Each day’s class will include a presentation and various small- group activities, designed to engage you in learning the material. Course Resources: Course handouts, daily questions, announcements, and grades will be available via D2L. To log onto the D2L course site, go to http://d2l.arizona.edu/ and click on UA Net ID Login. Once you log in, you will be able to select PHYS 102 from the list of all your courses that are using D2L. To access handouts, select Content . The daily questions will be available in Quizzes . Please check D2L frequently, as this is where we will post important announcements. Homework assignments will be completed via Mastering Physics. To enroll in this course, follow the directions on the separate handout. If you purchased a used copy of the text, which doesn’t include the Student Access Kit, you can purchase access to Mastering Physics by going to www.masteringphysics.com , clicking on the cover image of the course text and selecting “Buy Now.” The cost for access purchased separately is $44.50. (This, plus the cost of a used text from the UA Bookstore, is $2 more than the cost of a new text with the Access Kit.) Math Pre-Requisite The math prerequisite for this course is placement into College Algebra (MATH 110 at UA), which corresponds to a score of 250 or above on the Math Readiness Test. If your math skills are rusty, you can go to http://math.arizona.edu/~placement/mrt/whichtest.html , and scroll down to MRT A Practice, where you can access practice problems, an online assessment, and algebra review sites. If your math placement is below College Algebra, you should consider taking this course when you are ready for College Algebra.
