Fall 2017

August 15, 2017 Leave a comment

Welcome to the Fall 2017 section of PHYS 221.  Let me point out a few (hopefully useful) notes:

  • The syllabus is linked at the top.  Read it.
  • We will use the textbook Matter and Interactions – use it.  Go ahead and read it now.  The whole thing.
  • There are TONS of videos to help you with the material.  The videos link above has a list of videos.
  • The primary objective of class time (the time that we meet) is to work on difficult things.  If you don’t read the textbook beforehand, class time might be useless to you.
  • In the past, I asked students to write notes to future students to help them with the class.  Since you are the future students (according to them), this is for you. Advice for future students.
