Honors Physics III: Modern Physics, Fall 2017

Exams

  • The exam location is based on your last name (see below for locations). You must take the exam in the assigned location and sit in the seat where your name is on the exam. Be sure to plan ahead and reserve sufficient time to travel to locations.
  • You must bring your student ID with you to the exam; it will be checked.
  • You are allowed a calculator, but you are not allowed any communication devices (cell phones, laptops, smart watches, etc.)
  • You are allowed to bring a single 8.5"x11" formula sheet to the exam, but it must be hand written (writing on both sides is permissible). Three sheets are allowed for the final exam.
  • Bring your own #2 pencils.

Review sessions for the common exams are held in the workshops the preceding week. Review sessions for the Final Exam will be announced.

Practice tests and solutions are available through the links below. Note that content this semester is different than corresponding exams in previous years; some material may be covered on the other common hour or final exam in previous years. You can prepare best for the actual exams by working on each problem before looking at its solution. This is strongly recommended: it is not uncommon for people to be able to follow a problem and solution, yet be unable to do a similar problem on the exam when they take it. Exam solutions will be available after the exams.


Conflicts and Makeup Exams

If you have a class schedule conflict with the regular exam, send a message to Prof. Chou at least one week prior to the exam and include your official class schedule so that a makeup can be scheduled. If you are sick on the day of the exam, contact Prof. Chou that day. Generally everyone needing to take a conflict or makeup exam is expected to take it at the same time.
