    do, then work on the harder problems
   Skim test first, to see what will basically
    be covered

    7.6 Making the Most of Your
   Don‘t wait until the end of the semester
    to go for help
   If you make yourself visible in class and
    during office hours, the professor may
    remember you while grading
   Teaching is not professors only
    responsibility, often the are researchers
    and advisors as well, so give them the
    benefit of the doubt
7.7 Learning Styles
   Each person‘s brain is unique to him or her
   Proper nutrition, stress, drugs and alcohol are
    some of the factors that can affect a
    developing brain
   Each person is born with all the brain cells, or
    neurons, they will ever have (estimated at
    180 billion neurons)

7.7 Learning Styles
   None of us is ever too old or too dumb
    to learn something new!
   People think and memorize in several
    different ways

7.7 Learning Styles
   Memorizing:
       Refers to how people assimilate new
        material to existing knowledge and
       How we accommodate, or change our
        previous way of organizing material

7.7 Learning Styles
   Thinking:
       Refers to how we see the world, approach
        problems and use the different parts of our

       TAKE Labs!
       Make connections between what is being
        said and what you‘ve done in the past
       Talk to professor about ways to gain more
        hands-on experience, such as volunteering
        in his/her lab
       Use models or experiments at home

        Problem Solving

8.1 Introduction
   Problem solving requires many ―tools‖
    and skills. Make sure that you have
    them, or at least know where to find
    them and how to use them

8.2 Analytic and Creative
Problem Solving

    where there is one right answer
   Creative problem solving has no right

8.2 Analytic and Creative
Problem Solving
   Steps that typically help w/ problem
       Make a model/figure
       Identify necessary, desired and given info
       Work backwards from answers
       Restate problem in one‘s own words
       Check the solution and validate it

8.3 Analytic Problem Solving

       Define the problem and create a problem
       Diagram and describe the problem
       Apply theory and any known equations
       Simplify assumptions
       Solve necessary problems
       Verify accuracy of answer to desired level
8.4 Creative Problem Solving

   Visualization and Graphics

9.1-9.2 Visualization
   Visualization is often used as a mode of
    communication between engineers
   Sketches, tables, graphs, computer
    generated drawings, blueprints are
    various ways in which engineers
    communicate via visual mediums

    9.3 Sketching
   Although most final drawings are computer
    generated, initial and freehand sketches are
    vital to the design process
   Freehand does not mean messy. Sketches
    should display an adequate amount of detail,
    and any pertinent notes/comments pertaining
    to the drawing
       For instance, if a line is supposed to be straight,
        make it as straight as possible. A square will not
        pass for a circle.

    9.7 Graphical Communication
   Oblique and isometric drawings are 3D
    and general
   Orthographic drawings are 2D, more
    detailed, and often have dimensions for
    the part
