Grading
13
Rules Expectations
  • Honesty students are expected to abide by the
    GSU Academic Honesty Policy (see
    http//www.gsu.edu/images/Downloadables/Undergrad_
    06-07_catalog.pdf
  • Attendance - veteran students enrolled in this
    course and receiving benefits for this semester
    must initial the Veterans attendance Roll each
    week.

14
Rules Expectations
  • All quizzes and exams are required.
  • Makeup-quizzes or exams are available only for
    instructor-approved circumstances (i.e. Physician
    documented illness, official GSU travel, GSU
    holidays, documented jury duty, or documented
    personal emergency).
  • Late homework assignments will not be accepted.

15
Rules Expectations
  • Tardiness Leaving Early
  • Lectures enter or exit the lecture hall as
    quietly as possible without asking permission or
    extending appologies
  • Quizzes or Exams - if you are late during quizzes
    and exams you will not be allowed to take the

  • Ringers should be set to off or vibrate only
    during lectures
  • Cell phone conversations should only occur
    outside the classroom or lecture hall
  • Cell phones should be turned off during quizzes
    and exams (use of cell phones or other
    communications devices during quizzes or exams
    will result in a zero score for that quiz or
    exam)

17
Rules Expectations
  • Questions during lecture - highly encouraged,
    even questions that may seem trivial may reveal
    fundamental misunderstandings that need
    clarification for success in this course. No
    physics related questions or comments in class
    will affect your grades in any way.

18
Secrets to Success
  • Read the material prior to lecture
  • Quizzes and exams may include questions or
    problems based on concepts from lectures, the
    textbook, and reading assignments
  • Take advantage of any and all study sessions
    offered by the physics graduate students
  • Scientific calculator will be required for
    homework, quizzes, and exams
  • One 8.5x11 inch page (front back) with notes
    may be brought and used for quizzes and exams

19
Homework
  • Assignments will be on WileyPLUS (web-based
    homework assignments)
