20 percent in-class quizzes and reports 20 percent homework 30 percent test 1 30 percent final exam 4 percent optional extra credit assignments (2 percent each) ----------- 104 percent
Course grades are based on a total of 100 percent.
At the end of the course, I shall calculate the total score for each student. Based on the overall distribution of scores in the class, I may use the traditional means of assigning letter grades to scores ("A" for greater than 90%, "B" for 80% to 90%, etc.); or I may slide the grade boundaries downward to some degree.
If you know in advance that you will have to miss a test, or if you miss a test unexpectedly, you may request a makeup test. In order to request a makeup, you must fill out the following form and submit it to the Physics Department Office.
There will be no makeups for in-class material or homeworks.
You will NOT need the Mastering Physics access code for this course.
You might also look at some material describing measurements and calculations based upon them:
You will need to purchase a pad of good graph paper for your use in class. The paper must have 10 squares per inch (or, if that type is sold out, 8 squares per inch). The RIT bookstore sells two good varieties, each for about $6.
If my office door is open, please feel free to visit.
If you have any special needs, you must inform me during the first week of classes. Otherwise, I may not be able to make arrangements in time to help you. Please contact me after class or at my office.
