PHYS 1020

General Physics 1

University of Manitoba

(Lab Required) It's a crazy world; come and find out why objects fall, slide, bounce, stick, go in circles or stay straight, float or sink, glide or crash. Why don't satellites fall to the ground? What exactly does weightlessness mean anyway? Find answers to these and other questions as you get to know Newton's and other basic laws of nature and see what makes the world go round. This course, together with the sequel PHYS 1030, is recommended for students seeking either a single, comprehensive course in Physics or entry into health science programs. It may also be used for entry into the Honours Physics program ("B+" or better) or the Major Physics program ("B" or better). May not be held with PHYS 1021, PHYS 1050, PHYS 1051, PHYS 1410, PHYS 1420.

NOTE: Students having previously taken PHYS 1020 MAY APPLY for an exemption from the laboratory
component of the course in 2018-19, provided that their performance in the laboratory exceeded a
minimum standard of 80%. To apply for an exemption, students MUST contact the Physics office (301
Allen Bldg.) in person on or before September 21, 2018, and have normally completed the laboratories
within the last two years. Students who receive an exemption will have their previous laboratory mark
credited directly towards the 2018 mark for PHYS 1020, as outlined above.
* Students who obtain a lab exemption are still required to write the tutorial tests in the timetabled slot. See
the attached schedule for dates of tutorial tests. The tutorial tests are conducted in the laboratory sessions
and are an important component of the course mark (see above).
** Different laboratory sections receive different versions of the tutorial tests. Although the instructors
attempt to set all versions of the test at the same level of difficulty, there inevitably remain some differences.
The marks for the tutorial tests may therefore be adjusted slightly so the average marks for each lab section
are not significantly different.
*** 6% of the final grade will be awarded for homework problems, using the WileyPLUS online learning and
evaluation system. WileyPLUS is designed to provide helpful feedback to students on problem-solving and to
provide hints to guide them to the correct answer. Problem assignments will be due each week. Details will
be announced in class and on the course web site.
**** Learning requires active participation! iClickers will be used to help students assimilate the basic
concepts and ideas as soon as they are introduced in the lectures.
Letter grades will be assigned based on the distribution of marks in the course, with the C/C+ boundary near the
mean, and grade divisions based on the standard deviation, with A+ corresponding to 2 standard deviations above
the mean. Boundaries will not normally be higher than 90 (A+), 80 (A), 75 (B+), 70 (B), 65 (C+), 60 (C), 50 (D).
A sufficient percentage of the total mark including the marks for at least 3 lab reports, 2 tutorial tests, and the
midterm test will be provided to the students before the Voluntary Withdrawal deadline. The final grades will be
submitted to Aurora by the grade submission deadline and available on that website.
POLICY ON MISSED TESTS/TUTORIALS
If you miss the mid-term test for a legitimate, documented reason, then you will have the option to write a deferred
midterm, or to have the weight of the final increased to 60 %. If you cannot attend a tutorial due to illness or some
other legitimate reason, then you may be given permission to write the test in a different section during the same
week, or if you cannot attend any of the tests, to have it waived, in which case the tutorial mark will be based on the
remaining tests. Missed tests for any other reason count as zero!
!
POLICY ON LABORATORY ATTENDANCE AND SUBMISSION OF LAB REPORTS
Attendance at all laboratory sessions is mandatory. In order to receive any credit for the laboratory component all
students are required to complete at least four out of the five experiments scheduled in the laboratory sessions,
however, ALL five experiments count towards your final lab mark. Credit for a completed lab requires that a lab
report and data be submitted to UM Learn. Laboratory reports must be submitted by the end of the lab period.
LABORATORY QUIZZES
Before the first experiment, students must read the Introduction to the Laboratory material on UM Learn and complete
five on-line quizzes. If the quizzes have not been completed, the drop-box for submission of the first lab report will not
open. The quizzes are graded, and count for 10% of the laboratory mark, i.e. 2% of the final grade.
CONSULTATION TIMES
These are noted on the Instructors List; other consultations may be arranged by appointment.
ACCESSING WILEYPLUS
Instructions on how to register and use WileyPLUS will be given in class and on the course website. A registration
code is required to access the WileyPLUS site, so if you purchased your registration code with your textbook,
make sure you don’t lose it! If you have a second-hand copy of the text, you will have to purchase your
registration code separately; this can be done online by following the instructions at http://www.wileyplus.com, or
at the customer service centre in the bookstore.
HOMEWORK PROBLEMS
Perhaps the most important thing you will learn from this course is how to think logically and solve problems.
This is an important skill that can be applied to any subsequent area of study. Solving problems yourself and
discussing them with your instructor and your classmates is the best way to learn.
Homework problems from the textbook will be assigned weekly via the WileyPLUS online learning and evaluation
system. A list of recommended problems will also be posted on the web page. You should solve all of these
problems, attempting them as the material is discussed in class. Be cautioned that reading solutions prepared by
someone else is no substitute for working them out by yourself. Note that numerical answers for odd numbered
questions and problems are given in the back of the textbook. If you have extra time, it is always advisable to
work on additional problems from the textbook. Note also that previous years’ tests and solutions are provided for
your reference on the course web site.
Additional aids to solving problems and understanding the important concepts are available in the Read, Study &
Practice section of the WileyPLUS site. Here you can explore many helpful resources, including the Student Study
Guide, Interactive Solutions, Interactive Learningware, Concept Simulations, and Problem Hints and Solutions.
INFORMATION ABOUT VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL
Note that Voluntary Withdrawal has a number of impacts. The student must request permission to retake the course
and there are limits to the number of repeated attempts. Access for VW students to the course may be limited if the
course is full. A Voluntary Withdrawal shall be recorded on the Student History and Official Transcript issued by
the University.
Final grades for courses in which Students ceased attending, without an official VW, will be included on the
Student History and Official Transcript issued by the University, and will be factored into the Student's Grade
Point Average.

