Your scores for exam 3 as well as final grades have been posted to the gradebook and uploaded to Rutgers' systems. The exam average was 77%. Solutions will be available later this week. Exams will also be available for pickup later this week. I'll make an announcement when both are available.

If you are taking Physics 228 then I will see you tomorrow night. If not, have a great rest of the summer, and best of luck with everything!

Exam 3 information

posted Jun 30, 2017, 6:02 PM by Michael Gentile

Here's what you need to know about exam 3:
  • It's this coming Wednesday, July 5th. It will be from 6pm-7:30pm.
  • The calendar page indicates what sections will be covered on the exam, including what we'll cover in lecture on Monday. That's not the best situation since it will be a lot to study for an exam that's just two days later. Unfortunately there's not much choice because of how Rutgers has the course scheduled.
  • As usual the exam is non-cumulative and will have 5 open-ended questions with a mix of conceptual and mathematical parts.
  • Practice problems along with solutions are posted. Some of the problems will look very unfamiliar since they come from what we will cover on Monday. There's a page of reference information at the end of the practice problems. It will also be provided with the exam.
  • You can bring one 3"x5" index card with whatever you want written on both sides.
  • Bring a calculator, but it must be a dedicated calculator. No mobile apps. Graphing calculators are fine.
