Abstract

A new project for the enhancement of undergraduate engineering courses via the use of interactive learning and computers in the classroom is being developed at Penn State University. This project involves the introduction of teamwork, projects, simulation, visualization, and experiment in a course traditionally containing none of these. This paper will describe the Interactive Mechanics/Dynamics concept, our efforts to implement it, and some of the issues we have had to overcome during its implementation.
