" This is the second undergraduate design studio. It introduces a full range of architectural ideas and issues through drawing exercises, analyses of precedents, and explored design methods. Students will develop design skills by conceptualizing and representing architectural ideas and making aesthetic judgments about building design. Discussions regarding architecture's role in mediating culture, nature and technology will help develop the students' architectural vocabulary."
Biology 2e is designed to cover the scope and sequence requirements of a typical two-semester biology course for science majors. The text provides comprehensive coverage of foundational research and core biology concepts through an evolutionary lens. Biology includes rich features that engage students in scientific inquiry, highlight careers in the biological sciences, and offer everyday applications. The book also includes various types of practice and homework questions that help students understand—and apply—key concepts. The 2nd edition has been revised to incorporate clearer, more current, and more dynamic explanations, while maintaining the same organization as the first edition. Art and illustrations have been substantially improved, and the textbook features additional assessments and related resources.
By the end of this section, you will be able to do the following:
Identify the shared characteristics of the natural sciences
Summarize the steps of the scientific method
Compare inductive reasoning with deductive reasoning
Describe the goals of basic science and applied science
This is an entire course/e-textbook that was formerly the Boundless Business text that was purchased by Lumen Learning and maintained in its current form.
The material presented in this resource is generally accurate especially considering that it reflects standard business practices and concepts that have changed little. A few of the examples given in the text could be a bit dated, which indicates that its utility may come from linking to specific parts of the course rather than using it as an entire textbook substitute. There does not appear to be a great deal of bias with this work, since its positioning is relatively generic to the facts and figures and it typically steers clear of opinions and judgments. An instructor could easily remix this with more current, relevant, and culturally deeper examples.
The text includes detailed images and graphs that are well done and help drive home visual concepts. It is limited in terms of interactivity and is still a text heavy presentation. This material is published as CC-Sharealike so it can be remixed but not revised. Lumen has taken some responsibility for the fact that it can still be edited but likely not updated to increase its currency. Since Lumen owns this material, it is likely to be here in this state for a long while.
Most of the material is relevant to any Introductory Business course with concepts that would apply for a long period of time. This material generally ages well, it just needs to be paired with continually more updated and relevant examples as technologies and markets change. Student could likely meet their learning goals and interests with this material as a support (curated by the instructor) to an existing course but it likely does not standalone as a full course resource. It seems most useful for providing depth to key points with direct links to sub-pages within this course.

Deze cursus geeft een introductie op de massa- en energienetwerken die de ruggengraat vormen van de economie. De belangrijkste energie- en industriesystemen worden vanuit verschillende perspectieven besproken.
- Kaartkennis van energie- & industriesystemen, met name in Nederland
- Voorraden en stromen, elektriciteitsinfrastructuur, elektriciteitstransport, aardgasinfrastructuur, drink- en afvalwater, industrie, warmte- en CO2-netwerken, toekomstige energie- & industriesystemen
- Vraag- en aanbodfluctuaties, balanshandhaving
This survey should give you enough knowledge to appreciate the impact of chemistry in everyday life and, if necessary, prepare you for additional instruction in chemistry. Throughout each chapter, I present two features that reinforce the theme of the textbookthat chemistry is all around you. The first is a feature titled, appropriately, Chemistry Is Everywhere. Chemistry Is Everywhere focuses on the personal hygiene products that you may use every morning: toothpaste, soap, and shampoo, among others. These products are chemicals, arent they? Ever wonder about the chemical reactions that they undergo to give you clean and healthy teeth or shiny hair? I will explore some of these chemical reactions in future chapters. But this feature makes it clear that chemistry is, indeed, everywhere. The other feature focuses on chemistry that you likely indulge in every day: eating and drinking. In the Food and Drink App, I discuss how the chemistry of the chapter applies to things that you eat and drink every day. Carbonated beverages depend on the behavior of gases, foods contain acids and bases, and we actually eat certain rocks. (Can you guess which rocks without looking ahead?) Cooking, eating, drinking, and metabolismwe are involved with all these chemical processes all the time. These two features allow us to see the things we interact with every day in a new lightas chemistry.
Doelstelling van dit college is een introductie te geven in de theorie van de Thermodynamica, een van de fundamentele werktuigbouwkunde vakken. De Thermodynamica behandelt energie vraagstukken en relaties tussen de eigenschappen van materialen. In dit college wordt voor een ingenieurs aanpak van de Thermodynamica gekozen: onderwerp van studie zijn systemen en hun interactie met de omgeving. Naast gesloten systemen krijgen open systemen veel aandacht. Thermodynamica wordt, in combinatie met stromingsleer en warmte- en stofoverdracht, ingezet om bijvoorbeeld automotoren, turbines, compressoren, pompen, elektriciteit opwekkinginstallaties, cryogenische-, koel- en klimaat-installaties en duurzame energieconversie installaties te analyseren en ontwerpen. De beginselen van de Thermodynamica maken het mogelijk om de ontwerpen van energie gerelateerde werktuigbouwkundige apparaten en systemen te optimaliseren voor het betreffende doel.
