Transcript of PH 121 Introduction

Introduction To Physics 121
How do we learn Physics?
Surely not just this.
Lecture, lecture, lecture
Read the book
Do the homework
This can be a good way of learning but is often dull, I'll do what I can to make it more exciting
This can be good too, especially if it is before a class.
Of the three this is probably the best, but I think we can do better
So what are better methods?
Experiments - hands on
Group work - explaining it together
Visual demonstration
Staying on top of it
Learn by study and faith
Holy Ghost
Class Organization
The fine print here is: how do you get the grade?
This will take the form of :
Pre-quizzes ( bit more now)
This has two parts
Group work
This Last area is multi faceted
Homework (15%)
Post-Quizzes (10%)
Tests (7-10%)
