PHY 122 Course Page - Spring 2015

Welcome to Physics 122, the second half of the physics for life sciences course! On the left hand side of this page you can find links to the key pages you will need for the course.

NOTE! You receive the SAME GRADE for Phy122 and Phy 124 (Lab)

Download Phy 121: Ch3, Ch4, Ch5, Ch6 , Ch12 , Phy122: Calculus, Ch15, Ch16, Ch17, Ch18, Ch19, Ch20, Ch21, Ch22, Ch23, ch24, ch25, Ch26, Ch27 of lecture videos here.

You need to get the following required material:
1. Lecture Notes and Accompanying Lectures Videos. Download from here. You are expected to watch the material for a given period before coming to the workshop. You can watch it by clicking the “play” button in the upper right corner of the PDF file.
2. A clicker to answer questions in the workshops as for Phy121. Purchased in the campus bookstore. Instructions for registering your clicker in Blackboard can be found here
3. An online homework license (cost 110 dollars with etext), available at by clicking on the Register button. You may use the same license as you used for Phy121 last term. The course id is MPHOBBS32493, and when you register for the course you must use your SBU ID. If you do not use your SBU ID, you will not get HW credit (Note, if you buy the text book (see below) then you automatically get a license when you purchase the text book, but you still have to register online using the license key that came with the text book.)

Firsts for this Semester: (see the Course Calendar TBD)

Most of the policies and procedures this semester will be the same as last semester's Physics 121, however you should still read the course syllabus carefully at the beginning of the semester.

Pay careful attention to the dates of the exams for the course: Two Midterm exams are scheduled 8:45-10:15 PM on Wed. Feb. 22 and Thurs. Mar. 28. The final exam is Thurs. May 11, 2:15-5:00 PM. You have to make sure there are no conflicts in your schedule – we cannot grant a makeup exam for any foreseeable circumstances. The registrar's policy that students have responsibility for avoiding exam conflicts is crystal clear, and exceptions will not be granted in this course. If you cannot take a midterm due to exceptional circumstances (documented illness or death in the immediate family), discuss with the instructor as soon as possible. We will increase the weights of the other parts of the course accordingly. If you miss the final with a valid excuse, you will receive an Incomplete in the course and a makeup final will be scheduled as promptly as possible after the end of the semester. The exams will be multiple choice, graded via scan-tron sheets (fill in the bubble with a #2 pencil).

“Lecture” time is used for a workshop. Topics are reviewed and you answer questions using a “clicker” for credit. You are expected to view the lecture videos (with embedded Flash movies) before you come to the workshop.
