## PHY 2049 - Physics 2 with Calculus - Summer 2014

### Final Score Determination

Your final score (100 points max) is the sum of the following:

 Source Points How calculated Homework 20 (HWscore/maximumscore)*20/0.9 Quizzes 20 (Quiz Score/maximum score)*20/0.9 Exam 1 20 (20)*(exam score/maximum score) Exam 2 20 (20)*(exam score/maximum score) Final 20 (20)*(exam score/maximm score) HITT 5 HITT score/5 Total 105

However, extra credit is possible by answering H-ITT questions (5 points maximum).  HW and quizzes are not supposed to exceed 20.

There are homework assignments during most weeks on the Wiley Plus homework system. For most problems you get 5 tries to get the problem correct. Each student gets a unique set of numbers on his/her problems. There are no extensions on the homwork; however, at the end of the semester the homework score is divided by 0.9 to account for missed problem sets, technical difficulties, etc. (You can not recieve more that 100% on your homework score.) You are strongly encouraged to start entering your homework answers well ahead of the deadline. If you have an unforeseen technical difficulty like a down internet connection or computer virus causes you to miss the deadline, you will receive zero for that assignment. If you start early enough, any technical problem can be overcome.

The quiz in your discussion section will be related but not identical to a homework problem from the most recently due homework set from WileyPlus. The particular problem given in each discussion section is chosen at random so sometimes it will be an easier problem and sometimes a harder problem. Each section will get a different problem. The topics covered on each quiz are listed below.

 Quiz Homework Covered on Quiz Quiz 1 HW1 Quiz 2 HW2 Quiz 3 HW3 and HW4 Quiz 4 HW5 Quiz 5 HW6 Quiz 6 HW7 and HW8 Quiz 7 HW9 Quiz 8 HW10 Quiz 9 HW11

You will be permitted no more than 2 documented (e.g. medical note) absences from the discussion sections, with make-ups for missed quizzes to take place at the first opportunity determined by your TA. The documentation must be provided to your TA within 2 weeks of the missed quiz or a rational reason that it will be delayed must be e-mailed along with the projected receipt date of the documentation to both your TA and to phy2049 AT phys.ufl.edu within those 2 weeks. All quizzes must be made up prior to the last day of classes (Aug. 9).

To provide a measure of forgiveness for illnesses and other challenges that life throws at you, your quiz score will be divided by 0.9 at the end of the semester. (You can not receive more than 100%).

There are a total of three exams, two during term exams and a final exam given at the end of the semester. The dates and chapter coverage are given on the schedule page. All exams in summer are held during the class. Exam questions will be taken from a number of sources, including, but not limited to, the textbook, lectures and assigned problems. Exam format is multiple choice using ScanTron sheets. The answer which you bubble in on the ScanTron is the one we grade. If you make an error bubbling in an answer and miss a question, then you do not receive credit for the question. On the other hand, if you guess a question and get it correct even though you did not know how to do the problem, then you get credit for the problem. Each exam will have between 12-15 questions and is worth 20 % of your grade.

What material you are allowed to bring to the exam is described here.

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 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 during-term exams) given at the end of the semester (date and time t.b.d.) at a mutually agreeable time.

Students who need special accomodations due to a disability must receive a letter from the Disability Resource Center and present it to one of the instructors at least four days prior to the exam.

Note that you can expect some technical problems during the semester such as having a dead battery in your remote. You are responsible for maintaining the functioning of your remote. No credit will be given for questions in class if you forget your remote or it is not working or you do not respond to the question in the allotted time. You may not bring anyone else's transmitter to class. Doing so violates our academic honesty policy, and the incident will be filed with the Dean of Student's Office.

We will email your scores for the student response questions once a week, assuming that you do the required registration of your remote. To receive credit for your responses, your remote number must be registered on the H-ITT registration page.

Total minimal scores (out of 100 points) ensuring a particular letter-grade are shown below (grades are not rounded). Note that this scale is absolute and will not be adjusted to a curve. This ensures that there is no competition between students.

 Grade Minimum A 90 A- 85 B+ 80 B 75 B- 70 C+ 65 C 60 C- 55 D+ 50 D 45 D- 40
