I-Clicker, Audience response device, ISBN 0-7167-7939-0, Publishers: Macmillan MPS. COURSE STRUCTURE: The course has two different components: lecture and recitation. The lectures will concentrate on developing an understanding of fundamental concepts. The recitations will be devoted to developing problem-solving skills. PREREQUISITES: PHYS 172 and MA 162 are prerequisites for this course. You are expected to have a good understanding of classical mechanics, be able to differentiate and integrate simple functions, and be familiar with vectors, including dot and cross products. COURSE WEBPAGE: You can find this syllabus, course announcements, learning center hours and other important resources on the PHYS 241 webpage: http://www.physics.purdue.edu/phys241/ . 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/241/fall2011/ . ASSIGNMENTS: A reading scheduled is posted on the course webpage (on left side bar, click on Calendar). The homework assignment schedule is posted on the CHIP website. You should read the assigned DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS PHYS241 Electricity & Optics (Fall 2011) http://www.physics.purdue.edu/phys241/ sections before coming to each lecture. Students who read the assigned material before class will find the lecture far more meaningful. LECTURES: The lecture will be used to introduce new material and will contain a quiz . It will also be your chance to ask questions and to discuss things that you find interesting or hard to understand....
