FARMINGDALE STATE COLLEGE
Instructor: Dr. L. Makarowitz (Lupton 200A)
Text: "Fundamentals of College Physics" Fifth Edition by Peter J. Nolan (Volumes 1 and 2)
Lab Manual: "Experiments in Physics" Second Edition by Nolan and Bigliani
The prerequisite for this course is PHY 135 or its equivalent. If you have not completed the first semester of College Physics successfully, you should report to the registrar immediately to drop this course.
Your grade in PHY 136 will consist of 75 % from your performance in the theory portion of the course, and 25 % from your performance in the laboratory.
Grades in the theory portion will be based on three large examinations (each worth 20 percent of the theory, with no exams dropped) and a comprehensive final examination (worth 40 percent of the theory). All exams (including the final exam) are traditional problem-solving exams, in which all work must be shown. Students must work independently on examinations, without the use of formula sheets, texts, notes, or other aids (except for a non-programmable calculator). The last day to withdraw without penalty is the date your second examination is returned to you.
Information concerning the laboratory portion of your grade will be provided on a separate sheet. You will receive a single grade for this four credit course.
All mobile phones, pagers, and other such devices must be turned completely off before entering class.
