Sebeson**Course Resources Web Page http://jsebeson.webs.com/**• Syllabus • Course Introduction • Reading and Homework Assignments • Quiz and Exam Schedule • Lab Schedule • Other files and information J. M. Sebeson**PHYS-216 with Lab**• This course is introductory college physics without calculus. • Covers basic classical Newtonian mechanics (motion, forces, energy, momentum). • Laboratory activities include experiments and computer simulations to illustrate the main topics. • In addition to learning basic physics, the course is intended to develop skills in problem solving and quantitative reasoning. J. M. Sebeson**Text and other requirements**• Textbook: Alan Giambattista, Betty McCarthy Richardson, and Robert C. Richardson, College Physics, 2nd Edition, McGraw-Hill, 2007. • Also recommended: . S. Walker (Rasinariu, ed.), College Physics, Pearson Custom Publishing, 2007. (Available in the library; homework problems are from this text and will be provided in a handout) • Lab: Handouts are instructor provided • Familiarity with Microsoft EXCEL is required for some labs • Scientific calculator • TI-89 recommended but not required • As a minimum, the calculator should be able to: • Handle trig and inverse-trig functions • Handle numbers in scientific notation J. M. Sebeson**PHYS-216 Topics**• Units, scientific notation, dimensional analysis, vector analysis • One Dimensional Motion • Two Dimensional Motion, Projectile Motion, Circular Motion • Rotational motion • Newton's Laws and their Applications • Work and Energy, Kinetic Energy, Power • Potential Energy, Conservation of Energy • Other topics, time permitting J. M. Sebeson**Grading Weights**• Homework: 20% • Quizzes: 30% • Final Exam: 30% • Lab: 20% J. M. Sebeson**Grading Scale**• Each element (and the total grade) is based on a point system (rounded up to the nearest tenth of a point) where: • 90 to 100 = A (e.g. 89.91=90.0=A) • 80 to 89.9 = B (e.g. 89.89=89.9=B) • 70 to 79.9 = C • 60 to 69.9 = D • Below 60 = F J. M. Sebeson**Other Important Information**• Reading and homework assignments will be posted on the Course Resources Page. • Quiz and test schedules will be included in the assignment list on the Web Page. • No work is dropped. • Grades will be posted in the eCollege gradebook. • Watch your email for any course announcements. J. M. Sebeson**Tips and Tricks for this Course**• Remember that quizzes and tests are 60 percent of your grade (quizzes 30% and final 30%). • It pays to do the homework and turn it in on time! Homework and labs are “easy” grades. • The best way to learn physics is to work as many problems as you can. • Don’t blow off labs; late labs don’t count and no labs are “dropped.” • Keep class handouts; these are basically lecture notes and all quizzes and tests are based upon them. Make sure you understand them. J. M. Sebeson**My Background**• Education: • B. S. Physics, 1969, Michigan State University • M. S. Electrical Engineering, 1971, Northwestern University • M. S.
