Course Policy: Download policy in .html format

  • The final grade is 100% exam grade
  • 80 % of homework submission (by deadline) is obligatory. The submission deadline is 23:00 at the deadline day
  • If you dont submit your obligatory amount of homework, your final grade will be decreased by 3 points for every exercise
  • The final test will consist 5 question, from which you should answer 4. (See tests from previous years).
  • The only support material allowed in the test is the equation sheets. No calculators are allowed in the test.

General Links
  • Link to the course Forum. Please use it to ask exercises related question or any other question which is not personal.
  • For more extended material you can read the lecture notes from "Physics3 for Physicists".
  • For current Physiscs research you are welcome to visit Prof. Folman website
Extra Staff Related to the Course Material
  • Great video by 3Blue1Brown explaining Taylor Series
  • Double-Pendulum simulator
  • A video demonstrating coupled pendulums modes and beats
  • A simulation demonstrating waves on a string
  • A simulation demonstrating gaussian wave-packet
  • Great (as always) video by 3Blue1Brown explaining Fourier transform
Good Luck !!
