__Course description and introduction__

This is an introductory course in Classical (Newtonian) Mechanics. The Physics 2200 sequence is the top-level of the three main introductory sequences. It introduces the basic concepts and theory of mechanics, and you are expected to learn to solve elementary problems by applying these principles. Most students will find this a very demanding course that requires a significant amount of work and study time. For some, this will be the most challenging course you will encounter at the college level. For some disciplines, such as civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering, physics is directly applicable and serves as the introductory course to the more advanced applied physics or engineering classes. For all disciplines for which the 2200 series is required, the problem-solving and quantitative analysis skills you will learn from this course are a critical piece of your broader education.

We will be using the (primarily) on-line
system known as *smartPhysics*. Among other things, smartPhysics
features on-line pre-lectures that you will be required to view prior to each classroom lecture. On-line access
to smartPhysics costs you about $30 for the semester. For more information on smartPhysics, go to the website:
www.smartphysics.com.

__Course registration and meeting schedule__

- To be in this course, you must register for a particular discussion section (numbered 002, 003, 004, 005, 007, 008, 009, or 010), and this automatically registers you for the lecture section (001 or 006).
- The lecture time on Mondays and Wednesdays will be devoted to reviewing the prelecture and checkpoint quizzes scheduled for that day and will focus on establishing a solid grounding in foundational principles.
- The lecture time on Fridays will consist of a short (10-15 minute) quiz followed by some example problems or finishing the units from earlier in the week.
- Discussion sections meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays in various rooms according to the schedule above. Discussion sessions will focus on group problem solving assignments under the guidance of teaching assistants. The three Thursdays before midterm exams will be used to review a practice exam and the three Tuesdays following the midterm exams will be used to review/recap the actual exam.
- There will also be a help lab in the JFB Rotunda with posted hours. Help labs are informal help sessions, typically used for homework assistance

**Schedule of topics, due dates, and exam dates**

**Prelectures and checkpoint quizzes (24):**These are done at the*smartPhysics*website and are due on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10:00 AM (3 hours prior to that days' lecture).**Homework (24):**All homework is done on the*smartPhysics*website and will generally be due**weekly**on Tuesday nights at 11:59 pm, with the exception of some homework assignments at the end of the semester. Since we generally cover two smartPhysics units per week, most Tuesdays will have two homework sets due, but some weeks will only have one homework set and the last week has three.**Group Assignments (22):**These are done on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the discussion sessions. On midterm exam weeks, the Thursday session will not have a group assignment but rather will be used to go over a practice midterm exam. Similarly, on the Tuesday following a midterm exam, the discussion session will be used to review/recap the actual midterm exam.**In-class quizzes (10):**These will be given every Friday during the lecture period, except the first week of class and on midterm exam weeks.**Midterm Exams (3):**Given on the following Wednesdays from 12:55 PM - 2:10 PM (section 001) or 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM (section 006):- Midterm #1: Friday, January 31, 2014
- Midterm #2: Friday, February 28, 2014
- Midterm #3: Friday, April 4, 2014.
**Final exam (1):**Monday April 28, 2014, 3:30 - 5:30 pm. Location to be announced.**Please put this on your calendar now.**As a matter of university policy,**the final exam date and time cannot be changed!**

__Textbook and Other Course Materials__

**Please note:** Many of the other calculus-based physics courses at Utah use the textbook by R.D. Knight, Physics for Scientists and Engineers, 2nd edition (Pearson Addison-Wesley, 2008,
ISBN#: 9780805327366). My course neither requires nor makes use of this text. Be advised that you may still need
to purchase this textbook later for the second semester introductory course, Physics 2220, Introduction to Electricity
and Magnetism, depending on that course's instructor. If you would like to have a supplementary physics textbook
that has a bit more detailed content, worked-out examples, and practice problems, then the Knight text is fine
for this. I can also recommend texts by Serway and Jewett, as well as that by Tipler and Mosca. These latter books can be had inexpensively via the internet, particularly
for earlier editions. Again to emphasize: **none of these textbooks are required for this course.**

I also recommend and will probably make use of the Physics Education Technology Project (PhET) website, http://phet.colorado.edu. This site provides numerous interactive simulations covering all of introductory physics. They can be run directly online or downloaded, and they are absolutely FREE. You are very much encouraged to check these out on your own.

Physics 2210 assumes that you have recently taken one semester of college-level calculus (Math 1210, or equivalent). We will be using some differential and integral calculus throughout the semester. Math 1210 is in fact a prerequesite for Physics 2210.

