Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This is one of the basic course, where you learn about forces acting in a body, resolving and working with forces, understand the equilibrium of a body at rest and of course, the ever so popular - free body diagrams! This is sure fun and a great basic to civil and mechanical engineering courses. If you start early, and solve problems, you will sure get a good grade!
Course highlights:
Definitely the prof! She was an amazing teacher, passionate to teach us what she felt was an important basis for understanding the fundamental movement and forces of a body. And of course, because I love drawing, I loved the FBDs!
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Start early! I know this is almost the advice for all engineering course, I will still suggest - please start practicing problems from the textbook or from any online source as early as you can! That's the best and only possible way to solve problems. Also, during practicing for final exams, don't focus on arriving at the right vale. Try to solve the problem with the concepts alone. This will take less time and you could try more problems that way. Do loads of past exam problems
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This is a course that requires a lot of visualization of things in 3D space.
Course highlights:
It is very practical and helpful for thinking about forces in everyday life
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure that you know all of your trigonometry very well
