#### Course Activities and Design

Emphasis is on problem-solving using the methods and concepts of statics. Principles and techniques are presented through lectures and

demonstrations. Students develop problem-solving skills during working sessions under the guidance of the instructor. Problems are assigned on a weekly basis for practice. Practical applications are made throughoutthe course by introducing many typical engineering analysis and design problems.

#### Outcome Assessment Strategies

Student progress is measured by performance on homework and on objective examinations covering appropriate types of problems. Details will be provided by the instructor at the initial class meeting.
