Unformatted text preview: Lecture 1, p 1 Physics 214 Waves and Quantum Physics Lecture 1, p 2 Welcome to Physics 214 All course information is on the web site. Read it !! http://online.physics.uiuc.edu/courses/phys214 Format: Active Learning (Learn from Participation) Homework: Do it on the web !! Lecture: Presentations, demos, & ACTs. Bring your calculator. Discussion: Group problem solving. Starts this week Lab: Up close with the phenomena. Starts next week Prelabs are due at the beginning of lab. No prelectures!! Instead, Ask the Prof. See the web site. This Friday only: Bonus point for doing the survey. Textbook: Young and Freedman. Assignments on Syllabus page James Scholar Students: See link on course website for information. Lecture 1, p 3 WWW and Grading Policy Almost all course information is on the web site Here you will find: http://online.physics.uiuc.edu/courses/phys214 • announcements • course description & policies • syllabus (what we’re doing every week) ⇐ Look at it !! • lecture slides • lab information • discussion solutions (at the end of the week) • homework assignments • sample exams • gradebook The official grading policy (See the course description for details) • Your grade is determined by exams, homework, quizzes, labs, and lecture. • The lowest quiz score will be dropped. No other scores will be dropped. • Letter grade ranges are listed on the web. • Excused absence forms must be turned in within one week of your return to class. If you miss too many classes, whether excused or not, you will not get course credit!! Need to send us email? Send it to the right person. See “contact Info” on the web page. Lecture 1, p 4 Lecture 1, p 5 Lectures Use iClickers See “iClickers” on the web page. • We’ll award a point for every lecture attended, up to 15 maximum. “Attended” ≡ responded to ≥ 1/2 of questions. We don’t grade your response. It doesn’t matter which lecture you attend. • Batteries: If the battery-low indicator flashes, you still have several lecture’s worth of energy, i.e., NO iClicker EXCUSES. • Everyone will get iClicker credit for lecture 1, so: . Don’t worry if you don’t have yours today. . Don’t assume that credit in the grade book for lecture 1 means you’ve properly registered (wait ~2 weeks to see). • Once again: NO iClicker EXCUSES. Lecture 1, p 6 iClicker Practice Act 0: What is your major? A . Engineering (not physics) B . Physics C . Chemistry D . Other science E . Something else The lecture next door also uses iClickers. Unless we use a different frequency, there will be interference. So, you may need to change your clicker frequency: Hold the power button for two seconds (the blue light will flash)....
