Unformatted text preview: Welcome to Physics 7A! Spring 2010 Prof. Robin D. Erbacher 343 Phy/Geo Bldg [email protected] This course has two instructors: Prof. Robin Erbacher (me) rderbacher @ucdavis Prof. Mani Tripathi (Lead DL Instructor) smani @ucdavis You are enrolled in the only 7A class offered this quarter. 7A-C/D is offered Fall and Winter only. Final exam is Tuesday June 8 th , 6:00 pm-8:00 pm If you know you cannot make the final, you should take 7A in a different quarter. There are *no* make-up exams. Our website will be centered around Smartsite. Please read the course policy as soon as possible and let us know if you have questions. Cheating of any sort is not tolerated. This includes but is not limited to: • Copying during quizzes/exams. • Taking a test for another student. • Having a friend use your clicker to register you as present when you are not. • Modifying a quiz before asking for a re-grade. As soon as dishonesty is suspected the student is referred to Student Judicial Affairs. A.K.A - Clickers! We will use these to allow you (and us) to gauge your understanding on conceptual questions during lecture. You will receive credit for participation by answering questions. No matter whether correct or wrong. You need your own with your own student ID (bookstore). Bring clicker to next lecture! • We will have 5 quizzes during lectures, on alternate weeks. • You must attend your assigned lecture time: sleeping is not an excuse to go to a different lecture. • Your first quiz will be next week, Monday April 5th . Bring a calculator -- you may need it and we don’t have any to lend. QRST Green circles help identify you (name, ID). Purple circles helps them enter results accurately. We use letter “rubric” codes for partial credit scoring. The full course policy is in the document linked on Smartsite under Resources. You must read this! Quizzes: The lowest of your 5 quiz scores will be dropped for the final quiz average. There are no make- up quizzes. If you miss one, that one will be dropped. Final Grade Determination Your final grade is calculated two ways: 5% PRS + 45% top 4 quiz avg + 50% final exam +/- DL OR 5% PRS + 20% top 4 quiz avg + 75% final exam +/- DL The most favorable score is used for your grade. Discussion Labs (DLs) begin immediately after lecture today with section 1. All DLs are in EPhSci 2319. Equipment tables are set up there. People who are wait-listed or not enrolled in the DL need to obtain a PTA number from their TA: • Don’t join a table immediately. • Collect in a corner while the TA begins business, • Then the TA will address enrollment issues. • Full sections will give PTA numbers at the 2 nd meeting....
