I am a retired university professor with over 35 years teaching and research experience in engineering mechanics. Engineering mechanics is essentially math and physics applied to the study of the motion and deformation of solid bodies as they occur in engineering applications (e.g. moving linkages, bridges, buildings, machine parts, etc...). The field requires knowledge of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, linear algebra, and from physics the field of mechanics (Newton's laws of ... [more]

Algebra 1

Mechanics is a field in engineering which is essentially mathematics and physics applied to problems in the mechanics of engineering materials and structures. All of the engineering courses that I have taught rely heavily on algebra. I was also the engineering curricular lead in creating the mathematics course sequence for engineering students at OSU.

Calculus

Mechanics is a field in engineering which is essentially mathematics and physics applied to problems in the mechanics of engineering materials and structures. All of the engineering courses that I have taught rely heavily on calculus. I was also the engineering curricular lead in creating the mathematics course sequence for engineering students at OSU.

Geometry

Mechanics is a field in engineering which is essentially mathematics and physics applied to problems in the mechanics of engineering materials and structures. All of the engineering courses that I have taught rely heavily on geometry. I was also the engineering curricular lead in creating the mathematics course sequence for engineering students at OSU.

Prealgebra

I am a retired college professor with 35 years experience in teaching engineering courses which rely heavily on math from algebra to geometry to calculus. My skills in pre-algebra and algebra are very strong as I used these all the time in my courses and in my research.

Trigonometry

Mechanics is a field in engineering which is essentially mathematics and physics applied to problems in the mechanics of engineering materials and structures. All of the engineering courses that I have taught rely heavily on trigonometry. Combined with geometry almost all engineering modeling requires knowledge of system geometry and the trigonometry used to quantify geometric relationships. I was also the engineering curricular lead in creating the mathematics course sequence for engineering students at OSU.

Differential Equations

Mechanics is a field in engineering which is essentially mathematics and physics applied to problems in the mechanics of engineering materials and structures. One of the engineering courses that I have taught (System Dynamics) deals exclusively with using differential equations to mechanical and electrical dynamic systems. I was also the engineering curricular lead in creating the mathematics course sequence for engineering students at OSU.
