Homework will be assigned periodically throughout the semester and the syllabus is your guide for when things will be due. Even if the HW is not mentioned specifically in class, it will still be due on the dates listed on the master schedule. You are responsible for following the dates on the syllabus.

for each project with: 3% coming from oral progress report, 8% from the final
written report, demo, and Project Design Journal, and 3% from the individual
project. Note: peer group
evaluations will be used to assign individual effort grades that may change your
grade more than the 3% listed here for individual effort.
For instance, if you do not participate in any meetings for your group
projects, do not assume that you will only lose 3% of your total grade.
Less than minimal effort will be regarded as failure to complete the
project. More details about the
projects will be covered as required throughout the semester.
projects are not accepted for credit due to scheduling conflicts for equipment.
However, all students must complete all four projects to pass the course.
Students who do not complete all four projects will fail the course.

available for review from the instructor in person. These grades will show the student's score on all assignments
and tests. However, letter grades
on exams or assignments will not be determined; a final letter grade will be
given at the end of the semester instead. This
course will be graded on a straight scale as follows:

- 100 %
- 87 %
- 71 %
- 59 %

Standards for Homework Problems and Quizzes:
1. Briefly restate the problem using a sketch or diagram where appropriate. Label the sketch or diagram with all quantities involved.
2. Indicate the basis you select, and indicate any change of basis within the problem. State assumptions.
3. Include both the numerical value and units for all quantities involved, including intermediate results.
4. Answers should be circled or otherwise marked, and reported to an appropriate number of significant digits.
5. Values obtained from a handbook or other reference should be accompanied by a citation. For example:
CCl4 boiling pt. 76.5 oC (CRC, pg C-373)
6. Show how you have checked your work if appropriate.
7. Be clear and concise when writing answers to questions.
Standards for Style and Presentation of Problem Sets
1. All assignments are to be submitted on 8.5 x 11 inch paper with writing on one side only. Multiple pages must be stapled together. Unlined paper may be used if the work is done neatly. Handwriting must be legible.
2. Each page must have the student's name, the course number and the page number in the upper right hand corner.
Substandard work will result in a loss of credit.
topics will be assigned throughout the semester and you will be responsible for
writing a short response to the topic. These
journals will be included in your homework grade and should be no longer than 1
page per journal response (typed). Seven of these journal responses will be due during the
semester to help you reflect upon aspects of this course and your college
Design Journals will be due at the oral presentation meeting time and then again
on demonstration days. You should
keep track of key information from your projects in these Design Journals to
help document the processes that you are going through during the project.
You must include:
A list of
who attended each meeting and what their meeting duties were
A copy of
the agenda used for the meeting
minutes of the meeting summarizing what happened during the meeting, what was
agreed to, and what action items will be done (and by whom) for the next
of work: sketches, brainstorming activities, etc. may also be appropriate.
Design Journals will be used in part to assign individual grades for the
projects. It is suitable to use a
three-ring binder, a small notebook, or other method of aggregating your Project
