**Text and Other Course Materials**:

S. Lea & J. Burke, *Physics: The Nature of Things*
(Brooks/Cole Publishing, 1997) is **required**. We will cover
material from Volume 2, but your will need to have Volume 1 or the
Combined Volume for reference.

The accompanying Student Solutions Manual is **optional**, but
recommended.

A Course Performance System (CPS) electronic response unit is **required**.
Purchase your response keypad from the bookstore; it comes with
instructions. Follow the instructions to
register on-line at the CPSOnline web site (www.einstruction.com).
You will need to pay a fee of $12.50 via credit card to enroll with
eInstructiion. Your keypad will be linked to your name so that you can
get credit for
your in-class responses. The class key for this class is F4523N976.
Please get your pad and register before the first class meeting.

We will be using an on-line homework system called ilrn (web site www.ilrn.com).
There are two **optional **items available which may help you.
There is a package containing a setup CD and a guide to ilrn; it is not
required since the needed instructions are available on-line, but it
can
save you a lot of download time if you have a slow internet connection.
Also available for sale at the bookstore is an access code which will
allow you use the tutorials available at the ilrn web site. Again, this
is optional; the required on-line problems are accessible at no cost,
but the tutorials might be useful if you need help in problem solving.

**Prerequisites**: Math 227 with a grade of C or better and
Physics 220 with a grade of C or better. (Note that C- is not "C or
better.")

If you took the equivalent of Physics 220 (Physics with Calculus I – Mechanics) or Math 227 (second-semester calculus) at another college, you will need to bring me a transcript copy.

**Co-Requisites**: You must take the accompanying lab course,
Phys 232, concurrently (unless you already have credit for Phys 232).
Physics/Astronomy majors should take Math 228 concurrently.

**Assignments**: There will be weekly required homework
assignments. A minimum 50% average homework grade is required. You may
discuss the homework problems with me and with other students, but the
writeup of the problems must be done on a totally individual basis.
Solutions will be handed out or posted, so **no late homework will be
accepted. **We plan for most of the homework to be online. You will
be able to find out right away if you have done the problem correctly,
and can re-try problems that you get wrong. The site for the ilrn
system is www.ilrn.com;
the enrollment code for this class is E-4NJGB28HVH44W.

**Exams and Grades**: There will be two midterm exams, a final
exam, and frequent quiz problems (based on reading). The quizzes will
mostly use the electronic response system. Grades will be assigned
according to the following approximate percentages: homework, 15%;
in-class electronic response questions, 20%; midterms & quizzes,
35%; final, 30%.

**Laboratory**: You must enroll in a section of the accompanying
laboratory course, Physics 232. You will need to purchase a laboratory
manual and notebook; your lab instructor will provide the details. See
the lab schedule here.

**Discussion Sections**: Optional discussion/help sessions will
be held weekly at several different times to be announced.

**Efficient Method of Study:** **Before** the lecture, read
at least the indicated text sections and study the examples. Read the
sections again after the lecture. At the very least, attempt all the
assigned problems and if at all possible, work through some additional
problems. Try to work the homework problems from fundamental
relationships rather than by using special case formulae. Compare your
solutions to the posted ones.** Ask questions** in the lecture,
after the lecture, in discussion sections, and in office hours.
Finally, **keep up** with the material as it is covered. Each new
section will build on the previous material, and you will lose much of
the benefit of the lectures and assignments if you fall behind.

**
Learning Objectives:**

To develop an understanding of electrical and magnetic phenomena,
including the topics shown on the course schedule, and to develop the
ability to apply this knowledge to the solution of problems.
