V. Other Pertinent Information
VI. Catalog Course Description
This course provides a non-calculus analysis of Newton’s first law from an applications standpoint as it pertains to particles and rigid bodies. It utilizes algebra and trigonometry for application to problems involving force systems, equilibrium, and structures.
VII. Required Course Content and Direction
  1. Course Learning Goals

    Students will:

    1. evaluate the theory behind and the applications of the analysis of applied engineering statics;
    2. analyze concurrent forces, the statics of particles, and equivalent force/moment systems of rigid bodies;
    3. evaluate centroids and center of gravity; and
    4. apply the theory learned to the analysis of trusses, frames, and machines.
  2. Planned Sequence of Topics and/or Learning Activities

    The following topics are presented:

    1. general principles
    2. concurrent and non-concurrent force systems
    3. statics of particles
    4. rigid bodies: equivalent force/moment systems
    5. distributed forces: centroids and center of gravity
    6. equilibrium of rigid bodies
    7. trusses, frames, and machines
    8. conservative and non-conservative force analysis
  3. Assessment Methods for Course Learning Goals

    The evaluative tools may include any or all of the following as specified by the individual instructor's syllabus: objective examinations, research reports, laboratory reports, online activities and discussion, quizzes, projects, and papers.
  4. Reference, Resource, or Learning Materials to be used by Student:

    Students use educational resources as approved by the department and specified in the individual instructor's syllabus.
