# PHY211 Spring 2012 Calendar

## Last updated on 1/16/12

Schedule for the future class topics and homework assignments is tentative and may change during the semester!

The exam dates are less likely to change.

These tests cover topics previously covered in the lectures.

Please read assigned sections of your textbook (Young & Freedman, University Physics 13th Edition Volume 1) before you come to the lecture. They are shown below the lecture topics.

Web based MasteringPhysics (MP) homework assignments are generally due on Wednesday by 8pm [sometimes extended deadline is given in square brackets].

Written homework assignments (Problem Set x) are due at the workshop meetings on Friday, except for Problem Set 10 which is due at the workshop meetings on Wednesday April 11. Please turn them in to your graduate Teaching Assistant. Homework will not be accepted after your Friday workshop.

The homework due is shown below Wednesday and Friday workshop topics.
