We will study the techniques and methods that make science unique, as illustrated by physics. Emphasis is placed on basic physics principles and their relevance to everyday activities; building an appreciation of how science - particularly physics - is a part of our lives; applications of the techniques of science to everyday activities; and discovering the fun and enjoyment that comes from doing and understanding science. Students are introduced to some basic physics through lecture, discussion, and limited demonstrations. Considerable time is spent on learning the language of physics. Students demonstrate their understanding through precise communication during class discussion and written examination. Course Syllabus:  Course Syllabus Requirements: Included are attendance, participation in activities, homework, laboratory exercises, quizzes, a midterm exam, and a final exam. Attendance and Participation: Students have freely chosen this course and should be in attendance. Students will not be graded explicitly on attendance and participation, but students whose attendance is 90% or more will be allowed one excused lab absence with full credit. Students are here to learn; persons engaging in disruptive behavior in class will be asked to leave and may be subject to other penalties if the behavior continues. Homework: Homework will include reading the text ahead of time (see schedule below), and completing the questions and problems at the end of each chapter; selected questions and the odd-numbered problems will normally be discussed in class. Occasionally some or all of the following will be assigned: topics for discussion, problems from other sources, and take home experiments. Homework will normally not be graded. Lab Reports: Students will be divided into lab groups of 3-6 persons. Unless otherwise noted by the instructor, each group is to complete a lab report signed by each member of the group at the end of each laboratory session. The lab grade is normally a "participation grade," and for this reason each report must be reviewed by the instructor prior to submission, to ensure that the laboratory exercise has been completed correctly. Course Syllabus:  Course Syllabus Quizzes: A 50 min chapter quiz is given at the end of each chapter unless otherwise noted by the instructor. Absences result in a ZERO unless previous arrangements are made with instructor, or in the case of a "dire emergency" (as determined by the instructor). Students are permitted to bring a copy of the "Summary of Important Equations" provided in the lecture notes, and a copy of the "Table of Conversion Factors" inside the back cover of the text. The third quiz will be a Midterm Exam covering chapters 1-3. In calculating the student's final grade, the Midterm grade will replace the grade on either or both of the first two chapter quizzes if the midterm grade is higher than either or both of those quiz grades Final Exam: A comprehensive Final Exam is given at the end of the semester, covering all material (except parts of chapters 1-3). Students are responsible for knowing the time and date of exam, which will be according to the exam schedule published by NKU; absences will result in a ZERO (except in the case of a "dire emergency," as determined by the instructor). Students may bring the same materials allowed for quizzes to the Final Exam. In calculating the student's final grade, the Final Exam grade will replace the grade on any or all of the chapter quizzes taken since the midterm if the Final Exam grade is higher than any or all of those quiz grades. At the discretion of the instructor, quizzes, the Midterm Exam, and/or the Final Exam may be required to be taken on line in lieu of homework assignments. Make-Ups: Any requests for make-up quizzes and/or exams will be considered only if given to instructor in writing at least one lecture period beforehand. Since there are two lab sections, labs may be made up only by coming to the other session (with the knowledge and consent of the instructor); nevertheless, an excused absence will not be counted in calculating the student's lab grade. Course Syllabus:  Course Syllabus Grades: Each student's performance is evaluated according to the following weights. Chapter Quizzes, 28% Midterm Exam, 27% Final Exam, 35% Laboratory Reports, 10% Grading scale: 100 - A - 90 - B - 80 - C - 70 - D - 60 - F - 0 Grades may be "curved" at the instructor's discretion. Students will be given the opportunity to do extra credit projects at the discretion of the instructor; these projects may add a maximum of 5 points to the student grade calculated as noted above from quizzes, lab reports, and exam. Attendance and overall class performance may be taken into account in assigning final grades for "borderline" students. All quizzes and exams will be timed. If a student exceeds the time limit by more than 59 seconds, one point will be deducted from the test grade for every full overtime minute. If some quizzes and/or exams are proctored and other quizzes and/or exams are taken without supervision, and if the student's grades on the unsupervised quizzes and/or exams is significantly higher than his/her grades on the proctored quizzes and/or exams, the instructor reserves the right to calculate the student's final grade based only on the proctored quizzes and/or exams, using the methodology outlined above, but replacing unsupervised quiz grades before the Midterm with the grade on the proctored Midterm, and replacing unsupervised quiz grades after the Midterm with the grade on the proctored Final. Course Syllabus:  Course Syllabus Mid-Term Grades Mid-term grades will be issued ONLY to students who have successfully completed FEWER than 30 semester hours (those designated FR1 or FR2 on class rosters). Students will be able to access mid-term grades through Norse Express for Students as soon as faculty submit grades (see the Published Schedule of Classes). Students who receive a "D" or "F" mid-term grade will receive a warning letter from the Provost. Mid-term grades are NOT a part of students' permanent records; they will be replaced by final class grades when these are submitted. Mid-term grades do NOT guarantee a good or bad class grade; they reflect a current level of performance that can be altered by the quality of subsequent work. Students are responsible to know the last day to drop this course with a grade of "W" Course Syllabus:  Course Syllabus Readings: The material covered by this course is outlined by the weekly readings assigned below. Students are responsible for reading this material before it is covered in the lectures. (NOTE: every week in the Summer Session is approximately equivalent to 3 weeks in the schedule below.) Weeks 1-2, Chapter 1, Motion Weeks 3-4, Chapter 2, Newton's Laws Weeks 5-6, Chapter 3, Energy and Conservation Laws Weeks 7-8, Chapter 4, Physics of Matter Weeks 8-9, Chapter 5, Temperature and Heat Weeks 9-10, Chapter 6, Waves, Sound, and Ultrasound (Sec 6.1-6.3) Week 11, Chapter 7, Electricity (Except Static Electricity) Week 12, Chapter 8, Electromagnetism and EM Waves (Sec 8.1-8.3, 8.5) Week 13, Chapter 10, Atomic Physics (Sections 10.1-10.2, 10.4-10.6) Week 14, Chapter 11, Nuclear Physics (Sections 11.1-11.4) and Radiological Physics Week 15, Chapter 12 Special Relativity (Section 12.1) and Cosmology Depending on the field of concentration of the majority of the class, Chapter 9 (Light, Sections 9.1-9.3 & 9.7) may be substituted for one of the above topics. Course Syllabus:  Course Syllabus Changes on this syllabus will be made at the discretion of the instructor, depending on interest and/or class progress and/or other factors. Any modifications to this syllabus during the semester will be announced in class in advance of the effective date(s). Students are responsible for reading and understanding all items on this syllabus. Any items not understood must be brought to the attention of the instructor within the first two weeks of class. Honor Code: The work in this course is subject to the Student Honor Code. The Honor Code is a commitment to the highest degree of ethical integrity in academic conduct, a commitment that, individually and collectively, the students of Northern Kentucky University will not lie, cheat, or plagiarize to gain an academic advantage over fellow students or avoid academic requirements. Students with Disabilities: This class seeks to comply with NKU's policies in regard to Students with Disabilities, as stated in NKU's Disability Services Website Extra Credit Work:  Extra Credit Work This class tries to emphasize that physics helps us understand the world around us Hence the typical extra credit project is to find an application of something learned in this course to everyday life – personal or work experiences, newspaper or magazine articles, etc – and write briefly about the physics principle and its application. Other projects may be done with instructor approval. Grades will be based on the scope of the work, and how well the student seems to understand it. Multiple projects may be done, and up to 5 points – cumulative – can be added to the final grade.
