Quizzes:
Quizzes will be given beginning the 3rd week (Jan. 22rd, Feb. 5th,
Feb. 19th, and Mar. 5th). Your lowest quiz score will be dropped. There
will be no make-up quizzes. You must purchase your own scantron
form for quizzes (No. X101864-PAR). They are available at the
Bookstore and the general store co-op for $0.15 each. You will need a
No. 2 pencil to fill in the scantron. At the first quiz you will be
assigned a quiz code number. This number is yours for the rest of the
quarter. You have to put your proper quiz code number on every quiz
and the final. When results of exams are posted on-line, they will be
listed by quiz code number.
Final Exam:
The final examination will cover all of the material of the course. Please
check your final exam schedule and inform the instructor of any
conflicts within the first two weeks of the quarter.
Video Project:
Please refer to the Video Project Policy on the website for a detailed
explanation of the rules and grading for the video project.
Clickers:
You have the opportunity to participate in lecture by utilizing the inclass Interwrite PRS system (clickers). Before you use the clickers for the
first time, be sure to enter in your student ID under the setup menu.
Points for the clickers will mostly be assigned by participation. Every
question given in lecture is worth 3 points, you will be given 2 points for
merely answering with a point given for answering correctly. Clickers
will become part of lecture beginning the 2nd week of the quarter.
Add/Drop:
Use WebReg to add/change/drop, drop from waitlists. See Sharmila
Poddar (534-3290; <[email protected]>) in the Physics
