PHY 2048 - Physics with Calculus 1 - FALL 2014


You will be able to earn bonus points toward your overall course grade by coming to class and answering the H-ITT questions, however, participating in the H-ITT in-class questions is purely optional. You can earn a perfect grade in the course (i.e. 100 points) without the H-ITT bonus points.

On Friday August 29 you will be given an H-ITT practice question that will help you to become familiar with the system before the questions start counting for bonus points. The H-ITT questions will begin counting toward your bonus points on Wednesday September 3. You should purchase the H-ITT remote transmitter associated with the in-class student response system. This transmitter will let you respond to questions posed during class. Your response will be recorded. Simply responding will get you 1 point credit for the question, while responding correctly will get you 2 points credit. To get the credit you must register on the system. To register click at your earliest opportunity and follow the instructions on that page. It is your responsibility to ensure that your remote is functioning properly and that you are sending on the correct channel (see web site above for link to instructions for setting the remote channel). It is recommended that you set the channel at the start of each lecture. Lights on the remote will indicate that your answer has been recorded on the system. You can earn a maximum of 5 bonus points toward your overall course grade by answering the H-ITT questions. To provide a measure of forgiveness for unavoidable missed classes and for problems with the H-ITT transmitter, 20% of the H-ITT questions will be dropped in evaluating your bonus points. The course grade formula (PDF) shows how to calculate your H-ITT bonus points.
