The reading material assigned during a lecture will be a the topic of discussion for the next lecture. STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE THE ASSIGNED READING!!! There will be randomly occurring quizzes - usually multiple choice - worth 10% of the final mark, on the reading assignment. Online Resources The course outline, assignments, old exams, solutions to exams and assignments, as well as the labs/tutorials section assignments will be posted online: Go to personal webpage of Apichart Linhananta physics.lakeheadu.ca/facNstaff/api/linhan.html Click on Teaching webpage Click on Phys1101 Online Assignments/Tutorials: Mastering Physics The 12th edition of University Physics includes the web- based tool Mastering Physics (shown on the right). Mastering Physics is an online-learning tool that includes tutorials and problem solving exercises. All assignments/tutorials must be done online on the Mastering Physics webpage. Although the assignment questions on a Mastering Physics webpage assignment are the same, the data for will be different for different students. So please BEWARE that everyone will have a slightly different assignment Also BEWARE that once the due date has passed, Mastering Physics will no longer allow access to the assignment. Online Resources: Mastering Physics To access go to the webpage: www.masteringphysics.com/site Click on the New Students icon. Follow the instruction on the page This will eventually take you to a webpage that ask for the access code on the Mastering Physics student access kit. Then you will be asked for your name and student ID. Finally you will need the MasteringPhysics Course ID which is MPLINHANANTA01626 Note: Mastering Physics is available if you purchase a new copy the 12th edition of University Physics, but can also be purchased separately Study Groups A research project on teaching at Harvard University led to a report, published in 1990, that states: ‘In every comparison of how much students learn when they work in small groups with how much they learn either in large groups or when they work alone, small groups show the best outcomes. Students who study in small groups do better than students studying alone.’ RECOMMENDATIONS: Students are encouraged to work in groups. Small study groups of 3 to 6 students are optimum.
