The lectures will concentrate on developing an understanding of fundamental concepts. The recitations will be devoted to developing problem-solving skills. The laboratory will give you a chance to tests the laws of physics presented in the lecture. Note that different people are in charge of the three components.

ASSIGNMENTS: A tentative reading and homework assignment schedule is at the end of this syllabus. You can always find an up-to-date version on the course website (Calendar). LECTURES: The lecture will be used to introduce new material. It will also be your chance to ask questions and to discuss things that you find interesting or hard to understand. Please do not hesitate to, or be shy about, asking questions. Demonstrations and discussions will take place during lectures to illustrate the physics concepts. If you are not prepared for even one lecture, you will quickly fall behind. We are confident that regular attendance at lectures will be rewarded by better exam and homework grades. A tentative reading and homework assignment schedule is at the end of this syllabus. You should read the assigned sections before coming to each lecture. To encourage active participation during the lecture we will have a set of interactive quizzes during most lectures. On-line grading requires an iClicker response pad, which can be purchased at the Purdue bookstore. You have to register the serial number of your iClicker in the Student Gradebook on CHIP. The lecture interactive quizzes will start during the second week of classes. We will not be able to cover all the material in the lectures so parts you will need to read
