posted 8-Apr-2019 at 12:34PM by Chad Sullivan

The first lecture is on Mon,22 May;the last is on Tue, 15 Aug. There will be four one hour quizzes (9, 30 June; 21 July, and 11 Aug. and two one hour finals (16 and 18 Aug.) These are all in the regular classroom. NO MAKEUPS- but you can discard the lowest of the four quizzes if that results in a higher grade than if all four were counted. Calculation of final score: The sum of the four (or three highest) will count about 40%, The two one hour finals a total of 40%, the lab 15%, and the homework 5% I will assign two problems per week to hand in. One of these will be graded(you will not know which one until you get your papers back) I will post keys for exams and HW after the papers are handed in.

Quizzes

Four quizzes are planned. These will be on Fridays at 0230 PM . Quiz Dates are Feb 9, March 2, March 30, and April 20 .

The four quizzes in lecture will occupy the full 50 minutes, and will be closed book. Students may use a calculator and a single 8 1/2X11 inch reference sheet (standard size paper), which has been prepared for use in working the quizzes. Students will be informed in lecture what material is to be covered on each quiz. Quizzes will consist of ten multiple-choice problems (no partial credits awarded) and two worded problems of which one may be similar to some previously considered problem. The quiz grade will include that of the group-problem of the recitation preceding the quiz and recorded as problem #1. Quiz problems will be graded by how much has been completed correctly. Solutions will be posted on the class web page. Graded quizzes will be returned at recitation.

Final Exam

The Final Exam is scheduled for Wednesday May 9 from 630 PM to 930 PM . Like the quizzes it will consist of worded problems and multiple-choice problems . A calculator and a single reference sheet may be used.

Recitations

Recitation sections will be held in classes of about 15 students to allow you to work in small groups and participate in solving problems. During the four recitations on the Thursdays preceding the lecture-quiz a cooperative group problem will be presented. These group problem will count as the first problem of the lecture-quiz for each member of the group. Thus each will consist of one group problem in recitation, ten multiple-choice problems, and two individual problems. Imperfect attendance at recitation sessions may result in a 50% penalty for the group-problem-component of the subsequent quiz score. On other recitations practice group-problems will be given and discussed.

Laboratory

All students are registered for a laboratory section meeting once a week in two consecutive periods. The laboratory material is an integral part of this course. Experiments are planned to give you useful hands-on experiences in various aspects of the course. The laboratory grade will be based on work on the six groups of experiments, lab predictions, and the lab report. “Predictions” are to be submitted prior to the scheduled lab. Prelab computer-exercises must be completed at least one hour before the scheduled lab. A minimum 60% grade in the laboratory is required to pass the course.

Because this course satisfies University requirements as a laboratory science class and as a writing-intensive course, you must pass the laboratory to receive a passing grade in the course. The laboratory grade will be based on the demonstration of a well organized and correct written technical communication of the physics concepts of this course in your laboratory journal and laboratory reports, well thought-out predictions and collaborative skills as evidenced by effective group work. Failure to participate in the laboratory will result in a laboratory grade of 0 for that topic. There are no make-up laboratories. Since the laboratory involves teamwork, no laboratory makeup will be allowed except in situations officially recognized by the University. In that case, the laboratory work must be made up by arrangement with your instructor before the next scheduled laboratory period. Grades for the laboratory work will be determined in part by laboratory reports (one for each laboratory topic). The specific part of the laboratory requiring a written report will be assigned by the instructor at the end of each laboratory topic (every two weeks). Reports should be no longer that 4 typed pages (using a word processor is encouraged and facilities for this are supplied by the University) including all necessary predictions, graphs, data tables, and calculations. Reports must be submitted to the instructor for grading before or at the subsequent lab meeting. Late reports will not be accepted. Revised reports, submitted by the next laboratory meeting and may be arranged only with instructor permission, to achieve a higher grade.

Course Grade

The course grade will be established using the better of the two following approximate weightings:

45% Sum of three best quizzes 55% All four quizzes

20% Laboratory work 20% Laboratory work

35% Final exam 25% Final exam

Dropping one of the quiz scores allows you to miss one quiz without penalty. Missing more than one quiz has serious consequences. Discuss this with the instructor before the quiz if the situation warrants it.

