# Physics 1B

This is an introductory course in which lectures serve to emphasize and explain key concepts as well as build problem solving capabilities. Demonstrations are an important part of the lectures. The textbook for the class is Serway and Faughn, College Physics, 7th Edition, Vol. 1, Thomson/Brooks/Cole.

## Overview for Winter 2007 - revised 25 Jan (PDF)

We meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 10 weeks (minus two UC holidays). This comprises 23 one-hour lectures and 5 quizzes (on alternate Mondays). Weekly exercises from the course textbook are assigned and reviewed during biweekly problem sessions. The importance of working the assigned homework exercises cannot be overemphasized!
