Grades: Homework (50); Lab (100); Quizzes (150); Midterm I (100); Midterm II (100); Final Exam (200).

Laboratory:  The first lab begins the week of Monday, April 5. The labs are listed on the next page and you must bring the lab write-up from your lab manual for each week. No labs are dropped.

Recitations: Homework assignments are discussed here. Quizzes, Midterms, and the Final are also held here.

Homework: The weekly assignments are listed on the next page: “Q4, 13” means question 4 and problem 13 from the text; “SQ4, S13” means question 4 and problem 13 from the supplement. The homework assignments are collected on Tuesdays.

Quizzes: There are seven, but the lowest one is dropped. No notes are allowed and a calculator is required.

Exams: No notes are allowed and a calculator is required, an equation sheet is provided. There will be an optional review session before each exam.  The time and location of the review sessions will be posted before each exam.

 

Missed Quizzes, Exams, or Labs:  There are no make-up quizzes or exams.  Missed quizzes and exams may be excused and missed labs may be made up while the apparatus remains in the lab -- but only with permission of Dr. Adelson (phone 292-2067; e-mail adelson@mps.ohio-state.edu; room 1036A, Smith Laboratory). Present documentation to him to verify that your absence was unavoidable.

Course Information: Please read the handout “General Information Physics 131-132-133”.

Study Aids: You are encouraged to come to office hours and ask questions!

Other aids include:

Free tutoring is available in the Tutor Room (room 1011A, Smith Lab).  A schedule of tutor room hours will be posted on the door after the first week of class.
