Physics 130, Summer Semester 2021
There are a number of available resources to aid your physics learning. There is much additional information on the course Desire2Learn site. Click on the D2L link in the navigation bar above. Do explore the site.
The first resource is your text book. However, a single book is often limited in the descriptions, methods, and examples that it has. Thus, you are encouraged to seek alternate explanations and examples from other books. The Andersen library has a number of physics books in the stacks, just do a keyword search for the subject you're looking for.
Your fellow students are a great source for learning. Another person may have a different way of looking at a problem that aids your understanding. Also, by explaining a physics concept or problem to others, you gain a better understanding of that topic.
Working together on problems is acceptable, but each person must do their own work. Students must adhere to academic integrity for all coursework.
There are many other Web sites with useful information (and even more with useless information!). If you find a site that you think would be helpful to the class, e-mail it to me, and I will post it here.
You may also find my list of Physics Links a useful starting point.
If you have questions or problems, please come see me, send me e-mail, or call. See my schedule for my office hours. Also, if my door is open (which it usually is if I'm in) stop by.
