Electromagnetism 2 - Fall 2016
This course is the second semester of electricity and magnetism at the undergraduate physics level. Time enters our theory of electromagnetic fields and we arrive at Maxwell's equations—the complete classical theory of electromagnetism. The arrival happens pretty early in the term, and the bulk of our work will be to study electromagnetic waves and radiation, culminating in a discussion of the special theory of relativity.

Methods by which students will
be evaluated and their grade determined:
Grades will be based on two midterm exams, the final exam,
and homework. There will be approximately 8 homework assignments.
The lowest score on the three exams will be dropped; the remaining two will each count for 35% of your score, with homework making up the remaining 30%. If you miss an exam, I will make that the one dropped.
Other course notes:
All students are required to abide by the Student Conduct & Honor Code of the University of Florida.
Attendance will not be monitored; however, exam questions will mostly come from topics discussed in class.
