Other Information about the Course
This is a continuation of Physics I. Topics include electricity, magnetism, electromagnetic waves, geometrical and physical optics. Elements of modern physics are integrated into the curriculum. This course is structured in an asynchronous, flexible style. You will be given a window of time to complete graded work but you must adhere to the due dates for credit. Please make sure you adhere to these assignment and assessment deadlines. Although you will not be required to log into the course space at any particular time of the day, I log into the course space several times a day; and I am available for questions and concerns on a regular basis, every day. I participate in the discussion forum regularly to guide and correct if necessary, AFTER ample time has been given for you to answer forum questions or to respond to comments from fellow classmates. If you have urgent or private questions or problems, please email me and I will respond promptly. Quizzes and exams are online. They are graded automatically and your grade will appear in the grade book, AFTER the quiz or exam period has ended. Quizzes are not proctored, but you must complete them individually.
EXAMS ARE PROCTORED AND ARE GIVEN IN THE TESTING CENTER. Partial credit may be given for exam questions after I receive your work completed from the Testing Center.
If you are in a remote location and need a proctor you must fill in a remote proctor form. Proctoring should be from a Testing Center that does proctoring. NO LIBRARIES WILL BE ACCEPTED. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT THE PROPOSED PROCTOR.
