  • Recommended textbook: University Physics, Young and Freedman, Pearson Addison-Wesley, 12th or 13th Edition, Volume 1, (Chapters 1-20). Recommended means that the text is a supplemental resource and is not required for successful completion of the class.

    A used text is fine - we do not use the "Mastering Physics" web site that is bundled with the new textbooks.

    More information on textbook purchasing options.

    We will cover the first half of the book. Your next required course - EF 152 - will also use this text and will cover the remainder of the book.
      Any scientific calculator is allowed, but the TI 83 will be used for in-class examples. Cell phones and PDA based calculators will not be allowed on exams.
    Math calculator requirements
    Chemistry 1xx calculator requirement: no graphing calculators (check with instructor for details).

    A Turning Point personal response system "clicker" or equivalent will be required. Details will be provided the first week of class. You will have options of purchasing a new clicker, a used clicker, or a license to use a web device (laptop/tablet/phone.)
    Engineering paper is required for homework assignments.

    A 1" three-ring binder (or larger) is required for your EF 151 portfolio.
