                       Course Structure
We will consider the material in Chapters 1-12 and 14 of the text.  The reading
schedule, homework assignments, and exams are announced in the schedule below.

I will post solutions to the homework problems, as they are due, in a glass case on the
first floor of Thornton Hall. Hints are given for one problem from each assignment
(denoted on the schedule by an asterisk) at the web site listed above.
	You will receive a completely separate grade for laboratory work.  However
concurrent registration or previous passing of the laboratory is required for registration
in PHYS 220.  Furthermore, to receive a grade in the lab you must remain in PHYS
220 at least through the second midterm exam.  Please be sure to attend a lab section
during the first week of class to take the preliminary exam.  You are required to have a
current score on the exam for registration in the course.  The results will be used to
advise whether you should take PHYS 140 before attempting this class.
	The labs will meet beginning Wednesday, Sept. 3.  Please purchase a bound,
quadrille-ruled notebook before coming to the first laboratory session. (Note: spiral
bound notebooks are not acceptable.) Enrollment in laboratory will be handled by Dr.
Burke.  If you desire a change in lab section, be sure to say so on the Day 1 Notesheet.
Enrollment in the lab is necessary for enrollment in the lecture.  COMPLETION of the
lab is necessary for completion of the course.  Unfortunately, no credit can be given for
lab work done elsewhere.
	Prerequisites for the class are high school physics or equivalent and completion of
MATH 220 with a grade of C or better.  Co-requisite is registration in MATH 221 and
PHYS 222.  Please, by Friday, Sept 5, submit documentary evidence that you meet
these requirements.
	If fifteen or more persons show desire, by registering and paying fees at the
Physics and Astronomy Department Office,  an additional section of PHYS 222 lab will
be offered meeting Fridays from 3:10 to 5:55. The cost is $175.

                           Grading
	The four portions of the course, class participation, homework, hour tests, and
the final Exam, will each count for 25% of course credit.
	To receive a passing grade in this class, you must complete or have completed
PHYS 222, must attempt ALL of the assigned homework problems and receive a
minimum of 25% of homework credit, and must pass the final exam (25% or more of
possible credit on the exam.)

                          NOTE:
	On the homework, you are encouraged to form a study group and share ideas, so
long as you write out your own solutions.  Also please feel free to get help at my office
hours.  Each laboratory instructor will also have an office hour and a help session.  We
will try to give you all help short of writing out the solution for you.  It would be good
to ensure that at least one person in your study group can attend one of these discussion
opportunities.  I'm serious; you've got to do the homework.  Plan for whatever it takes.

Minimum* overall scores for each grade:
		A	85%	C	45%
		A-	80%	C-	40%
		B+	75%	D+	35%
		B	65%	D	30%
		B-	60%	D-	25%
		C+	55%

* I will raise your grade up to 2/3 grade if your work improves with time.  That is, I
will separately compute grades for the work through the first midterm, that after the
first midterm through the second, and and that including the second midterm through
the final exam.  If the trend is continually upward, I will increase your grade to
approximate the average of the last two scores.  In no case will your grade be lowered.
