    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Great course that will lay the foundations for upper level courses such as biomechanics. The professor is no longer there so the course may be easier or more difficult.

    Course highlights:

    Teaches you how to analyze structures and the forces occurring internally and externally.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to study and it won't be too bad.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is phenomenal she puts in all the effort to help you whether you're doing well or poor to help you achieve your desired goal. The student who studied regularly and was active in the class should have been able to pick up the material, daily homework, weekly quizzes, and a test every three weeks made it impossible to fall behind so you were always on top of knowing the material it was just up to you if you wanted to strengthen your overall knowledge and seek more.

    Course highlights:

    I gained skills in learning a foundation of Kinematics to be applied in Statics and a foundation for Mechanics of Solids such as deformation, stress, and different ways to calculate torsion. I learned that the best way to learn was by doing constant examples whether if was redoing the homework or by doing more problems from the book, if you cared enough the professor did too, it was a course that taught better study habits while at the same time taught a large amount of material that was able to be grasped. Not being easy it took a lot of time to prepare and having 4 other classes on top of it made it difficult to find time to put into others not to mention long tests but in the end that's all college for engineering students really is, finding a balance in time and space for preparing for every problem/task at hand.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework don't copy from the internet but if you do at least try to understand what's happening and do examples from the book, I'm a book learner and if the textbook is good i will excel and a good book means good practice problems so do as many as possible. Put the effort in because you only get what you put in, daily homeworks keep you in check and on top of the material, weekly quizzes test what you need work on, and the tests only test what you should have learned so if you don't have a good foundation on the work presented prior to the test there is something wrong because the tests are only fair so put in the work and practice makes perfect. Find your own method of solving problems because there is more than one way just like life can present you with different outcomes based on how you approach it.
