Lecture Materials for ME 120

This page contains links to individual lectures for the Winter 2017 version of ME 120. Much of the same material is also available on the Course Topics web page, where the links to topics are organized by concept, not by the order in which the material was presented in class.

This page also contains links to all homework assignments. Unless explicitly noted, all homework assignments are due at the beginning of class. Two formats are expected for solutions to the homework

To avoid confusion, the required format will be specified for each problem on each homework assignment.
