Policy on Missed Exams and Assignments


Primary textbook: “University Physics”, 13th Edition, authors Young & Freedman (Pearson 2012).  The E-text bundled together with access to the right (13th edition) homework assignments is sold under ISBN code 9780321741257 at the NJIT bookstore or on Pearson's web site. We are not using the 14th or 15th editions of the text and homework system at this time.    Hard copies of the text are available used at the NJIT bookstore or online sources; new 13th edition hard copies will not be available.   We use only Chapters 21 to 31 in this course.  Any version of the 13th edition containing Chapters 21 - 31 is OK. 

On-line Homework: 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.  There is a newly released version of the homework system called "Modified Mastering Physics".  We are not using it; We are using the original Mastering Physics platform reached using the following login url:


The Mastering Physics Course Identifier Codes for  Prof. Janow's Classes are:
Be sure to enroll in the correct section.

      MPRHJ121001FA19   for section 001
      MPRHJ121003FA19   for section 003
      MPRHJ121011FA19   for Section 011                              
      MPRHJ121013FA19   for Section 013

Student enrollment is ON           
 Homework is usually due about a week after the corresponding lecture.

Homework Assignment Due Dates

We will be using a classroom response system called “iClickers”.  Each student must have an iClicker remote unit which can later be sold or possibly used for other courses.  Students must take care of their clickers and bring them to each class.  iClickers are sold at the NJIT book store.
