 For students taking the Materials Science course in the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering department. This book is also suitable for professionals seeking a guided inquiry approach to materials science. This unique book is designed to serve as an active learning tool that uses carefully selected information andguided inquiryquestions.Guided inquiryhelps readers reach true understanding of concepts as they develop greater ownership over the material presented. First, background information or data is presented. Then, concept invention questions lead the students to construct their own understanding of the fundamental concepts represented. Finally, application questions provide the reader…
