Welcome to Physics

The 2013-2014 school year has started. Welcome to Physics.

Here is some general information about how the class runs.

Grades:
Approximately 50% Tests, 30% Labs, 20% homework

Tests: About twice a quarter, with semester finals also. Retakes are available, but only half the missed points are recoverable.

Labs: Although we’ll have weekly hands-on lab assignments, I’ll only have you write up formal lab reports about twice a quarter. (The first one will be due Sept. 18.) Late labs are penalized at 10% a week.

Homework: Most homework will be submitted online through the web site https://quest.cns.utexas.edu/   It will be graded for accuracy, but on a generous scale because I recognize that homework is practice and created to find mistakes. Students who have difficulty getting internet access should talk with me. Accommodations will be found. No late homework accepted except for excused absences.

Grading Scale: 100-90 A, 90-80 B, 80-70 C, 70-60 D,  0-60 F.

Supplies:
Textbook
Notebook, or section of a notebook
Calculator


I hope you find the class challenging and fun.
