Combining Interactive Thermodynamics Simulations with Screencasts and ConcepTests

  • John Falconer Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering University of Colorado Boulder Boulder, CO 80309-0596

Abstract

 

 More than 40 interactive Mathematica simulations were prepared for chemical engineering thermodynamics, screencasts were prepared that explain how to use each simulation, and more than 100 ConcepTests were prepared that utilize the simulations. They are located on www.LearnChemE.com. The purposes of these simulations are to clarify concepts and help students understand diagrams. Neither knowledge of Mathematica software nor a Mathematica license is required to use them.
