General Physics : Oscillations, Waves, Sound and Light Discussion sections: - attend - First 15 minutes – solving a practice problem in groups of three students - First 15 minutes – problem discussion, TA feedback - Last 20 minutes – either solving another practice problem in groups How to succeed in this course: - Solving homework problems is the best way to learn and to prepare for exams. Your grade is determined by how well you can solve problems ! Notes - Read the relevant sections of the textbook before coming to lectures and discussion sections - Ask questions , attend my office hours and your TA office hours. Utilize the physics tutoring center (RH 142, Mo-Th 5:30pm – 9:30pm).
