4434Solving Problems with Decision Trees Lesson
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=860041
This lesson focuses on how computing decision trees are used to specify and solve problems. Computing in the Cloud Lesson
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=860034
Lesson focuses on cloud computing, another buzz word that has come up in today’s world of computers. Though there are dozens of definitions on cloud computing, there seems to be no consensus on what a cloud is. This lesson strives to help students understand the concept of cloud computing and its possibilities.Search Engines Lesson
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=860040
Lesson focuses on exploring how the development of search engines has revolutionized Internet. Students work in teams to understand the technology behind search engines and explore how they can retrieve useful information using search engines. Complexity – It's Simple Lesson
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=860042
This lesson allows students to playfully understand algorithms and complexity. Solving a Simple Maze Lesson
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=860077
Lesson focuses on algorithmic thinking and programming. Make the students aware of the beauty of simple algorithms and their implementation in real fun games.Choose Your Best Way Lesson
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=860086
Lesson focuses on how mathematic models help to solve real problems and are realized in computers. Students work in teams to build a graph model of their city map while learning how mathematic models work. Student should be encouraged to use this model to solve real problems.Give Binary a Try! Lesson
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=860043
Lesson focuses on how binary codes function and binary applications for computer engineers. The lesson offers students an activity to learn to download software and read online binary clock, and advanced students an opportunity to build one from a kit.Arduino Blink Challenge Lesson
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=860087
Lesson explores computer programming and the impact of computers on society. Students build and test a program to turn a light on and off using an Arduino board. They connect the hardware, program the code, test their system, adapt it for variations in blinking times, evaluate their results, and share observations with their class. Program Your Own Game Lesson
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=860025
Lesson focuses on how software engineers design computer games and other software. Student teams work together to develop a simple computer program using free software that is available in multiple languages. Teams evaluate the games developed by other teams and present findings to the class. This lesson is available in multiple languages (e.g. Spanish, Arabic) on www.tryengineering.org.Financial Market Regulation – Simple Circuit Breakers in Python
