CourseBuilder for Structural Design Instant Access Code 1st Edition

Thomas Burns

  • Published

Overview

Make an impact in your course! Partnering with the Associated Schools of Construction, Delmar, Cengage Learning brings you this unique, web-based collection of lessons. COURSEBUILDER FOR STRUCTURAL DESIGN focuses on applied structural design of the three most common construction materials: structural steel, reinforced concrete and wood. Each lesson uses high-resolution color images, videos and animations that help students visualize these components and understand the way each material behaves in an on-site setting. Self quizzing, end of lesson questions and note taking ability are all built into these lessons to improve comprehension, and with an internet connection, students can access their lessons from anywhere. And, by being able to pick and choose which lessons to use, COURSEBUILDER FOR STRUCTURAL DESIGN enables instructors to tailor their course to the specific needs of their course.
