PH 423 (Energy and Entropy) Math Bits

On 11/14/17, Paul edited this page to reflect the Math Bits implemented in Autumn 2017; the original version of the information for the EE Math Bits is currently archived at the bottom of the page, but can be deleted once the page is finalized.

Differentials (50 minutes)

Variables and Representations (2 hours)

  • Exploring the Partial Derivative Machine (Integrated PDM Lecture/Lab) FIXME – a new activity was used here and still needs to be created on the wiki. This activity included lots of small whiteboard questions and so forth that need to be expanded on above.
  • PDM Dictionary (Lecture 25 minutes)

Energy and Integrals (50 minutes)

Derivatives and Chain Rules (2 hours)

The Elevator Cycle (30 minutes)

  • The Elevator Cycle (Integrated PDM Lecture/Lab) FIXME – a new activity was used here and still needs to be created on the wiki.
