What is Mastering Physics?
MasteringPhysics is an online problem solving "tutoring"
system. The system guides you through the solution of multi-step
problems, removing roadblocks with wrong-answer-based feedback and
on-demand hints. It includes multi-step problems that incorporate
a wide variety of answer types, including symbolic math, fill-in-the-blank,
numerical, and multiple-choice. Numerical problems are also modulated
so that each student will receive a unique set of data and therefore
have unique numerical answers. Students will be encouraged to help
each other with solutions, but will still have to apply them to
their unique problems.
For you to log into MasteringPhysics, you will need the Course
ID (MPCALABRESE0003), a student access code (included in new text),
and your student ID (college ID number).
If you purchase a new textbook, you will find a student access code
in the Student Access Kit that comes with the text. If you purchase
a used text, you will have to purchase an access code directly from
the Mastering Physics website.
Students who have difficulties enrolling can usually find help through

the Physics 4C class......
4C is the third in a sequence of three inductory general physics
courses for science and engineering majors This course concentrates
on thermal physics, waves, sound light and modern physics. It
is important that the student has a very good command of algebra,
trigonometry, differential and integral calculus.
