- There will be three one hour midterm exams which will be given during the PHY232 section 002 lecture hour from 3:00-3:50pm. See the syllabus or calendar for the dates of the midterm exams. The exams are closed book, but you may use one 8.5x11 inch or smaller sheet of notes and equations (you may use both sides of the sheet).

correction exams as a homework. 30% of the positive difference between the correction exam

- Midterm exam questions will be both numeric and conceptual, e.g. true/false, less than/greater than equal to, ranking, direction of vector, etc. .
- There will be one cumulative 2 hour final exam. The exam is closed book, but you may use four 8.5x11 inch or smaller sheets of notes and equations (you may use both sides of the sheets).

- If you are living or travelling far from the MSU campus at the time of the exam, beyond a reasonable commuting distance, or if you are traveling with an MSU-sponsored program, you may be able to arrange a proctored off-campus exam. Arrangements must be made well in advance of the exam. Requests made after the deadline will not be accommodated and you will have to take the exam on the MSU campus.Click here for deadlines and details for arranging off-campus exams.
