Prerequisite:


MAT 161


This course uses algebra
-

and trigonometry
-
based mathematical models to
introduce the fundamental concepts that describe the physical world.


Topics
include units a
nd measurement, vectors, linear kinematics and dynamics, energy,
power, momentum, fluid mechanics, and heat. Upon completion, students should
be able to demonstrate an understanding of the principles involved and display
analytical problem
-
solving ability
for the topics covered.

REQUIRED TEXT/MATERIALS

Based College Physics, 5th Issue

ISBN 9789970074433

(1) Lab/Class Ass
ignments, 96 pages

(2) Lecture Materials, 178 pages plus 11 unnumbered pages at end

The complete packet is available at the AB Tech bookstore for about $5

first 4 pages
(approximate
ly)
(printed copy optional)

http://dwmerrill.com/abtech/precision151.htm




Calculator: A $10
-
$12 scientific calculator is all you need. You do NOT need a
$100

graphing calculator. You
will use the following keys:

EE (positive and negative powers of ten)

sin, cos, tan and inverse tan (trigonometry)

log and its inverse
10
x

() parentheses for grouping

mode or DRG, to switch between degrees and radians.

You must know how to operate your cal
culator without the instructor’s
assistance.





Use of AB Tech printers is limited.


Do not use AB Tech printers to print the
documents listed above.




Textbooks (optional): see “Optional Reading”, below.

THREE QUOTES

“Eighty percent of su
ccess is showing up.”



Woody Allen, actor

“Never mistake activity for achievement.”



John Wooden, UCLA Basketball Coach

“RTFD.”



see the
Urban Dictionary
.

Memorize these quotes.


They
are more important than anything else you will learn in
this course.

OPTIONAL READING


Physics 151 covers Mechanics, Heat, and Sound.


Physics 152 covers Electricity and Magnetism,
and Optics.


The Physics 151/2 textbooks are concise, straightforward and n
ot expensive.

They
focus on definitions and problem solving.


The Schaum Outline book is more advanced.


We will
not use it.


For extra background and (enjoyable!) optional reading, I recommend the Physics 110
(Conceptual Physics) text
Physics Matters
, by James Trefil and Robert M. Hazen.


That book
includes also: Atomic and Nuclear Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Relativity and Cosmology. As of
May 2012, used copies are available as low as $9.99 from Amazon.com.

STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

General Education Core Requirement in Natural Science/Mathematics.

Course Goal:

Upon compl eti on the student shoul d be abl e to demonstrate an understandi ng of the topi cs covered:
moti on, forces, energy, heat, el ectri ci ty, magneti sm, and the structure of ma
tter and the uni verse.

Course
-
Specific Objectives (Intended Outcomes):

To be able to answer concept questions in the subjects of translational motion, rotational
motion, fluids, heat, and sound. To be able to solve word problems at the
algebra/trigonometry

level in the subjects of translational motion, rotational motion, fluids,
heat, and sound. To be able to take, record, and analyze data using significant figures,
precision, accuracy, and units.


Reinforcement Experiences for General Education Cross
-
Curri
culum Competencies:

Upon successful completion of the general education requirements, the student will have
mastered the following cross
-
curriculum competencies:

(1) Demonstrate effective speaking, writing, reading and listening skills.

(2) Demonstrate
proficiency in analyzing problems and making logical decisions through
locating, evaluating, and using information.

(3) Demonstrate proficiency with math skills and/or natural science knowledge by organizing
and analyzing information to come to logical con
clusions.

(4) Demonstrate basic competency in computer technology.

(5) Demonstrate knowledge of cultural diversity.


The fi rst three general educati on competenci es wi l l be practi ced i n thi s Physi cs course.

STUDENT HELP


ATTENDANCE POLICY

“To receive course credit, a student should attend a minimum of 85% of the contact
hours of the class.



In Summer 2012 you must attend at least


17 of the 20 sessions.


Upon accumulating absences exceeding 15% of the course contact hours, the student
may be dropped from the class unless the student follows the official withdrawal
procedure before the withd
rawal deadline for the class.”

In addition, you must attend at least one session in the first 10%, or you will be
automatically dropped.


In Summer 2012
you must attend at least one of the first two
sessions.

I consider attendance and punctuality to be
extremely important, for reasons of
courtesy as well as performance.


All absences are counted, including emergencies.


No
excuses or explanations are required.


I strictly enforce the 85% AB Tech attendance
policy.

After a 5
-
minute grace period, a tardy i
s recorded.


An absence is recorded if half the
class is missed.


An early departure without permission is a tardy.


Three tardies equal
one absence.


In Summer 2013 each session is 3.5 hours, from 5:00pm until 8:30pm.

B

= 80
-
89

C

= 70
-
79

D

= 60
-
69

F

= Below 60

I round 89.5 or higher up to an A; 79.5 or higher to B; 69.5 or higher to C; and 59.5 o
r
higher to D.

Tests (5 @ 10% each):




50%

Labs, Class Activities and Quizzes:






20%

Homework:






10%

Final Exam:







20%

Total:








100%

The lowest of the five tests will be replaced by the Final Exam grade, if the Final
Exam grade is higher.

The lowest 15% of the Labs, Class Activities and Quizzes will be
dropped from the
Lab average.

HOMEWORK


Unless otherwise specified, the homework assignment for a chapter is all the Questions,
plus the even
-
numbered Problems.


You must show your work on the Problems (since
the answers are given to you).

HOMEWORK


The
Practice Tests are graded as Quizzes, which are combined with Labs in your grade.
Like the Tests, the Practice Tests include Questions and Problems.


You must show your
work on the Problems (since the answers are given to you).

ASSIGNMENTS





see Moodle for details

MAKE
-
UP POLICIES




Cancelled classes: All classes canceled for weather or other reasons will be made
up.


Any assignments due on a missed class day are automatically due on the next
class day.


An
y test scheduled for a missed class day is automatically rescheduled for
the next class day.


To replace the missed class day, there will be an extra
assignment, which will be announced in class and by email and online.


In case of
disagreement, the class
announcement takes precedence.




Absences:

You may make up a missed test provided your homework grade and
your attendance are both above 85% as of the test date.


You will retake the test in
116 Ferguson.


The test must be completed no later than t
he class which is one
week after the original test date.


There will be no retaking of tests.




Late homework receives half credit.


If you are absent, the overdue
assignment(s) may be turned in for full credit on the day you return to class.


Homew
ork must be received on paper in class.




Missed quizzes and labs, including in
-
class activities, may not be made up.
