Establishes basic attitudes toward architectural organization and its reflection in form. Includes projects where imposed conditions of site, program, and building system emphasize the interrelationship of fundamental elements in the pattern of decision-making that constitutes architectural design. Develops presentations through drawings and models. Intended for entering M.Arch. students. Course Description This studio explores the notion of in-between by engaging several relationships; the relationship between intervention and perception, between representation and notation and between the fixed and the temporal. In the Exactitude in Science, Jorge Luis Borges tells the perverse tale of the one to one scale map, where the desire for precision and power leads to the escalating production of larger and more accurate maps of the territory. For Jean Baudrillard, "The territory no longer precedes the map nor survives it. ĺÉit is the map that precedes the territory... and thus, it would be the territory whose shreds are slowly rotting across the map." The map or the territory, left to ruin-shredding across the 'other', beautifully captures the tension between reality and representation. Mediating between collective desire and territorial surface, maps filter, create, frame, scale, orient, and project. A map has agency. It is not merely representational but operational, the experience and discursive potential of this process lies in the reciprocity between the representation and the real. It is in-between these specific sets of relationships that this studio positions itself.

Students learn that ordinary citizens, including students like themselves, can make meaningful contributions to science through the concept of "citizen science." First, students learn some examples of ongoing citizen science projects that are common around the world, such as medical research, medication testing and donating idle computer time to perform scientific calculations. Then they explore Zooniverse, an interactive website that shows how research in areas from marine biology to astronomy leverage the power of the Internet to use the assistance of non-scientists to classify large amounts of data that is unclassifiable by machines for various reasons. To conclude, student groups act as engineering teams to brainstorm projects ideas for their own town that could benefit from community help, then design conceptual interactive websites that could organize and support the projects.

" This is an advanced course on modeling, design, integration and best practices for use of machine elements such as bearings, springs, gears, cams and mechanisms. Modeling and analysis of these elements is based upon extensive application of physics, mathematics and core mechanical engineering principles (solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, manufacturing, estimation, computer simulation, etc.). These principles are reinforced via (1) hands-on laboratory experiences wherein students conduct experiments and disassemble machines and (2) a substantial design project wherein students model, design, fabricate and characterize a mechanical system that is relevant to a real world application. Students master the materials via problems sets that are directly related to, and coordinated with, the deliverables of their project. Student assessment is based upon mastery of the course materials and the student's ability to synthesize, model and fabricate a mechanical device subject to engineering constraints (e.g. cost and time/schedule)."

Student and Teacher Project files for Global Business Project from Cengage, Principles of Business
Students will explore vacation destinations around the world to develop an understanding of global trade, comparative advantage, exchange rates, and the value of the dollar in other countries. Each team will conduct thorough research of multiple vacation destinations and then select one that team members believe would be an unusual, educational, and highly economical destination for student groups. The team will then develop a website, digital poster, or other deliverable that creatively explains its recommended vacation destination, the exchange rate, two examples of comparative advantage that the destination country enjoys, and expenses incurred during the week-long vacation. The attached project document (found in the Resource Library) includes step-by-step instructions, templates, briefings, resources, and rubrics to help in executing this project. A PowerPoint to help introduce the project is also available in the Resource Library. Driving Question: What would be the most economical, unique, and educational travel destination for students? Timeframe: 2 weeks
This lesson module guides students through the step-by-step process of identifying resources for a project. The lesson module contains a student narrative, discussion guide, individual and group activities, and a posttest with descriptive key.
" This class is a project-based introduction to the engineering of synthetic biological systems. Throughout the term, students develop projects that are responsive to real-world problems of their choosing, and whose solutions depend on biological technologies. Lectures, discussions, and studio exercises will introduce (1) components and control of prokaryotic and eukaryotic behavior, (2) DNA synthesis, standards, and abstraction in biological engineering, and (3) issues of human practice, including biological safety; security; ownership, sharing, and innovation; and ethics. Enrollment preference is given to freshmen. This subject was originally developed and first taught in Spring 2008 by Drew Endy and Natalie Kuldell. Many of Drew's materials are used in this Spring 2009 version, and are included with his permission. This OCW Web site is based on the OpenWetWare class Wiki, found at OpenWetWare: 20.020 (S09)"
This lesson plan is prepared to increase the awareness of several mental health disorders. The plan provides team-based activities and a research project for students in three class periods. In Class 1, students explore the depictions of symptoms, treatments, and causes of a mental illness in Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Yellow Wall-Paper,Ã¢â‚¬Â a short story written in late 1800s by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Students move from the past and fiction to the present. InClass 2 as they work in teams to research and gather information on a specific mental health disorder in preparation for creating a poster for the third class. In Class 3 students display their posters as well as view other teams' posters to share information and to raise awareness of various mental health disorders.

The paper helicopter experiment lab provides efficient and fun way of learning material relevant to the course. By completing the project you will become familiar with the fundamental concepts of experimental planning and gain knowledge of the theory behind two-level fractional factorial designs.
The project is designed to imitate industrial needs and requires generating real data. In order to do that you may consider using printable paper helicopter templates provided by this website. At our paper helicopter factory you may customize the helicopter design to suit your needs by setting values of factor levels and other parameters. Once done, simply fill in the design matrix and print out the PDF with the paper helicopter patterns.
Project Description: In this project, students will examine the economic benefits of several different energy industries, including petroleum, natural gas, electricity, coal, nuclear power, solar power, etc. Each team will conduct thorough research on these forms of energy and then create a website, digital poster, or other deliverable that details the economic advantages and disadvantages of each energy type. Individually, each student will write a short position paper explaining which energy industry s/he believes would be the best fit economically for their state—generating benefits such as plentiful jobs, considerable capital investment, and significant government revenue. Finally, team members will share their arguments with each other, select the energy industry that the team agrees is the best fit and provides the greatest benefits economically for the state, and present the team’s recommendation. The attached project document (found in the Resource Library) includes step-by-step instructions, templates, briefings, resources, and rubrics to help in executing this project. Driving Question Which energy industry would be the best fit economically for your state, providing plentiful jobs, considerable capital investment, and significant government revenue?
