Laboratory
 Physics 105A: The laboratory must be taken concurrently with
Physics 105 unless you took it
and passed it previously.
If you drop Physics 105 you automatically drop the lab  no exceptions.
Otherwise,
Physics 105A Lab is a
totally separate course from Physics 105. Students receive separate lab grades.
The lab manual (Physics
Laboratory Manual I) can be purchased at the bookstore
Physics
105 Course Syllabus  Summer 2006
Lectures / Recitations:
Pre
and Corequisite Courses:
§
Calculus and
vectors will be used.
§
All students must register for a lecture and
recitation section, a workshop section, and a section of the laboratory
course. Withdrawal from any of these
causes withdrawal from all parts of Physics 106.
Course
Materials:
§
Primary text (FOP):
Fundamentals of Physics, Volume 1, Seventh Edition, Halliday, Resnick
and
§
§
Web Sites:
Instructors will use the course web site http://web.njit.edu/~sirenko and their own
web sites for posting lecture notes, problems, exam results, study materials,
etc. So go there often.
Assignments: The weekly text, practice problem, and
homework assignments are listed in the schedule below.
§
The weekly text readings are in FOP (Halliday &
Resnick). Read each assigned section
before the Lecture covering the material in it.
Download instructor’s lecture notes if available and bring them to
class.
§
It is almost impossible to succeed in this course
without working a lot of problems. There
is a set of “practice problems” posted for you online, with solutions. These will not be graded, but they are a good
way to get up to speed before doing the online homework and they are a favorite
source of exam questions.
§
Each student must download the homework problem
assignments from the
§
Homework scores count for 8% of your final grade in
the course. Students who do not turn in
the homework are automatically lowering their class average by up to 8%.
§
Homework due dates will be announced by each instructor. They depend on the class schedule but will
generally allow you at least one weekend to complete to complete.
Short Quizzes: Short quizzes covering the preceding week’s
work will usually be given during each lecture and/or recitation. The grades count toward your final course
grade. There will be no makeup quizzes.
Examinations: There will be three Common Exams and a
comprehensive Final Exam during the term.
You will be allowed to use formula sheets and calculators.
The schedule is:
Common QZ 1 Monday, June 5 9:00 am – 11:30 am TIER 106
Common QZ 2 Monday, June
12 9:00 am – 11:30 am TIER 106
Common QZ 3 Monday,
June 19 9:00 am – 11:30 am TIER 106
Final Exam Monday,
June 26 9:00 am – 11:30 am TIER 106
Grading: The final grade
will be based on a composite score that includes each common exam, the final
exam, the lecture quizzes, homework, and your workshop score. The weights we expect to use in calculating
the composite score are:
§
45% for all
three common exams (15% for each)
§
30% for the
final exam
§
15% for the
total homework grade
§
10% for the
total lecture quiz grade

B+: 75

B: 70

F: below

Attendance: Attendance at lectures, recitation classes,
and workshops is mandatory. A total of 3
unexcused absences from lecture, recitation, and workshop in any combination
can result in a student being dropped from the course. Instructors will take attendance
regularly. The Dean of Students will be
notified of excessive absences. Students with several excusable absences should
contact the Dean of Freshman Studies. If
you withdraw from the course, do it officially through the Registrar; do not
simply stop attending and taking exams.
Students who withdraw unofficially force the instructor to assign an
"F" grade for the course.
Study Groups: Students find it helpful to form small,
informal groups that study work on homework together. Talking about the concepts, logic,
problemsolving methods, etc. with others makes it much easier to learn. Collaborative learning works and produces
better grades. Socialization is a bonus
but should not be the main activity.
Honor Code
Violations or Disruptive Behavior:
NJIT policy is zerotolerance for cheating of any kind and for student
behavior that disrupts learning by others.
Incidents will be immediately reported to the Dean of Studies. The penalties for violations range from a
minimum of failure in the course plus disciplinary probation up to expulsion
from NJIT with notations on a students' permanent record. Avoid situations where your own honorable
behavior could be misinterpreted.
Students will be required to agree to the NJIT Honor Code on each exam.
Courtesy: Please do not eat, drink, or create noise
that interferes with the work of students or instructors. Cellular phones, wireless devices, notebook
computers, and messaging devices of all kinds are useless during class meetings
and exams and must be turned off.
