Emails concerning details of homework problems will not be answered , because it is time consuming and not effective. Use office hours instead. Discussion Board All routine questions concerning the course should be posted to the UBlearns discussion board where they can be answered by fellow students, TAs or instructors. We ensure that someone will answer them within 24 hours. The discussion board is monitored by a TA or an instructor. Email Technical questions regarding accessing the WebAssign website should be directed to WebAssign technical support. Technical questions regarding using of clickers should be directed to Turning Technologies technical support. The instructors will answer e-mail messages requiring personal attention at their discretion. EMAILS FROM NON-UB ACCOUNTS WILL NOT BE ANSWERED. When sending e-mails, you should use 1. PHY102 as a part of the subject line, and 2. your UB account. Recitation T.A. and Office Hours Check the course website on UBlearns. We make an effort to offer office hours every day of the week. These are the best opportunities for students to discuss homework and study problems. Please make ample use of them. Students who attend office hours regularly usually do well in this course. Textbook College Physics (volume II, PHY102, UB edition, eighth edition) by Serway & Vuille (Cengage Learning, 2008). The book is available at the University bookstore. We recommend that you get the special UB edition for cost reasons (we negotiated a lower price by cutting out one chapter that we will not cover). The following sections will NOT be covered in class and hence NO quiz/home work/exam questions will be asked from them: 15.9, 16.10, 17.7, 19.10, 20.8, 21.13, 26.5, 26.7, 27.4, 27.5, 28.6. Clickers The clickers (model: InterWrite PRS RF ) can be purchased at the bookstore. They also have some used ones. Clickers are used to conduct in-class quizzes, the grades of which will be counted (check grade breakdown below for details). Some other classes (e.g., PHY101 (fall 2008), BIO 200) have been using the same clicker and will be using it this semester. In case you already have one, you can use the same clicker. The bookstore will buy the clicker back once you are done with it. If you get your clicker elsewhere, make sure it is the correct model. Otherwise you will not be able to receive
