Exercises Problems and Sturm-Liouville. We recommend that the instructor read the discussion given in the preface in order to gain an overview of the prerequisites, topics of emphasis, and general philosophy of the text. Contains complete, worked-out solutions to most odd-numbered exercises, providing students with an excellent study tool.
Access: www. Louis University , and Hubert Hohn Massachusetts College of Arts is a popular software directly tied to the text that focuses on helping students visualize concepts. Applications are drawn from engineering, physics, chemistry, and biology.
A collection of worksheets and projects to aid instructors in integrating computer algebra systems into their courses. Available in the Pearson Instructor Resource Center at www. In our teaching and in our texts, we have tried to provide a variety of exercises, problems, and projects that encourage the student to use the computer to explore. Even one or two hours at a computer generating phase plane diagrams can provide the students with a feeling of how they will use technology together with the theory to investigate real world problems.
Furthermore, our experience is that they thoroughly enjoy these activities. Of course, the software, provided free with the texts, is especially convenient for such labs. Group Projects Although the projects that appear at the end of the chapters in the text can be worked out by the conscientious student working alone, making them group projects adds a social element that encourages discussion and interactions that simulate a professional work place atmosphere.
Group sizes of 3 or 4 seem to be optimal. Typically, our students each work on 3 or 4 projects per semester. If class time permits, oral presentations by the groups can be scheduled and help to improve the communication skills of the students.
The role of the instructor is, of course, to help the students solve these elaborate problems on their own and to recommend additional reference material when appropriate. Some additional Group Projects are presented in this guide see page Technical Writing Exercises The technical writing exercises at the end of most chapters invite students to make documented responses to questions dealing with the concepts in the chapter.
This not only gives students an opportunity to improve their writing skills, but it helps them organize their thoughts and better understand the new concepts.
Moreover, many questions deal with critical thinking 2. This has worked well in our classes and is much appreciated by the students. Student Presentations It is not uncommon for an instructor to have students go to the board and present a solution to a problem. Here, too, working in groups of 3 or 4 and sharing the presentation responsibilities can add substantially to the interest and quality of the presentation. Students should also be encouraged to enliven their communication by building physical models, preparing part of their lectures with the aid of video technology, and utilizing appropriate internet web sites.
An essential feature is that it requires little extra work on the part of the instructor or grader. We assign homework problems about 5 of them after each lecture. At the end of the week Fridays , students are asked to turn in their homework typically, 3 sets for that week. We then choose at random one problem from each assignment typically, a total of 3 that will be graded. The point is that the student does not know in advance which problems will be chosen.
Full credit is given for any of the chosen problems for which there is evidence that the student has made an honest attempt at solving. The homework grades are tallied at the end of the semester and count as one test grade. Certainly, there are variations c Pearson Education, Inc. As a further guide in making a choice of subject matter, we provide starting on the next page a listing of text material dealing with some common areas of emphasis.
These outlines are easy for the student to translate into a computer program pp. Section 3. Section 4. Section 5. Stability is also an important subject for engineers, so we have included an introduction to the subject in Section 5. Project C for Chapter 3: Curve of Pursuit. Project C for Chapter 5: Things that Bob.
Project D for Chapter 5: Hamiltonian Systems. Chapter 7: Laplace Transforms, which in addition to basic material includes discussions of transfer functions, the Dirac delta function, and frequency response modelling. Section Problem 19 in Exercises We would appreciate any comments you may have concerning the answers in this manual.
We also would encourage sharing with us the authors and users of the texts any of your favorite group projects. See More. Kent Nagle Edward B.
