Course Description

Statics is an interactive learning course, with classroom demonstrations on the theory of engineering mechanics to bodies that are at rest or move with constant velocity. General topics include internal and external forces (both two and three dimensional), moments, equilibrium of particles and rigid bodies, friction, center of gravity, and moment of inertia). Introduces formal mathematical concepts of computer science for the beginning student. Topics include elementary logic, induction, algorithmic processes, graph theory and models of computation.

Learning Outcomes

The overall objective is that the student is given a thorough introduction to the vector mechanics of non-accelerating objects. By the end of the course, the student should be able to:

Course Requirements

Our final exam will be in L-201 on Wednesday, December 6th from 4:30 pm to 5:45 pm.

Grading Policy

The grades will be assigned based on the standard scale:

A = 90 – 100% B = 80 – 89% C = 70 – 79% D = 60 – 69% F = 0 – 59%

Grades will be calculated according to the following scheme:

Note: All students must receive a grade above 50% on the final exam in order to pass this course.

In the event CNM closes on the day of the final exam, final grades for students will be calculated based on all work assessed up to that point in the course.

Tentative Schedule

This schedule is approximate. To finish the necessary material, i.e., all that is listed above, it is extremely important for you to keep up with the class. For most humans, physics is not easy. But with organization, time and effort you can do it! I am here to help. Please ask when you have questions and take advantage of my office hours!
