  • The lab make-up dates for all Phys1P91 students, current as well as from previous spring evening classes, are scheduled for Monday Dec.4 to Friday Dec.8, 2:00-5:00 pm. There are no 5:00-8:00 pm make-up lab sessions.

    To perform the one allowed make-up lab for this term, go to your lab room MCH200 to find a timetable with the roster of students registered for one of the five make-up sessions. Check that there are no more than three students doing the lab that you need to do, then enter your name and lab number in the schedule. If your chosen session is full, you will have to register into another session so that there will be a workstation available for you to use.

    Be sure to have the TA initial and date your paper lab worksheet at the end of the lab session. You have six days, as usual, to submit your completed lab report. Bring the dated paper copy and the electronic copy with your laptop to Phil in MCB211 who will open a spot on Turnitin and enable you to upload the document.

  • PHYS 1P91: do not use Sakai for your eSequence (bugs have been discovered). Look up the value through WeBWorK instead.

  • Lectures are T W F 11:00-12:00 in TH247. Thursday 13:00-14:00 time slot is for weekly in-class tests;
    • for PHYS 1P21 students the tests are in DHOWES,
    • for PHYS 1P91 students the tests are in THSOS.

  • The graded weekly tests are available for pick up in H200 (PHYS 1P91 lab), during the Help Desk hours.

  • Laptops or portable alert devices like smartphones or smartwatches are not allowed during lectures

  • Be sure to monitor the homework link on the left. There will be some readings and online homework every week, and dedicating some time to this course every day is the best way to prepare for the weekly test. The volume of the material in this class is significant, so do a little bit every day, and start getting into this habit this week.
