HOMEWORK

There are two parts to the homework: mastering physics (www.masteringphysics.com) and written homework. The written homework is assigned on this page. All problems listed are from the text book unless posted. The notation followed is C.NN where C is the chapter number and NN is the problem number. Hence 5.4 stands for 4th problem from chapter 5.

Mastering physics homework problems are assigned from www.masteringphysics.com. Please go to the website and register as a student using your student access code that either came with the textbook or purchased separately. Enroll in the course index that was sent to you over email.

INSTRUCTIONS

Complete instructions on how to go about solving the homework are given in this section of the syllabus.

We will select and grade in detail two problems from every homework; each of the two problems are worth 6 points each. he problems graded in detail are marked in bold red, on the homework page. Two of the black colored problems are graded out of 3 points each. But these are graded very coarsely with possible points of 0.75, 1.5 2.25, 3. A correct solution gets 3 points, a valiant attempt "almost there" gets 2.25 points, while a good attempt (right method with the correct equations, correct picture) could get 1.5 point, some attempt gets 0.75 points. The rest of the problems are given 1 point if you attempt it

Some of the problems might have extra parts and these are mentioned at the end of the table. But you can access them by clicking on the link adjacent to the problem.

If you are not doing well on the homeworks consistently, then something is not right and needs to be fixed. This can only happen if you talk to us. The earlier the better.
