Mastering Physics course ID: saslow48322. Use www.pearsonmastering.com. Help Desk: MPHY 135, typically 9am-4pm Monday-Thursday, 9am-noon Friday. Text (Required): Physics 9th ed. by Young, with Modified Mastering Physics, Volume 1. It is expected that you read the text; read the Chapter Summary before reading the Chapter. Optional: Student Solutions Manual, Student Study Guide. iClickers will be required beginning the second week of class. Code AC. Grading: 4 exams 56%; Final (comprehensive) 20%; Lab 8%; Recitation 5%; Class Participation (basically, iClickers) 4%; Homework (Mastering Physics) 7%. You must obtain 70% or better in the Laboratory in order to pass the course. If your Final Exam grade exceeds the lowest of your regular exam grades then, in computing the course grade, the lowest regular exam grade will be replaced by its average with the Final Exam grade. Re-taking this course: Email the Instructor with term and section (no Q-drops) as soon as possible. A lab grade of 80% or better can substitute for retaking the Lab, but attendance is required at Recitation. Last day to drop with no record is Monday, Jan. 26. Last day to Q-drop is Tuesday, April 21. Final Exam is Friday, May 8, 8-10 am. Recitation and Lab Schedule: (Recitation, but no Lab the first week of class.) Section 512 513 514 515 516 Recitation (MPHY 332) T 11:10 am-12:00 pm T 2:20 pm-3:10 pm T 4:55 pm-5:45 pm W 10:20 am-11:10 am W 12:40 pm-1:30 pm Lab (MPHY 235) TA T 12:10 pm-2:00 pm Hunt, Curtis T 3:20 pm-5:10 pm Lawrence, Richard T 5:55 pm-7:45 pm Clark, Steven W 11:20 am-1:10 pm Clark, Steven W 1:40 pm-3:30 pm Hunt, Curtis Labs will be done at www.webassign.net/tamu/login.html; use your NetID and password. Exams: Bring your student ID and a non-graphics calculator to the exams. Each exam’s formula sheet is available at the Course Webpage; a hard copy will be provided during the exam. If you are asked to show your work, do it in a clear and organized fashion. Missed Exams: All missed exams, for whatever reason, will be reported to your Dean’s office. If you miss an exam due to an excused absence (as outlined in University Regulations), then contact your lecturer no later than the next day to arrange a make-up. Non-excused absences cannot be made up. To get the most out of this course, read the appropriate chapter beforehand. Lectures will emphasize ideas and a few key techniques, but for many details you will have to read the appropriate part of the text. To get the most out of your classmates, form a study group. In class I will ask you to get the names and phone numbers of at least three others in the class. If you understand an idea, you will understand it even better after you have explained it to someone else. What is Physics? Physics is the systematic study of the relationships (called physical laws, and expressed mathematically) between measurable quantities. To obtain a physical law: (1) Determine qualitatively the phenomenon being studied; (2) Determine how to make quantitative measurements of this phenomenon; (3) Make the relevant measurements; (4) If you can relate different measured quantities quantitatively, then you have a physical law. 2 ASSIGNMENTS (M = Multiple-Choice, P = Problem) are done online at Mastering Physics – not turned in Wk Week of 1 Jan.19 2 Jan.26 3 Feb.2 4 Feb.9 5 Feb.16 6 Feb.23 7 Mar.2 8 Mar.9 9 Mar.16 10 Mar.23 11 Mar.30 12 April 6 13 April 13 14 April 20 15 April 27 16 May 4 May 8 Topic Chapter: Sections Chapter: Homework Assignment Units; Vectors 1: 1-6 1:MC6,9,13 Vector Addition; Components 1: 7-8 1: P2,5,9,44,45,46,49,61,62 Velocity; Acceleration 2: 1-3 2: MC3,12,13; P3,6,12,17,20 Constant Acceleration 2: 4-6 2: MC5,10,14,15; P34,35,40,45,46,49 Projectiles 3: 1-3 2: P51,54,57,59,66,69,74,79 Circular Motion; Rel.
