Virtual Materials Science and Engineering (VMSE) offers powerful capabilities for molecule visualization.

VMSE is a unique tool for visualizing molecules and manipulating them in 3-D. Interactive simulations and animations enhance the learning of key concepts in materials science and engineering (e.g., crystal structures, crystallographic planes/directions, and dislocations). It also includes a comprehensive materials property database.

Animated Figures give students extra resources.

Approximately 30 animated figures reinforce conceptual understanding and problem solving.

Tutorial videos improve studying and retention.

These videos provide real-time explanations of some of the toughest concepts in this course.

    What’s New

  • ORION Foundations module that provides just-in-time support on selected pre-requisite topics
  • Approximately 25 new video solutions
  • QuickStart Assignments for each chapter that make course set-up a snap
  • Approximately 150-200 new algorithmic automatically-graded problems
  • Tighter tolerances on problems that require reading values from a graph to reduce student confusion about “correct” answers being marked wrong
  • Student practice modules include:
    • Approximately 100 Check Your Understanding questions
    • Approximately 100 automatically-graded problems and the ability to check their work with official step-by-step solutions (text or video format)
