**------------------------------------------------------**

**Midterm exam and
class announcements:**

1. The midterm exam will be closed-book
questions. You are allowed to bring with

you ONE page
of equations which you can use.

The main point is that you need to review the
material we have covered, not just

the homework problems. Questions will come mostly from
the lecture notes and from

the homework. Do not expect solutions requiring lengthy
mathematics.

The exam is scheduled for Thursday, March 16, from
12:30pm-1:45pm in

Cardwell Hall 146.

2. Rules of Students' lectures

1. The lecturer should bring the prepared
notes (after my approval) to Deanna. She

will make the
copies which the lecturer will distribute to the class before the lecture.

Only
present the essential equations, figures and explanations in your notes.
You are

NOT expected
to lecture by reading your notes.

2. After each lecture, the audience
is to grade the quality of the presentation. Hand in

your grading
right after the lecture.

Give the
grade from 1 to 5, with 5 the highest. Sign your name. At the end

I will
normalize the grading giving by each student. So just be consistent. You

can make
comments which I will pass on to the lecturer.

3. I will grade the
notes you presented to the class. Each lecture should not have more

than 6 pages unless
more figures are used. The absolute maximum is 8 pages.

3. For the rest of this semester

No homework will be assigned
any more. The lecture notes and the grading from the

students on your lecture will be account for half
of the total homework grade.

The final will include material covered optics only.
