TEXT:
Serway and Faughn, College Physics, 7th Edition, Vol. 1,
Thomson/Brooks/Cole
PREREQUISITES: Math 10A, concurrent in 10B or 20A. Trigonometry, vectors, and
calculus will be used in lectures, problem sets and exams.
Help Is Available: Problem sessions will be held on TBA evening. At these sessions,
problems will be worked out and the weekly lectures gone over.
Attendance is voluntary, but students are encouraged to use these
meetings to help master course material and prepare for quizzes.
Individual assistance is available during office hours. The Physics
Dept. tutorial center (location 2102 Mayer Hall) is also open SundayThursday from 3-8 p.m.
COURSE FORMAT:
Physics 1 A-B-C is a lecture course covering mechanics, electricity
and magnetism, waves and modern physics. This sequence is not
suitable for students majoring in Physics, MAE, ECE or CSE. Other
majors should check with their departments for the appropriate
sequence. Physics 1A deals with Newtonian mechanics. The course
schedule follows. A laboratory meeting each week will give hands-on
experience of the physical concepts dealt with in the course. Concurrent
enrollment in the 1A lab is required. Lab information can be found at:
http://physics.ucsd.edu/students/courses/winter2009/.
Homework Assignments: Problem sets are assigned as selections from each text chapter.
Solutions will be available on the course web site. The problems will be
worked in detail during the problem session. The homework will not be
graded, but exam problems may resemble homework that is assigned.
Quizzes:
Problem quizzes will be given beginning the 3rd week (Jan. 23rd, Feb. 2nd,
Feb. 13th, Feb. 27th and Mar. 9th). Your lowest quiz score will be dropped.
There will be no make-up quizzes. You must purchase your own
scantron form for quizzes (No. X101864-PAR). They are available at
the Bookstore and the general store co-op for $0.15 each. You will
need a No. 2 pencil to fill in the scantron. At the first quiz you will be
assigned a quiz code number. This number is yours for the rest of the
quarter. You have to put your proper quiz code number on every quiz
and the final. When results of exams are posted on-line, they will be
listed by quiz code number.
Grading Policy:
Quizzes
60% (Determined by your top four quiz scores)
Final Exam 40%
Add/Drop:
Use WebReg to add/change/drop, drop from waitlists. See Sharmila
Poddar (534-3290; <[email protected]>) in the Physics
Department, Student Affairs Office, Urey Hall Addition, Room 115, if
