PHY 2048: Physics 1 with Calculus, Spring 2010 Instructor: Tomoyuki Nakayama, Office: 2155 New Physics Building, Phone: 352-392-0310 Email: , Web: http://www.phys.ufl.edu/~nakayama/phy2048.htm ________________________________________________________________________________ What are we going to do here? This discussion section offers you an opportunity to apply the knowledge you’ve got in the lecture class to actual problems. Therefore, we spend most of the time working on problems. We normally start our discussion with review of the topics covered during the previous week. I prepare a handout for the review so that we can discuss problems more efficiently. The main purpose of the review is to reinforce and refresh your knowledge and problem solving technique which you must have developed through previous weeks’ lectures and discussion. After the review, we move on to new topics. I will introduce theory, but very briefly, for theoretical background should be given in the lecture class. Instead of giving mathematical derivations of the equations we will use, I will explain the physical meaning of the equations. Once the theoretical introduction is done, then we walk through examples. (This is the main part of our discussion.) Some of the examples worked here are chosen from a homework assignment, others are chosen based on pedagogic purpose. I give you a detailed calculation for each example, except the numerical calculation. The last part of the discussion is quiz. The discussion grade is solely based on the scores on the quizzes, which counts for 20 % of the overall
