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy, Mark Leggiero Nov 2018

24 - Using 3d Printing To Optimize Research In X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy, Mark Leggiero

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Research in the physical sciences often requires elaborate instruments with expensive equipment, and fixtures and mounting for these instruments can often be difficult to obtain. With great developments in the consumer market for digital manufacturing, 3D printing has the potential to be a vital resource in any physical science research space for creating these necessities. The benefits of 3D printing include the small form factor of the machines, low material costs, and the ability to allow rapid prototyping in designing essential parts to research. The goal of this project is to explore the applications and benefits of 3D printing and ...


3 - The Zeeman Effect And Its Potential In Molecular Spectroscopy, Megan L. Climer Nov 2018

3 - The Zeeman Effect And Its Potential In Molecular Spectroscopy, Megan L. Climer

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Zeeman Effect and Its Potential in Molecular Spectroscopy

Megan Climer

The Zeeman Effect is a splitting of energy levels or shells within an atom that is caused by an external magnetic field exerting torque on the electrons in the atom. The splitting itself is proportional to the strength of the magnetic field applied while the number of splits depends on the energy level of the atom itself. These splits can be observed in spectroscopy as distinct spectral lines that are formed in the place where only one was before. Studying this difference due to the magnetic field allows us to ...

A Model Archive For Sediment Transport Model Including Short-Lived Radioisotopes: Model Description And Idealized Test Cases, Justin J. Birchler, Courtney K. Harris, Tara A. Kniskern

Data

This dataset includes model input, code, and output used in the publication Birchler et al. (2018, Journal of Marine Science and Engineering), which used a coupled hydrodynamic-sediment transport-biogeochemical model to investigate the roles of resuspension, deposition, on biodiffusion on the behavior of short-lived radioisotopes in an idealized one-dimensional model setting. Model development for this project focused on incorporating radioisotope tracers into the sediment transport module in the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS). As described in Birchler et al. (2018, Journal of Marine Science and Engineering), the model can account for supply and sorption of radioisotope tracers in the water column ...

Consumer Value Of Sustainable Water Practices, Ann Marie Elaban, Susan Shaw Apr 2018

Consumer Value Of Sustainable Water Practices, Ann Marie Elaban, Susan Shaw

Undergraduate Research Symposium

As the fashion industry continues to grow so does its environmental impact. While consumers and manufacturers have begun to recognize their impact on today’s natural resources we still face huge amounts of pollution, specifically in our world’s water. One of the most widely used fibers, cotton, has created an industry dependent on water, which is becoming growingly scare. The goal of this case study is to identify and understand consumers’ concerns when it comes to water use in the cotton industry. Reviewing what industry leaders are already doing to help reduce their water waste and pollution is of ...
