# Architect’s Scale Tutorial

Material type: Simulation

Year: 2007

Authored by:

Becky Kinney

Description:

Learn how to read an architect’s scale. Tutorial includes instruction, self-tests, a demonstration and a simulated scale with practice lines to measure. Immediate feedback allows students to learn at their own pace, and the practice area provides a way to continue drawing and measuring lines for as long as is necessary.

Primary Audience: Design Students who need to use an architect’s rule

# Ball Bearing Defect Frequencies

Material type: Simulation

Year: 2005

Authored by:

Bill Fagerstrom, Becky Kinney

## Description

This simulation is used to demonstrate how vibrational patterns are impacted by defects in different portions of a ball bearing.

Primary Audience: College, Mechanical Engineering

# Circuit Board Simulator

Material type: Simulation

Year: 2000

Authored by:

George Watson, Becky Kinney

## Description

This simulation allows students to build a virtual circuit using resistors and batteries from the file drawers. Users can also measure resistance, voltage and current by clicking on any element within the completed circuit. A great way to explore.

Primary Audience: High School, College Introductory Electronics

# Binomial Distribution

Material type: Simulation

Year: 2000

Authored by:

Becky Kinney

## Description

Marbles bounce down an array of pegs. The resulting binomial distribution is displayed graphically in real time. A control panel allows the size of the array, and the probability of a bounce to the right to be varied.

A short introduction has been added in the form of a series of multiple choice questions with instructions.

Primary Audience: High School, College Social Sciences
