PHY 241 and PHY 242

NOVA is changing the format of the General University Physics Course. It is now offered as PHY 241 and PHY 242. The contact hours and the curriculum are the same. The difference between the old and the new forma is one class hour. Before that hour was lecture/recitation, now the hour is lab/recitation.

Many students ask about the format of my current teaching. Here is a brief description of what to expect if you are taking a class with me.
