!. Assignments will be e"aluated on the following basis
o #0 of the assignment points will be based on the e$tent of work
performed on the problem. %he submitted assignment must consist of all
the re&uired steps in"ol"ed in engineering problem sol"ing techni&ue. 'our
score will be in proportion to the work performed. (or full credit you must
write the data gi"en) what is to be determined) formulas used) references)
correctness of the answer) intermediate results. Abo"e all the answer
should be self*speaking such that any person not familiar with the sub+ect
could understand the steps and sol"e the problem.
o ,- of the assignment points will be based on the e$planation supporting
the work performed on the assignment. %he submitted assignment must

performed.
o !0 of the assignment points will be based on !*page summary clearly
e$plaining what you learned from the assignment and state where you
would like to apply this knowledge. 'our score will be based on the clarity
