I am teaching an intro class on engineering design. I've decided to offer an optional extra credit assignment so that students that have missed homeworks can make up some of their homework grade with a bit of extra effort. As part of their regular assignments, they've built a widget. I'd like them to test their widget under similar conditions 4-5 times and report data to me. What are some good ways I can make outright cheating on the assignment a bit harder? [more inside]

I'm taking a numerical methods class and there are all these discretization schemes of partial differential equations named after pairs of dudes and they all are kinda the same, maybe a bit different in indexes.... I'm trying to organize it all in my head, like a frat house, with the dudes that worked on the same scheme being roommates, but it seems to be taking a long time to actually "find" a place for each scheme in their "rooms" and keeping it there in a sort of visual arrangement. Test is no books no notes, and everything kinda of just jumbles inside my head right now.
I'm looking to get work as a library shelver in a county library. I've passed the minimum requirements and have moved onto the next phase- basically- the library shelver test. I have no idea what this test will require other than them handing me a stack of books and telling me to go shelve them properly. Besides being versed in the Dewey Decimal System.... what do I need to know to pass this test and not have anxiety about it going in? I realize every library system is different but I would very much like your input. [more inside]
in my previous job i worked with an emerson data acquisition and control system that was completely integrated and customisable. all facility control and data gathering was from the same software, with a customised faceplate gui. i am now at a new job that is using stand alone data takers with 30m long cables to get data. it is unstable and prone to interference and limited amount of data channels, plus no discrete outputs. is there an ideal mid strength solution, that wouldn't cost the same as the emerson system, but would be more robust and effective than a datataker?
I'm looking for a picture of a specific nuclear test in a book or other printed resource, or a hi-res photo online. The image in question is here. There seems to be conflicting information about whether this is the first nuclear test (Trinity), I really don't think it is. [more inside]
I'm working on a problem for "Inferences about the difference between two population means for independent samples: sigma 1 & 2 unknown and unequal." The final value of "test statistic t" falls in the rejection region for 95% confidence interval, but falls in the nonrejection region for 99% confidence interval. Should I perform additional calculations before rejecting my null hypothesis?

How can I help my students acquire the techniques they need to do well on the test? [more inside]

That surgery went well and he has recovered from it..but during that time the high PSA results were put on the back burner until he could get through the surgery. [more inside]
