It has been a fantastic journey of five weeks. The teaching style is excellent. I Will suggest every graduate student take this course to make a good understanding. Overall it is an excellent course.
THE COURSE WAS VERY INTRESTING AND LIFETIME USEFULL STUFF BEING TOUGHT. TYANKS TO Dr. WHITEMAN he is really good explainer had a great experience and I'm sure gonna join more courses by Dr. WHITEMAN.

Highly useful lectures.The classes can be more effective by active participation of more students simultaneously. A brief insight into derivation of some basic concepts and introduction to fundamental difference between different kinds of members used in engineering applications can be added.
Thanks for the lectures !
Practical demonstration of the problems provides a better clarity.

Great introduction to engineering processes. I was hoping, however, to gain a bit more insight on general details of structures and mechanics, such as what types of materials or designs should be used in certain situations and why. This course covered only mathematics, which while essential, are not the only aspect of engineering in real life applications.

Great course. Well done. Opportunities for improvement: replace videos that have calculation errors, update the online textbook when so it has an index that you can navigate in the PDF. Provide more practice problems with hint/explanations to allow students to check their answers and practice without wondering if they did problems correctly.

I finished the course and I think the course is a great first view of what engineering mechanics can offer to the students at the university. I am a mechanical engineer newly graduated at UFRGS and the course was a great experience to recall some of the content learned at the university.

It was very useful and informative, and the instructor was very clear and if mistakes arose they were pointed out in quick fashion. However as a student from Wales, UK, some of the terminology and especially units were sometimes hard to grasp.

Great introductory course into statics. There are a few errors sprinkled in the lessons which could be cleaned up to make it better. Solutions for the practice problem homework would be much appreciated. Thanks for putting this together.

Great course, I like short videos where concepts are well explained and the quizzes are not tiresome at all but I consider than the pdf of the power point documents could be better, the complete solution does not appear in most of them
By Sarthak R•
well the course was absolute fantastic and even you can get detailed solution of all the assignments after completing the test
but the only reason i gave 4 stars is that for quiz there is only 1 attempt per 7 days and its irritating
By Sai S S•
This course is really a good one! The instructors involvement is really amazing! However, if you could change the number of attempts to at least one per day, it will be very helpful to complete the course in time.
By Kulkarni D S•
This course was really very useful in my day to day college studies I feel now I can solve those tricky questions which troubles me a lot before I joined and completed this course......
So thank you so much.....
By Omar M•
Ideal for Highschool students/graduates who want to pursue further higher educational engineering subjects. A little bit challenging, yet entertaining, and worthy of participating in. Good luck for all!!
By Sajib K N•
This course is very helpful to know the basic knowledge of engineering mechanics. The teaching process was interesting. And our Professor really a great teacher. His class taking system is very nice.
By Vinayak S•
I liked everything about this course except the unavailability of answers to the quiz questions. I think that once when someone passes the test, he/she should be able to view the answers.
By Keenan H•
The course is pretty good but you need some basic knowledge about it cause you won't get it otherwise since it isn't explained. Other than that, it gives some really good explanations.

Dr. Wayne Whiteman Sir presented the topics in a very simplified way and it was very easy to understand. A well curated content with a great set of assignments and practice problems.
By Tanvir H R•
this course provides you the fundamentals and knowledge you need to dive into the realm of mechanics. Also, the problems and books referred here are very standard and helpful
By Jack D•
Practice problems need to be put into their own document rather than having this scroll through endless pages of a document where it is difficult to even find the problems.
By Zhao Z•
The teacher may provide solution for practical exercise of the textbook, and explain more on basic concepts, (e.g. how to define tension and compression on diagram)
By Michael V•
Well-expressed. Enthusiastic teaching. There could be more questions in the weekly assessments just to make sure that all/more areas are more broadly understood.
By Dhruv G•
Nice Course, everything was taught practically and the mentor is very conveying. But there is much higher level of this in Indian Syllabus in first year.
By Benjamin S•
Good overview of engineering statics. However, I wish the homework and/or practice problems were built into the coursera platform like the quizzes.
By abdul a•
It is a good online courses. I like the way Mr. Whitney present to us, he is using a tools to show us the phenomenon. Overall I like this course!
By MD R I•
For my academic purpose this course helps me lot . Cause I'm a mechanical Engineering student . That'a why engineeriung mechanics must be needf
By Manogna R•
very good learnt a lot but , a small suggestion is that please work out even more problems it helps us strengthen concepts . Thank you
By Carlos V•
great course to introduction to classical mechanics, statics. The online reference book is one of the best i read in this subject
