Physics 208 - Spring 2000

There will be three hour exams scheduled at 8:50 - 9:40 AM on February 18, March 24, and April 28 in 1300 Sterling Hall.

There will be no makeup exams, but in the event of a serious illness or other emergency you should contact Prof. Sprott as soon as possible to explain the circumstances.

You may bring to the exam a pencil, eraser, calculator, and one 8.5 x 11" sheet (crib sheet) on which you may write anything you wish (front and back).

You are to sit in parallel rows with each row separated by one empty seat.

You are expected to remain silent from the beginning of the exam until you exit the room.

Be sure your name and section number are at the top of each sheet of the exam, and be sure your exam has the correct number of pages.

Show all your work in the space immediately below each problem, and place your answer in the box provided on the exam sheet. Be sure to include units wherever necessary and the direction of vectors.

You are to turn your exam in to your TA when you are finished.

You are not allowed to leave during the last 5 minutes of the exam.

You will be instructed to stop work promptly at 9:40 AM, and if you continue writing after being instructed to stop, points will be deducted from your grade.

Partial credit will be awarded wherever possible, but you will not receive full credit unless you show your work when such work is required to determine the answer.

Cheating is an extremely serious matter and will result in removal from the course.
