I am currently living in an apartment with my younger sister and our dog, Snow. The two courses in the program--introduction to engineering and advanced engineering--are presented separately. Get a quick overview of each chapter in the "short form" summary at the beginning, and use the handy checklist at the end to critique each part of your report as you write.

    The wedge and the inclined plane ramp were known since prehistoric times. He was also a capable mechanical engineer and an eminent physicist. The term engineering is derived from the word engineer, which itself dates back to the 14th century when an engine'er literally, one who builds or operates a siege engine referred to "a constructor of military engines. Yet such distinctions, inevitable as they may be, are always artificial.
