Interactive Self-Study Module: Correlations
This module uses screencasts to explain correlations. It then provides example problems for the user to test themselves. Your retention of material in this modules will increase if you write down reasons for your answers to ConcepTests, and you try to solve the example problems before watching the solutions in the screencasts. We suggest using the learning resources in the following order:
- Attempt to answer the multiple-choice ConcepTest and solve the example problem before watching the screencasts.
- Watch the screencasts that describe correlations and they can be used.
- Try to solve the example problem before watching the solution in the screencast.
- Answer the ConcepTests.
- Look at the list of key points, but only after you try to list the key points yourself.
- Correlations are used to relate input to output by using experimental data.
- This module is intended as a review for Material and Energy Balances.
