CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION Physical quantities, units and dimensions. Motion in one, two and three dimensions. Newton's laws of motion. Work-energy, momentum and collisions, conservation of energy and momentum. Rotational motion. Static equilibrium. AIMS & OBJECTIVES To introduce the fundamental concepts of motion necessary for engineering science and provide essential background for engineering students. To provide students with a deeper understanding of fundamental laws and concepts of natural phenomena. To improve students problem solving skills. To strengthen students creative and systematic thinking capability. GENERAL LEARNING OUTCOMES (COMPETENCES) On successful completion of this course, all students will have developed knowledge and understanding of: the concepts, theories, techniques and generalizing principles of classical mechanics; the mathematical forms of the laws and physical relationships in classical mechanics and their application in solving problems; diagrammatic and graphical representation of physics problems and physical data; validation of theory through experiment/observation. On successful completion of this course, all students will have developed their skills in: correctly using symbols and units; analytically/critically applying the theoretical concepts and methods of mechanics covered in the course, and formulating appropriate equations to solve problems; using efficiently and effectively the textbook and other printed/electronic literature relevant to the course; performing scripted experiments as a team, analyzing and evaluating the data, and writing lab reports; using good scientific English for written and oral communication. On successful completion of this course, all students will have developed their appreciation of, and respect for values and attitudes to: the discipline of physics as a fundamental branch of science that provides qualitative and quantitative explanations about the physical world; being an open-minded, curious, creative and reasoned skeptic; being aware of ethical issues in science. GRADING CRITERIA Excellent understanding of the concepts and the principles as demonstrated by correct and accurate knowledge and A application of theory/laws in solving problems. Response to problems is clear, legible, concise and accurate. (excellent) Excellent performance. ~85% and above Better than average understanding of the concepts and the principles as demonstrated by correct and accurate B knowledge and application of theory/laws in solving problems, but does not have the depth and outstanding quality (good) of an "A". Response to problems is fairly clear, legible, but occasionally contains some inaccuracies. Performance ~70% and above exceeds the minimum requirements. An average understanding of the concepts and the principles as demonstrated by reasonably correct knowledge and C application of theory/laws in solving problems, but does not have any depth. Response to problems is reasonably (average) clear, legible, but contains inaccuracies. It reveals a sufficient understanding of the material, but lacks depth in ~60 % and above understanding and approach/application. Content and form do not go beyond basic expectations and/or display some substantial errors. Acceptable but non-exceptional performance that does not go beyond the minimum requirements. Minimal knowledge and barely sufficient understanding of the concepts and the principles as demonstrated by D approximately correct application of theory/laws in solving problems. Response to problems is not very clear and is (barely sufficient) barely legible, and contains many inaccuracies. It reveals a minimum (confused) understanding of the material, and ~50% and above lacks depth in understanding and approach/application. Content and form do not adequately meet the basic expectations, and/or display significant errors. Performance demonstrates severe problems in one or more areas. F Work does not meet the most minimal standards. It reveals no understanding of the material, lack of basic academic (fail) skills and knowledge, or completely incomprehensible writing. Performance is not acceptable. Below 50%

NG Not enough information to assign a letter grade. nil grade METHOD OF ASSESSMENT Midterm I Exam 25 points Midterm II Exam 20 points (to be held on 02 May 2013, Thursday at 16:30) Final Exam 40 points Lab 5+10 points IMPORTANT NOTES Participation to lectures: Active participation to lectures is a must for successful completion of this course. Students failing to attend lectures on a regular basis may receive an NG grade. Make-up Exam: There is only one make-up exam that will be held after the finals (its date, place and time will be announced later). Make-up exam is a comprehensive exam irrespective of whether it needs to replace a midterm I and midterm II. A letter grade of F will automatically be converted to an NG if a student misses an exam and yet does not attend the make-up. Objections: Graded exam papers will be available for inspection upon request. According to the regulations of The University, any objections or re-grade requests should be made within a week of the announcement of grades.

These will be scheduled during the time slots of the tutorial sessions. Please refer to the schedule below for the specific date of each lab session. Note that students who do not attend at least three lab sessions will not be allowed to sit for the lab exam. Students repeating the course may request exemption from labs; in this case, lab points gained in the previous semester will be used in calculation of the total grade. Note that this is not applicable to students repeating the course because of an NG grade or students who attended less than three lab sessions in the previous semester. Final exam may include a question that tests the knowledge and/or skills acquired in the lab! This question is compulsory for all students regardless of lab exemption status.

According to university by-laws, cheating is a serious academic dishonesty case punishable with disciplinary action including a letter of official warning and/or suspension from The University for up to one semester. Disciplinary action is recorded in students file and may appear in transcripts. PLEASE KEEP THIS COURSE SYLLABUS FOR REFERENCE AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION!
