PHY 213 Sections 401 402 403 Spring 2007 Ranger Page 1UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKYDEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS AND ASTRONOMYPHYSICS 213 Sections 401,402,403 RangerCOURSE SYLLABUSSPRING 20071. PURPOSE: You are about to tread where few in our society dare, the realm of Science andTechnology at a fundamental level. Your future clearly demands expanded levels ofunderstanding in these areas to successfully deal with the complex issues on the horizon. Acceptthis challenge aggressively!! Become a Physics Ranger. ( or Continue your training)Physics 213 is designed to provide the student with a comprehensive introduction toelectricity, magnetism, photonics (light), quantum theory, nuclear physics and special relativity ina non calculus framework. 2. OBJECTIVES: a. Each student will develop a conceptual understanding of the rudimentary principles ofelectricity, magnetism, (light) and modern physics.b. Each student will develop and exercise a flexible, logical problem solvingmethodology applicable not only to this course but to their greater academic and day to daychallenges.3. SCOPE: This course builds on the classical concepts developed in PHY211. Vectors, Force,Fields and Conservation of Energy. It begins with a survey of basic laws of electricity andthen analyses some basic electrical devices. It continues with magnetism and explores severalelectro-magnetic devices. Electro-magnetic phenomena “light” is investigated using principlesfrom both sides of the wave-particle duality. The last phase of the course introduces modernphysics including some special relativity, quantum mechanics and general topics in nuclearphysics. 4. MISSION: The instructional team for PHY 213 will ensure that every student is given ampleopportunity to master the course goals and achieve their full potential, while looking for ways toimprove the course pedagogy to better meet the needs of all students both present and future.PHY 213 Sections 401 402 403 Spring 2007 Ranger Page 225. EXECUTION:a. The instructional team is composed of the following members each with a specifiedrole:(1) Lecturer: (CP 153)- Present lectures that compliment the book and reinforce learning objects.- Ensure that all components of the course are coordinated and sequenced according to this syllabus.- Provide help sessions and additional instruction as requested.( problemswill not normally be worked in lecture)- Ensure testing and subsequent grading is equitable and consistent with other sections and university policy. (2) Recitation Instructor: (TBD)-Present recitation sessions focused on student needs while reinforcing key concepts from assignments and lecture.- Prepare and grade exams quizzes and homework.- Provide help sessions and additional instruction both scheduled (officehours) and by appointment.(3) Laboratory Instructor: (CP 167)- Prepare Laboratory lessons in accordance with the Lab Syllabus (published separately, see web site)- Emphasize connectivity between the Lab and the Lecture and study assignments.- Grade all Lab reports.- Assist in the preparation of exams to ensure continuity with Lab course material and objectives. (4) Students:- Study assigned sections prior to lecture.- Work assigned problems and questions prior to recitation.- Develop and Maintain a student reference sheet used for each gradedevent. One side of an 8.5"x11" paper for each hour test and both sides ofone sheet for the final. - Seek additional help early. Use Lecturer and TA’s Office hours or make appointments. Use “On Duty” Grad Students in the Department of Physicsand Astronomy Resource Room (CP 148). -Test yourself before the test- “Don’t Forget Nothin” ( MAJ Robert Rogers, Standing orders to hisPHY 213 Sections 401 402 403 Spring 2007 Ranger Page 33Rangers, 1759).- Increase your personal velocity to meet the demands of the course.b. Other Assistance and Study Aids:(1) Study Groups. Highly recommended. You get out what you put in.University rules on plagiarism apply.(2) Computer Software. See Web Page links.(3) Private Tutors. Ask at the Physics office. Plan ahead; they are booked early. 6. ADMINISTRATION:a. Course Text: College Physics, by Serway and Faughn, 7th edition.b. Lab Text, Laboratory Manual for General Physics, Part 2, by Ellis. Available at “JohnyPrint ”c. The TI-83/84 Calculator is required for all PHY213 students (84 plus Silver is highlyrecommended ) The Turning Technologies RF transmitter is also required. d.
