Overall Educational Objective  To acquire knowledge in the fundamental principles of physics while establishing a cross reference between them and the realworld applications, in order to use them in engineering applications.  
Course Description  This course includes the topics mostly related with mechanics part of fundamental physics. These topics are; significant figures, units and unit analysis, vectors, motion in one dimension, motion in multi dimensions, Newton’s Laws and their applications, work and kinetic energy, potential energy and conservation of energy, momentum and conservation of momentum, rotation of rigid bodies and dynamics of rotational motion.

Teaching Methods  Students should watch the lecture videos posted in the blackboard system before they come to the classroom. The lecture contents are also posted in the blackboard system. The lectures are conventional lectures with instructor dominated. However, contributions of students are welcome. The interaction with the students (Q&A) will be maximized as much as possible.  
Homework and Projects  There are nonmandatory homework  
Laboratory Work  none  
Computer Use  none  
Other Activities  Random quizzes will take place. We will have at least 7 quizzes.  
Assessment Methods 


Course Administration 
giza@mef.edu.tr Students are expected to attend 70% of the classes. There is no makeup for missed classes. The attendance performance is going to be reflected by 10% to the final grades. One makeup exam will be given at the end of the semester for those who miss an exam due to a legitimate excuse accepted by the instructor. The students are expected to pursue in this class with honesty and integrity. Disciplinary action will be pursued in all instances if academic dishonesty and cheating has occurred. Students with disabilities should consult the instructor for their special needs. For any question, please consult the instructor via mail (giza@mef.edu.tr).
