Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering ME 300 Thermodynamics Section D Fall 2010 MWF 8-8:50am, Room 1320 Digital Computer Laboratory, 3 credit hours Homework Policy or The Guide to Successfully Solve and Submit Homework Since this is a core mechanical engineering course, it is for your benefit to familiarize yourself with the guidelines and format requirements for the homeworks you have to submit during this semester. Your homework is a representation of you and your ability to solve engineering problems. In your future engineering career, your boss, your colleagues and your clients will judge you based on how you present your work. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that you present your work in a neat (meaning: clearly legible) and professional way. The Five Steps to Solve a Homework Problem The key to be successful in engineering is to learn a systematic approach to solve problems. It is important to resist the temptation to pick an equation which seems appropriate and just punch-in the numbers in your calculator. Even if this ”lucky guess approach” gives the right answer, you will not receive full credit. To receive full credit you are required to follow the five step methodology.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
