How to Succeed
- Accept that it is your responsibility to learn the material (in spite of the book or teacher)
- Show up and become engaged with the topics
- Do the homework daily so you can ask questions in class
- Use you resources for help (classmates, upperclassmen, faculty, the library)
Prerequisites by Topic:
- Students should be familiar with free and forced vibration of Single Degree Of Freedom (SDOF) systems.
- Students should be familiar with the kinematics and kinetics of two and three-dimensional rigid bodies.
