PHY 2048 - Physics I with Calculus - Spring 2012


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 page. These exams will not take place in the course's main 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 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 in-term exam you may bring a single formula sheet on 8½ x 11 inch paper (you can use both sides) and you should bring a calculator (calculators may not be shared), #2 pencils, an eraser and your picture ID (preferably your UFID). Scrap paper will be provided. To the final you may bring two additional (3 total) formula sheets.

Unless superseded by a valid excuse a missed exam will result in a zero.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. The documentation must be provided to your instructor within 2 weeks of the missed exam or a rational reason that it will be delayed must be e-mailed along with the projected receipt date of the documentation to the course e-mail address ( within those 2 weeks. 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 a time and location to be announced. 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 will count for 20% each (for a total of 60%) of the course final score. None of the exam grades will be dropped.

Practice exams are available from at the PHY2048 E-Learning site at
