Schedule

Students are expected to study the web-based material, review the corresponding material in textbooks, and complete the homework assignment from the previous module during the time interval indicated in the schedule below. 

class main topic study these problems before class

11-Sep Newton's laws:  Motion of a single particle Module 1
18-Sep Impulsive forces, collisions Module 2
25-Sep Newton's laws:  Rigid body motion Module 3
2-Oct Lagrange's and Hamilton's equations Module 4
9-Oct Oscillations and waves Module 5
16-Oct Motion in a central potential Module 6
23-Oct Relativistic kinematics and dynamics Module 7
30-Oct General Physics Module 8
6-Nov Electrostatics Module 9
13-Nov Dielectrics, DC circuits Module 10
20-Nov Magnetostatics/Magnetic Materials Module 11

The Web-based material is divided into 11 modules.  Each modules has a physics theme.  It reviews concepts and formulas associated with this theme and presents many solved problems.  Each solution addresses the following points:

Students should study at least 10 of the solved problems each week.  They should make sure they understand the solutions amd maybr suggest different ways to arrive at the same solutions.
Student unfamiliar with the the concepts and formulas needed to solve a problem should refer to their junior/senior-level undergraduate textbook for a review.
