You are expected to attend classes and participate for an A, which will also help if your grade is on
the border.

Homework: There will be almost weekly homework, which is due following week in class. Solutions will be
posted at the blackboard on the same day of submission.

Exams: There will be two midterm exams and a comprehensive final exam at the end of the semester. All
exams will be in-class, closed book and with one page of handwritten notes permitted-front and
back of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

Quizzes: There will be quizzes throughout the course, which are 10-20 minutes, in-class, and closed notes.

Why this course?

–It is expected that you can establish a connection between math/science classes and engineering

What do we hope you already know?


What are the objectives of this class?

–To provide a quantitative approach to problem solving in engineering.
–To provide an understating of engineering systems and their interaction with the environment.

How will the class be conducted?

–Two lectures per week
–Regular quick team activities in class
–About weekly homework. Solutions will be posted at the blackboard website after submission.


Your instructors expect that all of our students will conduct themselves ethically and responsibly in this
class. We expect that our students understand and have read the MMAE policy on Academic Honesty given
on the next page and will comply with it.

Collaboration Policy: For assignments in this class collaboration on homework assignments is permitted,
but you must produce your own unique solutions. Any use of homework or exam solutions from prior years
or external sources such as internet websites is prohibited. Collaboration of any kind on exams is

The Department of Mechanical, Materials, and Aerospace Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology
considers academic training to be apprenticeship for practice in the professions. Students are expected to
demonstrate a code of moral integrity and ethical standards commensurate with the high expectations that
society places upon professional practice.

Accordingly, it is the policy of the department to maintain the highest standard of academic honesty and
integrity. The department prohibits any form of cheating that contributes, or is intended to contribute, to a
student’s grade in a course. This includes copying or unauthorized collaboration on homework, reports,
computer programs, projects, etc., collaboration of any kind on an examination or quiz, or the unauthorized
possession or use of any material or machine-stored information during an examination. It is a violation for a
student, whether or not currently enrolled in the university, to knowingly engage or attempt to engage in the
acquisition, without permission, of tests, answer sheets, problem solutions or other academic material when
such material has been withheld from distribution by the instructor.

Students judged guilty of such offenses are subject to either of the following sanctions:

1. Expulsion from a course. The student is assigned a punitive failing grade of E for the course and can no
longer participate in the course or receive evaluation of coursework from the instructor.

2. Reduction in Grade. A reduction in grade for the assignment or exam involved or for the course may be

In addition, the incident will be reported to the Designated Dean for Academic Discipline, who may make a
recommendation for further disciplinary action. The report of the incident will be placed in the student’s
permanent academic record. An offense may warrant a recommendation to initiate dismissal proceedings.
This policy will apply not only to a student guilty of any form of academic dishonesty, but also to any party
who knowingly allows his or her work to be plagiarized.

This policy is consistent with the IIT Code of Academic Honesty


Illinois Institute of Technology expects students to maintain high standards of academic

integrity. Students preparing for the practice of a profession are expected to conform to a
code of integrity and ethical standards commensurate with the high expectations society
places upon the practitioners of a learned profession. No student may seek to gain an
unfair advantage over another.
