About this collection

Appendix materials for a connexions collection used as a college course

Appendix Materials for a Connexions Collection used as a College Course is written by Kenneth Leroy Busbee, a faculty member at Houston Community College in Houston, Texas. The materials used in this collection were developed by the author for publication within the Connexions environment for the support of open courseware.

Collection contents

The collection contents were initially written in support of a computer science course taught via distance education. However, they are sufficiently universal to be valuable to all students who use computers within any college course. This includes students taking non-computer science courses and any students in a course using a learning management system (like Blackboard). Additionally, the modules dealing with "study habits" are valuable to all students in all college courses. The collection consists for four modules:

  • Show Hide File Extensions
  • Academic or Scholastic Dishonesty
  • Successful Study Habits
  • Study Habits that Build the Brain

An Internet link to either the entire collection or to individual modules is an easy way for any professor to make this material available to their students. Counseling departments may also refer students that need help with their "study habits" to the materials.

About connexions

Connexions modular content

Connexions (External Link) is an online, open access educational resource dedicated to providing high quality learning materials free online, free in printable PDF format, and at low cost in bound volumes through print-on-demand publishing. This collection is one of many collections available to Connexions users. Each collection is composed of a number of re-usable learning modules written in the Connexions XML markup language. Each module may also be re-used (or 're-purposed') as part of other collections and may be used outside of Connexions.

Re-use and customization

Under this license, any Connexions module may be used or modified for any purpose as long as proper attribution to the original author(s) is maintained. Connexions' authoring tools make re-use (or re-purposing) easy. Therefore, instructors anywhere are permitted to create customized versions of this textbook by editing modules, deleting unneeded modules, and adding their own supplementary modules. Connexions' authoring tools keep track of these changes and maintain the CC license's required attribution to the original authors. This process creates a new collection that can be viewed online, downloaded as a single PDF file, or ordered in any quantity by instructors and students as a low-cost printed textbook.

Read the book online, print the pdf, or buy a copy of the book.

To browse this collection online, visit the collection home page. You will then have three options.

  1. You may view the collection modules on-line by clicking on the "Start>>" link, which takes you to the first module in the collection. You can then navigate to the next module using "NEXT>>" and through the subsequent modules by using the "<<PREVIOUS | NEXT>>" button that is towards the upper right to move forward and backward in the collection. You can jump to any module in the collection by clicking on that module's title in the "TABLE OF CONTENTS" box on the left side of the window. If these contents are hidden, make them visible by clicking on the small triangle to the right of the "TABLE OF CONTENTS". Chapters also have a small triangle to show or hide contents.
  2. You may obtain a PDF of the entire textbook to print or view offline by clicking on the "Download PDF" link in the "Content Actions" box.
  3. You may order a bound copy of the collection (for a reasonable printing and shipping fee) by clicking on the "Order printed copy" button.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
