**EXAMS**

- For each exam, each student should bring a
**#2 pencil**,a**calculator**for numerical calculation (Graphing calculators are permitted) and a**picture ID**.

**EXAMS ARE CLOSED BOOK - CLOSED NOTE.**

A FORMULA SHEET. will be provided which contains useful formulas and physical constants.

- If you have a University sanctioned trip or other conflict that makes it
impossible to take an exam, contact your lecture instructor one week before the
exam about taking the exam at a an alternate time during the week of the
exam. Make-ups after the week of the exam will given a penalty unless there are
exceptional circumstances.

- 231
Midterms will have 10 numerical and 10 conceptual (e.g. T/F)
problems. The second and third midterms for 231 will have at least one
problem taken directly from the previous midterms. 231C Midterms have a
few more problems and will also be approximately
50% numerical and 50% conceptual. (See grading
criteria for explanation)

- PHY 231 and 231C will take the same final exam, which will have 16
numerical and 16 conceptual problems. Half the final will be based on
material of last three problem sets, while the other half will be confined to
the first 9 problem sets. There will be no questions on the final related to
the first nine problem sets which are not
*similar** to problems from the midterms posted on LON-CAPA for either the on-line or the lecture sections, or from the old exams from previous courses posted on the course web site. Thus, studying the midterms and the exams from previous courses should be an excellent way to prepare for the "old" material on the final.

- Many of the midterm questions will be
*modified** homework problems.
