Text:          D. J. Griffiths, Introduction to Electrodynamics, 4th edition, Prentice Hall, 2013

Course organization and grading:

Course outline (continues Phy 301):
    1. Conservation laws in electrodynamics
    2. Electromagnetic waves in vacuum
Electromagnetic waves in matter
    4. Potential formulation of electrodynamics
    5. Radiation of electromagnetic waves
    6. Electrodynamics and special relativity

Material will be presented primarily in lectures, readings assignments from the text, and homework problems.
Lecture will cover the material to be learned, some important examples, and will direct your study from the text,
however some material will be presented in class that is not in the text. Generally, students who attend the
lecture do better on exams and have better
overall class experience. Thus, you should attend class, pay attention
while there, and take notes over the material.
You should plan on 2 - 3 hours of study outside of class for every lecture.
The Final exam is comprehensive.

Working together:  Students are encouraged to study in small groups, discuss the material and HW problems.
It should be perfectly clear that each person is responsible for completing and submitting the work.
It is NOT acceptable to divide the problems, when one solves problem 1 and the other problem 2.
Exchange of any information between the students during an exam is unacceptable.

Note: If you have a disability that may affect your ability to carry out the assigned course work,
you are urged to contact the staff of the Disabled Student Services.
DSS will review your concerns with you and determine what accommodations are necessary and appropriate.
All information and documentation of disability is confidential and will not be shared with faculty.
