Rutgers Physics and Astronomy

Physics 227
Analytical Physics IIA: Electricity & Magnetism
Spring 2018

Lecturer: Prof. Jolie A. Cizewski



Course News:




All of the engineering students are being tested in their core courses at the beginning of the semester and again at the end of the semester. These data will be used to improve your learning experiences in these courses and in your future courses.   Your responses to these tests and surveys will have no bearing on your course grade. Your instructors will not see your scores, and will keep track only whether or not you took the tests.


There are four components to the pre and post test requirements:  two in-class exams and two on-line surveys, with an exam and survey and both at the beginning and at the end of the semester.  If you participate in all 4 components, you will get 100% on 2% of your grade; if you miss any of the 4 components you will get a zero for 2% of your grade.


Pre-test. Will was held in LECTURE on January 16, 2018.  Makeup will be held on January 30, 2018. Details to follow.


Pre-on-line survey. Take it NOW. Pre on-line survey opens at noon on Tuesday, January 16 and closes on Friday, January 26 at midnight. Upon survey completion save the confirmation page to document that you did complete the survey. Should the system not recognize your participation, this confirmation page is required to prove you did that the survey. The link: https://rutgers.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2gj6vKEE2lbv0Fv


You are required to take the tests, but have a no-penalty option of having your data withheld from the study if you choose not to participate.  


Thank you for your participation in this research project aimed at improving the experiences in engineering physics courses.  


STUDY GROUP OPPORTUNITY – Registration opens noon Jan 19, 2018

What: The Learning Centers are offering a FREE, non-credit study group for Physics 227, Spring 2018. It will meet on Wednesdays 1:40 to 3:00 pm in SEC 104 starting January 24.


Study groups offer an opportunity for students to engage in a collaborative learning environment and focus on course material each week. The study group is led by one of the learning assistants in Physics 227, who helps members understand the course concepts and principles, get organized, feel more prepared, and address questions. Groups meet once each week for 80 minutes. If you sign up for a study group, it is expected that you attend each session. If you miss more than 2 sessions, you will be removed from the session and your spot will be given to a student on the waiting list.


When: Registration begins at noon on Friday, January 19 until noon on Thursday, February 1, first come, first served. To register, please visit https://secure.rutgers.edu/rlcstudygroup/login.aspx.


How: To register, visit https://secure.rutgers.edu/rlcstudygroup/login.aspx.

Once you sign in with your net ID and password, you can view the meeting times and locations. You must be enrolled in Physics 227. When you register, you are committing to attend the study group for the full semester. 

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Study group times and locations are subject to change.

For more information or any questions, please contact learningassistants@echo.rutgers.edu.





When you register your Iclicker, use your RUID, not your NETID.

If you have already registered with your NETID, please re-register!




If you are having registration problems and need a special permission number, please submit requests through a form on the website at to http://physics.rutgers.edu/descr/descr-ug-program2.shtml

For other questions, contact the course lecturer Prof. Cizewski (cizewski@physics.rutgers.edu).



In this course you will learn the concepts of Electricity and Magnetism that are the basis of the technology around you. This is a tough, and I hope a rewarding, course. Recommendation: stay on top of what is happening every week of the semester since the material you are expected to master at the beginning is the foundation for the rest of the semester.

Jolie Cizewski.