In assigning a course grade, the overall score for the lecture/recitation quizzes, the labs and the final exam will be calculated. Letter grades will be based roughly on the following percentages of the highest overall score achieved in this class:

A: 88-100% A-: 83-87% B+: 78-82% B: 73-77% B-: 68-72%

C+: 62-67% C: 56-61% C-: 50-55% D+: 45-49% D: 40-44%

The work that you submit in the quizzes, group problems and the final examination must be your own work and must follow the rules given for the particular examination. Any indication that you have received improper assistance will result in penalties ranging from a zero on the exam to expulsion from the University. We have been asked by the I. T. Dean to include the following statement for your information:

The Institute of Technology expects the highest standards of honesty and integrity in the academic performance of its students. Any act of scholastic dishonesty is regarded as a serious offense, which may result in expulsion from the University. The Institute of Technology defines scholastic dishonesty as submission of false records of academic achievement; cheating on assignments or examinations; plagiarizing; altering, forging, or misusing an academic record; taking, acquiring, or using test material without faculty permission; acting alone or in cooperation with another to obtain by dishonest means grades, honors, awards or professional endorsements. Aiding and abetting an act of dishonesty is considered a serious offense.

Office Hours: The lecturer and the TAs will be available for consultation time:

Prof. Courant: 231 Physics Mon and Tues, 1220 PM to 130 PM

Phone: 612 624 9361, E-mail: hans@physics.umn.edu

Please schedule consultation visits by e-mail or in person after lecture.

Homework-Grading policy
posted 8-Apr-2019 at 12:33PM by Chad Sullivan

HOMEWORK: I will assign two homework problems each week, to be posted on the news page. These are to be handed in each week at your Thursday recitation section. One of the problems will be graded (You will not know which one until after). Max will be 15 points for the graded problem, and 10 points for a good shot at the other. After your papers are returned I will post a key. GRADING POLICY: The quizzes will count 40% of your final score. I will count the quizzes two ways: 1)I will throw out the lowest of the four quizzes, or, 2) I will count all four. In each case I will normalize to 40% and give you the higher of the two. The finals will also count 40%. The lab will count 15%, and the HW, 5%.

GRADE CUTS (APPROXIMATE): A > or = 85:::A- 80-84::: B+ 75-79::: B 70-74:::B- 65-69::: C+ 58-64:::C 54-57::: C- 50-53::: D+ 44-49::: D 39-43:::F < 39

Physics 1302.500 Syllabus Spring 2008

PRELIMINARY (meaning I reserve the right to change anything)

Instructor:

T. Walsh
331 Physics, 624-1371
tfwalsh@umn.edu

Professor and TA office hours:

Please check the link to office hours.

Text and other materials:

"Physics for Scientists and Engineers", 3rd edition, Fishbane, Gasiorowicz and Thornton.
Physics 1302 Laboratory Manual
Laboratory Notebook (the cheap one in the bookstore)

Helpful supplements are the old "Calculus Made Easy" by Thompson and the "Competent Problem Solver". These are not required, however.

You will need a TI-30XA calculator ($10 at the bookstore). It is the only calculator allowed on quizzes and the final.

Quizzes:

There are four quizzes and the lowest score will be dropped. This means that you can miss one quiz for any reason. There are no late or makeup qizzes. The dates are:

February 13, March 5, April 2, April 23

At present, I expect that the quizzes will contain some multiple choice questions and up to two word problems. You will be allowed a 3x5 card of notes, a TI-30XA calculator and writing implements. Nothing else.

Because this class meets only twice a week, the 50 minutes before the 50 minute quiz will be a review session where you can ask questions or ask me to solve some of the problems you are responsible for.

Remember, you are responsible for complete and intelligible answers to quiz questions. Everything relevant to the final answer has to be written down, with no extra or confusing material scattered about (scratch it out if you must). The grader is the arbiter of whether or not an answer is satisfactory. You can get a correct numerical answer and still loose credit if your work is incomplete, difficult to understand or buried in a mass of discarded or irrelevant attempts.

Final Exam:

Date will be given later. Conditions are the same as for the quizzes.

Homework:

There is no collected homework. However, here is a suggested list of problems you should solve. It is also a list of chapters I expect to cover. I expect to cover these chapters in order, with details on the weekly news page.

Chapter Problems
12- 3,15,30,36,47,48
21- 10,40,44,55,63,67
22 - 6,28,45,56,70
23 - 25,29,33,47,51,56
24 - 22,53,66,77,81,85,88
25- 7,19,25,37,39,54
26 - 17,34,55,76,82,86
27 - 12,18,29,45,47,59
28- 7,19,25,43,52,59
29 - 9,21,29,42,63,69
30 - 4,6,25,35,47,52,67
31- 8,17,18,25,26,37
32 - 18,33,50,51,57
33 - 9,32,60,76,80
34 - 11,19,38,49,68,74

I will use some of these problems in making up quiz problems (same physics, different context). I may use other problems as well.

