The basic content of Applied Mechanics and Dynamics remains unchanged from Edition 2.5. Icons have been added to illustrate where the Academic Supplement should be used to reference formulas, tables, or constants. Self-tests have been added to assist the learner in confirming their knowledge of each concept.
The Objective Statements have been revised in an effort to follow Bloom’s Taxonomy where possible. Conforming to Bloom's Taxonomy reduces the wording of each Objective Statement by using only one verb in each statement (using the higher level verb when possible), while maintaining the level of information within the objective in order to obtain a similar result.
