Analytical Physics IIB
Homework Information - Spring 2008
We will be
using a computerized grading system
It is the same system as used last semester in 227.
Here are the basic things that you need to know about the
- There will be 13
assignments during the course of the semester.
- The assignments,
unless otherwise noted, will be due at 10pm Monday evenings.
You should, however, try to complete the assignments before the
weekend. On weeks after the common hour exam, you will receive a
homework extension to 10pm on Wednesday.
- You are very strongly
encouraged to submit the homework on time. However, even
if, for some reason, you can't submit on time, it is still important
that you do the homework. That's how you'll learn the material. For
we will grant partial credit on a sliding scale. Credit for each
assignment will decrease to 25% over the course of 9 hours
after the due date. For example, at 1 am it will be
at 4 am 50% and at 7 am 25%. It will then remain at 25% for the
remainder of the semester.
- You are allowed 6
attempts at the solution for each part of each problem.
- If you get stuck on a problem, you can ask Mastering Physics to
give you a hint.
You are strongly encouraged to use these if you are really stuck. In
order to encourage
you to think hard about the problem before requesting the hints, you
will receive a bonus of 3% for each unused hint.
- Your lowest two homework grades will not count against
you. At the end of the semester, we will find the two homework
assignments for which you lost the greatest number of points. We will
then give you full credit for those assignments.
