version of cover page and spine text. I provide each of my
students with a hard copy of the book in a 3-ring loose-leaf view
binder with the cover and spine text posted here.

Formula Sheet The pdf version of the 2nd semester formula
sheet can be viewed directly. The doc.zip file unzips to a one-page
MS WordTM document. (See also Symbols
Fonts under 1st Semester Downloads.) (There is no html version of the
2nd semester formula sheet.)
version of 2nd 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. In preparing for the final, students are
advised to play "What Kind of Problem is This?" using the
sacIIprobsIn-RandomOrder.pdf file that is also provided here.
Word version of 2nd semester SAC Physics Problems. This file
contains a single document. (See also the Symbols Fonts under 1st
|Solutions to SAC Physics Problems
to solutions of the 2nd semester SAC Physics Problems. The
solutions come in a variety of forms: gif files, QuickTimeTM
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
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 BlackboardTM Export file.
This is a zip file created by BlackboardTM using
the course export tool. This will be of use to you if you are using
BlackboardTM 6.0 or later. If so, just download
this zip file to your computer and bring it into your BlackboardTM
course using the BlackboardTM Import Package
utility (when BlackboardTM 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
version of the 2nd-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 BlackboardTM 6.0 or later but at
least you can see what they look like here.
version of old 2nd semester syllabus, grading information and
laboratory policies. The syllabus comes in handy for establishing the
SAC physics problem to lecture correspondence.
