Mr. Richard Jakubowski

A brief rundown of my background is as follows:

  • BS in Electrical Engineering – NJIT.
  • BA in Mathematical Sciences – Kean University.
  • 15+ years teaching electronic technicians at various trade schools.  Taught both theory and hands-on laboratory applications.  Authored two textbooks/workbooks on Electricity and Electronics.
  • Taught Middle/ High School Mathematics in public schools for 5 years.
  • Technical Training Specialist for Postal Technicians.
  • Robotics Coordinator for M.E.T.S. Charter School.
  • 3 years experience teaching AP Physics & Engineering Design Process at Mother Seton Regional High School.

Courses taught 2019-20 school year.

GIANCOLI TEXTBOOK (7th. Edition) CHAPTERS:

Note that the chapters listed below are for the 7th Edition not the 6th edition book that we use for the course.  However, the 7th Edition varies very little from the latter and in some areas enhances the learning by including additional examples and problem.  I will do my best to indicate where the differences exist and prompt students of the differences, particularly with assigned homework problems.

Legos ACTIVITY SHEET

 

EARTHQUAKE PROOF HOUSING PROJECT

Students will follow the Engineering Design Process (EDP) to create models of buildings, test them on a “shake table”, analyze results, modify accordingly, and create a marketing “pitch” based on their models, results, and the perceived “fit” with local culture and needs.

Due Date:  Wednesday, January 10, 2017
