Paper: Shackelford-based Courses and CES EduPack

Materials Science and Engineering can be taught without textbooks, however textbooks like those written by James Shackelford, Askeland and Fulay, William Callister, and so on can strengthen a course, significantly enhancing its structure and quality. Introduction to Materials Science for Engineers, by James Shackelford is one such text; using what is often called a science-led approach over a wide range of different materials classes. The CES EduPack is designed to complement and support teaching based around all the major textbooks for Materials, for both science-led and design-led approaches. In this paper we will discuss how courses based on Shackelford's textbook can use CES EduPack. The paper will show explicitly how the two resources can work together to provide an enhanced learning experience. The examples given here however, are also valid for most of the other leading textbooks in the field.
