What we will  do

Textbook:

 We will be using the textbook of  University Physics by Young & Freedman <=14th Editions.  Below are the chapter sections we will cover during  each week of the semester.  Some sections will be covered in greater depth than others.  It is important to read the sections prior to each class as they will complement the lectures.  The reading assignments for the semester are listed below.

Homeworks:
As you will learn, in physics, the problem solving is fundamental in comprehending the concept. We will be using a web-based system for turning in and grading the homeworks.
You will be able to get to the   homework page here     where you will find detailed instructions for using the system.

There will be homeworks  and three in-class exams.   In-class exam grades and the homework  will be used to determine the course grade. The weighting of the grades will be 27% each
for the in-class exams and 19% for the homeworks.

And finally some No's, since this is a college class:
No cheating,  No chatting,  No napping and No unjustified exam makeups, No smart  phones during the exam....
