About SI for this Course


SI is a FREE learning environment beneficial to all who are looking for a grade boost. This semester, I will hold three 50-minute sessions each week for Physics 111 in which we will cover lecture material in a group learning format. Each week, I will have worksheets to facilitate a discussion on topics that students find difficult in hopes that you will be able to work problems on your own for homework and exams. I will also hold review sessions before each exam this semester.

Everybody is welcome at these sessions, and I look forward to meeting you all! This is going to be a great semester!


Thanksgiving Break

Hey all,
I will not be holding sessions over break. This includes the two Sundays (11/19 and 11/26). I hope you all eat some delicious turkey and are ready to dive into some physics two Wednesdays from now!

Exam 3 Cheat Sheet answers

Hey all!
I just posted a "cheat sheet" for exam 3. This is essentially an explanation of the equation sheet. I hope that you guys will print off the sheet, and fill it out as best as you can. I posted a completed one so you can check your answers. Any equation that you can't explain without looking at the answer sheet is something you should study.
I hope this helps!
P.S. I am in the works of scheduling an exam review as well

Worksheet Answers

Hey everybody! I was asked if I could post answers (but not the solutions) to the worksheets we do in sessions. I will post answers to the ones we went over AND SOLUTIONS to ones we didn't get to. Also, if I altered the worksheet during a session, ill change it on the answer sheet too. Have a good long weekend (remember this weekend's Sunday session is cancelled)!
