Grading Homework 5% Midterm Exam 1 30% Midterm Exam 2 30% Final Exam 35% Homework This is a problem-solving course, and there are many challenging homework prob-lems. The only way to learn dynamics is to work many problems. The homework problems will prepare students for the examinations. In this instructors experience, students who do not work and understand the homework problems have no chance of passing the examinations....
