Course Policies and Grading

Our goal in this course is to provide a solid background in the fundamentals of thermodynamics.


Attendance will be collected but not required.  We encourage a high level of participation in the class and in the assigned groups.  Teamwork and problem solving skills essential. 


All deadlines are to be honored and only under extenuating conditions, an extension will be given on request.  Make-up exams will be treated the same way.


All exams will carry equal credit (30 points each) while the assignments (5 points each) and the student presentations will carry a credit of 20 points.


Presentation will consist of a written report (10 points) of 15 pages long (including figures, tables, references and double spaced text of font size 12) and 15 minute oral presentation to the class.
