MECH103P Introduction to Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics
Each lecture will consist of describing the conceptual framework and where appropriate model calculations to support the concept being demonstrated in either thermodynamics or mechanics of fluids. Each lecture will be supported by a tutorial so that these concepts can be discussed and applied.
We are emphasizing the use of novel methods to cement concepts and consolidate learning. These can be in many different forms, including lecture room based demonstrations for the physical principles (either in the lecture) or other ways (for example, podcasts), for example. Online quizzes and tutorials may be used as required to help the students to self-evaluate and judge their own progress. Additionally, labs will be used to assist on the delivery of chosen topics.
Module tutors will monitor student engagement through Moodle and class participation. Student support will be achieved via some or all of the following: automatic feedback of online quizzes, sufficient number of office hours; including TAs time, Moodle monitoring of student progress via ‘discovery’ of new topics only after a set of online activities have been performed by the student, or any other method as appropriate.
The course will have the following assessment components:
To pass this course students must:
