Physics 2110 [2009]: Schedule

  • Homeworks are due at 4 pm on the day indicated in the Schedule below. Every homework problem is worth 10 points. Every graded homework is assigned numerical grade = (number of points given)/(total number of points). Cumulative grade for the homework is calculated at the end of the semester as follows:
    A for 85-100 % ; B for 65-85 % ; C for 50-65 % ; D for 30-50 %; F for less than 30 %. Two lowest-score homeworks will be droped from the calculation.

    Please note: This is my best estimate at a tentative schedule; it will be revised as needed as the course progresses.


  • Note: Homework assignments (abbreviated as HW below) will be posted weekly. Solutions to homework assignments (abbreviated as SOL) are to be posted next day after the due date. To read solutions, which are pdf files, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader and the plug-in for your browser. These are available for free.
