operational amplifier model,and shows how it is represented by a Bode plot equation. This step shows the students how toalgebraically prove the roll off rate on the Bode plot. Lab procedures are included to test andverify the frequency response of a compensated operational amplifier. The closed loop frequencyresponse is then proved algebraically for both the inverting and the non-inverting configurations,and lab procedures are included to test them. The third section provides the overall evaluationresults of the applied lesson and the last section provides a discussion on the paper content.

section aims to make the students put together their ideas and tie themto their background knowledge to become part of its permanent knowledge.Finally, in the Reflect section, students describe the knowledge they acquired from the lab orexperiment and how they can apply it to other scenarios. Usually, students have to mention whatthey learned and how it complements something they already knew. Also, they have to sharehow their view or ideas changed after they completed the lab. Finally, sometimes, we ask theiropinion about the lab assignment; what they liked or did not like, or some ideas to improve the Spring 2017 Mid-Atlantic ASEE Conference, April 7-8, 2017 MSUlab.

The hardest portion of installationinvolved removing the bottom section of the downspout in order to slide the pre filter fitting intoplace.Spring 2017 Mid-Atlantic ASEE Conference, April 7-8, 2017 MSUThe system fit into the confined space, and did not collect unwanted bugs or rodents.

minus one would be a measure of the relative gain using the (post-pre)/pre concept.The learning assessment rubric of Highly Competent, Competent, and Needs Improvementversus Participant Deliverables was used. An improvement was observed in the grades ofdiscussion sections of lab reports. The student relative gain was about 0.2 (N = 22 and N = 20,two classes) in the assessment model using highly competent =1, competent = 0.8 and needsimprovement = 0.6). The rubric guideline is displayed in Table 1.The assessment result suggests that the modeling of liberal arts writing in the context ofdiagrammatic kinematics thinking would help students to improve on their physics lab reportwriting.

and Finite Element AnalysisIn the AISC Steel Manual [1], out of the most popular steel columns used for buildingconstructions, W14 sections were chosen for the research. The W14 sections are wide-flangeshaped steel members with a nominal depth of fourteen inches. To model the steel member,Lagrangian meshes were used for a solid mechanics analysis. To model air domain around thecolumn, Eulerian meshes were used for computational fluid dynamic analysis. See Figure 1 foran overall model view. Figure 1.
