General Information for James Scholar Credit in Physics 211
In order to obtain James Scholars credit in Physics 211, you must complete the James Scholars homework assignments that are available online. Each problem (three problems per assignment) will be graded out of 10 points each, and you will have to maintain an average of about 8/10 in order to receive credit. The problems are harder than others in 211; we want you to give them your best, however. There will be 5 such assignments, due every 2 or 3 weeks and timed to avoid collisions with hour exams, etc. as best we can. Please note that the grades on these assignments DO NOT affect your overall 211 grade IN ANY WAY.
Each assignment is due by 5pm on the specified due date. Late assignments will receive zero credit. Assignments which do not conform to instructions below will also receive zero credit.
Your solutions for each assignment should be submitted by hardcopy to the Physics 211 James Scholar homework box located on the north side of the 2nd floor of Loomis Lab, next door to room 290Z. (Do not put the assignment in anyone's mail box.) Each problem should be submitted on a separate sheet of paper. Be sure to put your name, netid, the assignment number and the problem number on each submission. Be sure to show a reasonable amount of your work; more is always better than less. If we ask for a numerical answer don't forget the units. The solution will also involve submission of a graph. You may make the graphs with any software you want or submit the graph as hand-drawn. Don't forget to label the axes of the graphs with the variables plotted and include units.
Finally, the administrative part: in order to obtain honors credit for 211,
