There are two exams in this course. The midterm exam covers the first half of the material. The final exam covers all of the course material. The exams include both conceptual questions and physical problems. Exams are machine graded and will consist of true-false (not always included) and multiple-choice questions scored as follows:

- True-False (2 points each, no partial credit)
- Three-Choice Multiple Choice (3 points each, no partial credit)
- Five-Choice Multiple Choice (6 points each, partial credit option)

On five-choice multiple choice questions (only) there is a partial credit option. Namely, if the student is unable to do the calculation which will result in the correct answer, the student may elect to accept partial credit for successfully eliminating unphysical answers. In particular, if the student can identify three of the five answers as being wrong (i.e. the student marks two answers, one of which is the correct answer to the question), then the student will receive 3 points for the question (full credit for choosing only the correct answer is 6 points). Similarly, if the student can identify two of the five answers as being wrong (i.e. the student marks three answers, one of which is the correct answer to the question), then the student will receive 2 points for the question.
