6 Welcome Back to Physics 7! This course is deliberately taught in a way to make it more consistent with what current research reveals about how students actually learn subjects like science. The lecture is not designed to function as the means by which you acquire the course content. Rather, it is to be used to provide focus and to provide a framework for your discussion/lab (DL) experience and the time you spend outside of class. Much of your learning will occur as you participate in various types of activities, experiments, and discussions in small groups and as a whole class in DL, and as you carry out the homework assignments between each DL meeting. Lectures Lectures are on Tuesdays in Roessler 66. Lecture A is 7:30-8:50am. Lecture B is 9-10:20am. There will be seven quizzes, one during each lecture except the first on Sept ember 30 and the week of Thanksgiving break. Instructors Emily West [email protected] Office hours: Monday 1 PM Ð 2 PM, TB114 Dr. Wendell Potter [email protected] Office Hours: Thursday 3:40Ð4:30 158 Roessler Email When using e-mail, please include ÒPhysics7CÓ in the subject line. Be sure to include your return email address (and your name) in the body of your message, as it often does not show up in the email header. We would prefer replying to your official UC Davis email address. Discussion/Labs There are eleven different DL sections for 7C, sections A & B. Each DL meeting lasts two hours and 20 minutes and meets twice each week in TB114 (across from Haring Hall). If you must miss a ,DL, you might be able to make it up, if there is another section still doing the same activities. You may attend another DL with the permission of the Instructor. Take a note signed by the Instructor back to your own DL Instructor at the following DL meeting. You may make-up no more than three DL meetings. NOTE: The lab fee for Physics 7C is $21.00 to cover the cost of materials. If you cannot pay this fee, you may be eligible for a fee waiver. Contact the Physics Office, 225 Phys/Geo, before the 20th day of instruction. Students who are Pell Grant Eligible automatically receive a fee waiver.
