The Work

James Scholar Supplemental Homework Assignments

Turn in homework to the Physics 211-212 James Scholar homework box on the second floor of Loomis, on the north side of the building. The homework box is bright yellow and has a black-and-white label which reads "212/211 JAMES SCHOLAR".

Each assignment is due by 5 p.m. on the specified due date. Late assignments will receive zero credit.

Assignments which do not conform to instructions below will also receive zero credit.

Each page of your submission must contain:

The problems are harder than the others in 211; however,  we want you to give them your best!

Each problem (three problems per assignment) will be graded out of 10 points.   You must maintain an average of about 8/10 in order to receive credit.

There will be 5 assignments, due every 2 or 3 weeks, and timed to avoid scheduling conflicts with hour exams.

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 might 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.



If you are already a James Scholar, you should complete an Honors Credit Learning Agreement form, get it signed, and submit it to your college office.

College of Engineering: You must use the James Scholar portfolio tool:

College of LAS:  the whole process can be done online using an EHCLA (electronic HCLA).

How do I get the form signed?

College of Engineering: Your instructor will be notified through the portfolio tool.

College of LAS: Your electronic eHCLA will be sent by email to the course instructor, which should be your lecturer. They provide a virtual signature by simply replying to the email.
