Attendance:

Because of the nature of the concepts to be discussed and because you are an integral part of the class and its success, you will need to attend every class.  If  an emergency prevents you from attending a class, you are responsible for finding out what you missed and you are responsible for obtaining notes from another student.  This, however, cannot “make-up” for the lost experience.

 

Reading Assignments and Homework Problems:

This is a problem solving oriented subject.  The more problems that you attempt to solve the better you will become at solving them.  Even though the reading assignments are short their content is intense.  Understanding the concepts is of vital importance to obtaining the skill you need to solve the problems.

 

Evaluation and Grading:

There will be 4 evaluations and one final.  The final counts as 2 evaluations.

Evaluations -- 10 points each for a total of 40 points.

The final  -- 10 points.

There will be 12 homework assignments which include in-class participation.

Homework -- 2 points for each assignment, for a total of 21 points.

Lab work   which demands a complete lab report for each lab  31 points.

 

You can score a possible 102 points.  90 or  more  points equals a grade of 4.0 for an “A”

 

This course will not be graded on a curve.

 

Extra Credit:

Optional extra points can be obtained by doing some problems by writing a computer program to obtain a solution.  These problems are marked with a “C “at the end of each chapter.  The number of points for these problems depend on the problems difficulty and your programming approach.  Each member of this class has been given access to the computer system on campus for the duration of this class.

 

Optional extra points can be obtained by doing special group or individual special projects in the mechanics lab.  The number of points given  for these projects depend on how well the project is executed and how well it is presented to the class.  Please note that this is not a course that includes a lab.

 

A grade point of 4.0 can be obtained without doing any of the above optional extra point work.
