Homework will be assigned weekly and collected a week later before class starts, unless indicated otherwise.
Problem solving is an essential part of physics. It is not possible to learn the subject without working through problems. I strongly encourage you to collaborate with other students in the class on the homework. Ideally, you should try to find a group of 2-4 people to work with. First, do the problems yourself and then explain your solutions to each other. Research on learning has shown this to be much more effective than working through problems alone.
No exam has been scheduled at this point.
The course grades will be mostly decided by homework grades.
You can contact me anytime you want to, through email or phone.