__Use of the internet: the course website, smartPhysics, and Canvas__

http://www.physics.utah.edu/~jgerton/2210.html,

which is maintained by the instructor and contains all course information, including the syllabus, file downloads, supplementary material, and announcements.

- At the end of this course, the student will be able to apply basic physical principles to solve problems in a quantitative manner. The physical principles introduced in this course happen to be those of Classical (Newtonian) Mechanics and include:
- The basic mathematical
*description*of motion (**kinematics**) for both linear and rotational motion. The student will apply the equations of motion for constant acceleration in one and two dimensions to solve relevant canonical problems. - The basic mathematical description of the
*causes of changes*of motion (**statics and dynamics**) for both linear and rotational motion. The student will be able to draw a correct free-body diagram and use it along with Newton's Laws of motion to solve the relevant canonical problems. - Conservation of Energy and Momentum. The student will be able to identify physical situations to which energy and/or momentum is conserved, and then use the "initial = final" mathematical relationship to solve relevant canonical problems.
- Apply the above principles to universal gravitation, simple harmonic motion, and wave motion to solve relevant canonical problems.
- The student will gain the ability to accurately translate a physical problem formulated in English sentences into a mathematical description, including the use of algebra, trigonometry, vector analysis, and calculus.
- The student will gain the ability to interpret graphically presented information, including quantities defined by the axes, the slope (first derivative), and the curvature (second derivative).
- The student will gain the ability to use collaborative verbal and written communication with a group of peers to solve problems in physics.

**Prelectures and Checkpoint Quizzes:**These are done at the*smartPhysics*website and are generally due on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10:00 AM (3 hours prior to that day's lecture). These are designed to ensure that youthe relevant material for a given lecture period prior to that lecture. They are also your opportunity to provide feedback to the instructor as to what parts of the unit were difficult for you to understand.**confront****Lecture Period (Mondays & Wednesdays):**The lecture period on Mondays and Wednesdays will be focused on addressing the questions and difficulties expressed by students in completing the__Prelectures__and__Checkpoint__quizzes. These lecture periods will be very interactive, wherein the Checkpoint quiz questions plus some additional questions will be used to survey the class. Students will use lettered/color-coded placards to "vote" on an answer to each question. Usually, students will be asked to discuss the question with their neighbors followed by a revote. The goal is to allow students to reach a general consensus with their peers on the correct answer. If there seems to be widespread general difficulty with that day's material, the instructor may also provide a few slides to review.**Lecture Period (Fridays):**On Fridays in the lecture period, the instructor will use the chalkboard to solve a few example problems relevant to that day's unit. The idea is for the instructor to**model good problem-solving technique**, using the 12-step problem solving format. The first 10-15 minutes of most Friday lecture periods are reserved for an in-class quiz and the remaining 35-40 minutes will be used to solve some example problems and/or catch up with any material from the units covered that week.**Group Assignments:**These are done on Tuesdays and Thursdays in discussion sessions (except for the Thursday before and the Tuesday after midterm exams). Students will be organized into groups of 3 or 4. Each group will be given the same one or two problems to solve. Group assignments are an important opportunity in this course to get feedback on the way you answer physics problems on paper before you are asked to do it in the exams and quizzes. The idea of group assignments is also to develop your social and communication skills. As scientists and engineers, you will undoubtedly be asked to work in teams to solve problems. Groups will be organized by the TA and will be changed periodically. While the working in groups, your TA will circulate around the room, listen to the group conversation, and then facilitate the discussion and progress of each group by asking questions, reminding students of principles that are relevant, and helping to steer groups out of "blind alleys." The desired atmosphere is not one of an examination or even a quiz, but one of collaborative learning. The TA will will actively strive to ensure that all groups have gone most of the way toward completing the assignment by the end of the hour. Group assignments and solutions will be posted here as the term progresses.**When handing in group assignments:**- Hand in only one solution per group (assign someone to do the final writing).
- Staple it together (if it takes more than one sheet).
- Write clearly on a cover sheet: the assignment number (i.e., GA1, GA2, etc.) and the names and student IDs of all the people in your group who contributed to the solution and only them. These people must also sign the homework next to their student ID number. By their signatures, the students certify that to the best of their knowledge no one else contributed to the group homework. Only those people whose names, signatures, and ID numbers appear will be given credit. If no names are written, then no one will get any credit.
- Hand in the homework as a group to your discussion TA when you are finished or at the end of the hour.
**Bring your student I.D. to verify your identity.**

