  • Instruction Mode: Distance Learning-Asynchronous
    Enrolled students will receive an email with instructions for joining a course orientation (via Zoom) on the first day of class at 7:30 pm. The orientation session will be recorded for those not able to join live. PHYS 1102 allows considerable flexibility, but students must plan to participate in the Zoom tutoring sessions regularly. Time-management skills and self-motivation are crucial to success. Freshmen are not allowed to enroll due to difficulty level and enrollment capacity. All enrollment requests should be directed to physicsenrollment@cornell.edu
