The second lab practical has been posted. You and your lab group will be performing the experiments in lab next week. Please discuss each experiment with your group members ahead of time. This practical really rewards those who prepare. Feel free to get feedback from your TAs about your ideas, but please don't leave that to the last minute so they have time to respond.
Exam 2 is this coming Monday. Here's everything you need to know:
If you received an 'A' or 'B+' in Physics 193 then you've already received an invitation from me to apply to be a learning assistant next academic year. If you are interested and have not yet attended an information session, three more have been added. Please attend!
Additional information can found in previous posts (see below).

A message from Mary Emenike, the Learning Assistant Program Coordinator:
I have added three additional info sessions next week for undergraduate students who are interested in an applying for the LA Program next year (2015-2016). Although attendance at an info session is not required, it is highly recommended.
Tuesday Feb 24th 3:20 pm - 4:40 pm Tillett 111
Thursday Feb 26th 12:00 pm - 1:20 pm Tillett 111
Friday Feb 27th 10:20 am - 11:40 am Tillett 111
We are in the process of accepting applications online and qualified applicants are being invited to sign up for group interviews. All applications received by 5:00 pm on Friday, March 6th are guaranteed to be reviewed.
If you got an A or B+ in Physics for Sciences 1 last semester you've already received an email from me inviting you to apply to be a Learning Assistant (LA) for the 2015-16 academic year. LAs run study groups for the course and help out in recitation and lab. If accepted you'll get paid $1500 per semester for your work! It also looks very impressive on your resume. Attached is a PDF with lots more information. Attending an information session would be a great idea. Lastly, you can apply to be an LA here. Check into all of this right away if you are interested. Information session are happening now and application deadlines are coming up quickly.
The first MasteringPhysics assignment has been posted. Click on the "Homework" tab above and log in to your account to start work on it. Homework will be posted each Thursday morning and will always be due the following Tuesday at 11:59pm.
Just a reminder that registration for study groups starts tomorrow (Friday) at 12pm and ends Sunday at 12pm. Be sure to register early to reserve a spot. See the attached PDF for more information.
As you probably already know, Rutgers is closing today at 4pm and reopening (tentatively) tomorrow at 1pm. That means according to Rutgers we should still be having lecture today... BUT, I don't want anyone considering doing anything unsafe to get to class, so LECTURE IS CANCELLED TODAY (I'll give everyone credit for being there though!). In addition, since most of our recitations are officially cancelled anyway, I'm going to cancel the rest as well. So, ALL MONDAY AND TUESDAY RECITATIONS ARE CANCELLED THIS WEEK.
But, because of how integrated the labs are with the course and how much everything is sequenced carefully we can't just skip today and tomorrow entirely. So, here's what you need to do BEFORE LECTURE ON WEDNESDAY:
That's it for now. See you Wednesday. Stay safe out there!
Information on study groups for Physics for Sciences 2 is here. Check out the attached PDF for all the details. Registration opens Friday Jan. 30th at 12pm and closes Sunday Feb. 1st at 12pm. Study groups begin Monday Feb. 2nd. Questions about study groups should be directed to Moraima Castro-Faix (Moraima.Castro-Faix@echo.rutgers.edu).
