The Physics departement offers Help Sessions that you are encouraged to attend if you are on campus during the day time.
Week 1 homework is now online.
Course meets every Thursday, 7pm to 9:50pm.
This is the third of a three-course sequence teaching fundamental physics to engineering and science majors. Since this is an evening course, the three hour lecture will be a mix of lecture and recitations in which we review homework problems and work on problems together.
A PDF copy of the syllabus can be downloaded here. Please refer to this syllabus for the grading plan and important course information.
Lecture notes, homework solutions, video tutorials, and useful links can be found in the menu bar above. Course updates can be found under quick notes at left.
The Physics department also offers daytime help sessions.
Due to the nature of an evening course, there will be no set office-hours. Instead, the instructor will be available by appointment (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the evenings and some weekend days.
