    A story of my personal involvement in a rapid evolution of high-frequency electrical communication that began forty years ago and led to the merger of Kelvin's transmission-line theory, which had been the cornerstone of the telephone engineer's thinking, and more inclusive Maxwell's field theory is described. The early sections of this paper describe the state of electrical theories in those days,... View full abstract»

    The objective of this paper is to evaluate from experimental data and observation five theoretical features of F. S. Keller's Personalized-Proctorial System of Instruction (PSI) for engineering education. This system was tested in courses in nuclear, mechanical, electrical, and operations research engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. We have found that students easily take advantage o...

    Many opinions on teaching and teacher-student relations are published. In some of these pronouncements all changes and innovations in procedures, texts, and presentations are considered good. The following observations on a small segment of the overall teaching problem are offered, and results of one experiment presented, as still another input which-as many others-needs further study for verifica...

    This paper presents an empirical demonstration of the efficiency with which an academic performance criterion (grade-point average) has been predicted in the past and notes the dearth of theory testing in educational research concerning such a criterion. The unimaginative and myopic nature of prior approaches is discussed and a comprehensive paradigm reflecting the complexity of academic behavior ... View full abstract»

  • Superproblems: A New Program at Swarthmore College

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):37 - 40
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (822 KB)

    The Department of Engineering at Swarthmore began a new program in the summer of 1970 under which a team of undergraduates examines a major technological problem-complex, or "superproblem." The superproblem first undertaken is entitled Electric Power for the Future. The program started as a summer study project; it is continuing as a project with academic credit during the school year. The program... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1668 KB)

    This paper attempts to present more clearly the principles underlying the definition of a system of electrical units. First, it recalls briefly how fundamental and derived quantities are defined and how fundamental quantities are chosen. The main laws of electromagnetism are then written in a general form using the least number of arbitrary constants, namely three, compatible with the assumption t... View full abstract»

    The details and philosophy of an interdisciplinary course that combines bioelectrical measurements and research preparation are described. This lecture-laboratory course is offered to students in bioengineering, electrical engineering, and biology in an attempt to provide some of the modern tools, techniques, and experiences necessary to perform quantitative experimental research. A systematic app... View full abstract»

  • An Electrical Network-Probability Theory Analogy

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):60 - 63
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1382 KB)

    An analogy is developed between a familiar electric network and the central limit theorem of probability theory. A laboratory experiment or demonstration which can enhance the students understanding of both problems is described. Finally, the digital filter analogy is discussed. It is shown that the experiment has both theoretical and practical value. View full abstract»

  • Analog Mapping of Poissonian Fields

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):64 - 66
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (503 KB)

    A process is described for analog mapping of Poissonian fields which is well suited to the teaching laboratory. A capacitively coupled mapping system is employed in the form of a sandwich consisting of conducting silver paint, a thin tape as dielectric, and conducting paper. The technique allows the field from a single-source or from multiple-sources to be plotted. Field density information may be... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses how the University of California at Santa Barbara on-line system can be used in the teaching of complex variables. This system, a descendant of the Culer-Fried system, with its speed and versatility gives the teacher as well as the student a rapid means of solution and visualization of answers. Several examples with figures are presented that demonstrate the role and effective... View full abstract»
