 SYLLABUS: Rules and procedures
 
MSM 211 Purpose: Predict load-carrying capacity of structures and machines through analysis of load, stress, deformation, strain, and material properties. Time and location: MWF 1:50-2:40 Room 2135EB Text: Hibbeler, R.C., Mechanics of Materials, 3rd. Ed., Prentice-Hall, New York, 1997. Instructor: Prof. Gary Cloud P.E. Office: 3511EB Phone: 355-9574 email: Cloud@egr.msu.edu Web Page: www.egr.msu.edu/~cloud Instructor office hours: Tues: 1:50-2:40; Wed, Thu, Fri: 3-3:50 and by appointment. Grad tutors: Zhenyu (Bruce) Liu Xinjian Fan Offices: 4142 EB 3503 EB email: liuzheny@egr.msu.edu fanxinji@egr.msu.edu phone: 517-353-9544 517-432-1793 Help Room: 3263 Engineering Building Help Room Hours: Tues: 11:00-2:00 (Bruce) Wed: 11:50-1:50 (Xinjian) Thur: 11:00-2:00 (Bruce) Fri: 1:50-1:50 (Xinjian) Help room hours are held by two graduate TA's responsible for this course, and are open to all students enrolled in the two sections of the course. Grading basis: homework 10% exam I 20% exam II 20% final exam 30% lab 20% Grading scale: 90 - 100 4.0 85 - 90 3.5 80 - 85 3.0 75 - 80 2.5 70 - 75 2.0 65 - 70 1.5 60 - 65 1.0 0 - 60 0.0 The instructor reserves the right to adjust this scale slightly. Usually such adjustments are in favor of the students. Note that exams are designed in accord with the so-called "mastery model". You are expected to do well! Homework grading: Each Friday, up to three problems from the preceeding week's (M-F of the week preceeding the current week) work will be collected and graded (for example, in period 29, three of the problems assigned for periods 24-26 will be collected). Your average homework performance will comprise 10% of the final grade. Late homework is not accepted, except for rare cases of personal emergencies. It is wise to take advantage of this arrangement by keeping current with the homework assigned. Excuses: I am sympathetic when personal difficulties interfere with schoolwork. Please do not interpret humane treatment as license to irresponsibility. The problem must be real and you must let me know immediately if outside matters are affecting your work. If you find it necessary to miss an exam or you cannot get homework in on time because of accident, illness, or personal difficulty, call my office or the department office (355-5141), or use email to leave a message. We can then meet at a convenient time to attend to the problem.
