LECTURES Will generally follow the text. Try to scope  assigned material before you come to class. Please ask questions in class or during my office hours. Click here for a review of Physics 4B.  4C is recommended and we'll brush up on topics from that course. I'll  be honest. This course may get hectic. I strongly recommend you form study groups; explore the wealth of resources I've tried to provide.  LECTURE NOTES POSED ON MASTERINGPHYSICS.COM SITE.
EMAIL Subscribe with the college to the class email list for updates, reminders, corrections, discussion of the course material and more! 
HOMEWORK
Homework --ON  MASTERINGPHYSICS.COM will be assigned in the form of weekly quizzes based on problems in the text book.. Discussions, some call educated hints,  also will be posted on that web site . The problems are  mission critical but far from impossible.  You must  learn the material so you can move to the next level, including your years after you transfer !  Quizzes, electronically assigned on masteringphysics.com,  will be graded automatically and could account for 36 percent of your course grade. 
EXAMS Tentative dates for three or more midterm exams will be announced. Sample exams will  be posted. You shouldn't  collab. with your friends during  exams. Please  work independently; be original. Line for line, you should shine on your own work.. One or more pages of your own handwritten notes aka cheat sheets are allowed.  Please do not use pages xeroxed from the book or downloaded from the quiz hints or solutions. (You may use two or more pages during the final exam.) Do not bring scratch paper to the exams. The only things you need are a pencil or pen, eraser,  calculator, and your alert mind.  Before the test begins, please put all other things on the floor. Avoid  staying up all night cramming; stay on top of it..  Get your rest,   and you will be blessed for optimal performance. Any disputes on grading must be resolved within one or two days after the exam is returned. No make-up exams are allowed unless you can prove a state of emergency with legal, medical documents. You must take the final exam on the date and time that it is scheduled.
NO LABORATORY The following applies for  class demos and using EXCEL as a general tool for calculations without a free standing calculator. Excel features many powerful mathematical and statistical operations used throughout physics, whether you are a theorist, experimentalist or  engineer/scientist.
Laboratory Room: 1708
Laboratory Schedule:  See the links here,
L1, L2, or L3   for exercises on Excel.  I will provide in-class tutorials on using the software, if requested, and I have ordered a short reference book on Excel that you may wish to buy. You may also get access to Computer Science lab by talking to me. The computers in the school library and Tutorials Center are also available.
GRADING POLICY Grades in the course will be based on a total score consisting approximately of the following percentages:   Quizzes: 36 Midterm exams: 40  Final exam: 24  Letter grades:90-100  A; 80-89 =  B;  63-79 = C; 50-62 = D

\\TENTATIVE COURSE OUTLINE; NOTE: The review period indicated below may be reduced. We may not take a full 6 weeks for review and adjustments to schedule will be announced in class. Stay tuned.//