Some advice about problem solving: Do not attempt to remember the solutions to problems in preparing for quizzes. Nobody's memory is adequate to that task. Instead, practice analyzing problems for content and the relevant physics concepts. You can get to be good at this if you practice. See the "Competent Problem Solver" for methods. It is also a good idea to put yourself under time pressure (for example, with a cheap kitchen timer) to mimic the time limits on quizzes.

Group Problem Solving Sessions:

You will solve problems in groups as will be outlined by your TA. On quiz weeks, the group problem will be graded and contribute to your class grade. (The group sessions are on Mondays, so the graded problem will be Monday and the quiz Wednesday.)

Laboratory:

You will be responsible for six laboratory reports in the course of the semester. You must prepare properly for the lab, as the TA will look to check your lab manual for your preparation and this will be part of your lab grade.

You may be required to rewrite a report if the TA finds it unsatisfactory, either on physics or literary grounds.

Failure to participate in one lab will result in -20% of the grade being deducted on the next lab report, and so on. Your TA may waive this only in extreme cases.

There are no replacement or makeup labs.

You have to get at least 60% in lab to pass the course.

A very rough lab schedule is the following:

Lab I ---Weeks 3 and 4
Lab II ---Week 5
Lab III ---Weeks 6 and 7
Lab IV ---Weeks 8, 9 and 10
Lab V ---Weeks 11 and 12
Lab VI ---Weeks 13 and 14

There will probably be no lab the first week, but you must check the weekly news for further information. The second week lab will be on organization, but you are responsible for attending. I may move some things around, depending on how the other sections of 1302 run.

Grades:

Your grade is made up of 30% best 3 of 4 quizzes, 25% final, 30% lab, 15% group problems. The final course grade is then got from your aggregate total percentage as follows:

> 83% --> A- or better
> 68% --> B- or better
> 53% --> C- or better
> 43% --> D or better
< 43% or < 60% on lab = F

You can check with your TA for your percentage on labs and group problems and you can know (or guess) your percentage on quizzes (which you should also use for a final exam estimate). Then this table will tell you your approximate grade.

Many students panic way too early on their grades. Hang on if the first or second quiz scores look bad. Talk to me about improving your quiz taking skills.

If you have problems of any sort, please talk to me. However, I get lots of emails and it is much better to visit my office or talk to me before or after class.

Other Stuff:

Electricity and Magnetism is a difficult topic. Try to avoid falling behind and if you are having trouble, talk to me before it gets worse.

Don't cheat. It is bad for you. You are responsible for knowing and following the university student conduct code.

You are responsible for what is in the weekly news item and also for whatever I announce in class.

Physics 1302W

Introductory Physics for Science and Engineering II

General Information

Welcome to Physics 1302W. This is the second semester of a two-semester introductory course in physics for students whose main interests are in the physical sciences and engineering. This semester is devoted to the study of electromagnetism and optics, and the many applications associated with these fields. The science of electromagnetism was formulated primarily during the 18th and 19th centuries by such luminaries as Gauss, Faraday, and Maxwell. The concepts they developed describe a wide variety of physical phenomena and underlie many of today's technologies. The material you learn in this course will be important to you throughout your working life in any science-related career. It will also help you to understand the physical world around you. In this course you will: (i) develop a solid understanding of how the real world works based on a very small number of fundamental principles of physics; (ii) learn to solve complex problems by applying the fundamental principles of physics both qualitatively and quantitatively; (iii) be able to decide on the applicability of principles and techniques; and (iv) learn how to communicate technical information in an organized and intelligible manner.

Instructor: Aaron Wynveen
Office: Physics 237
Phone: 626-6581
E-mail: wynveen@physics.umn.edu, but not a good idea with this many students. If you have a question, see me in person after class or during my office hours.
Office hours: My office hours are 10:10-11:00 on Mondays and Wednesdays or by appointment.
Tutorial room (137 Physics): Starting from January 24th, Teaching Assistants will be available at certain times during the week to answer your physics-related problems. Times will be posted outside room 137.

