I-Clicker2, Audience response device, ISBN 0-7167-7939-0, Publishers Bedford, Freeman and Worth Physics 27200 / Physics 272H00 Laboratory Manual , On Course Website under the Course Content tab. COURSE STRUCTURE: The course has three different components: lecture, recitation and laboratory. The lectures will concentrate on developing an understanding of fundamental concepts. In order to achieve this goal you must be an active participant. Ask questions! The recitations will focus on developing problem-solving skills. The laboratory provides computational simulation exercises and hands-on demonstrations that provide the opportunity for you to apply the concepts. COURSE WEBPAGE: DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS PHYS 272 Electric & Magnetic Interactions Spring 2012 http://www.physics.purdue.edu/phys272/ You can find this syllabus, calendar, textbook information, course announcements, learning center hours and other important resources on the PHYS 272 webpage: http://www.physics.purdue.edu/phys272/ . 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 can be found on the course homepage. The CHIP webpage is: http://chip.physics.purdue.edu/public/272/spring2012/ . READING ASSIGNMENTS: A reading assignment schedule is posted online. You should read the assigned sections before coming to each lecture . LECTURES: The lecture will be used to expand upon topics introduced in the text and will contain clicker questions. You are expected to arrive at lecture having read the text, reviewed the lecture slides (posted prior to lecture) and prepared to be an active participant during the lecture period. You will need a wireless keypad ( iClicker or iClicker2- available at the bookstore) in order to participate. During the clicker questions, you will be allowed/encouraged to confer with neighboring students as you contemplate the question. The idea is to provoke you to think more deeply about the material and hopefully learn more. Clicker questions are designed to provide feedback to both the lecturer and the students with regards to understanding important physics...
