PHY 2048 - Physics with Calculus 1 - Summer 2015


There will be 3 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 take place in your lecture hall in the physics building. 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 can bring 1 handwritten formula sheet (both sides) for exams 1-3 and 2 handwritten formula sheets for the Final Exam. Cell phones may not be used under any circumstances.

Unless superseded by a valid excuse a missed exam will result in a zero.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 previous exams) given on a date to be announed. The grade on this make-up exam will replace the missed exam. The three in-term exams and the final exam are equally weighted and count for 75% of the overall course grade. None of the exam grades will be dropped.
