The Syllabus explains the class policies.
Teaching “flipped”, “parallel”, open-online text, and mixed 121 and 141. if you were not in our mechanics class winter 2015, please see video explaining How we are learning physics for the previous mechanics class. This class will be similar, although we don’t yet have plans to learn the concepts simultaneously as we did in mechanics.

Please see: the SUSTAIN S15 projects website where you can post your project, and the Project Description so you know how to do your project.
