Your scores for exam 3 as well as final course grades have been posted to the gradebook and uploaded to Rutgers. The exam average was 72%. If 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.

Exam 3 information

posted Jun 28, 2019, 10:26 AM by Michael Gentile

  • It's this coming Wednesday, July 3rd. 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.

Here's what you need to know about exam 2:
  • It's this coming Monday, June 24th. It will be from 6pm-7:30pm. Lecture will follow at 7:45pm.
  • The calendar page indicates what sections will be covered on the exam, but in short: circuits and magnetism up through what we covered in lecture on Monday June 17th. The exam will have 5 open-ended questions with a mix of conceptual and mathematical parts.
  • 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.
  • You can bring one 3"x5" index card with whatever you want written on both sides.

Your scores for exam 1 have been posted to the gradebook. The average was 76%. 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.

Here's what you need to know about exam 1:
  • It's this coming Monday, June 10th. It will be from 6pm-7:30pm. Lecture will follow at 7:45pm.
  • The calendar page indicates what sections will be covered on the exam, but in short, the exam covers the first three lectures of the course. The exam will have 5 open-ended questions with a mix of conceptual and mathematical parts.
  • 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.
  • Practice problems along with solutions are posted. These will give you an idea of the style of question to expect on the exam. The exam questions will be somewhat different though (but involve the same physics ideas) so you'll need to be apply what you've learned to new situations. There's a page of reference information at the end of the practice problems. It will also be provided with the exam so you do not need to include any of that information on your index card.
