PHY 2048 - Physics with Calculus 1 - FALL 2014


There will be 2 in-term exams and a cumulative final exam. The date and time for each exam, and the chapters it covers are listed on the Course Schedule. These exams will not take place in your lecture hall in the physics building. Room assignments for where you must go to take the exams will be announced during class in the days leading up to the exam and posted on the course "announcements" web page. Exams are multiple choice with your answers bubbled in on Scantron sheets. Mark your answers carefully. What you mark will determine your score (independent of your having meant otherwise). To each exam you should bring a calculator (calculators may not be shared and may not have electronic communications capability), #2 pencils, an eraser, and your picture ID (preferably your UFID). Scrap paper will be provided. You will not be allowed to bring crib sheets or notes to the exams and cell phones may not be used. We will provide a formula sheet on the exam. This formula sheet will contain information necessary to do the problems. The formula sheet will be posted on the PHY2048 course website a week before your exam so that you can see what information will be on the exam. Unless superseded by a valid excuse a missed exam will result in a zero. Valid excuses are officially sanctioned UF events, medical excuses or family emergencies. Acceptable excuses will require a coach’s, doctor’s or instructor sanctioned note with a verifiable contact phone number. A valid excuse will allow you to take the cumulative make-up exam to replace the zero on the missed exam. There will be one cumulative make-up exam (covering material from both exams) given on Wednesday December 10, 2014. The grade on this make-up exam will replace the missed exam. The two in-term exams and the final exam be equally weighted and count for 75% of the overall course grade. None of the exam grades will be dropped.
