Three quizzes @ 15% each
Final Exam: 15%
|Final||Chapters 7, 9 + comprehensive||Monday, 12/13, 8:00a-10:30a|
Homework for Physics 323 will be conducted via the World Wide Web. See the link and info on http://webhw.unca.edu/bennett_phys323.
You must maintain a Homework Solutions Manual that records the calculations used to submit answers online. This will be an invaluable study aid for Quizzes and (especially) the Final Exam. It also allows me to help you effectively if you have questions. Always bring your Homework Solutions Manual when stopping by my office for help.
Final averages will be rounded to two digits:
The goal of this cluster is to examine how biological systems transduce physical energies from the outside world into action potentials in the brain, and how those interpretations give rise to our perception of reality. To fully understand this process, one must study it from several primary disciplines like Physics, Psychology, Biology and Art.

This course is a member of Topical Cluster 15, Mechanical, Electrical and
Optical Inventions: Science and Societal
Impact. The theme of our cluster is inventions and their connections to science and society. There are numerous optical inventions such as lasers that have had enormous societal impacts which we will discuss in class.
