# Classes:

### Guidelines:

Each Friday there will a quiz at the end of class. Each quiz will be graded by the recitation instructors and returned during the following week's recitation session. Solutions will be posted the weekend following each quiz. The purpose of our quizzes is to encourage you to keep up with the homework assignments and to permit us to evaluate your progress regularly.

### Schedule:

The general topic for consideration in each class is listed along with the recommended pre-class reading and post-class exercises. Ch. 22: 1-6 means Chapter 22, Sections 1 through 6 from Halliday, Resnick, and Walker's 5th edition of Fundamentals of Physics. 22: 8P, 18P, 19P means problems 8, 18, and 19 from Chapter 22.
