Ofﬁce Hours: mes 12:45 AM = 2:00 PM; Otlter'timcs by spot, Textbook: ' ' . r a” as . Bedferd&Fowler,3’dEd, not required): _ u on. set by Gmesh Thioyrajao (a
collection of’cxample problems, many done in class). Obtained from ASCE at beginning
of semester. Basic Objectives; This comse is an introduction to the application of basic physical and
mathematical principles to the analysis of forces in simple, static rigid bodies, oftliis towel
class is to begin Although many people think this course is a “weedom” course, the potpose of this class is to help the
student think like an engineer, or at least begin to, In this respect, statics is seeessstily hard. Whose this
course veers from math and physics courses is that an engineer is a “problem solver”, a “trouble
shooter”, a of sessions.” Statics is the first course that helps to train the We in the
broad thinking process needed to become so effective professional, Due to the natw’c of this course, a large amomt of material must be covered, leasing very little time
timing the lecture to backtrack over previously covered material, to the mother of example
problems done in class, and to shonen the shady mininnim amount of required to order for the student to grow the material in this course, it is expected that the stodent would;
1.. Go through all the example problems in the text on the canin topic;
2, Follow the instructions given in class in how to approach a problem;
3, Take advamag ofthe Modal available tines times a week, or if unable to attend,
set up appoiinmem times with the instructor, Student Outcomes Objectives: 1, able to understand the “language of mechanics”: resilient vs, equilibrium problems;
recognize particle vs, rigid hm statics and the associated solution methods, 2.. statically mam vs. indeterminate problems and how to simplify cottain systems so
that they are statically detmninato. 3,. Be able to draw from all past math knowledge and apply these tools to the solution of practical,
simple engineering problems in resultant and equilibrium of force systems including trusses, frames and
machines, centroids and centers of gravity, fluid statics, ﬁction, and moments of inertia, Assessment of Student Outcomes: l, M will be assigned each class period from the regular textbook, or from eelass Its
ptnpose is to help the snident develop the understanding of Wesley and application of s m (usually) concept to practical engineering problems. Homework assigned on one day is due by the beginning of the next class lecture. N 0 homework is accepted once the lecture begins.
All homework must be submitted on engineering paper in the form speciﬁed in the attached sample, in order to obtain ﬁillest credit. Solutions to assignments will be available in the Semester Book. Homework will count only if the exams average is a passing grade. 2. Igs_ts will be used to determine the students’ ability to apply several concepts to a single problem in
order to obtain the desired solution. There will be three exams throughout the semester each of one hour
duration and will be given on designated Friday evenings from 4:30 — 5:30 PM as stated in the
schedule of classes. Any conﬂict with these exam times must be worked out with the other instructor.
No makeup exams will be given without a minimum of 24 hours advance notice grid adequate proof of
an emergency situation. If advance notice is not possible in the emergency situation, the instructor must
be notified no later than one week after the scheduled day of the exam in order to be eligible for a
makeup exam. Any student who has been tested eligible for extra time on exams by the Office of Disability
Services (ODS) must take their exams at ODS and comply with their rules and time schedules. (See
instructor for details.) 3. A ﬁnal exam of two hours duration will test the ability of the student to synthesize related concepts
from course topics and to demonstrate their assimilation of the course material. This will be given as a
group exam on Monday, May 10, 12:302:30 PM. Assessment of Course — Methods and Improvements: 1. Students will be surveyed for an assessment of the methods used and potential improvements
(usually aﬁer the ﬁnal drop date). 2. An ad hoc group will be assembled to review the ﬁrst survey results and meet with the instructor to
discuss concerns and suggestions for improvement. 3. The instructor will provide a response to review comments. 4. Improvements that can be made in the course of the semester will be implemented. The results of
this assessment will be evaluated by the instructor and an action plan for improvement developed for implementation in the subsequent semester. Other Requirements of the Course: 1. Blue books: Students must submit four fullsized blue books (preferably 8 I/2” x 11” and minimum
of 8 leaves — 16 pages) to the instructor within the ﬁrst two weeks of class. No student will be allowed to bring their own blue book to the exams. The student’s name must be on the back upper left corner to
be properly credited. 2. Attendance: Attendance is mandatory for the student to ﬁilly obtain the “student outcome
objectives.” After three consecutive absences, the student’s name will be turned in to the Dean of
Engineering ofﬁce for appropriate action. Grading:
The ﬁnal grade will be based on the following point scale: A 383 w 425 points (“distinguished mastery of the course material”)
B 340 — 382 (“good mastery of the course material”)
C 276 — 339
D 255  275
F < 254
The points will be accumulated in the following manner:
One Hour Exams 3 x 75 225 pts.
Two Hour Final Exam 150
Homeworks ( approx. 3? sets) :9
425 pts. NOTE: Any grade change you see justiﬁed should be brought to the attention of the instructor within
one week of receiving the grade (includes exams and homeworks). Semester Book: Only the exam scores will be posted in the semester book (accessed via PAWS) so that the 60%
requirement before including homeworks will be obvious. The student is expected to verify on a regular
basis that all information entered is correct. Please inform the instructor immediately if any
diSCrepancies exist. NOTE that Semester Book does not necessarily give the correct ﬁnal grade. It
is only to give the student an idea of where they stand. Answers to Universal Complaints about Statics: 1. Too much homework. The homework assigned is the minimum required to get a basic understanding of the concept
presented in lecture. Students are told repeatedly they must work more problems than just the
homework in order to obtain a good “feel” for the application of concepts. 2. Only one hour to work the major exams. Methods presented in the lecture usually consist of a faster way of solving a problem. Many
students may have learned a certain way in physio andr’or math and are reluctant to let go of the old
method and learn a “new” method. Due to the time factor on the exams, the problems are designed to
test the students” ability to ascertain what the problem requires and the best method for achieving its
solution. However, the instructor is at liberty to test a particular method. Furthermore, the students will,
throughout their academic and professional careers, be required to perform optimally under time constraints.
There are several old exams “out there.” The best way for the student to determme comprehension of exam material in the required time frame is to use the old exam as a practice test with timer AEIEB THOROUGHLY STUDYING THE MAERIAL, NOT THE OLD EXAM!!!
Very few students actually do this, to the detriment of their performance on their own current exam. _CE 2450___ STATICS : _ SPRING 2004 Dste , _ _ Chapter Text Seption Hwk #L _ Tentative HWICO'mments“
