A note for new physics students:
Physics is interesting and full of wonder, but it can also be a very challenging subject and students can find themselves working on complex puzzles. Often a great deal is discussed in each daily class and missing a single day can sometimes significantly affect learning. I suggest you work ahead as much as you are able, stay current on assignments, and ask for help sooner rather than later. Many students come in for office hours or set up study groups to work with other students and me on homework--take advantage of this additional time to check answers and ask questions. Your weekly recitation section (for Gen. College Physics I) is also a good time to seek assistance from graduate teaching assistants and other colleagues.
If you have questions, don't hesitate to email me.
