In this interactive object, students view an animated depiction of Class 2 levers. A matching quiz completes the activity.
The Timing Functions of Optical Sensors
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated object, learners examine the switch settings for the on-delay, off-delay, and one-shot timing functions of an optical sensor. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Voltage Measurements of a Half-Wave Rectifier
In this animated lesson, students view how an oscilloscope and a DC voltmeter measure the voltage of a half-wave rectifier.
Ohm's Law: The Relationship of Voltage, Current, and Resistance
By Patrick Hoppe
In this interactive object, learners vary the value of the resistance to see how it affects current. Example problems are included.
Heat Transfer: Conduction, Convection, Radiation
By Laurie Jarvis, Deb Simonson
In this animated activity, learners explore three major methods of heat transfer and practice identifying each.
How Pressure Changes Boiling Temperature
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
Learners study the effect that pressure has on boiling temperatures. Once a liquid has reached a full boil, additional heat does not raise the liquid’s temperature; however, pressure can vary the boiling point of a liquid. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Identifying Lever Classes
By James Bourassa
In this interactive object, learners read an introduction to Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3 levers and then take a quiz.
Calculating Horsepower, RPM, and Torque
By James Bourassa, John Rosz
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine the formula for horsepower and work practice problems.
Orthographic Projection #1
By Glenn Sokolowski
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine orthographic projection and the Glass Box Theory. Front, side, and top view development is demonstrated with pictorial views of each object to help develop 2D to 3D visualization skills.
Brain Exercise: Visualization #1
In this interactive object, learners practice their 3D visualization skills by identifying the correct isometric view of an object. Front, side, and top orthographic views are shown.
