Attendance at tutorials is mandatory; locations and times of individual
sections are listed in the UW Time Schedule.
You MUST be present at the first tutorial meeting or you may be
DROPPED from the course.
If you are not yet enrolled, go to any tutorial section. If there
is space, you can do the first tutorial and register for that tutorial
section; if not, try another tutorial section.
You MUST take the lab course Physics 133 simultaneously with
You MUST be present at the first laboratory meeting or you will
be DROPPED from this course. If you are not
yet enrolled, go to any one of the lab sections. If there is space, you
can do the first experiment and get into the lab; if not, try another section.

The laboratory manual is printed by ASUW Publishing in
the Student Activities Building (the HUB). You should purchase the laboratory
manual during the first week of classes.
Teaching assistants will be available for consultation in the Physics
Study Center located in Room AM018.
Prof. Savage also holds his office hours in the Study Center on
Mondays and Fridays at 12:30 - 1:20 PM.

|There will be weekly short pretests, usually
at the beginning of lecture on Monday each week. These are intended to
start you thinking about key concepts that will be addressed in the tutorial
sessions later in the week. Pretests will NOT BE
GRADED or handed back. Completion of these tests, however,
will be a factor in determining your final
A set of homework problems from the textbook will be assigned on
Monday of each week. The homework assignments and solutions are available
on the Physics
123B Homework Web Page. Homework will be collected at the end of the
Wednesday lecture in the week following its
assignment. Solutions will be made available on the Homework Web Page after
homework has been collected from all students.
Tutorial homework will be assigned in the tutorial sessions and
will be collected at the beginning of the following tutorial.
There may be computer projects, assigned either in lecture or tutorial.
Computers are available in the Physics Study Center from 8:30 AM to 5:20
PM each day and at various other locations around campus (sites and hours
to be announced).
There will be three one-hour midterms and a two-hour final. Approximately
half of each exam will be based on material from the lectures and homework,
and half from material emphasized in the tutorials and in the laboratory.
The midterm exams will cover the material from the two or three weeks prior
to the week of the exam but may include earlier material as well. The final
examination will be comprehensive. All exams will be closed book.
You will NOT be allowed to bring any
notes into any examination.
The lowest midterm score for each student will be dropped.
A grade of 0.0 will be assigned to students who do not take the
final examination or miss two midterms.
There will be NO make-up exams.
Exam solutions will be made available on the Homework Web
Page soon after each exam.
|If you believe that the points on the examination
were incorrectly totaled or if there is a gross error in the grading, you
may return an exam for regrading. To do so, you must resubmit the examination
no later than at the beginning of the lecture following the one in which
the exams are returned. You must write a brief note on a separate sheet
of paper explaining the possible error in the grading, and attach this
paper to the exam. Do not make any changes or marks
on the original pages of the examination.
NOTE: Portions of each examination are
photocopied and will be checked. You should
be aware that any request for a regrade may result in a regrading of the
entire exam. Therefore your total score may decrease.
You will receive the same grade for Physics 123 and Physics
133. The two courses are components of a single integrated course that
consists of lecture, tutorial, and laboratory.
The relative weight between the examinations, the laboratory, the
tutorial, and the lecture homework will be 70 %, 10 %,
10 %, 10 % respectively. The four best test scores
from the three midterms and the final examination (which has the same weight
as two midterms) form the contribution from examinations.
Each student is expected to attend and receive passing scores for
nine labs during the quarter. The best eight scores will contribute to
the final grade as follows. A student's final grade will be based on his
or her performance in 133 as follows: Each satisfactory lab receives
a score: 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4. The scores for the best eight labs
are averaged to form the lab contribution to the final grade.
Completion of only seven labs. corresponds to receiving a ``0'' for one
of the eight labs.
A student completing fewer than seven labs will receive a final
grade of 0.0 for both 123 and 133.
If you find it necessary to withdraw
from the course, you must drop both Physics 123 and Physics 133 or you
will receive a 0.0 for the course in which you are still enrolled.
