In this interactive and animated object, students distribute the valence electrons in simple covalent molecules with one central atom. Six rules are followed to show the bonding and nonbonding electrons in Lewis dot structures. The process is well illustrated with eight worked examples and two interactive practice problems.
In a series of three interactive exercises, learners explore the relationship between process cycle time and defect detection, and between process cyle time and smaller batch sizes. The techniques of lean/JIT are applied to achieve the continuous improvement (kaizen) goal of reducing inventory by pursuing one-piece flow.
In this interactive object, part 3 in a series, learners follow the steps of the “mathemagician” to examine four numerical curiosities: What’s Special About 1089, Perfect Squares: 1089 and 9801, The Mathematical Significance of 1776, and The Calculator Number Game. The learner will also study six number patterns and look at one remarkable table. Immediate feedback is provided.
Learners examine a 555 integrated circuit, which functions as a one-shot monostable multivibrator, and then test their knowledge. Immediate feedback is provided. Animations are used to show the sequential operations.
Learners read a description of the wiring configuration of a residential Edison Wire System, which consists of a transformer secondary circuit. The circuit supplies two 115-volt sources and one 230-volt source.
