Hi prospective students, I have been teaching courses related to engineering, math and physics for the past twenty years, and I have worked with college students (freshman through senior) and high school students (grade 10-12). Specific subjects include algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, differential equations, statics, mechanics, dynamic systems, C programming, Matlab/Simulink. In addition to teaching, I have mentored/coached two high school students by having them work on real... [more]
All of my degrees are in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I have been dealing with differential equations for the last thirty years. I have taught a college engineering class in this subject for the past 5 years. The best way to learn differential equations is to know how to apply to a real problem. I also teach how to solve differential equations numerically using Matlab/Simulink.
All my degrees are in Electrical and Computer Engineering (PhD). I have been programming in C for the past twenty years off and on, a lot of applications are associated with hardware interface and embedded real-time systems, such as Arduino C and Dynamic C. I have been mentoring four high school students, and two of them are using Arduino on their chosen projects, such as underwater scooter and automatic archery system. To me applying to a real world project is the best way to learn and retain a programming language.
All of my degrees are in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I have been using Matlab for the last twenty years. I have taught a college engineering class in this subject for the past 5 years. The best way to learn Matlab/Simulink is to use it to solve real world problems. I use Matlab / Simulink to solve many differential equations and optimization problems. I also teach how to use Matlab to create graphical user interface, and interface to Arduino micro-controller.
