| THE BOOK (Vol. I)
version of Calculus-Based Physics Volume I :
need to have the symbols fonts below for the smaller pdf file (the text
version) to display and print properly. What you see on each
of the larger file, with "image" in its name, is an image of the
corresponding page of the text version. You don't need the
symbols fonts for that one but there may be a little bit of distortion
of the letters on your monitor depending on your magnification.
Also, you can't use the search feature to search for a word
expression in it. It does print perfectly.

Click on the file name to download
the book to your computer as a compressed MS Word file. Once you have
it on your computer, unzip it. Then you can edit it using MS Word. (See
also the Symbols Fonts below.)
writing Calculus-Based Physics, I used a couple of partial
that I created using the High Logic Font Creator. Each font includes a
few symbols that I either couldn't find or whose representations I
found unacceptable in the fonts I had. To install a font in
Windows: Download it, right click on the file name, and select install.
Another option is to simple copy it to the c:\windows\Fonts
version of cover page and
provide this in case you choose to print a copy of the book and put it
in one of those 3-ring binders with the clear plastic covering into
which you can slip the cover page and spine text.

The pdf version of the 1st semester formula sheet
can be viewed directly. See the description
of THE BOOK above to find out about the "image" version. The doc.zip file unzips to a
one-page MS WordTM document. Create an
empty directory and unzip the htm.zip file into it. It consists of 280
small files each of which is either an htm file or a gif file. One of
these is index.htm. The file index.htm
is an html version of an older version of the formula sheet in which
each entry is a link to an explanation of the entry.

to the download page for the mathematics
handouts and other mathematics resources that I use in the
Calculus-Based Physics course that teach at Saint Anselm College.
version of the 1st semester SAC Physics Problems. There is a
set of physics problems for each chapter in the book. The numbering
scheme for the problems does not conform to the chapter numbers. The
current plan is not to change the problem numbers. So, if, for
instance, you create a nice solution to SAC114 problem 2, it will
always be the solution to SAC114 problem 2, even in later versions of
the SAC Physics Problems. Refer to the Fall 2004 syllabus below to see
which problems correspond to which chapters. See the
description of THE BOOK above to find out about the "image" version.

to solutions of the 1st semester SAC Physics Problems. The
solutions come in a variety of forms: gif files, QuickTime movies, wmv
files, and ScreenCam and WinCamTM movie
executables. The link at left takes you to a page with a few sample
files and a bunch of zip files. The file types are described on that
semester Class Questions: I use a combination of these
questions (provided here in pdf and as a zipped set of Microsoft
PowerPointTM slides) and Dr. Eric Mazur's
Concept Tests (see Off-Site Resources ) for
almost all the classroom sessions I hold with my students. The students
read the chapter in advance of the classroom session and, instead of
listening to me lecture on concepts they read about, the students
practice applying the concepts in class. Students indicate their
responses by means of colored indexed cards, or by means of the
"clickers" of the Beyond QuestionTM classroom
semester On-Line Quizzes Blackboard Export file. This is a
zip file created by Blackboard using the course export tool. This will
be of use to you if you are using Blackboard 6.0 or later. If so, just
download this zip file to your computer and bring it into your
Blackboard course using the Blackboard Import Package utility (when
Blackboard asks you to choose, select "Tests, Pools, and Surveys").
There is a quiz for every lecture/chapter. The value of the quizzes
lies in the feedback portion of each.
version of the 1st-semester On-Line Quizzes and the Answers
with Feedback to a quiz-taker who simply selected the first
possible answer to every question. The quizzes will be more useful to
you if you have Blackboard 6.0 or later but at least you can see what
they look like here.
version of old 1st semester syllabus, grading information,
and laboratory policies. The syllabus comes in handy for establishing
the SAC physics problem to lecture correspondence.
