Description

Mechanics courses tend to provide engineering students with a precise, mathematical, but less than engaging experience. Students often view the traditional approach as a mysterious body of facts and tricks that allow idealized cases to be solved. When confronted with more realistic systems, they are often at a loss as to how to proceed. To address this issue, this text empowers students to tackle meaningful problems at an early stage in their studies.

Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, First Edition balances rigor with user friendliness.  The style is personalized, giving students the sense that they are having a one-on-one discussion with the authors. This minimizes the air of mystery that a more austere presentation can engender, and aids immensely in the students’ ability to retain and apply the material.  The authors do not skimp on rigor but at the same time work tirelessly to make the material accessible and, as far as possible, fun to learn.

New to This Edition

WileyPLUS is an online teaching and learning platform that helps you and your students achieve educational success. WileyPLUS gives students opportunities for practice, organizes learning to show connections between assessment and learning content, and tracks progress to help students stay on path for success. Each element of the online experience has been crafted to form part of a cohesive learning experience that leverages the unique capabilities available in a digital setting. To address student learning and mastery challenges, Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics provides:

  • ORION FOUNDATIONS:
    An adaptive practice system that helps students build their proficiency on important prerequisite math and physics topics and use their study time most effectively.
  • Diagnostic assessment before each new chapter:
    Students can gauge their readiness for each new chapter—and what they may need to review further—with a brief diagnostic quiz.
  • A consistent instructional cadence of tell, show, do:
    For each new major concept within a chapter, students will read or watch a passage that develops it, then see solved examples that apply it, and finally have an opportunity to master it through progressive, interactive exercises.
  • Scaffolded learning:
    Practice exercises and a selection of homework problems will use techniques such as hints, partial solutions, feedback on common mistakes, and progressive complexity to build student confidence and reinforce skills.
  • Optional pathways and resources:
    The course supports differences in students’ ideal learning styles. For example, they will be able to choose a preferred pathway through the conceptual and example content: video, textual, or a mixture of both. All practice exercises will be available to students for self-study, even if they are not formally assigned by instructors for assessment.

Additional student resources

  • The text website, www.wiley.com/college/tongue, includes answers to selected exercises from the text to help students check that they have solved the exercises correctly.
  • MATLAB M-files used in certain examples are available for download from the text website.

Additional instructor resources

  • Animations and simulations, including lecture and example videos, that enhance visualization skills and allow “what if” analysis is available in WileyPLUS.
  • Solutions manual: Typed solutions to all exercises, using the same solution procedure as the worked examples.
  •  Electronic figures: All figures from the text are available electronically, for use in creating your own lectures.
