An additional reference for this unit is "Fundamentals of Physics" by Halliday, Resnick, & Walker, Extended 10th edition. This is the textbook for PHYS140 and PHYS143. Print versions are available from the Co-Op bookshop and digital options are available through http://au.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-EHEP002531.html .
Audio recordings and copies of slides from lectures will be available in iLearn through the Echo360 system. Because we do demonstrations and problem solving in our physics lectures, we recommend that you attend the lectures. The online resources are good for review and revision.
The use of calculators during tutorials, when completing quizzes, in the in-session exam and in the final examination for this unit is usually necessary. In accordance with the Faculty policy, calculators with a full alphabet on the keyboard are not allowed in the quizzes, in-session exam or the final examination.
Lectures and Tutorials
This unit consists of two different formal types of activity:
1. Lectures, in which new material is presented, discussed and illustrated by examples and demonstrations. Attending lectures is an important part of studying physics since it allows you to gain an insight into the subject matter. The lecturers can explain the concepts from several points of view, can point out and explain the most important aspects of the material and, very importantly, can illustrate the relationships and connections between the different concepts in this unit.
2. Weekly tutorials, in which examples illustrating the material are presented for discussion (with fellow classmates and tutors) and problem-solving methods are practised. Tutorials form an important learning component of PHYS130. During tutorials in weeks 2-13, we will hold quizzes, based on the assigned problems issued the previous week.
