TABLE I: Overview of the PHY 122 Course for Summer 2005
Course webpage - http://www.astro.sunysb.edu/iyers/home/Phy122.html
Course information is also located on BLACKBOARD learning systems. I will post announcements and
updates, get familiar with it. I will have the same information on the webpage too.
Homework is through CAPA. Please do not lose your PIN number for the HWs. They are on the top
of each HW Question sheet, there are 11 of them. Homeworks are worth 10% of the total grade.
Every week you have two labs and one recitation, each for 2 hrs. For schedules and room numbers see the course
webpage or BLACKBOARD. Labs are compulsary and are worth 20% of the total grade. If you fail the lab you
fail the course.
There two midterms (22nd July /8th August) and one nal exam (19th August). Midterms are worth 15% of
the total grade and nals are worth 40%. Academic honesty is expected from each one of you during the exams
and homeworks.
Help hours are scheduled for the students, therefore make the best use of it. For times and location see the
course webpage.
Due to high volume of students there are recitation sections scheduled to help students with solving problems
and getting practice. For times and location see the course webpage.
