Make-up tests will be given only if the student has a valid reason for missing the test, and if the student notifies the instructor as soon as possible, preferably before the test. If a student misses a test and does not have a valid excuse, the student will receive a zero for that test.
Exams will consist of 4 to 8 problems. Exams may also consist of essay, multiple choice, true/false, matching, and fill-in-the-blank questions.
Every Monday there will be a five question quiz that will cover concepts from the previous week’s homework. There is no partial credit on the quizzes. There will be 12 quizzes during the semester and your score will be computed using the highest 10. No make-up quizzes will be given. If you miss a quiz you will receive a zero and that will be one of the dropped quizzes. Quizzes will be given at the beginning of class and will be five minutes long.
Homework assignments will be given at the end of every class period.
The project will be assigned with approximately 7 to 8 weeks left in the semester. This project must be the original work of each student. The student will be required to submit a typed paper that shows the analysis that was performed, discusses any assumptions made in the analysis, and discusses any conclusions drawn from the analysis. The project will be an actual engineering problem that either I or another engineer actually had to solve. The specifics of the problem and report will be given when the project is assigned.
NO withdrawals will allowed after NOVEMBER 18, 2005. Listed below are some important dates:
