Introduction
to Engineering Session Notes Session 1

Overview of
what engineering is electrical, mechanical, computer, chemical, civil, etc.
(Read chapter 1 in the text come in with your questions next time).

Math survey
take the survey so I (and you) can calibrate the course to your proficiency.

Force
Inventory A fairly popular survey to measure your understanding of mechanical
principles. We will take the survey at the end of the semester to measure your
increased understanding. (No credit or penalty for the survey just an
assessment tool).

The
remainder of the session devoted to basic math principles Algebra,
Trigonometry, and Calculus. The lab session will be a continuation of the math
review. There are many good math review websites on the Internet. A few are www.Purplemath.com algebra and earlier
only; www.sosmath.com and many more via
Google. The college also provides tutorial assistance in math at several
levels. Please note: If you have that sinking feeling that the math is going to
overpower you, see me (your helpful instructor) early-on. Dont wait until you
are past that point of no return. We can probably find a way to resolve your
math dilemma or at least find a workable way around it.

No formal
lab today the above work may run into the lab period.
