Fall 2018 Classes

ADDs will not be issued until classes start, based on available space.  For on-campus classes, you must show up at both of the first two days of class to retain your spot on the roster. 

  • Physics 4C-001 (21361) General Physics (for Scientists & Engineers)
    Monday & Wednesday afternoons 3:00 - 4:50 PM for Lecture/Discussion, in 1806
    Friday afternoon 1:30 - 4:20 PM for Lab, in 1810

  • Astronomy 10-ON1 (22598) The Solar System
    (ONLINE, with no required on-campus meetings)

    THIS SECTION IS FULL.  To have a chance to add, please get on the Waitlist for the class using CLASSweb.

    All pre-registered students MUST login to Canvas by midnight WEDNESDAY 8/22/2018, and make an initial post to the discussion board, to retain their position on the roster, or they will be dropped.  After that, students will be added to the class based on their position on the CLASSweb waitlist if they have contacted me, up to the capacity of the class.

    If there are openings after all waitlisted students have had the chance to add, students will be considered based on the date they contacted me by email.  If you are still hoping to add the class, and you aren't on the waitlist, please email me, but understand that space probably will NOT be available, and ADDs will not be issued beyond the ADD/DROP deadline of Monday, 3 September.
