# Course: Strength of Materials

**Description**

This curriculum map provides a mapping of content from *Marks' Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers *and* Schaum's Outline of Strength of Materials *to standard Strength of Materials course topics. The author carefully selected relevant examples, videos, tables and figures which he felt would be valuable supplements to any standard Strength of Materials textbook. You can easily incorporate the content into your course by using our copy link functionality to paste a direct link into your school's LMS.

You may also want to consider incorporating AccessEngineering's DataVis into your Strength of Materials course. DataVis is an interactive data visualization tool that helps your students understand and apply material properties. The DataVis Projects library includes several projects specifically designed for Strength of Materials courses.
