Weekly homework assignments
Honors conversion:
Students interested in honors conversion should contact the instructor during the first week of classes.
Two midterm exams and midterm projects and a take-home final project

Physics 2200 draws students with very different background in physics, mathematics, and programming. For the purpose of grading what matters in this course is where you, in Week 13, end up relative to yourself in Week 1. Efforts, motivation, and upward trending do not go unnoticed; so does a lack of any efforts and progress.

Final grades will be determined with the help of the following weights.
