Grading, Exams and Homework
Grading will be based on exams,
homework, and a report.
The weights will be:
Homework should be neatly written on
standard engineering 8 1/2
x 11 paper.Sloppy or late homework
will be penalized or even rejected.
sure to show your work on all homework problems; the answer alone is never
responsive, and points will be deducted if important steps are missing
from your development.Make liberal
use of carefully drawn and labeled diagrams in your homework.Since significant partial work is
usually given some credit on homework, it is a sound strategy to hand in
what you can do on each homework problem.One more thing:It must be your
own work!Cases of copying will
be treated as ACADEMIC DISHONESTY.You can talk with other students, but you must then do the problem
will be announced in class, typically on Tuesday, and will be due the
following Tuesday.Homework is due
at the beginning of class
on the due date.Assignments handed
in after the beginning of class will be treated as late and will not be
graded.PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO
COMPLETE ASSIGNMENTS DURING THE LECTURE.THESE WILL NOT BE GRADED.
problem should begin on a NEW PAGE
and should include the following:
statement of the problem including any necessary given information or
assumptions you decide to make.
final answer with a BOX drawn
around it.This is essential!
carry around symbols for units as you walk through a problem.When you give a
final answer, then is the time and
place to attach units.Use the
abbreviations in the text for Mega Pascal (MPa), density (g/cm³), etc.Don't forget correct units.
No homework will be accepted late
(homework is due in class on due dates before class begins).A late entrance into the class does not
provide an excuse for handing homework in late.
sure that your name is at the top of the first page of each part.PRINT your name in block letters,
LAST NAME FIRST.Staple the
pages together to ensure full credit.
