**COURSE OBJECTIVES**

Welcome
to Physics 105 !** Active**
learning is the most important objective of this course. Here are some critical outcomes that are
intended:

§
Improvement of
problem modeling and analysis, and
problem-solving skills.

§
Understanding the basic principles governing
elementary mechanics. Topics include scalar and vector quantities,

1-D
and 2-D motion,

impulse, and momentum.

§
Insight to the scientific process:
modeling observed phenomena and in Physics 105 /106, applying fundamental laws
of mechanics and dynamics to commonly observed phenomena.

** COURSE REQUISITES**

** LABORATORY COURSE:** The associated laboratory course,

** WORKSHOP:** Physics-A Workshop,

**YOU MUST BE REGISTERED FOR ALL
COMPONENTS OF THE COURSE:**

**LECTURE/RECITATION (Phys 105)**

**PHYSICS WORKSHOP (Phys 105W)**

**LABORATORY COURSE (Phys 105A)**

__ATTENDANCE:__

**Attendance at lectures, recitations and
workshops is REQUIRED**.

Attendance
will be taken with the in-class quiz for lectures and with a sign-in sheet for
recitation.

__HOMEWORK:__

Homework
problems will be assigned and graded at the
Homework Service at

Detailed
instructions are attached at end. You
have two weeks to get login and submit first homework. Thereafter, homework will be due weekly. Check UTexas class section after the lecture.

__GRADING__:

Commitment
and preparedness are critical to success in Physics 105.

**DO NOT ALLOW yourself to get into a
situation where you don’t understand the material for more than one week.** If you let
things slip, you will have a lot of trouble catching up.

Attending
the lecture and recitation is not enough.
**Take notes in class and
recitation. Read the relevant sections
in the textbook. DO the homework.** **Class
participation and homework can only help and are part of your grade.**

**YOU NEED A MINIMUM C GRADE in 105 to
pass to 106. This is an NJIT registrar
rule.**

The
final grade in Phys 105 will be composed of the following items:

1)
**Common Exams**:
Three common exams will be given during the semester. The test schedule is
given below. The problems in the Common exams will be a combination of
multiple-choice and workout type problems. (15% each; 45% total)

**Exam
Schedule:**

Common Exam 1 Friday, October
2^{nd} 8:30 –
9:55 am

Common Exam 2: Friday, October
30^{th} 8:30 – 9:55
am

Common Exam 3: Friday, November 20^{th} 8:30
– 9:55 am

2)
**Lecture Quizzes**:
A short lecture quiz will be given during each lecture. (7%)

3) **Homework**: (8%).__ __

4)
**Workshop**: The
Workshop instructor will evaluate student performance at the Workshops and will
report the attendance and the grades to the course instructor weekly. (10%)

5)
**Final Exam**:
A comprehensive test on the semester's work will be given during the Finals
week. (30%)

The following grade scale will be used to
assign percentage of points earned to a letter grade for the course: **NOTE GRADES LESS THAN 50% are FAILING. TOTAL GRADE <55% WILL NOT LET YOU PASS TO
106.**

A 80-100

B+ 75-79

B 70-74

C+ 65-69

C 55-64

D 50-54

F < 50

__RESOURCES:__

**1. Students are encouraged to meet with their
instructor during office hours or by appointment to discuss any difficulty.**

**2. Students are encouraged to ask questions
during lecture and recitation **

**3. The Physics Learning Center located in
401T, is open to all students. Check
with schedule posted outside 401T.**

**4. Use the interactive learning system provided
by the publisher – web site
(http://www.cp7e.com from Thomson Brooks/Cole) instructions are provided with
your textbook.**

__Phys 105
- Policy for Make-up Exams, Quizzes, HW - Fall 2009__

LECTURE QUIZZES:
There is no make-up for the lecture quizzes. Students missing a Lecture
quiz receive a grade of zero for that quiz. The lecture quizzes are intended to
assess the study habits of the students on the new concepts and to help them
stay in step with the flow of the course. Any make-up offer will give an unfair
advantage to those students since it will give them extra time to study.

Homework assignments: must be turned in by the
assigned cutoff date (Typically Mondays at noon). All Homework must be turned
in via the online service. No paper copies will be accepted. No late homework
will be accepted.

Common Exams: The general policy is that students who
miss a common exam will receive a score of zero for that Exam.. That score will
be included in the calculation of your final grade. Students that miss two
common exams automatically fail the course. Students who anticipate an absence
from a common exam should discuss their situation with their instructor PRIOR
TO their absence. In order to be qualified to receive a "make-up"
common exam score __(a very rare occurrence)__, the student should present
documentation for not being able to take the test as scheduled. As is the standard policy of NJIT, this
documentation should be presented to the student’s Physics 105 instructor AND
to the Dean of Students - (973) 596-3466, 2^{nd} floor

In the event that the above qualification is met, a
separate make-up test for the missed common quiz will not be offered. Instead,
the part of the final exam relevant to the contents of the missed test will be
considered for giving a grade for the missed test. The instructor will look at
the final exam questions from those chapters and normalize this portion of the
student’s grade for the missed common quiz.

Final Exam: The standard institution policy applies to
the make-ups for the final exam. In order to get an incomplete (I), the student
should have met all the course requirements with a C average standing for the
completed part of the semester’s work. Any requests for taking the final at a
different time is an anomaly and the student should be sent to the Dean of
Students if he/she has a documented reason.

__Honor Code Violations/Disruptive Behavior:__**
**

NJIT has a zero-tolerance policy regarding cheating of any kind
and disruptive student behavior. Any
incidents will be immediately reported to the Dean of Freshman Studies. In the cases the Honor Code violations are
detected, the punishments range from a minimum of failure in the course plus
disciplinary probation up to expulsion from NJIT with notations on students'
permanent record.

No
eating or drinking is allowed at the lectures, recitations, workshops, and
laboratories.

Cellular
phones must be turned off during the class hours and during exams.
