Magic Grade Calculator. Use this spreadsheet to track your progress
and estimate your grade in the course.
Reminder: The Final Exam (2hrs) is 6:00 PM Tuesday Nov 13th in Room GOS-1250.
Here's a copy of the formula sheet
you'll be given during the tests and the Final, if you'd like to look it over ahead of time.
It includes a table of moments of inertia.
Do not bring your own, it will be included with the tests.
REVIEW OF PHYS 311:
Much of what we do in Phys II builds upon concepts developed in Phys I.
If you need a quick review of something, try the
notes for 369. (Also available from my main homepage).
SUMMARIES AND WORKSHEETS:
We'll be using the Activities Manual for Phys 312 and 389, but
I'll be introducing some extra sheets for Phys 389, so I'll keep a running

COURSE LECTURE NOTES:
I've written out a full set of lecture notes for this course as
a possible study aid and summary of the text. Sometimes seeing things
a little differently helps. It also emphasizes the main points and fills in a few blanks in the text.
Just another service I provide.
