PHY 2053 - Physics I - FALL 2013


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. These exams will not take place in your 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 "announcements" 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, hand-written, formula sheet on 8˝ x 11 inch paper (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 one additional (2 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 Unless superseded by a valid excuse a missed exam will result in a zero.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. 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 Wednesday December 4, 2013. 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 count for for a maximum of 60 points (out of 100) towards your overall course grade. None of the exam grades will be dropped.

Previous exams will be uploaded to the PHY2053 e-Learning WEBsite.
