Course Description

Physics 1200 is the second semester of a two-semester introductory sequence.

Topics include electric and magnetic forces and fields, Gausss Law, DC and AC

circuits, Amperes Law and Faradays Law, mechanical oscillations and waves

leading into electromagnetic radiation, physical optics, and quantum physics.

Course Text(s)

Fundamentals of Physics 9th or 10th edition (extended) by Halliday, Resnick &

Walker (published by Wiley) with on-line MasteringPhysics for Homework

(problems from Physics for Scientists and Engineers 3rd ed by Knight, published

by Pearson. (Same as PHYS 1100 last semester.) You need not buy the Knight

book for all problems will be accessible on-line.

Subject Matter: This course will complete the study of introductory physics that

was begun in Physics I with classical mechanics. In general, Physics II will

address electricity and magnetism, and conclude with an introduction to quantum

physics.

Course Format: The course consists of four regular class meetings per week--two lectures and two laboratory sessions. The lectures will meet on M&Th or

T&F, as scheduled. Labs will meet twice a week for 110 minutes on the same day

as your lecture.

Classwork: You will be assigned homework to be done prior to attending lecture

and lab. Some of the homework will be on material to be covered in lecture and

lab, so you will not have heard of it in class yet. This exposure is planned and will

allow you to understand the lecture and the labs more effectively. Therefore you

will need to read the book where appropriate to understand those homework

questions.

Course Content

At the end of this course, a student should understand basic concepts of

electromagnetism and quantum physics and be able to solve problems at a level

consistent with any introductory Physics text. Students should be able to set up

and solve problems using calculus at the level of a first year course in calculus.

Mastery will be developed through classroom lectures and laboratory activities as

well as through required homework assignments. Mastery of the material will be

tested through homework, classroom labs, quizzes, three unit exams, and a

comprehensive final.

Syllabus

Syllabus

4 of 11

srd9/01/15

All of your grades are kept or administered by your laboratory professor --- not

necessarily the professor you have for lectures.

Important: Graded material will be assigned and collected, and will count

toward your final grade. Grades count toward your final grade with two (2)

of the lowest Labs and quiz grades being dropped to accommodate excused

absenses. No Exam will be dropped.

--- Written laboratory reports in the form of sheets torn from your lab

manual are due at the end of your lab section. If you do not finish, hand in

what you have but apply greater preparation and diligence toward handing

in your lab within the two-hour time frame. Working under a deadline is

good practice for the real world.

--- Take Home Lab Problems. Thirteen (13) of these are designed to allow

you more time to work on these examples so that you learn the material

better without so much time pressure in the two-hour lab. If you can do

these in the 2-hour lab time, you will have help available right there and can

turn them in with your regular lab papers. If you do not have time, do these

at home and turn them in at the next lab class.

--- On-line homework is due by 7:30 am on the day of your lecture

--- Quizzes are given in each lecture class, promptly at the start. If you are

late, you miss that quiz and a grade of zero is recorded.

There is no make-up of labs, missed quizzes or on-line homework. Those

grades are recorded as zeros. Everyone is allowed to drop their lowest of two

Labs and two lecture quizzes. This is designed to accommodate excused

absences. All other absences beyond two require you to choose which you

will miss and which you will receive a zero for. It is YOUR responsibility to

learn the material from whichever lab you choose to drop. Those who miss no

quizzes or labs will have their lowest two grades dropped. Likewise if you

miss only one --- that counts as a zero and can be dropped if it is your lowest.

Lecture Quizzes

You cannot make up a missed lecture quiz. If you miss a quiz that grade is

recorded as a zero. Everyone is allowed to drop their lowest of two quiz grades.

This is designed to accommodate for absences.

Homework

If you are going to miss a class, do the homework ahead of time. You will not be

allowed to drop a HW grade or submit HW later than the day and time it is due.

Laboratories

If you are going to miss a lab due to an excused event such as a circumstance

allowed by the Dean of Students or an Athletic Coach, please inform your section

professor.

---If that particular lab which you must miss does not require the use of

equipment, what we call pencil and paper labs, you can be allowed to do the

write-up on your own and submit it at the next lab class, along with your written

excuse, for credit.

---If the particular lab you need to miss requires the use of equipment, you will be

offered the option to sit-in at another lab section and do the work there, with your

paper handed in at YOUR next lab section. (Not the section you sat-in on).

-- If you cannot accommodate an alternate lab section, the lab will be recorded as

a zero and can be one of the two lab grades which everyone is allowed to drop. It

is your responsibility to learn the material from the lab grade which you choose to

drop.

-- Everyone will have their two lowest lab grades dropped, be they zeroes from

absences or otherwise low grades.

