Animation (reload page if not loading)

Screencasts are short screen captures, usually of a tablet PC, with instructor narration. They are solutions to example problems, explanations of concepts, software tutorials, introduction to topics, descriptions of diagrams, and reviews of material. Screencasts supplement textbooks, classes, and office hours and allow students to learn at their own pace. Many of the screencasts are organized by textbook table of contents found on each topic page. We have over 1,400 screencasts.

Interactive screencasts present a multiple choice question where the viewer chooses an answer within the video. The video response guides the user to the correct answer and explanation. For more information, see our interactive screencasts on our YouTube channel.

Interactive Simulations
Wolfram Mathematica-based simulations (Wolfram Demonstrations) are available for a number of chemical engineering topics. These simulations allow the user to determine how system behavior changes when variables are changed using sliders. The simulations should be downloaded and run using the free Wolfram CDF player; a Mathematica software license is not required. They no longer run on browsers. For information about the simulations and their use, go to Wolfram Demonstrations. We have over 145 interactive simulations

Student Resources

This section contains other suggestions on how to study/how to learn and screencasts that demonstrate how to use POLYMATH software to solve chemical engineering problems. The POLYMATH files that are used in the screencasts are also available.

ConcepTests Animation
Instructor Resources

ConcepTests challenge students with qualitative questions that are not answered by memorization. Used in tandem with peer instruction, ConcepTests can dramatically improve functional understanding while allowing instructors to gauge students understanding immediately and tailor their instruction accordingly.

Course packages provide digital OneNote based resources containing class notes, ConcepTests, reading assignments, screencast recommendations, homework problems and exam questions. They are available for Thermodynamics and Materials & Energy Balances.

InstructorsCheck out the resources to request access to our 1800+ ConcepTest inventory or course packages.
