COURSE SYLLABUS COLLEGE PHYSICS I: SUMMER 2011 Instructor : Heidi Estep Email: Emergency Contact: 832-226-4439 Course Description : College Physics I (PHYS 1401) is designed primarily to meet the needs of the pre-professional student and life science major. Problem solving techniques without the use of calculus are developed in the topics of vectors, kinematics, forces, work and energy, momentum, torque, angular momentum, gravity, properties of solids and fluids, heat and thermodynamics. Course Prerequisites : Math 1316 (College Algebra) and a Reading level 7. Required Textbook : Text book – Physics: Principles with Applications 6 th edition by Douglas G. Giancoli (ISBN: 0-13-060620-0). We will be using the book extensively . Attendance Policy : An attendance roster will be passed around every day for you to sign. If you do not sign it when it is passed around, you will be marked absent for that day. If you miss more than 30 minutes of class/lab, you will be marked absent. You will not be allowed to leave lab early. If you complete the lab before class is over, work on your homework, pre-lecture questions, or lab notebook. There is plenty of work to keep you busy. More than 3 absences for ANY REASON will result in an F in the course. It is your responsibility to keep track of your absences. Late Work : Late work is not accepted for any reason. If you are not in attendance when an assignment is collected, you will receive a zero. Rules of Conduct : According to the Student Handbook, students are expected to assist in maintaining a classroom environment that is conducive to learning. This includes no talking, no sleeping, no cells phones, and no eating or drinking in the lab. A violation of these rules will result in dismissal from the class/lab and will count as an absence.
