Physics 2200 draws quite the spectrum of students with different background in physics, mathematics, and programming. What ultimately matters in this course is not so much where you end up relative to your classmates but where you, in Week 13, end up relative to yourself in Week 1. Each student’s final grade is individually determined at the semester’s end after input from the teaching assistant. Efforts and upward trending do not go unnoticed.
