Office Hours:

Office:CEB 254-L (Physics Building)Hours:Monday, 9 AM - 12 PM; Wednesday, 2 - 5 PM- I am at Campus Saint-Jean (8406 - 91 Street), office 361D (McMahon Building), Tuesday and Thursday, 10 AM - 4 PM. Please contact me before you drop in, to make sure that I am in.

Tutorials:

- Schedule (including time allocated for each course) is posted at Physics Undergraduate Laboratories (or 2007/2008 Tutorial Schedule).
- Their role is not to solve the assignment problems, but to provide general problem-solving strategies.
- I will give extra sessions myself when we get closer to the exams. Also, supplementary exercises & answers will be posted on my Website.

Deferred Exams:

All Physics Winter term course deferred exams will be held on Monday, May 26th from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM in ETLC E1 013.Syllabus: Syllabus.pdf

Assignments:

- May be submitted in class, in my office or in the assignement drop box.
- Drop boxes are located on the third floor of the CEB Bldg in the main elevator foyer.
Our drop box is located at the middle row, 4th box from the right. (It is identified anyway.)- Make sure that you write your name and ID number on the assignments. No specific cover page required. You may use a pen or pencil.
