We will NOT be using the newer 14th Edition of the text with
the same name.
We use only Chapters 21
to 31 in this course. Any version of the 13th
edition containing Chapters 21 - 31 is OK. Make
sure that any
access code bought separately is for the right text
and edition, stated above.
NJIT bookstore offers
(chapters 21 - 37) of the text bundled with the
access code kit and access to the E-text
0321928814 or 978-0321928818).
The bookstore sells some texts that are
reprints; they have modified titles containing the word
"astronomy" but the material is correct. Check with
the bookstore staff if you have questions.
In addition to buying an access code each student must
also enroll in the Mastering Physics course section that
his/her instructor identifies via a
course identifier code.
Homework assignments will be posted on-line in
Mastering Physics. Students login, download and solve the assigned problems,
and submit answers to the automated grading system. Register
in Mastering Physics early, even if you have used it before,
as the user interface is brand new and it
will take some time to get used to it.
