October 16, 2008 Physics 114C - Review 01 3/35 About Exam 1 On Friday, October 17 (tomorrow) we will have Exam 1, which covers Walker, Chapters 1-5 and my lectures 1-12. Exam 1 will have assigned seating . Look for “Seating” on Tycho to get your seat assignment for Exam 1. A number of left-handed seats are not assigned. If you need a left-handed seat, take one when you come to the exam. Exam 1 is closed-book, but you may bring with you one page of notes on a 8½x11” sheet of paper (both sides). Bring a Scantron sheet and a scientific calculator with good batteries. Exam 1 will have a multiple-choice section (60 pts) based on questions taken from lecture example problems and “two-dot” end-of-chapter problems in Walker. Exam 1 will have a free-response section (20 pts) based on a selected problem from the Tycho homework. Exam 1 will have a free-response section (20 pts) based on “Conceptual Questions” from Walker requiring written answers.
