Mastering Physics Student Registration Instructions
PLEASE READ THIS THOROUGHLY SO THAT
I DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER 30+ QUESTIONS ABOUT IT!!!
The homework will be done on-line at Mastering Physics. If you've never used it
before, bear in mind that I'm fairly new to it also! So, I ask that you please be
patient with me as we learn about it together. I've set up our course & a
PRACTICE ASSIGNMENT is posted. Instructions on how to access the site are
below. The practice assignment isn't for credit, but I want you to do it because it
teaches you how to use Mastering Physics. It is called "Mastering Physics
Intro". It is important for you to do it, but I won't count your score on it in your
grade. If you do it, it won't count, no matter what score you get. But, at the
session's end, I'll lower your homework grade by 5% if you haven't done it. It
should be open to you once you have registered on Mastering Physics, & it will
be closed (you can no longer work on it!) after Tuesday, July 15 at 11:30pm.
This is the way it will usually be. I will ATTEMPT to post assignments at the
time we start a chapter. They typically will be due at 11:30pm about a week later.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR STUDENT REGISTRATION &
ENROLLMENT IN OUR COURSE ON MASTERING PHYSICS
Registration & Enrollment Steps
A. Go to Mastering Physics Here. (http://www.masteringphysics.com/).
B. On the left of the first page is the word "Register". Below that is a link, "New
Students". Click on that link & follow the instructions from there. The
website should guide you through this process.
C. To go further, you need a student access code. This should have been
provided if you bought a new textbook at one of the bookstores. If you bought
a used book or if you bought a new book on-line, you'll probably have to buy
one. You can do this on-line by clicking "Buy Now".
D. As you go through the registration process, you will create a personal student
E. To enroll in my course, you must enter the Course ID, NOT the course title.
Our Course ID is MPMYLES15040
This is case sensitive! After entering this, you should then be allowed to
register on the site for access to the course assignments.
F. Our text is Physics For Scientists & Engineers, (4th Ed) by D.C. Giancoli.
Obviously, when you register, you need to choose that book if you are
asked about the book! That's the book that my on-line assignments will be
from. NOTE: There may be another book by text by Giancoli there that is an
option. It is NOT calculus based! DON'T REGISTER FOR THAT ONE!
Once you are registered, you can access the area for our book.
