Prerequisites: PHY 2049 or PHY 2061 (or the
equivalent) and MAP 2302 Differential Equations (or the equivalent). Please note
that prerequisites for MAP 2302 include vector calculus. This is the first part of
the PHY 3323/4324 sequence in electromagnetism for physics majors. This two semester
sequence covers static electric and magnetic fields, electric circuits, Maxwell's
equations, radiation and propagation of electromagnetic waves.
Daily reading assignments and daily homework assignments are
given on the homework web-page. Homework is due at the beginning of class on the
first Wednesday after the assignment is made.
Late homework is not accepted.
Homework is typically due in class on every Wednesday, and
includes all of the problems assigned on the homework web-page since the previous
Wednesday. You are strongly encouraged to do the homework problems on the day that
they are given on the schedule, rather than the night before they are due. Each part
of a homework problem is graded on a 0, 1, 2, 3 basis. Only if the answer is correct
will you receive 3 points. However, the correct answer is not sufficient for
obtaining all 3 points for a problem; you must also show your work. There are no
fractional grades. Your homework score will be the total of all of the individual
problems that you submit.
You are encouraged to work with others on the homework, but the
homework that you hand in must be in your own handwriting. Students working
together benefits all of the students involved.
Your grade will depend upon your performance on homework 20%,
three in-class tests 20% each, and a final exam 20%. The homework web-page gives the
dates of the tests and final exam)
The Dean of Students Office web-site has a
detailed discussion about academic honesty and the University of Florida Honor Code,
which was adopted by the Student Council. The Honor Code says:
"We, the members of the University of Florida community, pledge
to hold ourselves and our peers to the highest standards of honesty and
On all work submitted for credit by students at the University
of Florida, the following pledge is either required or implied:
"On my honor, I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid
