Discussion sections are two times per week.
They are useful for help on lecture topics, HW, and exam preparation.
Discussion sections start week of Jan. 21.
|Laboratories: Laboratories are three hours long, once per week. Labs
start week of Jan. 28.
There are eleven labs this semester (note that we added one to the
schedule after the course started). You must complete at least ten of
them, or you will receive a failing grade for the entire
course. If you complete only ten of them, the entire lab portion of
your grade will be reduced by 30%. Missed labs can be made up with a
preapproved excuse (this needs to be a good one!). With your
TA's approval, labs can be made up during an alternate lab period that
same week, or during the following exam week. The message here is you
should complete all the labs!

||All labs must be completed to
pass the course.
||We will choose one lab for a
written 'lab report' (see labs page)

Tutoring: If you want more or different help from what the Teaching Assistants or Professors can provide, you might
consider working with a tutor. There are several options:
Physics Club: The University Physical Society (UPS) provides free drop-in tutoring. The
tutors are mainly undergraduate physics
and astronomy/physics majors.
Private Tutors: There are Physics graduate students (not your TA's) who will provide tutoring for an hourly fee.
Greater University Tutoring Service (GUTS): Volunteer tutors.
Physics Learning Center: Regular
tutoring in small groups led by Physics Peer Mentor Tutors.
Requires a consistent time commitment throughout the semester.
Comments: There is a
drop box where you can leave comments and feedback about the course
