Announcements

The mock exam for the final will most likely be August 1st from 5:30 - 8:30 pm. This is tentative; if you have any other suggestions before this date, please let me know. I'll do my best to accomodate! 

 

Introduction

Hey, everyone! My name's Jackson Carr, and I'll be your SI leader for PH 222 this summer. A few quick things about me: I'm a senior Physics major with minors in Mathematics and Chemistry. I have a passion for astrophysics and space exploration, and I hope to further that passion in the future with a career revolving around the aerospace industry with the ultimate goal of becoming an Astronaut. At any given time, you may catch me discussing the level of scientific literacy of the general public, scurrying about the third floor of Campbell Hall, binge-watching Netflix, or sleeping in a hammock – but you'll most likely just see me during class and SI sessions. I look forward to working with all of you this semester!

 

Why Attend SI?

General Physics II is going to be a very fast-paced, rigorous class this semester as it's 15 weeks worth of material packed into 9, so please use the resources available to you in order to learn the material as much as possible – that includes SI! Typically, SI is offered for courses that have a high percentage of students who make below average or failing grades. As a free, voluntary review system centered around student-led "tutoring," SI seeks to provide another avenue of help for students who are struggling with the material in any way whatsoever. Whether you're trying to pass the class or get those last few points for an A, SI is there to help. So if you need it, please let me know and I'll do my best to help in any way that I can. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please email me or get in touch with me during or after class.

 

Session Times and Location

My sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 - 2:00 PM in CH 396.

You may schedule an office hour with me by appointment. Please email me with times that you're available, and we will coordinate an opportunity to meet. If you still need additional help, the University Academic Success Center also offers free tutoring, so stop by the office in the Education Building (across from Starbucks) if you're interested in that.
