    Daily Quiz

    Because of the pandemic I rearranged the Transport I course into on-line prerecorded lectures in addition to the regular in-person session. While I trust this won't be required this semester (despite Omicron), it was actually quite successful and prefered by the students in the class. Thus, we'll keep it this term as well! I ask you to listen to the narration of the notes (generally a whole lot shorter than a 75 minute lecture, as I tend to leave out all the fun stories) and answer a daily quiz associated with that lecture in Sakai. It is a lot easier if you look at the quiz questions before listening to the lecture, which is fine. You will get two tries at each quiz before the in-person class, and two tries after (the better of each pair count). The cumulative quiz score at the end of the semester will count the same as the mid-term, so don't forget to do them!

    Our scheduled in-person class will be reserved for demonstrations, stories, answering questions, help on homework, etc. - all the fun stuff. We will also be solving the "problem of the day" in class to give you extra practice in setting up and solving things.

    Homework Assignments

    These are links to the homeworks organized by due date. Click on a highlighted date to access the homework due that day. Your scanned solutions should be turned in on-line by 11:59pm on the due date. We are using Gradescope this term.
