PRINCIPLES OF ENGINEERING will help your students better understand the engineering concepts, mathematics, and scientific principles that form the foundation of the Project Lead the Way® (PLTW) Principles Of Engineering course. Important concepts and processes are explained throughout using full-color photographs and illustrations. Appropriate for high school students, the mathematics covered includes algebra and trigonometry. The strong pedagogical features to aid comprehension include: Case Studies, boxed articles such as Fun Facts and Points of Interest, Your Turn activities, suggestions for Off-Road Exploration, connections to STEM concepts, Career Profiles, Design Briefs, and example pages from Engineers’ Notebooks. Each chapter concludes with questions designed to test your students’ knowledge of information presented in the chapter, along with a hands-on challenge or exercise that compliments the content and lends itself to exploration in the classroom. Key vocabulary terms that align with those contained in the PLTW POE course are highlighted throughout the book and emphasized in margin definitions.
