PHYSICS 149 - Spring 2011 Mechanics, Heat and Wave Motion Lecturer: Prof. N. Neumeister Office: Room 374 Physics Building Phone: 49-45198 E-mail: [email protected] Office hours: By appointment Class: Lecture: Monday and Wednesday 10:30 – 11:20 AM, Room 333 Physics Recitation: Friday 10:30 – 11:20 AM, Room 333 Physics Textbook: College Physics , Giambattista, Richardson, and Richardson, 3rd Ed. Vol. 1 (McGraw - Hill) Course http://www.physics.purdue.edu/phys149 Website : CHIP Administrator: Dr. V.K. Saxena Recitation Instructor: Andrew Kramer Office: Room 176, Physics Building Office: Room 319, Physics Building Phone: 494-9575 Phone : 494-5399 E-mail: [email protected] E-mail : [email protected] COURSE STRUCTURE: Physics 149 is an algebra-based, 3-credit hour course that is part of the sequence of physics courses you will take if you continue in engineering or physics. In particular, it is designed to prepare you for Physics 172. Most, if not all, of you will be taking Math courses this semester and it is essential for this course and your future engineering and science courses that you have the necessary math skills. The course has two different components: lecture and recitation. The lectures will concentrate on developing an understanding of fundamental concepts. The recitations will be devoted to developing problem-solving skills. ASSIGNMENTS: A tentative reading and homework assignment schedule is at the end of this syllabus. The reading assignment should be done before attending lecture. Students who read the assigned material before class will find the lecture far more meaningful. 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. 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 from the textbook. This is not an easy course! A large amount of material will be covered so it is very important that you do not fall behind. Our advice to be successful in this course is: 1) Attend class. 2)
