Assignments

 

  • W assignments are from the Physlet Physics Workbook.

  • Read the designated chapter and study the designated workbook illustrations (WI's) and explorations (WE's) before class discussion on the dates indicated.  These WI's and WE's are not collected for grading.

  • Pre-class Exercises are due 1 hour before class time on the dates indicated.

  • Hand in homework at the beginning of class on the dates indicated.  You should provide a written response to all text problems, WP's, and other physlets included in the homework assignment.
