** Analytical
Physics 211** (Kapp)……………………5 cr hr

__ __

The first of a two-course
sequence in calculus-based physics for students intending to major in science
or engineering. PHY 211 develops the
concepts of mechanics, fluids, vibration, and thermodynamics. Laboratory exercises are included to assist
students’ understanding of these topics and provide experience analyzing
collected data. A working knowledge of
calculus is assumed.

Prerequisite:

Math 191, Calculus 1, limits,
derivatives, and integration, C or better.

Physics 111, or High School
Physics, C or better

The above physics
prerequisite is in place to assure that:

·
The student
understands the concept of a vector and vector components. The student can add, subtract, and multiply
vector quantities.

·
The student is
aware of the SI and English unit system, and the methods of unit conversion.

·
The student had
basic exposure to physical principles in the areas of mechanics, fluids,
vibration, and heat. The student has
attempted the mathematical solution of so called "story problems" in
these areas and has had some success.

The student should be
familiar with computing and graphing using Excel spreadsheets.

__Critical Dates for this
semester:__

__Approximate Exam Dates:__

Block I, 5/25

Block II, 6/13

Block III, 6/27

Block IV, 7/18/2017 last class

__Attendance __

- Attendance is required.
- Students who do not attend one of the first two
class sessions in the semester WILL be dropped from the class.
- In the event of excessive absence (or tardiness),
and if the instructor has determined that as a result, the students
quality of work has been adversely affected, the instructor may withdraw
the student mid-way through the semester.
- Plus or minus 3% will be credited or deducted,
proportionally, from the students final percentage based on "timely attendance". Zero percent being correlated at an
attendance level of 75%. Arriving
late, or leaving early, will NOT BE considered as "timely
attendance".

Block exams are each weighted
20% of the course. The target exam
dates listed are to be used by the student to pace themselves. Actual dates for exams may vary slightly…
They will be announced in class. All
exams must be taken on the date the exam is given. Missed exams receive 0%

__Laboratory__

Laboratory average is
weighted as 20% of the course grade.
Laboratory assignments will be announced and discussed in advance. Missed labs receive 0%

__Homework__

Selected problems (most from
the end of the chapter) will be assigned.
The student is expected to *attempt*
these problems on a timely basis. **Attempt** is defined as having spent real
time and effort trying to find a solution, and if questioned by the instructor,
the student should be able to discuss the problem and their attempt at solving
it, or why it could not be solved.
(Homework may be collected and applied to the laboratory average.)

The WCC board of trustees,
policy on student conduct (4040), revised

*All forms of
academic dishonesty, including cheating, fabrication, facilitating academic
dishonesty, and plagiarism.*

will be followed. Students are expected to neither give nor receive help on exams. Students observing dishonest behavior are required to report the observation to their instructor.

Discussion among students
concerning laboratory work and homework is encouraged although students are
expected to turn in their own work.

__Students registered with Learning Support Services__

In order to arrange support
accommodations, it is recommended that I be informed by the student __one week prior to the first exam__, that you are registered, require support, and
the specific details of that support.

__Course Grade__

90
to 92% A- 93 to 100% A

80
to 82 B-, 83 to 86 B, 87 to 89 % B+

70
to 72 C-, 73 to 76 C, 77 to 79 % C+

60
to 62 D-, 63 to 66 D, 67 to 69 % D+

Below
60, F

Example: Your exam average is 81%, your laboratory
average is 88%, and your percent attendance is 90%

Your
attendance bonus is: bonus% = (90-75)/100*12 =
1.8%

Your
Course percent is: (0.8 * 81) + (0.2 *
88) = 82.4%

With
the attendance bonus, your course percent is:
82.4% +1.8% = 84%

Your
course grade will be: "B"

**It is the Physical Science
Departments general policy that:**

a)
The grade of
incomplete will be given only when a student is unable, due to catastrophic
circumstances, complete the last exam, AND, when that student has contracted
with the instructor as to the details of how the exam will be completed.

b)
Status change
between credit and audit are not executed by the instructor. The student may elect a status change before
the critical date.

c)
Withdraws’ are
executed by the student within the appropriate time period. They are NOT granted by your instructor.
