Tentative Course Outline

2012 Summer
Section A
Course Objectives This is a required course for all engineering students, except for Engineering Physics students who take a different Physics course. Mechanics is one of the oldest engineering disciplines and it has traditionally been a component of all engineering programs for many years, as required for accreditation purposes. In the first year of engineering you will study the basic sciences (Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics) and Mechanics is a very important branch of Physics. Learning Mechanics will provide you with important problem-solving concepts and skills that are transferable to all other subjects in your specific program. Here you will learn the basic applications of the science of physics to the profession of engineering. Mathematics also plays a very important role in this course and here you will be able to review basic concepts and skills in algebra, trigonometry, vectors, calculus, etc and their application to engineering mechanics. To understand the basic concepts of science discussed in this course requires attendance and class participation. To develop the skills required for this and other courses requires practice and participation in tutorials and other course elements. Students wishing to enhance and polish Math and other skills will benefit from extracurricular activities offered, such as the Office Hour, in addition to the regular lectures and tutorials.

Student Evaluation Practice Problems Mid Term 1

See lecture schedule. Practice problems are not marked or graded. They are sometimes used in exams. Duration 2:50 hours, closed book. Date: Wed May 30 (1-4pm). 25% All appeals must be made within one week from the return of test results. Mid Term 2 Duration 2:50hours, closed book. Date: Wed June 13 (1-4pm). 25% All appeals must be made within one week from the return of test results. Duration 3 hours, closed book, place/time/date TBA by the university. Final Exam 1. A min of 33% of the sum of the two midterms is required to pass this course. 2. A min of 33% in the final exam is required to pass this course. 50% 3. Overall min (term work + final exam) of 50% is required to pass this course. 4. The final examination is for evaluation purposes only and final exam paper will not be returned or made available to students after it is marked. Absence: Absence from the compulsory elements of this course may have a serious negative impact in your academic performance, If you are absent, it is recommended that you review the material missed as soon as possible; consult with your fellow students and with your TA, and attend office hours. Absence from any of the compulsory elements of this course will automatically result in a mark of zero in that element until proper documentation is presented to justify your absence. Documenting your absence: If you are absent due to a medical condition you must obtain a proper doctor’s certificate using the form found in . You must consult a doctor within 24 hours of the onset of the conditions leading to your absence and fill the appropriate form. If your absence is due to a personal emergency please document it in detail, as much as possible, including tickets, visas or passport entries, if travel is involved. You may also wish to include affidavits from coaches, witnesses, officials, police reports, etc, as appropriate. If you know in advance of your absence please contact the instructor early. Class Behaviour and Expectations: Class participation is expected. Excessive talking among students during lectures is disruptive of the learning atmosphere and is distracting for the instructor. Please respect the instructor’s requests for a quiet class environment.
