Test and Evaluation (T&E) is a fundamental aspect of developing a new product. This chapter identifies how Live, Virtual, and Constructive models / simulations can be used for T&E, especially for a system-of-systems in a network-centric environment.
This lesson plan introduces the students to the concept of numerical integration. The Euler numerical integration method is then used to simulate the trajectory of a model rocket to predict maximum height.
This biology unit integrates modeling and simulation into lesson activities to teach the engineering design process to students. It also provides students the opportunity to apply previously mastered biology content to real-world scenarios.
This chapter describes a 2-3 week unit featuring a simulation that allows students to follow water from pristine and logging forests through residential and commercial areas into wetlands and urban areas.
This chapter gives an extended lesson plan of trajectory optimization by designing a new route plan for a Roomba, a commercial robotic vacuum cleaner.
A joint collaboration between NASA and CK-12, the purpose of this FlexBook® resource is to provide high school teachers with an introduction to the main principles of modeling and simulation as used in science and engineering as well as a set of lesson plans.
