Homework


Your chance to practice using the concepts
presented in class


Teamwork vs. Individual work?


Answers to even numbered problems are in
the text


Guidelines at the web site!!!

Homework + Quiz

Homework problems will be posted
weekly.


Solution will be posted 3 days before due
day
. Not all homework problems may be
graded.


A quiz will be given on each homework
due day
.


Each quiz covers the homework
assigned in the previous week with problems very
similar or identical to the homework
problems.


Unless you have a university excuse
(see Absences in the syllabus),
late assignments
will not be accepted for credit
.


Please do not ask
for exceptions.

minutes evening examinations and a two
-
hour final examination are scheduled (see the
course calendar given in the syllabus). Unexcused
absences will result in a grade of zero for missed
examinations. The exams are closed book. You
are allowed to bring in one single
-
sided letter size
paper with your own notes and formulas (no
examples and sample problems).


No other
resources are permitted in the exams.


Regrading

Request for regrading an exam or
homework/quiz must be done
within
one week

after the exam or
homework/quiz is returned.


Your

My Goals for Course


That each of you develop an intuition for
the fundamental principles of fluid
mechanics


That you leave this course saying, “Fluids
makes sense” and “I can tackle fluids
problems.”


That we have an enjoyable semester
learning together
