Editor Comments:  The BME department is dividing all of its 3000level courses so that instead of a single 4credit lecture/discussion/lab course, there are two course numbers: one with a 3credit lecture/discussion and one with a 1credit lab. The teaching and structure and content of the courses will remain completely unchanged. The reason for splitting the two components into different course numbers is so that students have more lab options when registering since our current model has students register for a lab which autoenrolls into a discussion and the lecture.

Course Syllabus  
Course Syllabus: 
For new courses and courses in which changes in content and/or description and/or credits
are proposed, please provide a syllabus that includes the following information: course goals
and description; format;structure of the course (proposed number of instructor contact
hours per week, student workload effort per week, etc.); topics to be covered; scope and
nature of assigned readings (text, authors, frequency, amount per week); required course
assignments; nature of any student projects; and how students will be
evaluated. The University "Syllabi Policy" can be
found here
The University policy on credits is found under Section 4A of "Standards for Semester Conversion" found here. Course syllabus information will be retained in this system until new syllabus information is entered with the next major course modification. This course syllabus information may not correspond to the course as offered in a particular semester. (Please limit text to about 12 pages. Text copied and pasted from other sources will not retain formatting and special characters might not copy properly.) BMEn 3111 Biomedical Transport Processes Spring 2014 Instructor: Professor R.T. Tranquillo Office Hours: Monday 2:153:15 in 400 FordH, Thursday 10:0011:30 in 6101 NHH (primarily nonlab questions) Tel: 6256868 Email: tranquillo@umn.edu (put 3111 at the start of the subject line) TA: Chris Valley Office Hours: Thursday 1:303:30 in 4101 NHH (nonlab questions only) Email: vall0087@umn.edu (put 3111 in the subject; send him a message to get on the email announcement list if you have not already received email from us) Lectures: MWF 10:1011:00 (AkerH 209) Recitations: T or Th 9:059:55 (RapsonH 31  Tues, AkerH 225  Thurs, except the weeks of Mar 19, Mar 26, Apr 2 when they are held in ME 314, an IT Instructional Computer Lab) Problem Session: W 12:201:10 (Rapson 58) These sessions start week 2 and are optional. Materials are posted online. Course Objectives: In terms of subject matter: 1) Learn fundamentals of mass, heat, and momentum transport as applied to biomedical problems 2) Learn numerical methods required to compute solutions of related equations In terms of ABET accreditation: a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering c) an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs d) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice. e) an understanding of biology and physiology, and the capability to apply advanced mathematics (including differential equations and statistics), science, and engineering to solve problems at the interface of engineering and biology. Prerequisites: IT upper division undergraduate and completion of BMEn 3001 or consent of instructor (the numerical methods of 3001 makes 3001 a prerequisite; students lacking 3001 can take 3111 under the assumption they will review the material in Dunn, Constantanides & Moghe see the end of this document). Textbook: Transport Phenomena in Biological Systems: A Textbook for Biomedical Engineers by G. A. Truskey, F. Yuan and D. F. Katz, 2nd edition (available from the bookstore or as a less expensive online option from this URL, but note this text is also currently used in BMEN 5311, in case you plan to take it: http://www.mypearsonstore.com/bookstore/product.asp?isbn=0131569880) "Numerical Methods in Biomedical Engineering" by S. M. Dunn, A. Constantanides & P. V. Moghe (same text as was required in BMEn 3001) Handouts: Most if not all handouts can be downloaded from the BMEn 3111 page on the 3111 Moodle 2.0 site. Examinations: There will be three 50 min exams during lecture periods and a final exam during the scheduled time of Finals Week, held in the rooms stated in the schedule below. The exams will test everything covered in lectures, recitations, and reading assignments, from the beginning of the course until almost the exam date (see syllabus for details), although each exam will stress the material since the last exam. Exams will be open book and notes. Per UMN policy, makeup exams will only be given in the case of conflicts with UMNsanctioned events and documented personal emergencies approved by the instructor. Homework: Homework problems related to lectures will be assigned about once per week and due at the start of lecture on the date stated (Fridays will be targeted). A homework assignment may be worked on and submitted jointly by up to 3 students, whose names must be printed and signed on the front page as a declaration it was a joint effort; only a single copy should be submitted for the group. Unless indicated otherwise, all problems have the same value. No credit will be given for homework submitted late. Grading Policy: Midterm Exams (3 @ 15%) 55% Final Exam 33% Homework 12% Requests for regrades on exams or homework will be accepted only if submitted to Prof. Tranquillo by the lecture after the item is returned and/or the answer key is posted. In such a case you must submit the original and a separate signed page describing exactly what is being requested for regrading and why. Regrades for the Final Exam will not be possible. The course grade based on weighted score and curve established by Prof. Tranquillo. If an S/N option is declared, an S grade will require a performance of C grade or higher based on the weighted course score. (S/N is not an option for BME majors.) Incomplete grades will be granted only under exceptional circumstances, provided that the majority of course work has been completed. Request for late withdrawals from the course will not be accepted. I.T. Policy on Scholastic Conduct: In the cases of homework plagiarism (e.g. similarity judged to be noncoincidental between two or more submissions) or exam cheating, zero credit will be given for the work in question for the first occurrence and a course grade of F with referral to the I.T. student conduct office in the second occurrence. This applies to all students who signed the item having the infraction regardless of who may or may not be responsible for the plagiarism. Email Policy: The instructor and TAs will respond to email as quickly as possible. You should not expect an immediate response (or even within 12 hr), and the response may simply be that you need to come to office hours  email is not an efficient means to convey nontrivial responses.
