I-Clicker, Audience response device, ISBN 0-7167-7939-0, Publishers Bedford, Freeman and Worth , Fall 2010/2011, Andrzej Lewicki and Jennifer Jourdan, LAD Custom Publishing, 2010 COURSE STRUCTURE: The course has three different components: lecture, recitation and laboratory. The lectures will concentrate on developing an understanding of fundamental concepts. The recitations will be devoted to developing problem-solving skills. The laboratory provides hands-on demonstrations to apply the concepts. COURSE WEBPAGE: You can find this syllabus, calendar, textbook, course announcements, learning center hours and other important resources on the PHYS 221 webpage: http://www.physics.purdue.edu/phys221/ . The Physics Department webpage: http://www.physics.purdue.edu . We will use the Computerized Homework In Physics (CHIP) system to assign credit for homework completed during the semester. Instructions for CHIP will be provided on a separate handout. The CHIP webpage is: http://chip.physics.purdue.edu/public/221/fall2011/ . ASSIGNMENTS: A reading and homework assignment schedule is posted on line. You should read the assigned sections before coming to each lecture. Students who read the assigned material before class will find the lecture far more meaningful. DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS PHYS221 Electricity & Optics (Fall 2011) http://www.physics.purdue.edu/phys221/
