-|||+|Look here for announcements during the semester.||
 +| 28 Jan | Looking for the code examples from our text? See [[http://​www.instesre.org/​courses.htm|this link]], direct from the author. | 
 +| 18 Jan | Do not underestimate the amount of time this class is going to require. We are going to move FAST and build every week on new things we are learning. | 
 +| 18 Jan | Weekly readings and Homework 1: The first reading assignments have been posted. Note that we are entering week 2. The first homework is assigned as well; it is due Thursday 30 January. This is the last time I will remind you about your weekly homeworks and reading assignments. | 
 +| 18 Jan | Connecting to galileo: Please consult the instructions [[http://​faculty.virginia.edu/​comp-phys/​phys2660/​wiki/​doku.php?​id=software:​sw_main|here]] for how to connect to galileo from a personal computer. As many of you experienced,​ the web-based java applet method of connecting to galileo is unstable and often not working well. I recommend never using that method of connecting to galileo again and instead focusing on the above methods. | 
 +| 18 Jan | Waitlisters:​ If you are on the waitlist, I would ask that anyone who can afford to take this class next spring please do so. We are beyond reasonable max capacity, and although I want to accommodate everyone it is going to be difficult if not impossible. | 
 +| 18 Jan | Waitlisters:​ If you are on the waitlist and can take the lab at 12:30 on Thursdays, you should switch to that section, section 101. It has the shortest waitlist. |

 +| 22 Apr | HW12 was posted late. Hence I am giving you a few extra days to complete it. Instead of being due on Thursday as it normally would, HW12 is due on Sunday 28 April at midnight. Bring your hard copies to lecture on Tuesday.| 
 +| 1 Mar | Note that for this week's homework, you need to consult Brooks. Plan ahead so you can borrow a copy from some source and undertand the statement of the HW problem. Also...do not forget about the exam. | 
 +| 27 Feb | The readings list has been updated to include references appropriate for the alternative text by Reddy, et al. | 
 +| 30 Jan | HW01, part 2 had one lingering typo. The maximum DeltaL at the elastic limit in the example has been changed from 0.19 to 0.019. Hint: Look at the units on the elastic limit: Interpret the elastic limit is the maximum force per unit area, then use that to calculate the maximum DeltaL for some given length rod for the material you are considering. | 
 +| 28 Jan | HW01 had a small typo. For part (2) "​Processing a data file" the elastic limit values for the various substances should be in units of 1E8 N/m2, *not* 10E8 N/m2. I have fixed this typo on the wiki. If you already submitted HW01 you can go back and fix this error and submit a new version of your solution. Grading has not yet started. |
