This virtual laboratory, which accompanies the Johns Hopkins University course "500.101 What is Engineering?" uses JAVA interactive technology to offer students experiment-oriented problems via the WWW or CD-ROM. The objective of the course and the virtual laboratory is to introduce beginning science and engineering students to

eCourses web portal is designed to assist both students and professors in basic engineering courses. The web site includes all instructional material to conduct a course and there is no cost to either the instructor or student. Features include eBook, database of homework/quiz/test problems, solutions to all problems, lectures in both Quicktime and Flash format, computer grading, and utilities. To help facilitate communications between students, instructors, and TAs there is an integrate web board and collaborative drawing board. Each web-based course is controlled and administered by the instructor. There are six complete engineering eBooks available directly without having to register or set up any class. The eBooks cover Statics, Dynamics, Thermodynamics, Fluids, Math, and Multimedia. The eBooks are also searchable using a Google-Mini for fast and accurate indexing.

To futher our knowledge of science and engineering, we try to formulate mathematical models that quantify behaviors. We trust these models only when they predict observed behavior. Normally this requires the solution of the unknown quantities in our model when written in a system of equations.

What is a vector? The answer may surprize you. But let's start with the simplest view of a vector. It is an arrow that records distance and direction. By stringing together a sequence of arrows we can provide detailed directions for a journey, or outline an object. It is the way we add arrows to produce a new arrow that really identifies what a vector is. We can incorporate this addition property to other quantities such as velocities, forces, and even functions. What quickly emerges is that it is the linear combination of vectors that allows great diversity in applications and provides deep understanding to the nature of solutions to linear problems. This module starts with the basic Description of vectors and then proceeds to elucidate their role in the Formation of systems of linear equations.

The SOCR Database contains a number of datasets that may be used for demonstration purposes in probability and statistics education. There are two types of data - simulated (computer-generated using random sampling) and observed (research, observationally or experimentally acquired).

The Probability and Statistics EBook is an internet-based electronic textbook. The materials, tools, and demonstrations presented in this EBook would be very useful for advanced-placement (AP) statistics educational curriculum. The EBook was initially developed by the UCLA Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR). However, all statistics instructors, researchers, and educators are encouraged to contribute to this project and improve the content of these learning materials. There are four novel features of this specific Statistics EBook: it is community-built; completely open-access (in terms of use and contributions); blends information technology, scientific techniques, and modern pedagogical concepts; and is multilingual.

This module teaches the basic principles of semi-classical transport simulation based on the time-dependent Boltzmann transport equation (BTE) formalism with performance considerations for parallel implementations of multi-dimensional transport simulation and the numerical methods for efficient and accurate solution of the BTE for both electronic and thermal transport using the simple finite difference discretization and the stable upwind method.
