THE BOOK (Vol. II)
pdf version of Calculus-Based Physics II.
You need Acrobat Reader to read this file. If you
have a high-speed connection you should feel free to left
click on the file name to view the book. You can save it
to your computer from within Acrobat Reader. If you have
a low-speed internet connection, you might prefer to
right click on the pdf filename and select "Save
Link As..." to download the file to your computer
where you can view it with Acrobat Reader at your
MS Word version of Calculus-Based Physics II.
Click on the file name to download
the book to your computer as a
compressed MS Word file. Once you have it on your
computer, unzip it. Then you can edit it using MS Word 98
or later. (See also the Symbols Fonts under 1st Semester Downloads.)
|pdf 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.

|Physics 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.

(There is no html version of the
2nd semester formula sheet.)
|pdf 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.
| MS Word version of
2nd semester SAC Physics Problems. This file contains a single document.
(See also the Symbols Fonts under 1st Semester Downloads.)
|Solutions to SAC Physics Problems
|Link 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 that page.
|2nd 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 response system.
|2nd 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 of each.
|pdf 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.
|pdf 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.
