Introduction
to Optics, Frank Pedrotti and Leno Pedrotti Use of your introductory physics text will help you substantially with the homework and is, therefore, strongly encouraged! |
Homework: |
Homework
problems will be assigned in class at which time the due date will be given. Please show
all of your work. Please write only on one side of the paper. You are encouraged to
discuss the homework with your colleagues, however, you are required to prepare your own
solutions. Homework sets that are turned in after the deadline will loose 10% of the assignment value per school day that it is late. |
Quizes: |
There will be a quiz each day except the day before an exam. The questions will be handed out at the beginning of class and collected at the end. |
Exams: |
There will be two in-class exams and a comprehensive final exam. |
Laboratory: |
There will be two lab groups and the groups will meet every other week. Dr. Granieri is in charge of the laboratories and will submit your lab grade to me to incorporate into the final course grade. |
Grades: |
The final grade will be determined as follows: Daily Quizes - 10% Homework – 35% Exams – 35% Laboratory – 20% |