**In-class quizzes:**These will be given most Fridays during the first 10-15 minutes of the lecture period and will typically consist of 1 story problem (i.e., you will need to translate/interpret the question into a mathematical expression) and one follow-up multiple-choice problem. Quizzes are lower-stakes opportunities to practice and get feedback on your understanding of physics concepts and your problem solving technique. Please bring a**calculator, writing implement, and your student ID to verify your identity**to each quiz. You are**not**allowed a formula sheet. A standard formula sheet will be provided with each quiz. The quizzes and solutions will be postedhere as the term progresses.**Homework:**The homework that we assign is meant to solidify the physical concepts introduced in the previous week, synthesize it with past material, focus your attention on certain subtleties that might get lost in the prelecture and lecture presentations, and to give you practice at problem solving. It is extremely important to make a serious attempt to work the homework problems. It is only by doing so that you can really get to understand the concepts and how to properly present your solutions.**Past experience demonstrates very clearly that students who use google or some other homework problem compilation perform signicantly weaker in the course than students who reject these study aids,**__even if this second group of students ends up with a lower homework score!__

You will complete all individual homework assignments over the web using*smartPhysics*. In*smartPhysics*, homework assignments will consist of 3-5 multi-part problems that are required. You will encounter problems labeled as "interactive examples" and "standard excercises." The interactive example problems have the option of a "help" button that you can use to guide you through the problem before submitting your answer. In all cases, you can submit answers as many times as you wish. For most of the problem parts, you will be given immediate feedback, and so you may resubmit your answer if it was incorrect. For a few parts in each assignment, you will not get feedback until after the deadline has passed. You may change your answer as many times as you wish, but you will be graded based on your last answer. Some assignments will include a few optional homework problems, which are variations on the required problems in the assignment or are different problems altogether. You should do as many of these as you can for additional review and practice for quizzes and exams. A more complete set of instructions and guidelines for doing homework can be found on the homework page.**Help-lab:**This meets in the JFB Rotunda. TAs and the instructor will be available at posted help-lab hours to offer help with understanding concepts, strategies for problem-solving, and guidance for completing homework.

**Prelectures and Checkpoint Quizzes:**You receive credit for**doing**these assignments,**irrespective of whether you answer correctly.**The purpose is for you to confront the material before the lecture perios and to provide information for the instructor about what the class is having difficulty understanding. If you go out and google the answer without thinking about it, it defeats the purpose. Students receive 3 points for each completed prelecture and 2 points for each checkpoint quiz,*regardless of whether the answer is correct.***Group Assignments:**Each group assignment is worth 4 points and graded on a credit/no-credit basis (no partial credit). Full credit will be given to each member of a group who makes a reasonable contribution toward solving the problem.**In-class Quizzes:**Quizzes are worth 15 points each and are graded on a partial credit basis.**Homework:**Essentially, your homework will be graded by computer, and you will only be entering answers to questions without showing your work. Nonetheless, you will be required to present full solutions (showing all work) to many problems on the in-class quizzes, midterm exams and final exam. Hence, we strongly recommend that you adopt the 12-step problem-solving format to work out clean paper copies of your problem solutions (even though you will not turn these in). Each unit's homework set is worth 5 points in total. Homework is worth 100% of the total points if completed by the first deadline. There is a second deadline for all homework that is exactly one week after the first deadline. (The exception is Homework 24, for which the second deadline is 5 days after the first deadline.) Homework completed by the second deadline can still earn 70% credit; that is, the maximum score is 3.5 out of 5. There is no other provision for accepting homework beyond the second deadline date, no exceptions.**Midterm and Final Exams:**For detailed rules please refer to the exam procedures page. There are 3 midterm exams (130 points each) and a comprehensive final exam (200 points).**You must take the final exam and score at least 25% (50 points) to pass this course.**For midterms, you may bring**one**8 1/2" x 11" sheet for formulas and other important information (you may use both sides).**No other written material is allowed.**The process of making a formula sheet is a good study tool and it might help save you time during the exams. Normal scientific and graphing calculators are allowed during exams. We do not allow laptop PCs , iPads (and the like), cell phones, or other devices with significant text (alphanumeric) storage capability, or those with wireless communication capabilities. If there is any doubt, the intructor's or TA's decision as to allowability is final, so please do not push the boundaries of these rules. The Final Exam is essentially comprehensive, with some extra emphasis on the last six units of material not covered on the last midterm exam.**Regrades on exams:**Any dispute over the grading of a midterm exam must be brought to the attention of the instructor (not a TA). You must fill out a >regrading form and attach it to the entire problem (not just one part) to be regraded. (Do NOT resubmit problems that you are not asking to be regraded.) You must use a separate regrading form for each problem. These sheets must be given directly to the instructor within the two weeks after the exam was taken, either in person or by leaving them in his mailbox or the wall pocket outside the instructor's office door. Problems will NOT be regraded after the two week deadline. Exams MUST be done in black or blue pen (NOT red), in order to get a regrade. No exam completed in pencil will be regraded. When you submit a regrade for a problem, the entire problem will be regraded, not just the parts that you are disputing. It is**usually**the case that you will not lose points by submitting a regrade, but this is not guaranteed. Submitted regrades will be evaluated and returned within two weeks of the regrade submission deadline for that exam.You are allowed to ask for regrades on the final exam. This will be considered only in the case where you are near a grade boundary, and there are some additional special rules.

