Physics 102 Class Web Page http://www.faculty.tarleton.edu/goderya Important !! Full syllabus is online: Read, understand and keep a printout for reference We will quickly review it today.
This is very True for Physics I hear and I forget I read and I remember I do and I understand “Confucius” http://www.faculty.tarleton.edu/goderya

Prerequisite You should have already taken Math 107 or an equivalent course I will give you a basic math skill test on Wednesday (September 8). Bring a Green Scantron Sheet. I have placed a list of topics to review on the class web page see “Review-A.pdf” worksheet
You Decide!! If the topics in the review worksheet and the skill test were a piece of cake You are good to go for this class! If you are familiar with the topics but don’t remember and your test was average or just above You should not have much problem, but you will have to study hard! and review the math skills.
You Decide!! If you knew a few things and did not know other things and your test was near the average but below You will have to work very hard, otherwise you will not make it. If you don’t know all or most of the topics in the review worksheet and you did not perform well in the skill test You will not make it thru this class. You should drop it.
