You will need Tipler
& Mosca, Volume 2 (the Custom UW edition at the
bookstore). The text is available electronically
as well through th eWebAssign system. When you
pay for the homework, you have access to the
text. We use that often personally. You
also need Tutorials in Introductory Physics and the
Lab Manuls. Please print this out and check off
as you acquire the items.
Lectures will use Clickers
already on Day 1, so get one now if you don't already
You will need to sign

"joining" 122D. (Not 122A or 122C. DON'T confuse
SmartPhysics is a
series of lessons (Prelectures) and questions
(Checkpoints) that you complete prior to most
lectures. It is a fantastially useful system
that we have tested extensively here at UW.
Student feedback has been very very positive.
The Lectures will be wrapped around most of the
SP lessons, your answers, your explanations, and
system also provides homework problems; many are
interactive and allow you to work with hints and
other modern online tools. You have access to
these homework lessons as purely optional materials
for you. You do not have to do any of them,
but they provide extra practice problems with
feedback and these problems are quite appropriate to
the material we are presenting.
You need to sign up
for our actual, graded homeworks. The
WebAssign homeworks will be due weekly.
Physics 122 is taught with a
team approach. You will have different
professors in charge of the tutorial and laboratory
components, and I will be in charge of lecture section
D. Prof. Hertzog will be lecturing sections A and
C. Physics 122A, C and D are more or less the same --
same book, homework, prelectures, preflights, labs, tutorials,
and exams. But, you will need to attend your
assigned lecture secction to get credit for Clicker
Lectures for 122D
will be in PAA
A118 on MWF 1:30 PM - 2:20 PM.
Midterm exams will
be held on Thursday afternoons at 5:00 to 6:20 in a room
