 **Most of the course administration will be done via Blackboard.** ​ Please make sure that you have access to your Stony Brook Blackboard account, that this course is listed therein (by the week before classes start), and that the email address listed in your Blackboard account is one that you monitor. ​ You have to register your "​clicker"​ via Blackboard; see below. **Most of the course administration will be done via Blackboard.** ​ Please make sure that you have access to your Stony Brook Blackboard account, that this course is listed therein (by the week before classes start), and that the email address listed in your Blackboard account is one that you monitor. ​ You have to register your "​clicker"​ via Blackboard; see below.

-===== Format of course ===== 
- 
-This course differs from the usual format!! ​ 
- 
-Class meeting time is used for workshops with clicker quizzes in class for credit (10% of grade). You should come to the workshop prepared because you have viewed the recorded lecture and worked on (maybe not yet finished) the homework assignment. ​ The workshop will be used to review material, and for quizzes based on eInstruction response pads ("​clickers",​ although they don't actually click). 
- 
-The lectures you should watch before coming to workshop are recorded flash movies. Lectures for the first week covering Chapter 15 (Electric Charge and Force) are posted publicly [[http:///​www.sinc.sunysb.edu/​Class/​phy122/​CD/​ch15.zip|here]],​ so nobody should be concerned that they will fall behind because they have not been able to purchase the recorded lectures. The Lecture Notes and Videos for the whole course can be downloaded from www.edusofd.com. A serial number can be purchased for $40.00 there in order to activate the software on your PC or MAC. (The site is not yet accepting payments.) ​ The method of license distribution will be slightly different (more flexible to use license on multiple computers) this time, and edusofd will not make printed notes available free of charge any more. 
- 
-You need to have Adobe Reader 9.0 or higher in order to view these files. ​ That is available free of charge at [[http://​get.adobe.com/​reader/​|here]]. 
- 
-Homework problems will be assigned using an online system called Mastering Physics (www.masteringphysics.com). ​ There will be twelve problems assigned for each chapter, due at 8:00 AM on the day when the next chapter starts (e.g., February 3 for Chapter 15).  However, you should attempt the problems BEFORE each workshop, so that you can get the maximum benefit from class participation. ​ Your Mastering Physics key from last semester will continue to work this semester - you do not have to purchase a new one. 
- 
-The recommended text is (still) College Physics, by Knight, Jones, and Field (1st edition). ​ There are several copies on reserve in the Math-Physics Library, and one in the Help Room (A-131). ​ The homework problems are taken from that book, and you will probably find it very helpful to look at it if you are stuck on a problem.