**The request must be made by 5pm on Friday May 2nd, 2014.**You must turn in regrade forms for each problem, just as with the midterms. However, you must turn in the entire final exam for regrade, and the instructor will regrade the**entire exam**(not only the problems you submit for regrade).

__Determination of the Course Grade__

Assessment category |

Points for each |
Total points for category |

Prelectures | 24 | 3 | 72 |

Checkpoints | 24 | 2 | 48 |

Homework | 24 | 5 | 120 |

Group Assignments | 22 | 4 | 88 |

Quizzes | 9 | 15 | 135 |

Final Exam | 1 | 200 | 200 |

Bonus Assignments | 3 | 10 | 30 |

Total |
1083 |

**Quizzes:** There will be 10 quizzes throughout the course of the semester, but your lowest score will be dropped before computing your total score (see table above).

**Final Exam Improvement Rule:** If your final exam score (on a percentage basis) is greater than one of
your midterm exam scores, the final exam score **replaces **(on a percentage basis) the lowest midterm exam
score. That is, you will get your final exam score on both your final exam AND your worst midterm (scaled by 130/200).

**Bonus Assignments:** We will not cover the last two smartPhysics units (25: Static Fluids & 26: Moving Fluids), but the Prelectures, Checkpoint quizzes, and Homework for these two units will be avaiable for you to complete as "extra credit" (worth 20 points total). In addition, near the end of the semester, you will have the opportunity to complete an online course survey to help the instructor improve the course for future semesters. If you complete this survey, you will receive an additional 10 points of extra credit.

**Built-in Point Buffer: **Note that the course is graded out of a total of 1000 points, but there are 1083
potential points to be awarded; an 8.3% (83 point) buffer is built in as extra credit. Other than your lowest quiz score, no other assignments will be dropped when determining your final score. In addition, there is **no other extra credit or make-up assignments **(other than the bonus assignments): Please
don't even ask. There will be make-up midterm exams only for approved reasons (see make up policy).
All other missed assignments apply to your 83-point buffer and cannot be made up. These rules are stringent because
of the requirements and limitations of such a large course.

**Canvas is the official gradebook:** It is the student's responsibility to ensure the accuracy of all homework
and exam grades (which will reflect what is in our database). These are all accessible from Canvas. Please
check your scores regularly, keep all your returned quizzes and exams (handed out during discussion sessions),
and contact your discussion TA in case of an error. **Please note: **Friday May 2nd at 5 pm MST is the
deadline for any and all notification to be made regarding recording errors, clerical errors, or arithmetic errors
on any midterms or homework. **Unless you point out any scoring or recording error by this date, the scores as
recorded will stand.**

Your final grade will be assigned according to the total number of points you earn
and the table below:

Course Grade |
Point Range |

A | 950 points and above |

A- | 900 - 949.99 |

B+ | 860 - 899.99 |

B | 820 - 859.99 |

B- | 780 - 819.99 |

C+ | 740 - 779.99 |

C | 700 - 739.99 |

C- | 660 - 699.99 |

D | 540 - 659.99 |

E | below 540 |

__Policy on scheduling accommodations (make-up exams, etc.)__

**There will be no make-up opportunities for any other work in the course **(in-class quizzes, group assignments,
homework, prelectures, and checkpoint quizzes). There are many assignments in each of these categories and it is
too difficult to arrange for make-up work. Consider that there is a 8.3% buffer of extra credit in the total number
of points; no one assignment is worth very much.

The Supplemental Instruction Program, called SI for short, is offered in this course to provide organized study sessions. These sessions are free and open to all students in the course and are led by an undergraduate who has done well in this subject area. Your SI leader will be attending classes, reading the material, and doing any relevant assignments to be prepared for the SI sessions. The purpose of SI is to see that each of you has the opportunity to do as well as you would like to in this course. **In SI sessions, we will review, organize, and clarify the material from lectures; teach you ways to develop effective study skills for this course; and help you prepare for exams**. Your SI leader will schedule 3 meetings per week convenient to the majority of your schedules. Attendance is voluntary, and you may attend as many or as few sessions as you like.

