• HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS: Problem sets will be assigned weekly; a list of assignments is included in the lecture schedule. Assignments will not be collected or graded, but will be discussed in the Problem Section meetings on Thursday following their assignment. Solutions will be posted on the Course Website weekly. Students who work the problem sets will frequently find that the weekly quiz problems look vaguely familiar.

READING QUIZZES: There will be 9 reading quizzes, given each Monday at the beginning of lecture. These will test your reading of the material for that week's lectures and will provide us with guidance on subjects for discussion in lecture. Quizzes will typically have two questions in multiple choice format. You will have an opportunity to discuss your answers with your colleagues before quizzes are collected. Each quiz will count 4 points; reading quiz score calculated from the best 8 of 9 quiz scores will comprise 10% of your grade.

PROBLEM SOLVING QUIZZES: A closed-book quiz will be given each week on Friday except Nov 29 (Thanksgiving) and Dec 6 (Last class). The quiz will consist of multiple choice conceptual questions plus a couple of problems. Some questions and problems will likely be similar to homework problems. Quizzes & exams will be closed book and notes. Relevant formulae will be provided.

No make-ups will be given either for Reading (Monday) Quizzes or for Problem (Friday) Quizzes. Your grade will be calculated from the best 8 of 9 Reading Quizzes and best 7 of 8 Problem Quizzes so that one quiz of each type may be missed without penalty.

You will need Scantron forms (#20788-ERI, available at the bookstore) for both Reading and Problem quizzes. At the first Reading quiz, you will be assigned a code number, which you will write on each bluebook and Scantron that you use during the quarter. Scantron forms will not be returned. Recorded grades will be posted by the code number on the bulletin board by WLH 2126 and on the Web ( http://casswww.ucsd.edu/ph1b/grades.html).

FINAL EXAMINATION: There will be a comprehensive final exam on Thursday, December 12, which will comprise 35% of your grade.