You will be allowed to bring to each exam:

--writing instruments,

--a basic scientific calculator (without a full keyboard), and

--one 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper containing constants, formulas, and any other

information that you might find useful. Both sides of the page may be

used

as well as any size font (printed or handwritten).

The use of any electronic communication or data storage devices is forbidden and

will result in a grade of F for the course. You are not allowed to use earphones to

listen to music or other forms of audio.

A grade of zero will be recorded for any major exam that is missed for any reason.

If you have a conflict with an examination time for a legitimate and documented

reason, you may take that exam during a conflict time. Contact your section

professor in the week prior to the exam to find out if your reason is valid and to

make arrangements to attend the conflict exam. The conflict test hour will usually

be provided at 5 pm the day before the regular test. Students must request

permission from their section instructor by 5 pm Friday of the week before the

test to take the conflict test. Students who have a double conflict (regular exam

and conflict exam) must make arrangements at least two days prior to the regular

exam.

Students with approved special needs (large print, extra time, quiet room,

computer...) should contact their section instructor in the week before the exam.

FINAL EXAMINATION: The Final Exam is mandatory for everyone.

The final examination will be given on the date scheduled by the registrar during

the period provided. Do not plan to leave campus before you know when our final

is as we are allowed no flexibility to offer the exam on other dates.

There is no conflict exam possible for the Final Exam unless it conflicts with

another scheduled Final Exam.

Again, no special arrangements will be made for students who cannot take the

final at the scheduled time unless there is a conflict with another scheduled exam.

There are Institute rules for how that works.

As with the other exams, you will be allowed to bring to the final examination

only one 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper containing constants, formulas, and any other

information that you might find useful. Both sides of the sheet may be used.

HOMEWORK:

The philosophy of this course is that you learn best through your own study and

practice, not by passively listening to lecture. We will try to focus and clarify

your learning through assignments, labs, lectures, and exams but it is your job to

learn. On-line homework uses the MasteringPhysics system as you did last

semester. We strongly encourage you to do homework yourself and make sure

you understand it. Copying may increase your homework grade (only 6% of total

grade) but statistically it has been proven to significantly lower your exam grade,

usually by at least one standard deviation --- at least one letter grade.

Online homework counts for 3% of your total grade. Each graded homework

question or problem counts for 1 point in your homework total. There will be

about 150 total points. (Some problems and tutorials may be long or difficult

they count the same as short or easy questions.) Detailed policy is given on the

Mastering Physics site for this course. The following is a summary. You will

have 6 attempts at each question, but a small amount (3%) of the points for a

numerical question and a substantial fraction (>20%) for a multiple choice

question is deducted for each incorrect answer. Many problems have hints that

you can access. Accessing a hint on a problem reduces the possible points for that

Syllabus

7 of 11

that is more than about 12 hours late will receive a maximum of 25% of the

credit. We encourage you to complete the homework not only for the points but

for the learning experience. Some problems in the homework are listed as

Practice. Practice problems do not count toward your homework total.

Your online homework grade will be 3% times MAX(1, (1.1*(Your pts/Possible

pts)). The adjustment by *1.1 accommodates issues you may encounter with

automated grading and allows you access hints and to have a few incorrect

numerical answers without penalty. We expect this will be the only adjustment we

will make for any issues with the homework system. We still want to know about

problems with the system, so report problems to Mastering Physics within the

site and a copy comes to us, but individual grade adjustments will not be made

In addition to online homework, there will be thirteen (13) written lab take-home

problems throughout the semester. These are designed to allow you more time to

think through and understand the material without the pressures of a 2-hour lab

class. If you finish lab early and can work through the take-home portion in clas,

you should do so because in class you have lots of help. Otherwise, do it at home

and turn it in at your next lab class. These take-home problems will be worth a

total of 3% of your grade.

LECTURE ATTENDANCE:

Lecture attendance is not required, but 4% of your grade is associated with work

that is completed in lecture in form of a quiz to be given each lecture at a time to

be announced by your lecture instructor. Lecture quizzes cannot be made up due

to absences of any kind, excused or not. If you are absent, a grade of zero is

recorded for that quiz or worksheet. You will be allowed to drop the two lowest of

your quiz grades, if they be zeroes of otherwise.

LABORATORY ATTENDANCE:

Laboratory is where most of your learning will take place. This is your

opportunity to discuss with your fellow students and ask questions of the

instructors. Laboratory experiments and related activities form 20% of your grade.

If you have a legitimate excused absence from the Dean of Students or from an

athletic coach due to a sporting event, you will be allowed to make up a missed

laboratory assignment. See your professor beforehand so he is aware of your

circumstances.

