1 Chapter 1: The World of Energy, Review of Physics 103 Goals of Period 1 Section 1.1: To review The World of Energy, Physics 103, Part 1 Section 1.2: To review ratios Section 1.3: To illustrate ratio reasoning Section 1.4: To review scientific notation Section 1.5: To review linear and exponential growth 1.1 Review of the World of Energy The World of Energy courses, Physics 103 and 104, are a 10-credit hour, two- quarter sequence. The courses explore the basic principles of physics in the context of energy use. The courses include practical examples from everyday life to help you use energy safely and wisely. They help prepare you to make rational, informed decisions regarding energy policy, the environment, and your own place in the changing World of Energy. Class Activities During two, 2-hour classes per week, your instructor will explain physics concepts and introduce hands-on activities and demonstrations to illustrate these concepts. To help organize, understand, and remember the information from the demonstrations and class activities, students complete and turn in activity sheets during each class. Activity sheets are found in Part I of the Physics 104 Activity Book . Students must be present for the full class period to receive credit for an activity sheet, unless excused by the instructor. Lectures In addition to attending two 2-hour classes per week, students attend a 1-hour lecture. At most lectures, you will see a video or hear a speaker discussing energy use. These videos and lectures are an important part of the course. They explain physics principles and help relate these principles to the role of energy in everyday life. A list of questions for each video is included in Part II of the Physics 104 Activity Book. These questions help students identify important concepts in the videos. Answers to these video questions are not handed in. Instead, students write and turn in a summary of each lecture video of at least two paragraphs. The dates and location of the lectures are given in the course syllabus. Midterm and final exams will include questions based on the material in the lectures. Examinations Course examinations consist of two midterms of 30 questions each and a comprehensive final examination of 45 questions. All exam questions are multiple choice. Midterm exams are given during the lecture hour. The dates of the examinations are listed in the course syllabus. No make-up examinations will be given. If you have a conflict with any of the exam times, notify your instructor immediately.
