Since problem solving skills are a major objective for the course, students have the responsibility to do it on their own. The instructor suggests to do the odd-numbered problems of each chapter for which the answers are in the appendix of the textbook. Do at least half of them, say 5 problems per day, 25 per week, to gain enough experience. The instructor will set one day per week (Tue) aside for problem solving skills, as does the TA in the discussion hour. In addition you have assistance from the Departmental Tutoring Center and the http://www.physics.ucla.edu/class/pdp/ workshops....
