Policy on Missed Exams and Assignments


Primary text: “University Physics”, 13th Edition, authors Young & Freedman (Pearson Publishers 2012).  We use Chapters 21 to 31, offered as a bound book or 3 hole binder, or online E-text versions.   We will NOT be using the newer 14th Edition of the text with the same name. 

Any version of the 13th edition text containing Chapters 21 - 31 is OK.  Any access code kit bought separately must be for the right text and edition, stated above.

The NJIT bookstore offers Volume 2 (chapters 21 - 37) of Young and Freedman bundled with the access code kit and access to the E-text (ISBN = 0321928814 or 978-0321928818).   

NOTE: some of the texts sold in the bookstore are reprints; they have modified titles containing the word "astronomy" but the material is correct.  Check with the bookstore staff if you have questions.

Homework System: In addition to buying a text/code package 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.   If you have not used this system before, register early as it will take some time to get used to it.

We will be using a "classroom response system" called “iClickers”.  Each student must have an iClicker remote which can be sold back 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.
