As expected, as I go through this new course for the first time there will be the need to update, correct and tweak the new materials. There are a couple of different reasons for this.
Firstly, as I work with the new course on its maiden voyage, there will be things that I initially thought I wanted to do one way, but actually find that I want to do a different way – that leads to tweaking, rearranging and updating. Secondly, since these materials are being used with students for the very first time, some errors and typos are likely to come to light that my eyes alone will have missed on the first run through. Please bear with me as I/we grapple with the new course.
In order for you to keep up to speed with the tweaks in the notes, please make sure that you reference the date and time stamp at the bottom of the pages to ensure that you have the most up to date version.
For example, this morning (9/9/13) I have tweaked the UNIT 1 notes in a couple of ways. Changing the Coulomb’s law equation to force being proportional (not equal) to, the charges/distance variables, and tidying some misleading unit references that I had on pages 23 and 24.
