Course Reflection

Registering for this class Writing for Engineers, I had the impression that it was going to be another boring class that I was required to take. Coming into this class, I really didn’t want to be there as it was a morning class in which I was still half asleep, but I strived though it anyways.

When I was handed my first assignment the interview report, Continue reading “Course Reflection”

Project Proposal: Bathroom Renovation

Intro

The average person goes to the bathroom around six times a day; considering we spend most of our time in school, a clean, and functioning bathroom is a necessity. With the large amount of students in the school keeping all the bathrooms clean would be unreasonable, but the most frequently used bathrooms should be kept clean and functioning at all times. Some of these bathrooms include the first floor NAC bathrooms and the first floor Marshack bathrooms. Continue reading “Project Proposal: Bathroom Renovation”

Interviewing an Electrical Engineer:Eric Janssen

As an electrical engineer, I get asked a lot “So you’re going to major in electrical engineering to change lightbulbs?” Eric Janssen is an electrical engineer working for the company AECOM right now for the past four years. It was unplanned for him to go into the electrical engineering field because he had a degree in computer engineering. Eric attended Hartford College and h bounced around majors in college, starting from majoring in mechanical engineering in his freshmen year then going into computer engineering. Eric didn’t originally plan on working as an electrical engineer but he started to work as one when his career took off.

Probability in Rolling two Die

Abstract

Dice, usually thrown in a pair have a total of thirty six outcomes from (1, 1), (1, 2)… all the way to (6, 6). There are many possible outcomes, but some of them appear more frequent than others. An example would be seven, many numbers add up to seven like a five and two, four and three, six and one, but numbers like two only have one possible outcome and that is a one and a one.  The probability of rolling the two die together was tested, and out of one hundred times rolled the percent that a two appeared was indeed lower as it came up only once of the one hundred throws. Whereas the number seven came up twenty-five times out of the hundred throws. These results prove that there are some numbers that have a higher percentage of showing up then others when rolling two dice.

Transformers

A transformer is an electrical device that transfers electrical energy between two or more circuits through electromagnetic induction. The electricity that is carried through the power lines are at 400,000 to 750,000 volts, but the voltage that we use at home is typically at 110 to 230 volts. Using the power that came out of the power line would make all the appliances instantly explode. Using a transformer, it can lower the voltage so that it is usable in our homes.

Richard Hunt, most known for his sculptures was also an incredible painter. Some of his paintings such as Untitled (1965), shows some of the same abstract styles shown his Hunt’s sculptures. Other paintings shown in the Stud Continue reading “Nature’s Work”

She’s Lion

 

Thomas Jefferson once said “He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time deprives all its good dispositions.” Continue reading “She’s Lion”

Portfolio Self-Assessment

Transitioning from a high school English class to a college level class was a big step for me. From my experience in high school English classes I did enough just to pass, and I never felt that my writing was good enough to really get those high grades. Going through this English 11000 course had allowed my writing skills to flourish and reflecting on my previous writing assignments I can see much improvement throughout the course. Some of the improvement I saw was writing better introductions and adding more details into my writing. Although there was some improvement in my writing, there is always room for more like using a wider range of complex vocabulary.

Destruction of Six Flags

Amusement parks are where children go to have the fun during the summer before another torturous school year begins. Right before kids could have one last chance to go to the Six Flags near New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina hit. The Six Flags out up a “closed for the storm” sign, this soon became the iconic sign of the abandoned Six Flags and has yet to change years after Hurricane Katrina hit.
