Day 1
Content:
 
Introduce ENGR 211 and begin initial discussions.
 
Discuss the course syllabus, the structure of the class, the grading policy, etc. This will
involve handing out a printed copy of the syllabus. In addition, a student profile sheet
should be collected from each student that contains as a minimum the student name, ID
number, and overall GPA. These data are to be used by the instructor as a basis for
dividing the students into four-person teams.
 
Present an introduction to mechanics. This introduction should cover the basics of
mechanics, definitions of important terms, a restatement of Newton's Four Laws
(Newton's three laws of motion and Newton's law of gravitation).
 
Reference #1 presents a brief outline of some important topics that need to be discussed
and clarified.
Skills/Objectives:
 
Working understanding of Newton's laws.
Assessment:
 
Homework Set #1: none.
Resources:
 
R/S Chapter 1 (pp. 3-30), R/S Chapter 12 (pp. 3-14), Reference #1.
Notes:
 
This discussion of Newton's laws is extremely important because there are many
misconceptions regarding the relationship between Newton's second law and
Newton's law of gravitation. It is essential that the student understand that these
are two different and independent laws. Many texts including the current text for
ENGR 212 state that Newton's law of gravitation is derived from Newton's second law.
This misconception must be destroyed early.
Advanced Organizers:
 
Read Chapter 1 (pp. 3-30) and Chapter 12 (pp. 3-14) in R/S.
