Recitation: Friday 9:30 – 10:20am in Room 203 Physics Bldg. Textbook: Cutnell & Johnson Physics 7 th or 8 th Edition, Volume One Cource http://www.physics.purdue.edu/phys149 Website: CHIP Administrator: Dr. V. K. Saxena Recitation Instructor: Andrew Kramer Office: Room 176 in Physics Building Office: Room 319 in Physics Building Phone: 494-9575 Phone: 494-5399 E-mail: [email protected] Email: [email protected] General Information: Physics 149 is part of the sequence of physics courses you will take if you continue in engineering or physics. In particular, it is designed to prepare you for Physics 172.Since Physics 149 is a non-calculus course, it covers less material than Physics 172. Most, if not all, of you will be taking Math courses this semester and it is essential for this course and your future engineering and science courses that you have the necessary math skills. Prerequisites Are: Algebra, geometry, analytic geometry, trigonometry, high school physics, coordinate systems and vectors. Lecture: Monday and Wednesday at 9:30-10:20am in Physics Room 203. You are expected to attend all lectures, thus, attendance will be taken. Preparation for the lectures will include reading the assignment from the text for the date indicated on the lecture reading assignment sheet. You may find that some topics assigned will not be discussed in the lectures, due to lack of time. However, you should not conclude that these topics are unimportant and/or are not suitable for examination questions. You are responsible for ALL reading assignments in your textbook. Spare assignment sheets and this document are available in the Physics Undergrad Office, located in Physics Room 144. Homework: Homework assignments are specified in the Recitation Assignment Sheet. There are two types of assignments. Some problems are assigned by the instructor presented to you on special assignment sheets and they will be hand graded by your TA.
