Homework Policy
Summer physics moves at a fast pace; it is more difficult than usual to keep up with the lecture topics. It is very necessary to complete the homework in sync with lecture, therefore all homework assignments will be due at the beginning of the next lecture. As an appeasement, you will be allowed to pick which homework problems that you want to turn in. After each lecture, work out 7 homework problems from your book: they must cover all topics discussed in lecture, they must require nontrivial calculation, and you must explicitly show all of your work. Suggested problems are labeled in orange on the schedule.

Tentative Lecture Schedule
Here are my very rough lecture notes PDF file. They will become much more important when we cover the modern component.
