Exams

There will be 2
mid-term exams and a final exam.
The mid-term exams will be closed-book, in-class exams, consisting
primarily of multiple choice questions. You must record your
answers on the provided "mark sense" forms for computer grading, so
bring a #2 pencil to class on exam days. Sample quizzes are
assigned as homework and are available at the course book web
site. Each mid-term exam counts 25% of your final grade. You
are responsible for, and will be tested on, any material that is covered
in class. This may include some material that is not in the
textbook. The approximate mid-term exam dates can be found in the
course **syllabus **(click
here).

Extra-credit on mid-term exams. After
taking a mid-term exam, you may obtain extra credit by correcting
mistakes you made on up to five
(5) of the exam questions.

The procedure is as follows. After your
grade is posted you may submit corrections.
Each correction must include:

1. the question number and the question itself,

2. the letter for the answer you gave,

3. a sentence explaining why your answer was wrong (unless it is "I didn't know and guessed"),

4. the letter for the correct answer,

5. which answer is the correct answer, and why that answer is the correct answer

(i.e., For question 5 "The unit of power is", I answered A "the coulomb",
because … However, the correct answer is B "the watt", because …).

Send
your corrections within a week
after the posting grade date (see the Announcements page) via email (nasc1100@yahoo.com).

Hint: *you may wish to
circle the answers on your exam sheet so that you have a record of your
answers**.*

The final exam will be cumulative, with about half
of the exam on material covered after the last in-class exam and about
half on material from throughout the semester. No extra-credit on the
final exam is available. It will be closed-book, about twice as long as
a mid-term exam, and will count 40% of your grade. It will take
place at the scheduled time: **Thursday, December 16, 2004, 12:30 -
2:30 a.m., MH 2002**
