The Analytical Physics for Engineers I-B Study Groups program is offered by the university for FREE. Active participation in a study group will help you understand the concepts of analytical physics, which you can then apply to completing your homework and answering questions on exams.

Groups meet once each week for 80 minutes. This spring there will be four study groups with a capacity for 60 students to participate. Your professor views these study groups as valuable so is willing to give you one additional COURSE CREDIT for your serious and consistent participation. You will sign up for this as a one-credit course, and receive a P/NC grade at the end of the semester. If you attend each session meeting, participate meaningfully, you will pass. If you miss more than two sessions, or if you are disruptive to the group, you will receive a NO CREDIT grade.

Snow Storm Announcement

The Tuesday, January 27 workshops in Physics 124 have been canceled.  If you are in a Tuesday section you are still required to complete your out of class assignments.  At your 124 workshop on Tuesday Feb 3 you should hand in the following materials:

  • Rotational kinematics assignment for week of Jan 20. This will be graded. If not submitted, you will receive a zero.
  • Collaborative problem assignment for week of Jan 26.  This will be graded. If not submitted, you will receive a zero.
  • Pre-lab assignment for week of Jan 26.  If you turn this in, you will be excused (grade of EXC) for minilab this week. If not submitted, you will receive a zero.
  • Quiz: you will be excused (grade of EXC) from quiz this week.

Welcome to Physics 124!

As the course progresses, we will be posting important information to this page. To orient yourself, please click on the links above to get some information about the course. Our first lecture will be held on Friday, January 23rd. Before you come to class, please prepare the following things:

  • Read the selected chapter sections from the textbook. The pre-lecture reading assignments each week are provided here. Coming to class having done the reading will be the expectation for the rest of the semester.
  • Do "Introduction to Mastering Physics" to learn how to work with Mastering Physics (this not counted towards grade). The first homework assignment will be due on Thursday before the second lecture.
  • Register and bring your iClicker to lecture (instructions are here).

First assignment: The week of Jan. 20 you are required to complete the exercise "Generating a mathematical description of spinning." If you would like advice on this assignment, you are welcome to go to your assigned workshop the week of Jan. 20.  This is not a required workshop, but is available to you for help on the assignment. The assignment is due at the first required workshop that will be held the week of Jan. 27 (see the schedule for details).

Mastering Physics.  If you were in Analytical Physics IA last semester and used Mastering Physics, you do NOT need to purchase a new access code.  Your MP account from last semester should work. The course ID for this course is MPCIZEWSKI27216. If you took Analytical Physics IA more than a year ago, you may need to purchase a new Mastering Physics license. This can be purchased with the textbook, or online.

If you are having registration problems and need a special permission number, please submit requests through a form on our website.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
