Exams: Each midterm exam will consist of 15 multiple choice questions on the material related to the indicated chapters. The final exam will consist of 30 multiple-choice questions. There is no penalty for a wrong answer. It is therefore important that you give an answer to every question even if you have to make an educated guess. A formula sheet will be provided for each exam. The formula sheet may be posted on the web for consultation. If you need help consult your TA, the course administrator, or the Lecturer. Bring a scientific calculator to each exam, and make sure that any needed battery is fresh.Academic Integrity While you are encouraged to form collaborative learning and study groups with fellow students in this class, you are always expected to hand in your own work in this course. Responses to online assignments and exam questions must be exclusively your own work. In addition, sharing private course material (such as lecture slides, videos, assignments, etc.) on social media websites such as Facebook, etc. is considered a violation of academic integrity, as defined by the Rutgers Office of Student Conduct. Any violations of these rules will be personally dealt with by the Professor and may lead to University disciplinary action. It is in the best interest of the students and the morale of the class to follow these rules and not to tolerate any departure from them by others. Any instances of academic dishonesty that takes place in this course must be reported to the Professor immediately. HOW TO PREPARE FOR THIS CLASS
