You are expected to do all of the problems assigned and keep them in a threeringed binder, which will be turned in for grading at each exam (2 midterms and at the final). Homework grades will be determined by a problem selected at random and graded. Each week you will turn in 1) a detailed annotated solution to an assigned problem on the previous week’s material for which no solution is provided and 2) a problemsolving journal to an assigned problem on the coming week’s material. Detailed annotated solutions. The solution should be written as if it were an example problem in a book. It should help someone understand what order the analysis was done, what principles were applied and why, and explicitly state equations without filling in the values until the end. Therefore, it should have substantial text as well as equations and drawings. Where possible, any alternate solutions to the problem should also be presented. You should begin with a problem statement in your own words, a statement of knowns and unknowns, appropriate diagrams, and principles to be applied in the problem. All drawings should be neat and clearly labeled. You may use any resources such as the exam solution, books, and other students to help you understand the problems, but each student must write their Detailed Annotated Solutions in their own words. If two or more solutions are found to be substantially similar, the students involved will divide the total points for the solution. Problemsolving journal. You will be asked to attempt problems that have not been covered yet in lecture. It is important that you work the problem before class, since the questions you may have about a problem will likely motivate lecture. You will be asked to turn in a record of your attempts to understand, consider, and solve the problem. It will be recognized that you may not in fact be able to solve the problem, but this does not mean you should turn in a blank sheet of paper. The methods that you use to solve a problem, the corrections that you make in your approach, the means by which you test the validity of your solutions, and your ability to communicate ideas are just as important as getting the correct answer. Examples of things appropriate for a problemsolving journal  redefinition of the problem  simplifying assumptions  sketches and diagrams  identification of areas where your prior knowledge is or is not applicable  your intuitive or common sense answer, with justifications  a list of things you need to learn in order to solve the problem  a list of questions you would like to ask
本课程以课堂讲授和自主学习的方式相结合，课堂讲授占60%，自主学习占40%
Exams There will be two midterms and a final exam. Exams will be taken in class, closedbook, closed notes, with one handwritten letter size sheet allowed. Prior approval is required for not taking midterms, which will only be granted for documented medical or family emergencies. If you cannot take a midterm for nonacademic reasons, your grades will be prorated based on other exams and homework. No one can complete the course without taking the final exam. Midterm dates: Tuesdays, February 6 and March 13, 3:00  4:15 pm. Comprehensive final exam: Thursday, April 26, 2:40  5:40 pm. Grading Everyone can earn an A in this course. You must demonstrate conceptual and computational proficiency and good engineering judgment and intuition in all topics covered to earn an A. To earn a B, you must demonstrate that you can apply most of the material, and have some intuition and conceptual understanding, though you may have an area of weakness. To earn a C, you must demonstrate that you understand the basic concepts, and can apply some of them. To earn a D, you must demonstrate that you understand some basic concepts, and if you can’t do any of the above, then you earn an F. Grading of all materials will be on a straight scale as follows: A 85100 % B 7584 % C 6075 % D 4060% F < 40% The final grade will be computed using the following weights: 8% Homework Binder 8% Weekly Homework Assignments 9% Flipped session attendance 20% Midterm #1 20% Midterm #2 35% Final Exam
