Southern Illinois University Carbondale is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for study and work. Because some health and safety circumstances are beyond our control, we ask that you become familiar with the SIUC Emergency Response Plan and Building Emergency Response Team (BERT) program. Emergency response information is available on posters in buildings on campus, available on BERT's website at www.bert.siu.edu, Department of Safety's website www.dps.siu.edu (disaster drop down) and in Emergency Response Guideline pamphlet. Know how to respond to each type of emergency.

Instructors will provide guidance and direction to students in the classroom in the event of an emergency affecting your location. It is important that you follow these instructions and stay with your instructor during an evacuation or sheltering emergency. The Building Emergency Response Team will provide assistance to your instructor in evacuating the building or sheltering within the facility.

__TEXTBOOK__:
Physics for Scientists and Engineers (7th Edition) by Raymond A. Serway
and John W. Jewett {Brooks/Cole--Thompson}

__CLICKERS__:
Clickers are available at 710 Book Store and the University Bookstore in the Student Center. In addition, you may want to look at some of the instructions HERE.

__HOMEWORK__:
There will be homework assignments given during the semester,
aprroximately one assignment per week. Not all homework problems will
be graded. __However,
you must hand-in all of your homework solutions__. The solutions
for each homework assignment will be posted on the class web site on
the day listed on the web page of this course.

The homework assignments will be posted at the aforementioned URL site. It is your responsibility to check the web site to keep track of the assignments. In order to do this, you should visit the course site at least once a week, if not more often.

In order to really grasp the concepts, you will need to do the homework assignments yourself and to check your skills by comparing your solutions with the ones posted on the web.

SYLLABUSTentatively, the following topics will be covered during the
semester:
Electricity and Magnetism:
Since the main objective of this course is to understand and then successfully apply the fundamental concepts of physics to solving problems, it is important to have good math skills. To do well in the course, you need to have good math skills in algebra, trigonometry, and calculus (both differential and integral calculus). I strongly urge you to freshen up your math skills for this course. Please visit the Math Department's web site (see below) to review the relevant material in trig, algebra, and calculus, in particular review the materials posted for math 107, 108, 109, 150, and 250.
On the day of the exam (or final exam) you can bring copies of Appendixes A and D, however, this does not imply that you will be allowed to consult the textbook during the exam and Final Exam. On the day of the exam, bring your student ID. It will be checked. You may use calculators during the exams or final exam, so bring one of your own. Any information brought into the exams through programmable calculators constitutes academic dishonesty and will be subjected to judicial proceedings according to university rules (see Rule section). The exams will be based on any information discussed in the lectures and/or in the textbook. Predominant content will be from the lectures (this does not mean the exam questions will be identical to the numerical problems we solved in class). Consequently, it is important for you to attend lectures.
The exams collectively count 54 % toward the final grade in the course.
Date: August 6, 2010 (Friday)
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 11:50 a.m.
Place: Neckers 240
In case the fire alarm or the alarm is pulled during an exam and since we will have to vacate the lecture hall, the exam in question will not be graded. Instead, a replacement exam will be given on Friday at 8 P.M. The exact date will be posted on the web site. In case the
fire alarm or the alarm is pulled during the Final Exam, then a
replacement final will be administered on the Friday night of the final
exam week at a place and time to be listed on the class’ web site.
The
following weighting will be used for exams and final exam in computing
the final grade:
KEEPING UP WITH GRADES: Grades will be posted. You should visit office hours at least once after the first exam to find out how you are doing in the class. It is suggested that you do so more often. It is your responsibility to avoid surprises and know how you are doing at any given time throughout the course.
