What is Dynamics and how will it help me?
Dynamics is typically the second or third engineering mechanics course taught in universitylevel engineering programs. It is the study of objects in motion. Dynamics is important in the development of problem solving skills. It teaches you to think about how bodies move and react to forces.
You learn how to analyze word problems, pull out the important information and then solve. The material and thought processes learned in this class will be of great benefit to you in any other application where you are analyzing relationships between objects and applying math concepts.

Your Instructor
Teaching is my passion. As a University professor I have taught 1000's of students and watched them transform from freshmen into successful engineers. Unlike many STEM professors, I believe in teaching complex material in simple, easytounderstand terms. I teach my courses in a way I wish I had been taught: straightforward lectures with plenty of examples on how to apply the theory being learned.
In addition to University experience, I also worked as an engineer for 8 years in industry at a wellknown defense company. This experience enables me to focus in on topics that are actually applicable in the real world, not just textbook problems.

Is there a recommended textbook?
I, along with most students I've taught, really like the Engineering Mechanics  Dynamics text by Hibbeler. If you don't already have a textbook this one would be a great resource, although it is not required for this course.
Why is this course better than the others?
Have you ever been in a class and been frustrated by the lack of fullyworked examples? This will not be that class. I understand the frustration  I used to feel the same way. Because of that, I teach my classes in a way that I would've preferred as a student. Handwritten notes, simple explanations, and plenty of examples in a variety of difficulty levels. You will not find PowerPoint slides here.
