Analytical Schedule of Recitations

1st week

Topics:

A proposed resolution process for applied problems in Physics and Mathematics

 

Basic Points:

STEP 1: Identify the quantity or quantities the problem asks for.
STEP 2: Identify an expression that provides the unknown quantity.
STEP 3: If the expression has to the left the unknown quantity and to the right all known quantities you have the general expression that gives you the quantity asked for.

If the expression has to the right an unknown quantity, write another formula that provides the unknown quantity in terms of other quantities. Continue the process until all quantities to the right are known.

Step 4: Now you have the general expression that gives you the quantity asked for in symbolic form.

Step 5: Graph of the general solution

Step 6: Now substitute the numerical values along with the unit of measurement. (If a numerical answer is required.)

Step 7: Perform the operation with the numerical values and units. Report the result in the form numerical value with unit.

Note the three step (three lines resolution process from the general expression to the numerical result.)

Step 8: Investigation of the final solution (Step 4 and 7)

Homework Format Guidelines

 

1. Homework is to be turned in on Letter size (8Ĺ*11) plain paper.

Please do not use any other kind of paper.

 

2. Clearly print studentís [Student number], [First Name], [Last Name] on top of the first page.

Please use the name exactly as shown on the class roll.

 

3. Homework should be stapled.

Please do not glue, clip, or fold your homework.

Loose pages will not be accepted.

 

4. Homework should be done on one side of paper only.

Writing should be legible. 

The steps should be clear if would like the grader to understand the process of your thoughts.

 

5. If there are sub-problems in one homework problem, answers to each sub-problem should be worked on in order, separately.

Physical quantities have units of measurements, include them.

 

6. Homework should be done using current technology tools.

 

All guidelines should be followed exactly for grading accuracy and efficiency.

Your cooperation will certainly be appreciated!
