WWW and Grading Policy z This course makes extensive use of the World-Wide-Web z http://online.physics.uiuc.edu/courses/phys214 z Here you will find general course announcements, the course syllabus, the course description & information, the lecture slides, lab information, the homework assignments (which you will actually submit to be graded on the Web), sample exams, and the official gradebook. z Faculty: Lectures A,B: Paul Kwiat Lectures C,D: Bob Clegg Discussion: Benjamin Lev Labs: T.-C. Chiang z Grading Policy z see Course Description on Web for CAREFUL STATEMENT !! z Your final grade for Physics 214 will be based on your total score: z final exam (350 pts), z midterm exam (200 pts), z four labs (145 pts total), Begin in Week 2. Prelabs due then. z six homeworks (145 pts total), and z five quizzes (highest four = 150 pts total) z “Clicker” participation (10 pts total – one per class) z Rough guidelines for letter grade ranges are: z A+(960) A(935) A-(910) z B+(885) B(855) B-(830) z C+(800) C(770) C-(740) z D+(700) D(660) D-(620) F(<620) Slight change

i i - - Clickers Clickers Why? z reduce inhibitions on answering questions z interactive class, shown to improve learning by up to 4x How? z turn your clicker ON (last button) z wait until timer is activated z submit/change answer before timer stops Register online at 214 homepage , or http://www.iclicker.com/ (use your netid) z points awarded “retroactively”, but register soon anyway (but not in class!) Why, revisited z we’ll award a point for every lecture attended (out of 1000 total [in principle you can exceed 1000!]) z “attended” responded to 1/2 of questions z You can “attend” at most one lecture per day; it doesn’t matter which one Misc. z batteries – if the battery-low indicator flashes, you still have several lecture’s worth of energy, i.e., NO EXCUSE z at 1% of the final grade, kvetching and whining isn’t worth it z old I-Clickers (with 8-digit ID number) should work
