Class Format - Announcements - Mixture of Power Point and Chalk Board/Overhead - Some theory …. Some problems… - Power Point slides are available on class website & my own website - Please ask questions (and correct me!). Course details -- see syllabus Course: It is assumed that everyone has credit in PHYS 1100 so the material in Chapters 1-6 (vectors, 1- and 2-D kinematics, Newton’s laws) will only be reviewed in the Frst two weeks of class. If you tested out of PHYS 1100, you will be assumed to know this material and should review it carefully if you don't remember it well. You will be tested on this material in the third week of class. After the Frst few weeks the course assumes a more normal pace and will cover most of the section contained in chapters 7 – 20, with the exception of chapter 17, which will be skipped. The core material of the course covers concepts in mechanics, ±uids, wave motion, and thermodynamics. Use the “Study Guide,” we do! The lecture schedule will speciFcally indicate sections of text that are covered on a given week. Students should read and become familiar with this material before coming to class. Course grades will be determined by weekly quizzes, Home Work, four 1-hour mid-term tests, and a Fnal (²ollowing).
