PHYSICS 6 (Fall 2010)
GENERAL PHYSICS I
T, Th 10:00 am – 1:00 pm in AHS 318, and
T, Th 4:10 pm – 4:30 pm in AHS 149 and
Physics I is The first semester of a two-semester, trigonometry-level sequence in general physics designed for Premedical, Predental, Preoptometry, Prepharmacy, Physical Therapy, Medical Technology, Chiropractic, Biology, Geology, Bio-medical Physics and Architecture majors. Physics 6 includes topics in mechanics, heat and sound. Problem solving is an integral part of the course. Students majoring in Physics, Engineering or Chemistry, as well as biology majors who wish to transfer to UC should take Physics 37-38-39.
: After taking General Physics I (Mechanics), the student should be able to:
1. Use algebra and trigonometry to set up mathematical descriptions of physical systems and to calculate measurable quantities that provide an understanding of the physical environment in terms of the concepts listed in the course, such as Projectile Motion, Newton’s Laws, Circular Motion, Work and Energy, Momentum, and Torque.
2. Represent physical phenomena both pictorially and graphically and solve real-world problems by synthesizing physical concepts and applying them to new situations.
: Lecture will begin promptly at 1:00pm (room AHS 149) and will end at 4:10pm. Please be seated in the classroom and prepared to begin working when class begins.
: Lab begins at 1:00pm (room AHS 149) with a pre-lab lecture. Lab work will begin immediately after the pre-lab lecture. The lab will last until 4:10pm. Complete all lab work by 4:00pm and clean your workspace. Take your breaks during lab time.
Attendance is mandatory. “Whenever absences, in hours, exceed the number of hours the class meets per week, the instructor will consider whether there are mitigating circumstances which justify the absences. If the instructor determines that such circumstances do not exist, the instructor may exclude the student from the class.”
If you are given an add slip, you must bring your add slip receipt back the next meeting indicating that you have officially added or your seat will be given to the next student and you will be excluded from class if you try to add again.
Any student withdrawing from class must inform the admissions office of this decision. Students failing to follow the correct procedure for withdrawals will receive a grade of “F” for the semester. No withdrawals are permitted after Sunday November 21, 2010 (the last day to withdraw in person is Friday November 19, 2010). Any student remaining in class after this date must receive a letter grade (A, B, C, D, or F).
