Assigned Homework: I will assign 6 problems I want you to hand in on the days given above and below. On each assignment, two problems (the same for everyone) will be chosen for detailed grading (worth 10 points). The remaining problems will be worth 1 point each, and 1 point will be given if the assignment is handed-in on-time. 15 points total per assignment. Total of 12 Homework assignments @ 15 points per assignment, 180 total points possible. No late homework will be accepted. Work that shows no clear steps and reasoning (i.e., answers only) will receive zero points. Each of the three chosen problems will be graded according to the following criteria: o Correct diagram or drawing, equations, and reasoning (4 points) o Correct final answer (1 point) The homework problems must be solved following the procedure used in the attached sample.

Grading Scale:

This is a straight grading scale there will be no bargaining for grades. If you have 657 points at the end of the session, then you will receive a B.

Notes: Lectures: Due to the large amount of material covered in this course, it will not be possible to cover everything in the lecture. The purpose of the lectures will be to illustrate and explain the important and difficult concepts and their application to the solution of problems. In order for the lectures to have maximum effectiveness, you need to come prepared. The textbook is a valuable resource with examples and concept questions designed to help you. Therefore, it is essential that you read the material in the text and the lecture notes before the lecture. The lecture will be conducted in the following manner: I will give 10-15 minute mini-lecture on a topic or major concept. I will then work example problems in which I will discuss problem-solving strategies (15-20 minutes). At the end of each lecture, I will pose a question related to the material presented during the lecture in the activity (15-20 minutes). Lecture Notes: All PowerPoint notes will be posted on the SIUE Blackboard (http://bb.siue.edu). The course ID is PHYS152001-University Physics-Spring 2010. It is the students responsibility to print out the notes. Always bring the notes with you. Homework: Homework will be assigned for each chapter. Assigned problems will be posted on SIUE Blackboard. On each assignment, two problems (the same for everyone) will be chosen for detailed grading. All homework assignments must adhere to the following: 1) Your homework must be organized and neat (you may need to use pencil). 2) Write your name at top of first page. 3) Problems should be assembled in sequence and stapled. 4) Indicate your reasoning clearly. Make-Ups: There will be no make-ups for missed activities, homework, or exams (including the final exam). In case of illness or family crises, you must provide documentation to support your claim. Cheating: SIU policies on Academic Dishonesty and Academic Misconduct will be strictly followed. http://www.siue.edu/policies/3c2.shtml Withdrawals: The University Withdrawal Policy will be strictly followed. http://www.siue.edu/policies/2c1.shtml Extra Help: You are encouraged to visit the TAs or myself during office hours. TAs office hours will be held in room SL 2328. Special Accommodations: Students with special needs are encouraged to contact the instructor and/ or Disability Support Services (SSC 1270, 3726) prior to the third week of the course. If official university business requires you to miss a class, please contact the instructor in a timely fashion. http://www.siue.edu/dss/ Advice: Physics is hard! This is why I have assigned a lot of homework, activities, and exams. I believe that the best way to learn is to do, and that's why we will do a lot. All I ask from you is that you give me the best that you can do, and I will do my best to help you along the way. 1. Come to class! I expect regular attendance. If anyone leaves after an activity is given, that person will be given a zero for that activity. If you are too sick to attend class or have to be out of town, just let me know beforehand and I will give you an excused absence; otherwise you will get a zero (0) on any work done on that day. Call the number above and leave a message or email me. Read the assigned chapters before the first class meeting that week. Read your book carefully! Science is not like history. You cannot read it once and expect to retain everything that you read. Physics is more than reading a book. Physics is concepts. Concepts allow you to reason logically and that's what science is -- logic. So read the chapter once (quickly) and then read it again (slowly). Take time to understand the concepts of the chapter. Keep up. Do not cram all the information all at once (the homework and the activities will not allow you to get behind). I have no sympathy for people who fall behind! Come see me if you need help! Either after class, during office hours, or by appointment.


3. 4.

Rules: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

No cell phones in class (especially picture phones)! TURN THEM OFF! Maintain quiet during class. Some students in class are here for a reason. They want to learn! It is extremely rude and disrespectful when people talk during class. Show up on time. Show up on time for exams! If you are late for an exam by a considerable amount of time, you may not get to take the exam. If you arrive before anyone finishes the exam, you may take the exam. If you arrive after the first person turns in his or hers exam, you will receive a zero on your exam! If you have any problems with the class, how it is being run, other students bothering you for answers, cheating, problems on grading homework or exams etc.... Come see me immediately. In these matters, come to my office hours or set up an appointment. I reserve the right to add to this list verbally in class.

Sample of Acceptable Homework Solutions Physics 152 Problem: Vector A has x and y components of 4.00 and 3.00 units, respectively; Vector B has x and y components of 1.00 and 5.00 units, respectively. Find the angle between A and B .

Solution: 1- Draw a diagram to help visualizing the problem.

\ 2- Write the given information. Ax=-4.00, Ay=3.00; Bx=1.00, By=-5.00




A =-4.00i + 3.00j B =+1.00i 5.00j

3- Use the definition of the dot product to find . Dot product A B =ABcos()

By -y

AB 1 A B Then cos( ) = and thus = cos AB AB

4- Find A B .

A B =AxBx + AyBy=-4.00-15.0=-19.0
5- Find AB where A=| A | and B=| B |.
2 2 A = Ax + Ay = 16.0 + 9.00 = 25.0 = 5.00 2 2 B = B x + B y = 1.00 + 25.0 = 26.0 = 5.09

6- Now, we are ready to find by simply substituting the numbers in

AB 1 19.0 1 o = cos 1 AB = cos 25.5 = cos ( 0.745) = 138
