Final Exam

First page and sample questions: FinalSampleQ.pdf


Homework will be posted each Friday (except the Friday before an exam) and will be due in class the following Friday.

You are strongly encouraged to work with partners on the homework! However, you should make sure that you understand every aspect of every problem, and you should write up and hand in your own solution! Be assured that some of the exam questions will be very similar to previous homework assignments!

Your solution should be legible and include all calculations together with explanations of what you're doing. The TA is not responsible for deciphering unreadable or unintelligible solution sets! You may not get any credit if you just state the final answer.

If the final answer is obviously wrong (e.g., you find that the radius of the sun is 3 cm), comment! Otherwise, you may not get partial credit!
