Mechanics: Statics; A Syllabus.
The instructor's guide presents material for structuring an engineering fundamentals course covering the basic laws of statistics as part of a mechanical technology program. Detailed behavioral objectives are described for the following five areas of course content: principles of mechanics, two-dimensional equilibrium, equilibrium of internal forces, friction, and cross-sectional calculations. The topical outline presents the five areas divided into sub-topics, indicating the number of lecture periods for each topic. The lecture/recitation methodology (including titles of the text and four references) and student activities are briefly described. Evaluation of students according to accomplishment of the behavioral objectives is outlined in detail with numbers indicating the part of the topical outline where the concepts were taught. A sample lesson plan (with a sample problem and a homework problem) and a sample five-problem, three hour final examination are contained in the guide. (MS)
