First assignment: Fill out and submit this
information form. This will be included as a homework grade.
- Three open-source e-books are the textbooks for this course. They was developed by
various educators and scientists. Please
download the books in pdf format and save them to your computer or tablet.
Primary Textbook: Light and Matter
Secondary Textbooks #1: Peoples Physics Book-Basic
Secondary Textbooks #2: Peoples Physics Book-v3-videos
These are also available on the computers you will use at Lezha Academic Center. They will be inside a folder on the desktop labeled "PHYS_11."
- A pdf reader will be needed to read the books in pdf
format. The standard program is Adobe Acrobat Reader, and it is a FREE global program! You do not have to download Chrome web browser unless you want to do so.
- A notebook in which to write notes from class is an
important item to bring to class each day.
- Also, a scientific calculator will be needed in class for working problems, when
taking quizzes or exams, and for homework. Dr. Bowman or Mr.
Beachy can point
you to places to purchase such a calculator at a reasonable price.
complete syllabus is available listing all objectives and