Required Materials

The textbook used for this class is Paul A. Tipler and Gene Mosca: Physics for Scientists and Engineers, 6th edition, which can be found at http://bcs.whfreeman.com/tiplerphysics6e/

Important: It is strongly suggested that you purchase the textbook using the following procedure
1. Go to http://webassign.net
2. Select "I have a class key"
3. Enter the class key umn 5013 3649
4. Create a username (please use your U of M x500 ID, for example wynv0001) and password.
5. (If required) For Institution Code, enter: umn
6. You are now enrolled in the WebAssign course and will be asked to purchase access to the WebAssign system. Select the option Purchase Access Online. (Note, if you are unsure about the course, you will have free access for the first 2 weeks of the semester, during which you can register and complete assignments, etc. without purchasing a code. Since the access cards cannot be returned and are nonrefundable, you may not want to purchase the access card right away.
7. Use a credit card to pay WebAssign $25. This payment will give you one semester's access to both an electronic version of the textbook and the WebAssign homework system.
8. When you access the electronic version of the textbook, you will have the option of purchasing a printed version of the textbook for an additional 25 dollars plus about 6 dollars shipping. The publisher will ship the book directly to you.
In summary, a printed version of the text, an electronic version of the text and WebAssign will cost you about $56, including shipping. In comparison, the printed version alone costs $86.70 at Amazon. See the last page of this syllabus for more information.

You will also need the laboratory manual, entitled Physics for Science and Engineering Laboratory Manual-Mechanics Laboratory, current edition, and a lab journal (U of MN 2077-S). An Interwrite PRS RF Transponder unit ("clicker") will be required for this course. The lab manual, journal, and clicker can be purchased at the University Bookstore. Finally, a cheap, scientific calculator is required. Please do not use graphing calculators.

Supplementary Texts: Calculus will be used extensively in this course. If it is a few years since you have taken a calculus course, it would be a good idea to re-read the introductory parts of your old textbook. Several books have been written that offer help in the calculus topics relevant to introductory physics, for example: How to Ace Calculus by Adams, Thompson, and Hass, published by Freeman and Company; The Competent Problem Solver for Introductory Physics: Calculus Version, University of Minnesota, School of Physics and Astronomy; Mathematical Preparation for General Physics with Calculus by Davidson and Marion, published by W.B. Saunders Company; and So You Want to Take Physics by Cole, published by Saunders College Publishing.

Class Web Page

URL: https://www.physics.umn.edu/courses and select 1302W.200. You must log on using your University X.500 user name and password. The class web page will be the location for announcements regarding lectures, lab, homework, quizzes, and the final exam. Solutions to the homework and quizzes will be posted here. You can download, as a .pdf file, any material appearing on the class web page, including this Syllabus.

The Class

While brisk and challenging, the pace of this course should allow you to understand the material in depth, even if you have not previously studied this subject. The course is structured so that each topic builds on those covered previously. Therefore it is important that you understand each topic as it is presented. If something is unclear, do not ignore it in the hope that "It won't be covered on the test". The topic that you do not understand now may turn out to be essential for the understanding of tomorrow's topic, which may in turn be essential for the understanding of next week's topic, etc. There are many sources of help: come to me after lecture, or during my office hours; ask your TA during Discussion Sessions or during office hours; ask your fellow students. Don't be passive. The difficulties will not clear up by themselves. It may require hard work to master some of the essential concepts of physics, but with enough practice, you will come to understand (and appreciate) even the most difficult concepts.

The lectures will follow the sequence of topics presented in the book. I will try to clarify issues that I think are possible sources of confusion, and to emphasize the essential physical concepts for each topic. Lecture demonstrations will show the applicability of the theory to real-life situations. Example problems will also be done during class to show you how to approach a problem. You will get far more out of each lecture if you have already read the relevant material in the textbook. A tentative schedule is presented below, showing the chapters to be covered each week.

Clicker: Nearly every class period, a clicker question will be asked and your answer will be recorded. A correct answer scores 2 points, an incorrect answer, 1 point, and no answer (absent), 0 points. You are allowed to miss 20% of the questions, i.e., your clicker grade will be based out of 80% of all the clicker questions. These, essentially, should be free points.

Homework: Each week, approximately 10 WebAssign problems will be assigned via the course website. These should be completed by the due date provided with the assignment. These are the minimum number of problems that you should do to be successful in this course. Some suggested (non-graded) problems from the book may also be assigned and solutions will be posted on the course website. Please attempt these problems before peering at the solutions. While you are working on the homework problems, you are encouraged to discuss them with your fellow students, and to seek help from all sources, such as utilizing the TA office hours in Phys 137. However, the WebAssign problems submitted for grading should be done by you alone.

Discussion Sessions: During the Discussion Session you will solve physics problems, working together in teams of 3-4 students. After the problem has been solved, students may be called to the board to discuss their answers. On the Thursdays preceding the Friday In-lecture Quizzes, the Discussion Session will be devoted to the "Group" portion of the quiz. Active participation in the Discussion Sessions is required for taking the Group Quizzes. Missing a discussion session without a valid excuse will result in a 5-point deduction from the group portion of the quiz.

