Oct. 29 - CAP Lecture: UBCO Physics is excited to announce the launch of the 2019 CAP Undergraduate Lecture Tour, which features excellent presentations on a variety of modern topics in physics.

We are hoping to host a distinguished physicist here at UBC Okanagan to give a presentation on some aspect of current physics research. The presentation will be designed for an audience of undergraduate physics students. We want you to play a major role is selecting the speaker that will come to the Okanagan!

To view the list of speakers and topics, visit the following website. There is a list of 26 potential speakrs!

If you're interested in helping us select the speaker that will be most appealing to you, please review the list of potential speakers and identify those that you'd be interested in seeing. Email me your preferred list of speakers by Monday, Nov. 5.

The 2019 Lecture Tour schedule will be confirmed by the end of November, and lectures may take place any time during term 2 of the 2018/2019 academic year.

Oct. 23 - Another Physics Talk: Mir Faizal will give a talk about his research on pre-big bang cosmology. The talk will be held:

Monday, Oct. 29 from 14:30 - 15:30 in EME 1202.

All are welcome. See this poster for the title and abstract.

Oct. 19 - Inverse Fourier Transform: Maple work shown in the seminar: example of the approximate inverse Fourier transform of to reconstruct the f(t) that followed an exponential decay.

Formal Reports: Here is the formal report grading scheme and an example formal report.

There is a 10-page limit for all formal reports. This includes the abstract, all figures, all tables, and the bibliography.

See the course syllabus for the late policy.

Experiment #1 formal report due Mon., Nov. 5 @ 23:59
    -- email a pdf of your report to Jake.

Experiment #2 formal report due Tue., Dec. 4 @ 23:59
    -- email a pdf of your report to Jake.

Presentation rubric: Everyone will participate in grading the class presentations.

Here are links to the grading rubric and the grading form.

There are six categories and each presenter will be assigned a mark out of 10 for each category. If two presenters are working together, they will receive the same marks for the first four categories, but will receive individual marks for the final two.

Everyone will get a mark out of 90 for their presentation. Eight of the remaining 10 marks will be rewarded based on attendence.

You are required to email me your presentation slides by noon on the day of your presentation. If you meet this deadline, you will receive 2 marks. Acceptable formats are pdf, ppt, pptx, and odp.

LaTeX: LaTeX Tutorials:

Documents to introduce you to LaTeX
