In many of the classes of 8.01 and 8.02 we will ask questions that you respond to by using a radio frequency device sold by Turning Technologies. Your responses will provide us with instant feedback on our teaching of the material in the day's lesson and will also contribute to the portion of your course grade (7%) that is for class participation.
We ask you to purchase one of these devices; they are on sale at the Coop for $41.50. The device will be used in both 8.01 and 8.02 and will probably be used in other courses at MIT. The Coop also expects to operate a market for used Turning Point devices, similar to what it does for used textbooks. This link is to a PDF file with more information about the response devices.
Each device has a unique serial number that identifies the device to our RF receiver. As soon as you have purchased your device, we ask you to report the ID number of your device to us. Please do so by clicking this link.
If you would like to check whether we have correctly registered your device's serial number, follow this link. (It may take a day to be updated after you register your device.)
