outcomes
1. Modeling kinematical and dynamical
behavior of mechanical systems. In
particular; motion graphs &amp; diagrams,
Newtonian force analysis, energy &amp;
energy conservation, momentum &amp;
momentum conservation, circular &amp;
rotational dynamics, fluid dynamics,
gravitational potentials &amp; forces, simple
harmonic motion, and mechanical waves
and vibrations.
2. identifying and assessing random &amp;
systematic errors in lab experiments
3. Assessing statistical validity of claims
based on experimental data. This
includes the validity of patterns claimed
to exist within some data, and also the
degree of confidence one may have
when a particular pattern is used to test a
hypothesis.
Disability Accommodations Statement: As a CEP student, you are required to follow the PNC policy for
disabilities. Purdue University North Central is committed to providing all students equal access to learning
opportunities. Students with a documented disability that either prevents them from fully participating in
any aspect of this course, or that require an accommodation should contact the instructor within the first two
weeks of this course. Students who have self-identified and who have appropriate documentation (from a
medical professional) that has been verified through the PNC Disability Services Coordinator, (located in
LSF 103 or by phone at 219-785-5374), will be given accommodations for this course . It is the student's
responsibility to request an accommodation and schedule their exams with the Student Success Center,
professor, or Disability Services Coordinator.
Course Evaluation
Course evaluation for each course is done online. After the 12th week of the semester you
will
receive emails asking you to fill out the course evaluation for each course on
line. There may be in-class reminders for completing the online evaluation. IT IS VERY
IMPORTANT THAT YOU COMPLETE THE COURSE EVALUATION since your
feedback is important for improving the course.
As a PNC-CEP student, you are responsible for following PNC’s academic integrity
policy. Academic Integrity is a core value of our community. Academic honesty and
appropriate classroom behavior are the responsibility of each PNC student. Students who
are found to be in violation of the academic integrity policy will be subject to both
where the student may have a pattern of misconduct with the University, the student may
be separated from the University because of this behavior.
You are expected to be familiar with the University’s Code of Conduct and possible
sanctions. You can access this document on the Dean of Students webpage under
University and Campus Policies/Student Conduct, Disciplinary Procedures and Appeals,
or at: http://www.pnc.edu/Policy/conduct. Students should also make themselves aware
of an addendum covering classroom disruption which can be found at:
Students should understand that if you are charged with an offense, pleading ignorance of
the rules will not serve as an excuse. You need to make yourself familiar with these
university documents. Any questions you may have can be directed to the Dean of
Students.
Counseling Services
Short term confidential counseling is available to enrolled students free of charge through
the Student Counseling Services office located in LSF 103. The phone number is 219785-5230 or 1-800-872-1231 ext. 5230. Students may call or stop in to make an
appointment Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
