Course Schedule, Coordination and Grading Policy

 

1) Course Description  (Undergraduate bulletin 1997-98)

A continuation of Physics 101. Topics covered include: Wave motion; Sound; Temperature; First and second laws of thermodynamics; Kinetic theory of gasses; Coulomb's law; Electric field; Gauss' law; Electric potential; Capacitors and dielectrics; Circuits; The magnetic field; Faraday's law; Ampere's law.

 

2)         Pre-requisite (Math 101) or Co-requisite (Math 102)    

 

3)          Textbook: "Fundamentals of Physics", by Halliday, Resnick and Walker, Sixth Edition, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (2001).

 

4)             Method:     The course material will be presented in: lectures (3 hrs/week), lab work (3 hrs/week) and problem-solving techniques will be shown in recitations (1 hr/week). Attendance in both lectures and recitations is compulsory.

5)         Grading Policy

(A)        Course grade: The course grade will be evaluated as follows:

                                                                %age           *1000-P Syst.                Grades

Class-work                                           10%                      100                          A+ ³ 80                  53 £ C < 60

Laboratory                                            20%                      200                          77 £ A < 80            47 £ D+ < 53

First major exam                                 20%                      200                          73 £ B+ < 77          41 £ D < 47

Second major exam                             20%                      200                          67 £ B < 73             F < 41

Final exam                                            30%                      300                          60 £ C+ < 67

  Total                                                       100%                      1000                                       

*Based on the 1000-point system for the whole course, the class work grade will be assigned 100 points, Lab work 200 points, etc.

 

(B)             Class-work shall comprise of:

Ø       A minimum of 5 quizzes.

Ø       Homework problems are assigned from the textbook (exercises & problems) but will not be collected. Solutions to the homework problems will be posted on the Physics 102 notice board after completion of the corresponding chapter.

 

             (C)          Laboratory work

              The lab work score will be based on any or a combination of the lab reports, lab quizzes, lab exams, ... etc. as chosen by the lab instructor.  Lab sessions will start on the second week of the classes, i.e. 21 September 2002.

             

(D)        Major and final examinations

              The major exams and the final exam will be of multiple-choice type. The exams are scheduled as follows:

 

              First major exam   Saturday, 19 October 2002                               (Chapters 17 - 20)

              Second Major Exam               Wednesday, 18 December 2002                       (Chapters 21 - 26)

              Final Exam                              Saturday, 18 January 2003                               (Chapters 17 - 31)

 

6)         Policy on make-up exams

a)             If you miss a major or final exam, you should go and see the Coordinator with your official excuse within three days after the exam.

b)            Only official excuses are accepted. Personal excuses are not allowed.

c)             If you attend the exam, you cannot have a make-up exam.

d)                   If you miss the exam without a valid excuse, you get a ZERO score for that exam.

e)                   The make-up will be given once, and no make-up for the  final exam.

 

7)         Attendance: Attendance will be enforced and evaluated according to current university regulations. A DN grade will be given to any student exceeding 12 absences (LLF + Rec.) without official excuses and/or three absences in laboratory experiments. Any student in possession of an excuse for officially authorized absence must present this excuse to his instructor no later than one week following his resumption of class attendance. Only those students who have 5 absences, or less, in the whole semester shall be promoted to higher grade if they reach the borderline between two letter grades (for example F to D or B to B+ etc.).