At the end of the semester, please complete the **post-survey** accessed at www.studentvoice.com/utah/si.html to provide us with feedback on your experience with SI. Your comments are valued and important to our ability to provide you with effective SI sessions that meet your needs. Let us know what worked well and what you would change!

Be sure to schedule enough study time. Typically, one should expect to spend no less than 2-3 hours on prelectures, homework and review for every hour spent in lecture. There are three vital activities in which you must engage to have a chance at succeeding in this course:

**Take the online prelectures seriously and make an honest effort.**You will get some points for doing this and for doing the CheckPoint quizzes, but it is vital for you to use this opportunity to learn as much as you can about a particular topic**before lecture**, and to provide**feedback**to me as your instructor, so that we can make the best possible use of our lecture time together. The last on-line CheckPoint question is optional and is called "Lecture Thoughts." This is your opportunity to provide direct feedback to me that**I will see prior to lecture.**This will help me to tailor the lecture to**your needs**.**Participate in lecture.**This course will not have a traditional lecture where the instructor "holds forth" for 50 minutes! This is the essential idea of interactive learning. Studies show that most students learn better and retain more from an active lecture in which they participate with the instructor and their peers in solving problems with inquiry-based techniques (e.g., surveying and voting).**Practice, practice, practice!**The only way to understand physics concepts well enough to use them is to practice on problems. Physics is similar to music and sports in this regard. You can't learn to play the piano by watching someone or by having someone tell you how. You have to practice. Do the assigned homework problems in*smartPhysics*, do the suggested additional problems before exams, and try practice exam problems provided by the instructor. Practice problems by mimicking the exam situation: start with a blank sheet of paper and work the problem through as far as possible without looking for help from the text, notes, or solutions until absolutely necessary.

**Honesty and Respect:** Cheating of any kind on an exam is a very serious violation of University rules
and is unethical. Students caught cheating will receive a failing grade for the course and will be sent on to the
University Disciplinary Committee for further action. All teaching assistants, including the course marshall, and
the administrative assistant for the course are to be considered proxies for the instructor when you are dealing
with them with respect to this course. They are to be listened to and treated with respect at all times.

*Possession or access to solutions for any course element (e.g., textbook exercises, homework problems, exam questions, etc.) constitutes cheating and will be treated as such! More importantly, it inhibits your ability to learn and is unfair to your classmates.*

You can meet with Prof. Gerton by appointment. These may be granted very promptly (i.e. you might e-mail and be told to come on over), but immediate meetings cannot be guaranteed. I will be present at the >help lab at least two hours per week. Please respect the fact that I do not like to be bothered between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM on lecture days; I use this time to review your responses to pre-lectures and checkpoint quizzes, and for last-minute prep and relaxation before lecture. I will also reserve the right to adjust or cancel office hours on days when I will be traveling out of town or have other engagements, which I will announce as they occur.

The TAs and the instructor will also be available during the help-lab hours. This is an important resource for students which is often under-utilized. If you have questions that you have not been able to get answered in the discussion sections or during the lectures be sure to attend the help lab.

All students and faculty need to be aware of provisions in the Student Code relevant to this course. Students have 20 business days to appeal grades and other "academic actions" (e.g., results of comprehensive exams). The date that grades are posted on the web is considered the date of notification. A "business day" is every day the University is open for business, excluding weekends and University-recognized holidays. If the student cannot get a response from the faculty member after ten days of reasonable efforts to contact him or her, the student may appeal to the department chair if done within 40 days of being notified of the academic action. Students should definitely document their efforts to contact a faculty member.

Similarly, faculty members who discover or receive a complaint of academic misconduct (e.g., cheating, plagiarism) have 20 business days to "make reasonable efforts" to contact the student and discuss the alleged misconduct. Within 10 more business days the faculty member must give the student written notice of the sanction, if any, and the student's right to appeal to the Academic Appeals Committee of the College of Science.

All students and faculty members are urged to consult the exact text of the Student Code if a relevant situation arises. The code is on the University web site at http://www.admin.utah.edu/ppmanual/8/8-10.html.

The University of Utah Department of Physics seeks to provide equal access to its programs, services and activities for people with disabilities. If you will need accommodations in this course, reasonable prior notice needs to be given to the Center for Disability Services, 162 Olpin Union Bldg, 581-5020 (V/TDD) to make arrangements for accommodations. CDS will work with your and the instructor to make arrangements for accommodations. All information in this course can be made available in alternative format wiht prior notification to the Center for Disability Services. You are encouraged (but not required) to come and talk to the instructor about your disability and necessary accommodations within the first two weeks of the semester.
