Basic computer skills, MS Excel, MS Word, hand calculator, knowledge of instrumentation used in fluid mechanics measurements, and basic knowledge of LabVIEW and data acquisition.
The final grade for the course will be based on the exam scores, the quiz scores, the average of the scores earned in the homework assignments, and the average score for the laboratory reports. The lowest homework assignment score and the lowest quiz scores will be dropped. The scores on the remaining homework assignments will then be combined and the result converted to the 100-point scale by dividing the result by the maximum number of points possible and multiplying by 100. This will yield the average homework score on that scale. The same procedure will be used for the quizzes. Each exam contributes 20%, homework contributes 10%, laboratory reports contribute 15%, class participation, quizzes contribute 5%, attitude, and class attendance contributes 10%, for a total of 100%. The overall average score (X) for the course is determined as follows:
X =0.20x(exam1 score + exam 2 score + exam 3 score) + 0.1x(homework average) +0.15x( Laboratory reports average) + 0.1x(attitude/participation/attendance score) + 0.05x(average quiz score)
The final letter grade for the course is based on the value of X and is determined from the following grade levels:
Exams and homework assignments must be submitted on engineering paper. All laboratory reports must be typewritten and all graphs must be produced on a separate full page in landscape format. An example report will be made available to the students.
Homework assignments must be turned in on the due date, at the beginning of class. Once class starts, no homework will be accepted. Do not ask one of your classmates to turn in an assignment for you. It will not be accepted.
The student is expected to attend class regularly and is responsible for notes, homework assignments, and exams missed while being absent.
You are expected to take the exam on the scheduled date and time it is given. However, if for some acceptable reason you are not able to do so, then you must inform the instructor in advance. The instructor will then decide whether you will be allowed to take a make-up exam, depending on the validity of your excuse.
Once class starts, the use of cell phone and/or pager, reading a newspaper, conducting private discussions, using the computer (unless asked by your instructor), working on anything that is not directly related to the course, making derogatory remarks about a classmate or your instructor will not be accepted and may result in your dismissal from the class.
