Course Policy on Grading: Final Exam - cumulative 2 hour exam determines 37.5% of final grade, there will be 6 in-class examinations that determine the remainder (62.5 %) of your grade. Students are responsible for all homework exercises and problems, at the end of each chapter, whose solutions are given in the student's solution manual. The exams are based on homework problems.  Exams are closed book,  calculators are not allowed, the lowest in-class exam grade will be dropped, there will be  no make-up exams.  To get credit for an exam the student must (a) take the exam at scheduled time, (b) pick up the graded exam from the instructor within 2 weeks.  Students are responsible for exam dates which will be posted at  http://www.physics.unlv.edu/~bernard/phy180_01/outline3.htm  and announced in class.
