ABSTRACT OF PROGRAM
STEER Program Hypotheses
1. In the Digital Signaling Processing Laboratory, teachers learn to construct virtual instruments that process, filter, digitize and display data and sound. The teachers were trained on the new LabVIEW 7.0 program to construct a virtual equalizer that controlled a CD playerís volume and frequency outputs through a computerís soundcard.
2. Learning this process will result in the teachers utilizing the program in the classroom to explain sound waves and frequencies and to visualize the digital process of sound transmission. The result of this, for students, will be an introduction to Electrical Engineering, an increased knowledge of digitized sound waves and enhance interest in engineering, science and technology.
