More information

The course will be run in five self-study sessions:

Session 1: Impulse and Momentum

Sessions 2 and 3 : Moments, Centres of Mass and Rigid body statics.

Sessions 4 and 5 : Differential Equations in Mechanics, Introducing Simple Harmonic Motion, Kinematics of SHM, Incomplete oscillations, Damped SHM, Forced Oscillations

Each session of work will last 2-3 weeks.

At the beginning of the session you will receive a resource pack of study materials containing

  • explanatory powerpoints with exercises and answers
  • where appropriate, supporting geogebra or excel resources
  • an additional powerpoint containing a selection of exam style questions (without solutions).

During the session you will have email access to the tutor and we hope to arrange a voluntary “drop-in” zoom meeting where you can discuss the content with other colleagues and/or the tutor.

At the end of the session there will be zoom meeting which, it is hoped, everyone will be able to attend. During this session, solutions to the powerpoint of exam style questions will be considered and there will be opportunities to discuss any difficulties that have occurred.

In order to complete the course by Christmas, the first set of resources were sent out before the start of the Autumn Term. If you would like to attend, please contact Bethanie as soon as possible to start this course.
