Computers in Education
Use of a computer project to teach design of simple mechanisms as a part of a traditional mechanisms course is discussed. Multiple software platforms were implemented, with sample output from each individual platform, including MATLAB source code is included in the results. Effect on student achievement in the course was compared to a realization prior to the implementation of the project. The work of a student who chose to implement the project using the PYTHON computer language is highlighted, with PYTHON code included in the work.
