3 5 9/20/2011 ENGR201 Lecture 1 Fall 2011 How to Navigate Through This Course Check BbVista frequently for materials and announcements Read the syllabus, lab policies, lab grading rubric and follow the instructions. Attend lectures! Some material in lecture will NOT be in notes. Download and print lecture notes prior to class, follow and annotate during lecture. Read and study the text, do the homework, check your solutions with those posted to prepare for weekly on-line quizzes . Read and prepare for labs prior to lab session. Keep notebook up to date, participate in the lab ( everybody needs hands on ) The TA’s are your first line of defense, contact them with questions about lab, problems, or material etc. If you have additional questions, contact either of the instructors. We are always available by e-mail. See BbVista for office hours. 6 9/20/2011 ENGR201 Lecture 1 Fall 2011 The Textbook Theory and Design for Mechanical Measurements, R.S. Figliola & D.E.
