## Course Policy:

Moed B + Solution

Moed C + Solution

- Submission of 70% of the home assignments is obligatory. For each missing assignment below 70% one point will be reduced from the final grade. For each extra assignment beyond 85% one point will be added to the final grade.
- Submit your assignments to mailbox #8, building 54 (Physics).
- ie. full assignment submission will add 2 points to the final grade. No submission of assignments will reduce 8 point from your final grade.
- The final grade of the course will be calculated as following: Final exam grade + homework grade (can be negative!)
- Home assignments will be partially checked.
- HW submission will not be accepted beyond deadline. For special cases, such as army reserve service, hospitalization etc. please contact your teaching assistant as soon as possible.
- Students are responsible to check their submissions regularly.

- Formula sheet for the final exam.
- Video Lectures.
- Forum
- The new physics 1-2-3 exercise pool
- Teaching Committee notice
