Announcements
Apr. 30, 2007
Final exam mean was 11/20. Final exam grades are posted on
WebAssign, and solutions are given
here.
THE THRESHOLDS FOR LETTER GRADES WILL BE THOSE GIVEN IN SYLLABUS ("NO
CURVE").
LETTER GRADES FOR COURSE ARE NOW POSTED ON WEBASSIGN, ALONG WITH ALL SCORES.
There will be no rounding of grades. If we were to round the
grades when they fell within a certain tolerance,
it would amount to moving the thresholds. While somewhat arbitrary, the
thresholds are fair and were stated in the syllabus. Please do not
write or call to ask for changes to this policy.

Your
current HITT points were emailed to you today. If you have not recieved
the message, you may have:
 not registered your HITT properly
 entered invalid email address (I got a few bounced messages).
You still have about one week, until Apr 28, to sort out all issues
with your HITT registration. If you received two messages, it means
your clicker is registered for both 2nd and 3rd periodin this case,
the system will use the period that has the most points.

Welcome to PHY2048! This web page will open as you enter
the course web site. It will contain all current announcements such as
assignments of auditoriums for exams, schedule changes, etc.
Let's work together to have a mutually productive and enjoyable
semester.
Prerequisites and preparation:
Differential and integral
calculus, with a good working knowledge of trigonometry and elementary
algebra. This course relies heavily on this level of math (see text,
Appendix E). Vectors are used extensively, with concepts to be
developed in class as needed. If you are not comfortable at this level
of mathematics, then you should consider taking the appropriate
refresher course before taking this class. Here is a selfassessment which should help
you judge your level of mathematics preparation.
Technical problems: If you are having
particular technical
problems with some aspect of this course, and you believe that email
might be sufficient to resolve the technical problem then use one of
these email links:
