Unformatted text preview: Applied Physics PHY 1001 20092 Instructor: C.J. Roddy Office hours: M-F 8:00-4:00 pm Office: 7/144 Phone: 954-201-6678 email: firstname.lastname@example.org Course Description: This course introduces the fundamental concepts that describe the physical world. Topics include units and measurement, vectors, linear motion, energy, power, momentum, fluid mechanics, heat, electricity, magnetism, light, and optics. Goals and objectives Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the principles involved and display a fundamental problem-solving ability for the topics covered. General education: Students who are successful in this course will improve in the following general education areas: 1. reading, 2. mathematical skills, 3. problem solving, 4. critical thinking, and 5. cooperating with others. Required: Textbook: Conceptual Physics by Paul Hewitt 10 th edition Students are responsible for all material presented in class, including announcements about changes in course procedures. Attendance: You are responsible for all material presented in class, including announcements about course procedures. Exams, quizzes, and homework often include questions on material presented only in class , so performance on these indirectly reflects attendance. If you miss in-class homework it will be recorded as a zero. There will be no make-up for missed material . Important Notice Starting fall 2007, faculty will report student non-attendance. If you stop attending class prior to the withdrawal date, you will be administratively withdrawn from class and receive a W or, if it is your third attempt, an F . If you stop attending class after the withdrawal date, you will receive a WF that will then be computed as an F in your GPA ....
