Evaluating Sources for the Technical Research Report
Students view information taken from various sources and decide if the material is acceptable for a technical research report. After choosing whether or not the source material is acceptable, the students read an explanation from the instructor.
Learners examine pictorial drawings used in engineering including sectioned and exploded drawings. A sketching quiz is provided to help the learner create simple pictorial sketches by using orthographic views and an isometric template.
Learners consider the factors that determine how well an inductive proximity sensor can detect an object. Those factors are size, position, and the material from which the target is made. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In this colorful, interactive object, learners examine how materials on the nanoscale compare with those on the macroscale. The focus is on the difference between macroscale and nanoscale gold in both color and melting point.
In this animated object, learners examine the factors that determine how well a capacitive proximity sensor can detect an object. Those factors include size, position, and the materials from which the target is made. A brief quiz completes the activity.
