Engineering: Vector Mechanics

Likely one of the first engineering courses you'll take in college, this homework-optional, six-session FLEX course provides a foundation for force analysis and mechanics. A must for STEM learners.

Description

Class Experience

Students will be able to do the following:
-define vectors and scalars and break problems down into magnitude and direction
-calculate reaction forces along both parallel and oblique lines of action, as well as the three basic trigonometric functions to evaluate them
-define moment (torque) about a point and incorporate it into rigid beam analysis
-simplify distributed loads to points for easier calculations and assessment of reactions
-discuss the advantages of trusses and calculate loads in basic truss members
A group challenge activity will be released that might be more tricky and stretch your understanding, which will allow you to discuss with other students. Some of them can be tackled in more than one way, so see what your classmates come up with! I will jump into discussions to assist in guiding the class toward effective solutions and to answer any questions that might come up!

Additionally, homeworks will be provided at the beginning of each week, with answer keys supplied the following week. These homeworks are optional, however, so take the class to enjoy it! 
Paper, writing implement, and the calculator on any smartphone -- if it has buttons for basic arithmetic and trigonometric functions (sine, cosine, tangent, and their inverses), then that's all you need!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