Quizzes and Final Exam: Your course grade will be based, in part, on your quiz scores (four Discussion Section/In-lecture Quizzes). Each quiz score has a "Group" component, worth 25% of your total quiz grade and which is administered in the Thursday Discussion Session preceding the In-lecture Quiz on Friday, and an In-lecture component, which is worth the remaining 75% of your total score. The lowest quiz score will be dropped, so that only three of your quiz scores will be used in determining your course grade. If, for some reason, you are unable to take a quiz at the scheduled time, this missed quiz will act as your dropped quiz. If you must be away from campus at the time of the final exam, I will try to arrange for you to take the final at some other time.For both the quizzes and the final exam, you may prepare and use one 8.5 by 11(double-sided) sheet of equations.

Laboratory Sessions

Because this course satisfies University requirements as a laboratory science class and as a writing intensive course, you must pass the laboratory (with a score of 60% or greater) to receive a passing grade in the course. The laboratory grade will be based on well-thought-out predictions, collaborative skills as evidenced by effective group work, and well-organized and clearly written technical reports.

You will write a total of five laboratory reports. The specific part of the laboratory for which you will write a report will be assigned to you by your instructor at the end of each laboratory topic (about every two-three weeks). Reports should be about 4 typed pages, including all necessary predictions, graphs, data tables, and calculations. Reports must be given to your laboratory instructor for grading no more than one week after they are assigned. Late reports will not be accepted. Graded reports will be returned to you no later than your next laboratory meeting. During the course of the semester, you will be allowed to resubmit one (and only one) report, excluding the final report, to achieve a higher grade. It must be given to your laboratory instructor within one week of the time the original report was returned to you.

Lab data is taken cooperatively, but you are responsible for writing your own reports. Copying lab reports can result in a failing grade for the course. Details of the laboratory grading scheme are in your laboratory manual and will be explained by your TA.

Read the relevant portions of the lab manual before attending a lab. Each lab has several components. Your TA will tell you which components to prepare each week. All the laboratory problems have sections called "Prediction" and "Warm-Up". Give your TA the predictions and the answers to the "Warm-Up" questions two days before your scheduled lab session.

Failure to participate in one laboratory will result in -20% of the grade of the following lab report (-40% if you miss 2 labs, etc.). Since the laboratory involves teamwork, no laboratory makeup will be allowed except in situations officially recognized by the University. In that case, the laboratory work must be made up by arrangement with your TA before your next scheduled laboratory period.

Grading

Your course grade will be based on the following components:
Clicker Questions: 5%
Homework: 10%
Laboratory: 15%
Scores of the three best quizzes: 45% (= 3 x 15%)
Final Exam: 25%

Upon calculating your final numerical grade, you will receive a letter grade of:

Resolving grading disputes: If you are dissatisfied with a grade you have received for any component of the course, express your complaint in a well-written paragraph and give it to me along with the relevant papers. I will consider the issue and give you the result as soon as possible.

Individual quiz scores may be rescaled ("curved") at the end of the semester if deemed appropriate. You will be notified if this is the case.

Legal Matters

Policy on Cheating, from the CSE student guide: "The College of Science and Engineering expects the highest standards of honesty and integrity in the academic performance of its students. Any act of scholastic dishonesty is regarded as a serious offense, which may result in expulsion. The College of Science and Engineering defines scholastic dishonesty as submission of false records of academic achievement; cheating on assignments or examinations; plagiarizing; altering, forging, or misusing an academic record; taking, acquiring, or using test materials without faculty permission; acting alone or in cooperation with another to obtain dishonestly grades, honors, awards, or professional endorsement. Aiding and abetting an act of scholastic dishonesty is also considered a serious offense."

Physics Department policy on Incompletes: "In order to receive an incomplete, you must have completed all portions of the course satisfactorily, including the labs, up to the date of the incomplete. An incomplete requires extraordinary circumstances as an excuse for not completing the course on time. It requires a written and signed agreement between the professor and the student, which is placed on file with the Physics Department. You cannot retake a major portion of the course through an incomplete."

Announcements

It is occasionally necessary to modify the course schedule, including the dates of quizzes. Students are responsible for ALL announcements made during the lecture, Discussion Session or Laboratory Period. Every announcement will be posted on the "Class News" web page. Missing an announcement is not an acceptable excuse for missing a quiz or a course-related deadline. It is the responsibility of any student missing a lecture to determine what course material and/or announcements were missed.
