|Brief Handbook Description:||This unit aims to develop an understanding of the basic methods required to perform kinematics and dynamic analysis on particles. By the end of this unit of study students will be able to solve complicated kinematics and dynamics problems of particles in both 2 and 3 dimensions|
|Assumed Knowledge:||This is a first course in engineering kinematics and dynamics. It is assumed that students have studied the equivalent of HSC three unit maths and two unit physics, and also know about vector algebra.|
Dr Auld, Douglass
|T&L Activities:||Tutorial: Two hours per week in one session. A list of tutorial problems will be given for each week. Two bound/stapled note books must be brought to each tutorial session. One book is for tutorial problems. The second book is for quiz problems. Attendance at tutorials is compulsory.|
Attributes listed here represent the key course goals (see Course Map tab) designated for this unit. The list below describes how these attributes are developed through practice in the unit. See Learning Outcomes and Assessment tabs for details of how these attributes are assessed.
|Attribute Development Method||Attribute Developed|
|Students will be required to use creative thinking in the modeling and solution of problems, where there is more than one way to correctly solve the problem. Students will develop the ability to function effectively in researching and solving problems||Design (Level 1)|
|Students will be required to apply the principles of Science in modeling systems from many different fields of engineering. This will require research and understanding of different systems before developing a model so that the problems can be solved.||Maths/Science Methods and Tools (Level 1)|
|Students will have to interpret correctly problems specified in many different ways from text book problems to general written descriptions of realistic problems. Correct interpretation will be essential to correctly solve the problems.||Information Seeking (Level 1)|
For explanation of attributes and levels see Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table.
Learning outcomes are the key abilities and knowledge that will be assessed in this unit. They are listed according to the course goal supported by each. See Assessment Tab for details how each outcome is assessed.Design (Level 1)
4 Assignments : Modelling and Problem Solving Excercises involving practical application of theory. These will be required to be submitted at the end of the tutorial.
Problems will be selected from random examples based on the current week`s lecture.
Assignment 1 : due end of week 4.
Assignment 2 : due end of week 7.
Assignment 3 : due end of week 10.
Assignment 4 : due end of week 13.
Four through semester quizzes, comprising problems similar to final exam. The best 3 results in these quizzes will contribute to the assessment component.
Quiz 1 : Thursday 12noon week 5.
Quiz 2 : Thursday 12noon week 8.
Quiz 3 : Thursday 12noon week 11.
Quiz 4 : Thursday 12noon week 13.
Final Exam: Exam comprising a range of kinematics and dynamics problems covering the full syllabus. Students must pass this final exam to gain a grade of greater than 45% in this unit of study.
|Assessment Feedback:||Marked assignments, sample problems and worked solutions fro quizzes will be provided at tutorial sessions along with any other required feedback.|
|Policies & Procedures:||See the policies page of the faculty website at http://sydney.edu.au/engineering/student-policies/ for information regarding university policies and local provisions and procedures within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies.|
Note: Students are expected to have a personal copy of all books listed.
