assignments

Homework assignments are due at the beginning of each Friday's class.
Late work will NOT be accepted without prior arrangement.

  due Mon Feb 2

Homework 1

From Chapter 1 of Project Physics II
Make sure you write a few paragraphs (complete sentences!!!) describing what you have done, how/why you decided to do that, and then summarize your results. If it asks for a graph, don't just show the graph without any interpretation! For problem 1.8 make sure you write down all of your parameters and bring them to class on Friday -- we will compile the results and discuss whatever you find.
All three of these projects refer to a data file that you can access here: Chapter 1 Datafile

  due Fri Feb 6

Homework 2

From Chapter 2 of Project Physics II
I know this is a lot. But let's really try to push through it all and get back on track with the syllabus.

  due Fri Feb 13

Homework 3

Note that this time I want you to bring a copy of your work and final results to class on Friday. Please type up the assignment or else write VERY neatly, and be sure to explain your reasoning behind every step of your calculations. I'm FAR more interested in knowing that you understand the process than I am in the actual answer. I will describe in more detail what I am looking for on Monday.

Homework 4

Note that this time I want you to bring a copy of your work and final results to class on Friday. Please type up the assignment or else write VERY neatly, and be sure to explain your reasoning behind every step of your calculations. I'm FAR more interested in knowing that you understand the process than I am in the actual answer. I will describe in more detail what I am looking for on Monday.
From Chapter 4 of Project Physics II

  due Fri Feb 27

Homework 5

Again, please bring your work to class so we can discuss your results. Either type up your results or write VERY neatly. Do NOT turn in your scrap paper. Instead, you should rewrite your solutions into a neat, orderly, non-squished, and well explained final product.
From Chapters 11 and 12 of Understanding Physics

Book Feedback

Email Travis and I your feedback on his Gravity Book that we used for the first 2/3rds of the semester. Please include your thoughts on both the book itself as well as on how I used the book in the class. This is worth 25 points as a quiz.
