Class Information

Recent announcements:

  • 10/21 I'm playing with moodle, and I definitely don't quite have their weighting system figured out. Please don't take the weights seriously yet. The weighting given on the syllabus is correct! All the numbers for an item grade should be correct. For example, your scores for Exam 1 raw and curved should be correct--but the way moodle is using them to calculate your total grade may not yet be correct.
  • We will meet in Gal 110 starting 9/4 and for rest of the semester.
  • The textbook will be: Introduction to Electrodynamics, by David Griffiths, 4th ed. Here's the Amazon link.
