Questions and email policy:
You can use the discussion board on Quercus to ask questions about the course and its
content. Often, other students will respond quicker than TAs or I will.
Medical and personal issues should be discussed with me through email.
My email policy is to respond within two business days. You should consult your TA for their
email policy; however, they are also balancing many obligations and should not be expected to
reply to emails immediately. Please plan accordingly.
Please include PHYA22 in the email subject and provide your full name and student number in
your message.

You must attend your assigned practical session throughout the term.
Practicals are held every week and will involve a mix of problem solving and activities,
performed in groups of 3 or 4 students. Work is collaborative; each group will receive one grade.
Some of these activities will be marked each week.
You will not have to purchase a lab book for this course.
There will be a formal lab report required for this course, worth 10% of your grade. This will be
submitted by your lab group (3 4 students). Details on expectations and grading will be
discussed and posted later in the term.
Absence policy
Practicals are team-based. It is important you attend all sessions. Absences forfeit the grade for
that week and, in addition, your overall practicals grade will be penalized by the cube of the
number of absences. For example, 2 absences result in a penalty of 23 = 8% and so on.
If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will be counted as absent and incur the cube of
absences penalty. You can receive credit for group work if you arrive before the bulk of that
work has begun at your TA’s discretion.
Exceptions will be made for legitimate medical and personal reasons. For health reasons,
please provide documentation from UTSC Health Services.
