Apr. 30 FINAL EXAM Wednesday 5:00-7:30 pm


Chapter references are to Physics by James S. Walker (Prentice Hall, 2002). The final exam will count as two tests. The graded homework and quizzes will count together as one test. The lowest of all six of these test scores will be dropped. Attendance may affect your final grade. Students are responsible for signing the attendance sheet when it is circulated.  An unexcused absence from an exam or quiz earns a grade of zero.  The Honor Code will be enforced and violations will not be tolerated.
