Each set consists of problems from the document "Homework Problems for PHYS262, Summer 2001" which can be found at http://www2.physics.umd.edu/~hjkn/Phys262/Assgn/ . Homework solutions will be available (after the due date!) at http://www2.physics.umd.edu/~hjkn/Phys262/Soln/ .
Daily Reading Assignments:
There is a tentative daily lecture schedule found at http://www.wam.umd.edu/~hjkn/Phys262/daily.html . Unless otherwise specified, you have to read the material before you come to class to hear the lecture about it.
Use of the WebCT:
The grades for homework, quizzes, and exams will be made available in the WebCT. You are also encouraged to participate in the bulletin-board discussions on the course material including homework assignments. However, you are NOT allowed to post anything which pretends to be the solution to any homework problems.
All quiz problems (without the answers) will be available at http://www2.physics.umd.edu/~hjkn/Phys262/Quiz/
Exams and the solutions will be available at http://www2.physics.umd.edu/~hjkn/Phys262/Exams/
References and Tips:
Please take a look at the course websites of past PHYS262 classes . Although used for another course, there are also excellent studying tips found in the syllabus of PHYS161 Summer 2000.