---If that particular lab you must miss requires the use of equipment, you will be

offered the option to sit-in at another lab section and do the work there, with your

paper handed in at YOUR next lab section.

-- If you cannot accommodate an alternate lab section, that will be one of the two

lab grades which you are allowed to drop. It is your responsibility to learn the

material from the lab grade which you choose to drop.

Syllabus

8 of 11

srd9/01/15

-- Any lab missed receives a grade of zero but everyone will have their two lowest

lab grades dropped.

To receive credit for the lab classes you must attend the class you are registered

for and you must actively participate in the laboratory activity. You will not be

allowed to arrive later than other members of your group and copy their work.

That is plagiarism and will be dealt with accordingly. You must also hand in an

individual completed laboratory report every class which will be graded on a scale

of 0 to 10.

Written reports are due at the end of the lab session in which the lab exercise is

performed. They cannot be taken home, finished later and then turned in for

credit. Only the Take Home portion of the lab may be turned in at the next

class.

Academic Integrity

Student-teacher relationships are built on trust. For example, students must trust

that teachers have made appropriate decisions about the structure and content of

the courses they teach, and teachers must trust that the assignments that students

turn in are their own. Acts, which violate this trust, undermine the educational

process. The Rensselaer Handbook of Student Rights and Responsibilities define

various forms of Academic Dishonesty and you should make yourself familiar

with these. In this class, all assignments that are turned in for a grade must

represent the students own work. In cases where help was received, or teamwork

was allowed, a notation on the assignment should indicate your collaboration.

Students taking courses at Rensselaer have a right to expect that their work will be

evaluated fairly with respect to other students. They have a right to expect that

other students will not attempt to enhance their own grades or the grades of their

friends by cheating. Professors have a right to expect that their students are

honest and submit work reflecting their own efforts. In an atmosphere of

academic integrity, students and professors are on the same team trying to achieve

the same learning objectives. If you attempt to cheat, you are placing yourself in a

position where you are at odds with your professors and the vast majority of your

fellow students. Academic dishonesty is a serious offense and we will treat it

accordingly.

Students are expected to actively participate in a collaborative group when

working on the in-class activity. However, each student must turn in her/his own

activity write-up. No student will be allowed to submit an activity in the name of

any other student. The same policy applies to homework and quizzes. If you are

caught copying or handing in work that is not your own, you will receive a nondroppable zero for that assignment and will be warned that this is not acceptable

behavior. If this occurs a second time, you will receive an F for the course and a

letter will be sent to the Dean of Students.

Syllabus

9 of 11

srd9/01/15

Discussing homework problems and getting help with them before class is

permitted and strongly encouraged. Most learning is done through discussion

with your peers and instructors.

Collaboration (giving or taking information) or copying of any sort or using any

aid that is not allowed during an exam or quiz is cheating. Altering a returned

exam and asking for a re-grade is cheating. If you are found cheating on any

exam, you will receive an F for the course. A written report of your dishonesty

will be sent to the dean of Students and attached to your transcript. You cannot

change a course grade of F for cheating by retaking the course. Such a grade is

permanent.

If you get creative and think of a new way to cheat that is not specifically

mentioned above, it is still cheating and will be punished. If you are that creative,

put your talents to better use.

any other aspect of the course, it is in your best interests to inform

the professor in charge of the lab section or the course so that

appropriate action may be taken. The reputation of Rensselaer as

a premiere institute of research and learning rests on the integrity

of its students, faculty and staff. If cheating proliferates, the

reputation of the Institute suffers, as does the value of your

education and diploma in the job market and in the world.

If you have any question concerning this policy before submitting an assignment,

please ask for clarification.

Course Information: Course information and a PowerPoint version of the lecture

notes are available at the LMS (WebCT) site for this course. We have posted

videos of Prof Persans (Spring 2013 and Fall 2014) lectures to allow you to

review lectures. Class-wide announcements are also posted at that location, so

check in daily. Information that must be disseminated rapidly, such as class or

exam cancellations, will also be sent out on the Physics 1200 Twitter feed:

http://twitter.com/persap.

Extra Help: All instructors and graduate teaching assistants are available during

laboratory class and in office hours for students who need help outside the

classroom. Supplemental (ALAC) tutors and mentors will also be available to

help you with this course. A list of the office hours for all the instructors and

tutors in the course will be published and updated on the Physics II homepage

(RPI LMS) as soon as the information is available. Office and office hours

information can also be found in the Physics Office (JROWL 1C25) and posted

outside the classrooms. Students may go to any instructor listed, not just their

section professor or section TA.
