OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE YOUR COURSE GRADE IN PHYSICS 124!
Below is a link for you to complete an online survey about physics learning (Note: this is NOT a course evaluation.) If you complete it, with effort, you will earn an extra 1 % to be added to your total score.
The research study leaders will be the only people with access to your answers; as your instructors we will receive information only as to whether or not you have taken the survey with effort. Completing the survey will help your grade.
You are expected to take the online survey by May 4th at midnight; it will take about 10 minutes to complete. Here is the link for the online survey

iClicker transmits signal by seeing green light flash when you make a
choice. If green light does not flash, your answer was not
transmitted to the signal receiver. Credit for iClicker questions
cannot be given for malfunction in the transmitter. Read iClicker information on the syllabus.
