  • Extra Credit opportunity
    Some of you have asked about extra credit opportunities. I have posted three new online HW assignments (Online HWs 2-2, 3-1, and 3-3). You can complete the assignments as you normally would and you will receive a grade of 0-100% just like the other assignments.

    I will add up to 3 points on one of your exam scores for each of the three extra credit assignments that you complete. Your grade percentage for each assignment will be multiplied by 3 points and the resulting points will be added to one of your exam scores. Please note that it does not matter to which exam score the extra credit points are added, as all exam scores are weighted equally to compute the final course grade.

    Example: You complete Online HW 2-2 and earn a grade of 90%.
    (90%) x (3 points) = 2.7 points... 2.7 points will be added to one of your exam scores.

    Thus, you could earn a total of 9 points to be added to one of your exam scores if you earn 100% on all three extra credit assignments.

  • Practice problems for final exam
    Here are some practice problems to help you prepare for the final exam:
    Chapter 3: 55, 124
    Chapter 4: 15, 28, 105, 106
    Chapter 5; 29, 104, 105
    Chapter 6: 45, 53, 77, 85, 139, 148, 153
    Chapter 9: 39, 41, 42, 43, 44, 133, 142, 145

    Also, review all homework problems, example problems solved in class, and problems from the previous exams. All of this would be good practice for the final exam.

  • Online HW 4-3 has been posted

    I just posted Online HW 4-3. I didn't get it posted on Thursday after class because I had to finish grading a test for my other class. It is due Tuesday night since that is the last day of classes.

  • Centroid and Moment of Inertia tables
    I have uploaded tables for centroid and moment of inertia equations from another textbook. These tables contain more information than the tables in our textbook.

    Click on the link in the left menu under Assignments to view the tables.

    These tables will be useful for Online HW assignments 4-1, 4-2, and 4-3. These tables will also be provided to you during the next exam.

  • Error in lecture on Tuesday, November 21
    I solved a second moment of area problem in class on Tuesday, November 21. I wrote the incorrect number on the board for Ix. I inadvertently wrote 346000 mm^4, but the correct answer for Ix is 405750 mm^4.

    Summing all of the Ad^2 terms for the Ix calculation is 346000 mm^4. Add that to all of the Ix "bar" numbers yields 405750 mm^4. I looked at the wrong number on paper when I wrote the result on the board.

    The correct answer for Ix "bar" is 65400 mm^4.
