mechnics encompasses virtually all of modern physics. We will
frequently discuss topics of current interest, emphasizing
recent experiments that test quantum mechanics. Why else would anyone
believe such a kooky theory?
- grading: The
grades will be an average
of problem sets, class and problem session participation (see the recapitulation) ,
two tests, and a
- problems session: F
1200-1250 Particiption is strongly encouraged.
the start of each class I will pick a student to summarize (without
notes) the previous lecture. If you have missed the previous
class, you will be expected to have reviewed the lecture notes.

on Title IV:
In an effort to meet obligations under
Title IX, UNM faculty, Teaching Assistants, and Graduate Assistants are
considered “responsible employees” by the Department of Education (see
pg 15 - http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/docs/qa-201404-title-ix.pdf).
This designation requires that any report of gender
discrimination which includes sexual harassment, sexual misconduct and
sexual violence made to a faculty member, TA, or GA must be reported to
the Title IX Coordinator at the Office of Equal Opportunity
(oeo.unm.edu). For more information on the campus policy regarding
sexual misconduct, see: https://policy.unm.edu/university-policies/2000/2740.html
