Simulations for Digital Electronics Using Electronic Workbench

This lab manual provides "hands-on" experience in using the virtual instruments of "Electronic Workbench" to simulate the operation of many typical digital circuits -- from basic logic gates (AND, OR, inverter) through decoders, oscillators, D/A converters, and others. It features clear, multi-step procedures supported with screen shots for each step, troubleshooting exercises, critical thinking questions, and an accompanying disk with all necessary files. Each laboratory contains: Objectives; a summary of the relevant theory; a multi-step Procedure containing schematic figures for the circuits under examination; Tables for measured data; a troubleshooting exercise; critical-thinking questions. Features many screen shots that show exactly what to expect. An accompanying diskette contains all of the circuit files necessary to run each experiment. For anyone interested in learning how to use Electronic Workbench to analyze digital circuits.

Activities for Devloping Mathematical Thinking: Exploring, Inventing, and Discovering Mathematics [With CDROM]

Filled with over 100 inquiry-based activities, "Activities for Mathematical Thinking "addresses the changing ways in which students learn and teachers teach mathematics. The emphasis is on hands-on learning and an inductive, rather than deductive, approach to mathematics. Organized in 11 sections, activities range from understanding number systems to developing geometric thinking to exploring part-whole relationships. While diverse in content and complexity, all activities emphasize inquiry and process and include recommended grade levels as well as NCTM process and content standards. Worksheets and handouts are provided in the back of the workbook to help support many of the activities.

Active Experiences for Active Children: Science

Part of a series of texts, "Active Experiences for Active Children: Science, Third Edition, " is unique to the market by providing a theoretical foundation for teaching science to preschoolers and primary-grade children alongside meaningful, standards-based, constructivist, hands-on learning "experiences" to guide teachers in their practice. Organized around the National Science Education Standards and the Benchmarks for Science Literacy, the textconsists of clear, concise, usable guides for planning meaningful learning experiences in science for children in childcare settings, preschool programs, Head Start and other federally funded programs, and kindergarten. Primary-grade children should be engaged in active experiential learning as well, and each experience is extended to the early primary grades (grades 1-3). The experiences in this book are meaningful because they: - are grounded in children's interests and needs in their here-and-now world.- have integrity in terms of content key to science.- involve children in group work, investigations, or projects based on inquiry learning.- have continuity: One experience builds on another, forming a complete, coherent, integrated learning curriculum for young children as well as connecting the early childhood setting to children's homes and communities. - provide time and opportunity for children to think and reflect on their experiences.- provide the teacher with the opportunity to document and assess children's learning. Organized to address a variety of audiences, the text is formatted in two parts: Part One offers a foundation for young children and science; Part Two offers thematic based units full of resources for teachers, teacher strategies, and inquiry-based experiences for children. The content has been expanded in the third edition to include a new chapter on engaging children with the natural world (Chapter 14), references to the most recent reports on science education from the National Academies, updated and expanded lists of books and Web sites for children and adults, and new activities. This highly- readable, user-friendly series text is formatted with an engaging, conversational style that will connect and resonate with its varied readers.
