There will be no make-up tests.
There will be no make-up labs.
Calculators are required for this class and lab. You will need them in the lecture, and during tests. A basic scientific calculator will do.
Late Homework: Homework is due at the beginning of class on the date it is due. (For example, if it is assigned on Monday, it is due at the beginning of class on Wednesday.) Late homework will result in a penalty of 50% for each day late.
The in-class questions are broken into two categories:
I will announce the category of questions at the time of the questions.
Tests will be multiple choice questions. Questions may involve numerical calculation. They will also require a conceptual understanding of the material. Material covered on tests will include material covered in lecture, material from the text book, and material from lab work. Material from the text book includes not only the text of chapters, but questions throughout and at the end of the chapters (even those not assigned as homework) as well. In other words, you are expected to read and understand material in the text book.
The tests are closed book. Equation sheets will be provided during exams and will be available for review prior to exams. The specific material covered on a given test will depend on the material covered in class and will be announced before the test.
There will be no cumulative final exam. The last test (Test 4) will be given during the scheduled time for a final exam. See the course calendar for the time.
The lowest lab grade will be dropped.
