Sleep really is important!
management is also very important.
This site provides some useful links on time management.
It's not about how smart you are; it's how hard you work!
This is just a preview of the Scientific American article on the
value of effort.
- What You'll Wish You'd
A Long "Speech" to Students by Paul Graham (good advice
for anyone really)
- Test Prep Review
Free evaluation tests on many subjects and links to tutorials for
help; advice on test taking, too!
Online resources for studying in college
Lots of links to
information on studying in college (studying tips, time management
help, how to take notes, and much more)
- Pathways to
A site for finding STEM programs, funding, mentoring, and resources
for students of all ages--for example, undergraduate summer research
opportunities, graduate fellowships, and postdoctoral positions.
Scads of Data Science Reference Sheets!
A blog post at Data Science Central, the online resource for big data
practitioners, that includes 24 cheat sheets on data science, R,
Python, Excel, and machine learning. It also includes links to
CS and Programming
EM and Other Topics
A nice site that allows you to change
parameters and see what happens at the load end of a transmission
an animation of both the reflected, transmitted, and standing waves.
There are a couple of other nice features as well. Check it out!
A Tutorial on Smith Charts
Pete Bevelacqua is a former
student in EE 331 who now works at Apple. He's a fan of Smith
- Smith Chart
lectures on YouTube by Prof. Cynthia Furse
This is the
first of a series of short lectures on Smith Charts. To see the
rest, do a search on cfurse and then look for the ECE 3300 Lecture
12, 12b, and 13 series.
Use these applets to play with
cylindrical and spherical coordinates!
Propagating Plane Wave
A very helpful site for visualizing
plane wave propagation.
Mathematica EE videos
Some of these videos might help you
visualize topics in EE. If you have Mathematica, you can download the
entire notebook. If you don't, you can still check out the Web
- EM and
circuits applets by Paul
Lots and lots of Java applets to help you visualize EM,
circuits, vector fields, and more!

- Simulation of
earth's magnetic field.
This computer simulation by C. Gissinger shows the
"dynamo effect" in the Earth's liquid outer core. This effect
generates the Earth's magnetic field (shown here by looping
lines). The radial component of the magnetic field is represented
at the surface of the model, which corresponds to the core-mantle
boundary ["When North Heads South," Physics World, 25(3),
