PHY 2049 - Physics 2 with Calculus - Summer 2013


July 31, 2013

Many of you have concluded that the letter grade reported on e-Learning is your letter grade.  That is not correct. 

The grade in Sakai/e-Learning is based only on the exam socres for the two exams that are reported on this site.  It (the reported letter grade) does not inclue the quiz scores, homework or the clicker points.  I will shortley fix the HW and quiz scores.

June 13, 2013

The exam 1 scores (out of 13 and not 20 as the gradebook 2 suggests.  I will fix it as soon as I can figure out how) are now available in e-Learning in Gradebook 2.  It was a great performance on your part.  The class average was 9.2/13, which is more than what I expected..  Congratulations.

The distribution of scores is also shown there.

Old exams are now accessible through e-Learning.  A sample exam 1 is posted among the summer '13 exams.  Here if e exam code is 77777, the first answer is the correct one.

With regard to the homework, please make sure that you check the Wiley-Plus site for any due dates.  I should change the schedule page but sometimes I forget.  The problem selections shown on the wileyplus page are correct.
Which leads me to the most important point.  HW-8 is a jumbo sized assignment.  You should consider doing it well in advance of the due date.
