## Introduction

Hello Students,

I'm Karapet Karapetyan, and I want to welcome you to my Physics 220 class for Fall 2021. This course will be taught entirely online, with some Online Live Zoom components; including all weekly assignment, lectures, quizzes, and exams.

You will be using the course webpages on Canvas every week--you should be logging into Canvas at least three times a week.  A tremendous amount of multimedia resources are available for you; pre-recorded Chapter lectures, problem solving videos, and various animations are posted for each week's material. Portions of the scheduled class times are going to be dedicated to conducting office hours and discussion sections, quizzes, and exams, and group work with your fellow students for lab, with the expectation that you are regularly watching the posted videos, using the various resources available to you, and coming to office hours prepared with questions to ask.

We will have MANDATORY 120 - 180  minutes long Friday meetings starting at 12.30 pm. These meetings are designed for lecture highlights of the pre-recorded lectures, Lab introduction, Recitations, and Exams.

Looking forward to seeing you online on first day!
