Text: Classical Electrodynamics (Third Edition) by J.D. Jackson

Lectures:     Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10:00 – 10:50 am, 319 Allen Hall

Homework: Homework problems will be assigned. It is important to do the homework
     problems on time and not fall behind. You are allowed to work with others on the
     homework if you find this helpful, but your solutions should be your own. Cite any
     assistance, whether from books or people. Late homework will not be graded, especially
     if it is so late that the set has already been graded.

Exams and Grading: There will be two in-class exams, tentatively scheduled for Friday,
     October 4, and Friday, November 15, and a final exam, scheduled for the last class day
     during finals week (Friday, December 13). The in-class exams will each count 100
     points. The final exam will likely be worth 150 points. The homework will contribute 150
     points out of a total of 500 points.

Reserve Books: A collection of books on classical electrodynamics has been placed on reserve
      in the Physics Library in Old Engineering Hall for your use. The list is given on the back
      side of this sheet.
