Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook – Airframe (FAA-H-8083-31B)

Copyright Year: 2023

Contributor: Federal Aviation Administration

Publisher: Federal Aviation Administration

License: CC0

The Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook—Airframe (FAA-H-8083-31B) is one of a series of three handbooks for persons preparing for certification as an airframe or powerplant mechanic. This handbook provides basic information on principles, fundamentals, and technical procedures in the subject matter areas relating to the airframe rating. It is designed to aid students enrolled in a formal course of instruction, as well as the individual who is studying on their own. Since the knowledge requirements for the airframe and powerplant ratings closely parallel each other in some subject areas, the chapters which discuss fire protection systems and electrical systems contain some material which is also duplicated in the Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook—Powerplant (FAA-H-8083-32B). This handbook contains information on airframe construction features, assembly and rigging, fabric covering, structural repairs, and aircraft welding. The handbook also contains an explanation of the units that make up the various airframe systems. Because there are so many different types of aircraft in use today, it is reasonable to expect that differences exist in airframe components and systems. To avoid undue repetition, the practice of using representative systems and units is carried out throughout the handbook. Subject matter treatment is from a generalized point of view and should be supplemented by reference to manufacturers’ manuals or other textbooks if more detail is desired. This handbook is not intended to replace, substitute for, or supersede official regulations or manufacturers’ instructions. Occasionally the word “must” or similar language is used where the desired action is deemed critical. The use of such language is not intended to add to, interpret, or relieve a duty imposed by Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR).

Linear Transformations on Vector Spaces

Copyright Year: 2023

Contributors: Kaschner and Russell

Publisher: PALNI

License: CC BY

Linear Transformations on Vector Spaces serves primarily as a textbook for undergraduate Linear Algebra courses. While standard Linear Algebra books begin by focusing on solving systems of linear equations and associated procedural skills, our book begins by developing a conceptual framework for the topic using the central objects, vector spaces and linear transformations. It covers the same concepts, skills, and, applications as conventional texts in a one-semester course, but students walk away with a much richer and more useful mastery of the topics. The book is structured to facilitate the implementation of the flipped classroom. The text features a continuous narrative to illuminate the big picture of the material and is written to help students develop their textbook reading skills. Also, there are “Explorations” scattered throughout each section; these are quick first examples intended for students to complete while reading before class meetings. Additional materials include section overview homework assignments and worksheets that can be used for in-class practice.

With the vast and varied technologies available to leaders, it is no doubt managing these technologies can be challenging. Yet, leaders must have a sense of which technologies will help the organization and its members to be successful. While an organizational leader does not need to be a technology expert, having an awareness of the impact technology has on an organization is important.

ReCentering Psych Stats

Copyright Year: 2023

Contributor: Bikos

Publisher: Seattle Pacific University Library

License: CC BY-NC-SA

To center a variable in regression means to set its value at zero and interpret all other values in relation to this reference point. Regarding race and gender, researchers often center male and White at zero. Further, it is typical that research vignettes in statistics textbooks are similarly seated in a White, Western (frequently U.S.), heteronormative, framework. ReCentering Psych Stats seeks provide statistics training for psychology students (undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral) in a socially and culturally responsive way. All lessons use the open-source statistics program, R (and its associated packages). Each lesson includes a chapter and screencasted lesson, features a workflow for statistical decision-making, and includes all R code necessary to conduct the statistic. Research vignettes are drawn from the published psychology literature. When possible, these articles are authored by individuals who hold identities that have, been marginalized in the scientific literature; correctly use the statistic that is being taught in the lesson; and focus on issues of justice, equity, inclusion, or and diversity. When possible, lessons include interviews with researchers from the featured vignettes. Each chapter includes suggestions for practice that are graded in complexity, such that learners can choose the degree of challenge. ReCentering Psych Stats is perpetually-in-progress; suggestions for corrections or chapters are welcomed: ReCenteringPsychStats@spu.edu
