Most Important Lab Policies
  • To pass Physics 118 you must attend all lab sessions and you must earn at least 50 points of the WebAssign lab homework. See Grade policies for more information.
  • The weekly assignments are all on WebAssign. You need to use the special UW login page: 
  • The weekly due date for all WebAssign lab homework is SUNDAY NIGHT, 11:59 PM.
  • Lab attendance will be recorded on this Canvas page, not WebAssign.

Religious Accommodations

Washington state law requires that UW develop a policy for accommodation of student absences or significant hardship due to reasons of faith or conscience, or for organized religious activities. The UW’s policy, including more information about how to request an accommodation, is available at Religious Accommodations Policy ( Accommodations must be requested within the first two weeks of this course using the Religious Accommodations Request form (

Safe campus

I am committed to ensuring a safe environment on campus. I suggest you check out the resources available here. These include services if you have a lab or tutorial that is late at night and need someone to walk with you.

Academic integrity and student conduct

The University takes academic integrity and student conduct very seriously. Behaving with integrity and respect is part of our responsibility to our shared learning community. 

The University of Washington Student Conduct Code (WAC 478-121) defines prohibited academic and behavioral conduct and describes how the University holds students accountable as they pursue their academic goals. Allegations of misconduct by students may be referred to the appropriate campus office for investigation and resolution. More information can be found online at

If you’re uncertain about if something is academic and behavioral misconduct, ask me. I am willing to discuss questions you might have.
