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...no complicated theories and halfworked examples. 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. Come learn with me!
Who should enroll in this course?
 Engineering students wanting to get a head start on an upcoming Mechanics of Materials course
 Students currently taking Mechanics of Materials who need extra examples and explanations
 Students entering graduate school who need to prepare for graduatelevel coursework
 Students and professionals who are preparing to take the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam
What do I need to know before starting?
The typical prerequisites for this class are Statics, Mechanics of Materials I, and Calculus. We will be using derivatives and integrals so you should be familiar with those concepts. We will cover everything else you need.
Is there a recommended textbook?
I, along with most students I've taught, really like the Mechanics of Materials 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 wait? There's no better time than now! Enroll today!
