PHYS 1212 Fall 2015
PHYS 1212 Electricity, Magnetism, Optics and Modern Physics
Fall 2015
Classroom: Physics Building 202 (MWF 11:15 am – 12:05 pm)
Course Instructor: Prof. Yiping Zhao
Office: Physics Building 209 or Riverbend Research Lab South 221
Phone: 706-542-7792 or 706-542-2843
E-mail: [email protected]
Office Hour: Wednesday and Friday immediately after class or make an appointment
Required Textbook: Randall D. Knight “Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A Strategic
Approach” Third Edition (Pearson-Addison Wesley, 2012) (Books #3 & #4)
Course Format: This course consists of three classes and one lab per week. Each class lasts
fifty minutes. Before coming to class, you should have read the assigned materials, and
worked out the assigned questions and problems (homework). In the beginning of the class, I
will review the home-work problems, and then give a general lecture to review the basic
concepts and materials covered in the class. During the lecture, in-class activity problems will
be given. The student can either work independently, or to form a team and work together.
In-Class Activity: In the main part of the class, you will be assigned to work in teams or
independently on problems appeared in the lecture notes. Although I do not count the in-class
activity into the final course grade, problems in in-class activities or similar problems will be
appeared in the exams.
Homework: There are two kinds of homework assignments. One is the reading assignment,
which will be the materials covered in next class. Another assignment is the normal assignment
covering materials in current lecture. A homework grade will be assigned to the homework
assignment. Each homework assignment must be submitted no later than the start of the class in
which it will be discussed. Homework grade could contribute 20% of your final class grade.
Major Exams: There will be three major exams + the final exam in this course (Details see
class schedule). It is your responsibility to stay informed about all announcements concerning
this course by attending the lecture and by regularly checking the course website.
You will be allowed to bring to each test, a writing instrument, a pocket calculator, and one
original 8.5" by 11" sheet of paper containing constants, formulas, and any other information
that you might find useful. Both sides of the sheet may be used. No formulas or constants will
be provided on the testes. You are not allowed to use anything else during the test. No
computers, PDAs (Palm Pilots, et al.), or cell phones. Use of these or other electronic devices
during a test is a form of academic dishonesty.
There will be no course-wide make-up tests for students who miss one of the major exams. If
you miss one, contact me immediately to find out what you should do. A grade of zero will be
awarded for any major test that is missed without a valid reason. If you know that you cannot
get to a test, for any reason, let me know as soon as possible. Often these problems can be
handled more easily before the fact.

Grades: Your overall grade in this course will be determined by your Average Score (AS)
which is computed as Average Score = 0.85 × class grade + 0.15 × Lab grade.
Your class grade could be determined by the following three methods as shown in the table:
Method
Exams and Final Exam
Homework Grade
1
80%
20%
2
100%
0%
3
100% Final Exam Grade
0%
The highest score calculated through the three different methods will be assigned as your final
class grade. There will be NO class-wide grade curving in this course. The curving has already
been counted into the class grade calculation through the three methods. Any other curving
mechanism beyond your effort is not fair to other students in the class. It is the student’s
decision whether he would like to take the advantage of this curving.
The grade for major exams and final exam will be the weight average. The final exam counts
for two exams. When all the grades are in, the lowest of the five will be dropped, and your test
grade will be based on the best four. If the final examination is the lowest grade, it will count as
one test, and it will be averaged with the other three. There is one exception to this rule, if a
grade of zero is received as a result of academic dishonesty, that grade will not be dropped.
Also the lowest Homework grade will be dropped. If you miss any homework or major exam,
without an excuse, that will become the lowest grade that gets dropped. If you miss again, it
will not be dropped. There is one exception to this rule also, if a grade of zero is received as a
result of academic dishonesty, that grade will not be dropped.
Your overall letter grade in this course will be:
A
AB+
B
B-
100  90
89.99  85
84.99  80
79.99  75
74.99  70
C+
C
CD
F
69.99  65
64.99  55
54.99  50
49.99  30
< 29.99
Withdraw Policy: As long as the student regularly attends the class, and hand in home-work
before the withdraw deadline, if he or she wishes to withdraw from the class before the
withdraw deadline, he or she will obtain a “W”. If the student seldom comes to the class and
does not hand in homework but wishes to withdraw right before the withdraw deadline (<40%
of classes and numbers if homework up to the date of withdraw requirement), he or she will
obtain a “WF”.
Academic Integrity: The development of teamwork skills is a course objective in Physics
1211. Hence, all students are expected to actively participate in a collaborative group of
students when working on the in-class activity or homework. However, each student must turn
in her/his own activity or homework write-up containing only work to which she/he contributed.
2
Activity write-ups from groups of students will not be accepted. No student will submit an
activity or homework in the name of any other student. This is considered cheating by both
students involved and will be handled according to the policy for academic dishonesty stated
below. Collaboration of any sort during an examination or test is prohibited and considered
academic dishonesty. The first occurrence of academic dishonesty will result in a score of zero
on the assignment, activity, test or exam in question, and the violator will receive a written
warning. A zero received as a result of academic dishonesty will NOT be dropped from the
record as the lowest grade. The second occurrence of academic dishonesty will result in an “F”
for the course.