PLAGIARISM AND CHEATING (University of Manitoba Undergraduate Calendar, p. 27)
To plagiarize is to take ideas or words of another person and pass them off as one’s own. In short, it is stealing
something intangible rather than an object. Obviously it is not necessary to state the source of well known or easily
verifiable facts, but students are expected to acknowledge the sources of ideas and expressions they use in their
written work, whether quoted directly or paraphrased. This applies to diagrams, statistical tables and the like, as
well as to written material, and materials or information from Internet sources. To provide adequate documentation
is not only an indication of academic honesty but also a courtesy which enables the reader to consult these sources
with ease. Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism. It will also be considered plagiarism and/or cheating if a student
submits a term paper written in whole or in part by someone other than him/herself, or copies the answer or
answers of another student in any test, examination, or takehome assignment.
Plagiarism or any other form of cheating in examinations or term tests (e.g., crib notes) is subject to serious
academic penalty (e.g. suspension or expulsion from the faculty or university). A student found guilty of
contributing to cheating in examinations or term assignments is also subject to serious academic penalty.
EXAMINATIONS: PERSONATIONS (University of Manitoba Undergraduate Calendar, p. 26)
A student who arranges for another individual to undertake or write any nature of examination for and on his/her
behalf, as well as the individual who undertakes or writes the examination, will be subject to discipline under the
university’s Student Discipline Bylaw, which could lead to suspension or expulsion from the university. In
addition, the Canadian Criminal Code treats the personation of a candidate at a competitive or qualifying
examination held at a university as an offence punishable by summary conviction. Section 362 of the Code
provides:
Personation at Examination
362. Every one who falsely, with intent to gain advantage for him/herself or some other person, personates a
candidate at a competitive or qualifying examination held under the authority of law or in connection with a
university, college or school or who knowingly avails him/herself of the results of such personation is guilty of an
offence punishable on summary conviction. 1953 54,c.51,s.347.
Both the personator and the individual who avails him/herself of the personation could be found guilty. Summary
conviction could result in a fine being levied or up to two years of imprisonment.
FACULTY OF SCIENCE STATEMENT ON ACADEMIC DISHONESTY
The Faculty of Science and The University of Manitoba regard acts of academic
dishonesty in quizzes, tests, examinations, laboratory reports or assignments as serious offences and may assess a
variety of penalties depending on the nature of the offence.
Acts of academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to bringing unauthorized
materials into a test or exam, copying from another individual, using answers provided by tutors, plagiarism, and
examination personation.
Note: cell phones, pagers, PDAs, MP3 units or electronic translators are explicitly listed as unauthorized
materials, and must not be present during tests or examinations.
Penalties that may apply, as provided for under the University of Manitoba's Student Discipline ByLaw, range
from a grade of zero for the assignment or examination, failure in the course, to expulsion from the University. The
Student Discipline ByLaw may be accessed at:
http://umanitoba.ca/admin/governance/governing_documents/students/868.htm
!
Suggested minimum penalties assessed by the Faculty of Science for acts of academic dishonesty are available on
the Faculty of Science webpage:
http://umanitoba.ca/faculties/science/resources/Discipline__Penalties_Table_Jul09.pdf
All Faculty members (and their teaching assistants) have been instructed to be vigilant and report all incidents of
academic dishonesty to the Head of the Department.
STUDENT ACCESSIBILITY SERVICES
