Hello - Welcome to PHYS2211/2212. I really like teaching this class and I hope that you will enjoy taking it.

I have always been interested in Physics because I have always been curious about how the things worked. Physics answers those questions. My interests: climbing, motorcycling, skiing/snowboarding, and professional audio all involve visceral physics - the challenges are often in the form of physics problems that you solve with your mind and body. If you are interested in my adventures in visceral physics (humiliations galore) check out motorcyclejazz.com, music, or my Facebook.

As an applied physicist I have been able to  participate in many of the activities I enjoy at a professional level. Experience in acoustics and audio engineering formed the basis of a long career in professional audio.  I hold an expert motorcycle roadracing license and work as a test rider/feature writer for a motorcycle.com and motorcyclejazz.com. I am or have been a contributor to several motorcycle, music industry, climbing and ski industry publications (links to some of my work are listed below).

My greatest desire (ok - not my greatest desire, but close) is that you come share the view that physics as fun and worthwhile. Physics is not a particularly difficult subject if you can master a few basic principles. It's front loaded though, so maximum effort in the beginning yields big dividends later.

Please do not hesitate to ask me physics questions that are related to things that you are interested in. This course it will be a great  success if you develop a better understanding about things that you enjoy as a result of having been here.

Important course information: Five things to do before the first day of class.
1
Examine the PHYS2211/2212 Syllabus
2



a) Acquire a textbook and online resources. The textbooks for this course are (choose either) Physics for Sci & Eng w/Mod Physics (Set:V1/V2) W/Mastering Physics Access card Edition: 4th, University Physics OR Bauer/Westfall,University Physis 2st Ed. The first is available as in hard copy or as an e-book online through the ISU bookstore. The second is available through the Connect website (see below). It does not matter to me which you choose. I've used both of them and they are fine. The online systems are a lot different and I suggest that you look through each before choosing.
b) Set yourself up with either a Mastering Physics account at masteringphysics.com (MPHACKWORTH96787 for section 01 or MPHACKWORTH07376 for section 02) OR a McGraw-Hill Connect account: section 01, section 02.
I highly recommend the e-book version of either book which will be far less expensive than a hard copy and customizable.
