WELCOME TO JERRY ARTZ'S WEB PAGE!!

My Spring, 2014 schedule is here.    If you would like to schedule an appointment with me, please call or email me.
Some excellent "physics links" come from Georgia State Univ. ("hyperphysics") .  Have fun with these!
Or need help with researching a physics topic?  Go here.
Need help with your oral presentations?  Hamline has an excellent resource for you here.
And here is a link to the Monday, March 26, 2012 WCCO TV News Good Question.
And here is the latest information regarding  the 3-2 Hamline to U of MN Engineering Transfer (updated 10-22-12).
