Rather than taking workshop time, I thought I’d give a briefing on the longest/most challenging problems of the current week’s Mastering Physics assignment here. There are a lot of problems but only three that are rated higher in difficulty than 1 out of 5. Number 1 is rated a 4, and #7 and #16 are each rated a 2.

You might also be interested in the median time it takes students to do problems… the eight longest problems, in descending order, are #6, #15, #16, #1, #19, #18, #4 and #8.

Finally, I plan to collect physics lab notebooks at the end of next Tuesday’s lab period. I would also like to do some checks on problem set notebooks; since Krishna is already doing that with math problem set notebooks during the math exam, I think I’ll join him in checking physics problem set notebooks at the same time.
