Rutgers Physics and Astronomy

Physics 227
Analytical Physics IIA: Electricity & Magnetism
Spring 2018

Lecturer: Prof. Jolie A. Cizewski



Course News:

You are required to attend lecture on Tuesday January 16, 2018

and take the required pre-test.





All of the engineering students are being tested in their core courses at the beginning of the semester and again at the end of the semester. These data will be used to improve your learning experiences in these courses and in your future courses.   Your responses to these tests and surveys will have no bearing on your course grade. Your instructors will not see your scores, and will keep track only whether or not you took the tests.


There are four components to the pre and post test requirements:  two in-class exams and two on-line surveys, with an exam and survey and both at the beginning and at the end of the semester.  If you participate in all 4 components, you will get 100% on 2% of your grade; if you miss any of the 4 components you will get a zero for 2% of your grade.


Pre-test. Will be held in LECTURE on January 16, 2018. 



Pre-on-line survey.  This will be announced once the survey is available, which would also contain a link to opt out of having your data used in the research project.


You are required to take the tests, but have a no-penalty option of having your data withheld from the study if you choose not to participate.  


Thank you for your participation in this research project aimed at improving the experiences in engineering physics courses.  




When you register your Iclicker, use your RUID, not your NETID.

If you have already registered with your NETID, please re-register!




If you are having registration problems and need a special permission number, please submit requests through a form on the website at to http://physics.rutgers.edu/descr/descr-ug-program2.shtml

For other questions, contact the course lecturer Prof. Cizewski (cizewski@physics.rutgers.edu).



In this course you will learn the concepts of Electricity and Magnetism that are the basis of the technology around you. This is a tough, and I hope a rewarding, course. Recommendation: stay on top of what is happening every week of the semester since the material you are expected to master at the beginning is the foundation for the rest of the semester.

Jolie Cizewski.
