Engineering SW Teaches Dynamics
Multimedia Engineering Dynamics uses visualization, multiple representation and simulations to help students develop intuition for solving engineering dynamics problems. Through 45 real-world engineering dynamics problems, the program allows students to explore major concepts at their own pace. The problems are presented using text, graphics, audio and animation. Each problem also contains a simulation that models the problem, created with Working Model, enabling one to dynamically manipulate physical systems and see them work. The program is designed to complement any engineering dynamics course and can be used with any textbook, lecture or lab activity.
