Readings, CDs&DVDs on Reserve

Feynman, Kleppner & Kolenkow, M Bayindir, Halliday and Resnic, CD&DVDs of Shankar and Lewin.


Attendance

Students are expected to come to class regularly and on time.  They should be prepared to discuss the textbook material and to work on the suggested problems.


Homework

Lecturers will suggest problems chosen from the textbook.  Students are strongly recommended to work on these problems.


Exams

There will be two 50-minutes midterm exams, and a 120-minutes final exam.  All exams will be closed book/closed notes. Calculators are not allowed.  Students whose midterm grades total below 10 cannot take the final exam!


Laboratory

One laboratory session every week. Details on the labs are given in the following link:

Grading


The weight that will determine the cumulative grade are as follows:


                        Contribution                          Exam Dates


Midterm 1           20%                              16 March 2017, 17:00

Midterm 2           20%                                2 May 2017, 18:00

Lab                       20%

Final                     40%


Letter grades will be determined according to the distribution of cumulative grades.
