PREREQUISITES: College algebra and trigonometry ASSIGNMENTS: A tentative schedule of reading and homework assignments can be found on the course web site (Calendar). Hardcopies will be distributed on the first day of class. LECTURES: The lectures will be used to introduce new material. It will also be your chance to ask questions on materials that you find hard to understand (based on pre-lecture reading). You should not be shy about doing so. Demonstrations will also take place during lectures to illustrate key physics concepts. If you are not prepared for even one lecture, you will quickly fall behind. We are confident that regular attendance in lecture and recitation classes will be rewarded with better grades. You are advised to go over the assigned reading material before coming to each lecture. To encourage active participation we will conduct interactive exercises in class. You will need an iClicker response pad to participate in the exercises. iClickers can be purchased at the Purdue bookstore. You must register the serial number of your iClicker in the Student Gradebook on CHIP or you will NOT receive any credit for the exercises. The interactive exercises will begin during the second week of class. The exercises will
