PHYS 3344 Grading Policy -- Fall 2017

You have to break a serious sweat to learn physics. The material is inherently difficult and it is common to be quite confused. With patience and diligence, the confusion lessens. Homework is issued weekly and is graded. I encourage you to work together on the problems. However, the final write-up must be your own work. Submitted homework assignments that are suspiciously similar will annoy me. There will be 1 in-class test as well as a final exam. See the PHYS 3344 syllabus for details.

Your final grade will be based on a weighted sum of your performance on homework, tests and the final exam. Individual assignments do not receive a letter grade.
