FINAL TEST (Chapters ## 1-12)

 

Grading Procedures               The course grade is determined by the following components:

                                                   10% Activities in the Lab

                                                             30% Two Midterm Test Grades      

                                                             55% Final Test

                                                   5% Student’s Class Activity, Attitude, Attendance.

                                                                                A tentative grading scale is:

                                        A > 90, A- >87, B+ >84, B >80, B- >77, C+ >74, C >70, C- > 67, D+ > 64, D >60, D- >57, and F < 57.

 

Course Policies                        Homework is NOT graded but ALL exams will be largely based on concepts showing up in

                                                   homework problems.

                                                   All lab scores will be used in calculating your lab grade. No lab scores will be dropped.

                                                   You MUST complete a MINIMUM of 80% labs to pass this course.

                                                   Lab Report is due to the beginning of the next Lab.                                                   

                                                   Make-up exams will be given only for excused absences consistent with

                                                   CCNY policies.

                                                   Please give me your attention during lecture.

                                                   I will do my best to start and end lecture on time.

 

Advice                                       The payoff for doing the homework is a better understanding of the physics and,

                                                   consequently, higher examination scores. I HIGHLY recommend that you do all the

                                                   homework, Lab Reports, and any supplementary problems.

 

Student Conduct                     All students must be honest and forthright in their academic studies. Please see

                                                   Rules and Responsibilities at CCNY for descriptions of what

                                                   constitutes plagiarism, cheating, and academic misconduct.

 

  Electronic Devices                All communication devices should be turned off BEFORE beginning of class sessions:

                                                  any case of using such devices will be considered as infraction.

                                                  Absolutely no cell phones for calculations in Class. Only BASIC calculators

                                                  can be used during the Tests: no calculators with memory.

 

Absolutely  NO FOOD in Class, please!!!
