The exam average was 74%. Solutions have been postedIf you are taking Physics 228 then I will see you next week. If not, have a great rest of the summer, and best of luck with everything! I'll bring the exams to the first Physics 228 lecture so you can pick them up if you wish. Physics 228 starts Tuesday night at 6pm in Hill Center room 116.

MasteringPhysics HW9 posted (for extra practice)

I've posted a 9th homework assignment to MasteringPhysics covering what we talked about at the final lecture. Since the assignment would normally be due after exam 3 I've made it for practice only. It won't count towards the homework part of your course grade. Use it as an additional resource for studying for exam 3.

Exam 3 information

posted Jun 27, 2018, 6:42 AM by Michael Gentile

Here's what you need to know about exam 3:
  • It's this coming Monday, July 2nd. It will be from 6pm-7:30pm.
  • The calendar page indicates what sections will be covered on the exam.
  • 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 involve what we will learn tonight. 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.

Your scores for exam 1 have been posted to the gradebook. The average was 73%. Solutions are available. The gradebook will now show your "projected grade" for the course. This isn't quite the same as your average though. The projected grade assumes you'll get the same score on exams 2 and 3 that you just got on exam 1. It also assumes your lecture classwork and MasteringPhysics averages don't change.

  • Practice problems along with solutions are posted. There's a page of reference information at the end of the practice problems. It will also be provided with the exam. We still have some exam 2 material to cover on Monday. Some of the problems refer to that. Start working on problems 1,2,3,5,6,7 for now.
