"SmartPhysics, Classical Mechanics",by Gladding, Selen and Seltzer, Freeman publisher. The lectures will follow this textbook. The pre-lectures and checkpoint questions are in the on-line access to FlipItPhysics (), which is required. Most of the material in the textbook is included in the online pre-lectures, so the textbook is not absolutely necessary. 2. “Physics for Scientists and Engineers",6th edition, by Serway and Jewett. The homework assignments will be from this textbook, but will be handled on-line through a requiredaccess to WebAssign. The assignments are accessed by each student when they enter the WebAssign website () at a cost of $29.95 for the semester. Students are responsible for their own WebAssign access on-line. It is verystrongly recommendedthat students rent or purchase either an electronic version or a hard copy of this textbook. Inexpensive used copies of the 6th, 7th, or even 8th edition can be bought online (Amazon.com etc.)Introduction This is an introductory course in Classical Mechanics. It introduces the basic concepts and theory of kinematics (motion), energy, momentum, rotational motion, gravitation, rotation of rigid objects and oscillatory motion. You are expected to learn to solve physics problems using calculus. Most students will find this to be a very demanding course that requires a significant amount of work and study time. For some, this will be the most challenging course they will encounter at the college level.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
