REGISTERING FOR MASTERING PHYSICS USERS WITH ACTIVE ACCOUNTS Login under the same label that you used previously (either Stand Alone or Young and Freedman 11th Edition). You will then be given the opportunity to register for a new class. The class code is MPADAMS0012. Don't forget to USE YOUR ASU POSTING ID for your student ID number. If you use anything else for your student ID number, then your MP grade will never be transferred properly to my gradebook. NEW USERS IMPORTANT: BE SURE TO USE YOUR ASU POSTING ID when asked to enter your "Student ID number". What if I don't know my POSTING ID? To sign up for Mastering Physics, you will need the 6-word Registration Code that comes with the Mastering Physics Packet packaged with your textbook. If you have purchased a new textbook (from the bookstore) that is not packaged with Mastering Physics, take your receipt to the Customer Service Desk at the bookstore and ask for Paula Bryant.) If you have purchased a used textbook, then you will have to purchase Mastering Physics separately. The bookstore may have a few of these. You should also be able to use a credit card at the Mastering Physics web site. To sign up, you will need to go to masteringphysics.com and then go through the registration process for the version you have purchased (either the Young-and-Freedman 12th edition version or the Stand-Alone version will work for our class). Once you are registered, then go through the logon process for the version you have purchased. At this point, the program will ask you for an identification code for our class. This code is (AKA the Course ID) MPADAMS0012 It will also ask for your student ID number. BE SURE TO USE YOUR ASU POSTING ID, in the form 1234-567. What if I don't know my POSTING ID? TIPS ON SUBMITTING HW ASSIGNMENTS WITH MASTERING PHYSICS Please, never use your browser's BACK button in the middle of an Mastering Physics session. The system is designed to only move in the forward direction. The way things are set up at this time, you will have four opportunities to answer each part of each problem (you will get six tries for the first one or two assignments and this number will gradually be reduced over the course of the semester, as you get accustomed to MP). There will be a wrong answer penalty of 3% per wrong answer (we will begin with 0% wrong answer penalty and gradually move to 2% and then 3%, as you get accustomed to MP). Always use three significant figures in your numerical answers (unless the program gives other instructions for a particular problem). Numerical answers must be correct to within 2%. Please note that the MP problem numbers may not always correspond to the problem numbers in the 12th edition of Young and Freedman. TIPS FOR USING THE SYMBOLIC ANSWER ENTRY FORMAT: To escape from superscript or subscript mode, use the rightarrow (→) key. If you type an expression, but forget to put part of it in parentheses, highlight the relevant part and then select parentheses from the math palette.
