PLEASE NOTE THE CLASSROOM CHANGE!!!
2.Assignment # 1:Review of Probability & Statistics.You
can do this by getting any book on this subject and reading the first
few chapters. Some Power Point Lectures on this material are available
for download on theLecture Page.A homework assignment on the material will soon be given.
Study or Collaboration Groups
Study Groups:Forming study groups to collaborate on homework, etc. is anEXCELLENTidea!
Its easier to learn stuff with friends' help! If you don't have friends in class, maybe you should make some! Istrongly encourageyou to form such groups!This is how physicists work in real situations!However,NO CONSULTATIONwith people who had this course previously is allowed! Also,NOuse
of problem solutions posted in previous years is allowed! This is on
the honor system! It will do you no good to merely copy old solutions!
Copying solutions willNOTteach you physics!
Are you curious about me, my education, experience, research, personal & family?
(I've been at TTU long enough to have had some of your parents in class!)
