Oct 12, 2017
Two updates have been made to the syllabus:
1) If you are more than 10 min late to a discussion section, you will not be counted as participating in the discussion. This will result in 50% loss in the next group quiz score. This rule will be applied starting after quiz 2.

2) There was a request for a supplementary text. We suggest the following textbook as a supplement:
Tipler and Mosca, Physics for Scientists and Engineers, sixth edition, volume 1.
This book is not required for the course, but may give you additional insights on the topics we are covering, as well as additional problems.
