Physics 7 - Syllabus
Winter 2007


The course grade will be determined by reading quizzes, homework, a midterm, and a final exam.

Grades will be calculated as follows:

Homework 24   15%  
Quiz Scores   24   15%
Midterm 40 25%
Final Exam     72 45%
Total 160 100%

Based on past experience you may expect the mean grade in Physics 7 to be a B-, with the rest of the grades curved appropriately.


I suggest the following strategy:

If you need additional help, see Prof. Smith or the TA during office hours or make an appointment to see Prof. Smith if you cannot make those hours.


Please read the ``UCSD Policy on Integrity of Scholarship'' in the General Catalog. The rules covering academic honesty will be rigorously enforced. For the purposes of this class cheating includes, but is not limited to, submitting another person's work as your own for grade consideration, copying from another student on assignments or exams, and use of any unauthorized materials in an exam. Any confirmed case of cheating will result in an ``F'' grade in Physics 7 and referral to the appropriate dean for disciplinary action.
