Teaching Resources

Here are a list of some resources I’ve cobbled together for teaching in engineering/physics/math fields, mostly consisting of MATLAB Live Scripts or deployed Mathematica objects. Feel free to use them, with proper attribution, in your own teaching endeavors.

  • A mass-spring simulator designed to help students become familiar with normal modes. MATLAB Live Script here.
  • A simulator to visualize the deformation of a fluid element within a fluid flow. MATLAB Live Script here.
  • A simulator to visualize the motion of a mass suspended by a rubber band, intended to make students familiar with spring-pulley problems and when their physical assumptions fail. MATLAB Live Script here.
  • A simulator to visualize the motion of a stick-on-a-spring under the influence of gravity, intended to teach students about unpredictability in dynamics. MATLAB Live Script here.
  • A simulator to visualize the motion of a disk-in-a-pipe under the influence of gravity, intended to teach students about “rolling without slip” and its effects on motion. MATLAB Live Script here.
