RECITATIONS
: In the recitations, problems from the previous two lectures and homework due the previous Monday will be solved collaboratively, and a quiz will be given on the same material.  The chapters and homework to be covered is given in each recitation box.


HOMEWORK: The online Mastering Physics homework assignments are given in the box for the corresponding recitation.  The deadlines for completion of the homework are rigidly enforced by the online system.

EXAMS: The exams are common exams for the two lectures.  Note that the hour exams during the semester are given in the late evening (NOT in class).  Please check the dates and times and rooms carefully!
