exam 1

Submitted by William A. Loinaz on Sunday, 3/25/2012, at 4:36 PM

Your exam 1 is graded and available to pick up from the bench outside my office (223 Merrill).  The high score for the exam was 93.5, the median was 62 (histogram attached below, if you really care about the distribution).  This is lower overall than I'd like.  As a remedy, I'll offer the following option:  you can rewrite those exam problems you lost points on as a homework to back up to half of the points you lost.  The rewrite will be due two weeks from monday (4/9/12).  You'll rewrite the problems you want me to reconsider on a separate paper, but you'll also return your original exam with the rewritten problems when you turn them in.  I'll offer more details in class on Monday.

You can pick up your written problem set #4 from the bench outside my office.  You should be able to see all of your written homework grades to date by looking at the gradebook for this course.  Please let me know if you can't access it.  I have not integrated the grades from mastering physics or the PRS transmitters.  I won't do that until the end of the semester.
