
EM waves are not easy to be observed
 Computers are available on campus/at home
 Animations and simulations can explain
subtle concepts and reveal physical insight
Theory + Experiment + Simulation
Course objectives

Understanding fundamental concepts and
laws governing the electromagnetic waves
 Understanding the mathematical formulation
of these laws
 Learning basic problem-solving skills and
research procedures
Homework and exams

Homework. You need to use all your learned
knowledge and skills to solve the problems.
All the steps should be clearly presented in
the solutions. Calculators and/or computers
are needed.
 Exams are testing your fundamental
understanding of the subject. Numerical
calculation is minimal. No calculators and
computers are needed.
Tips for Getting an A+

Attend all lectures
 Concentrate on EM stuff in classroom
 Learn problem solving skills from your
peers; don’t copy their work
 Ask questions when you have any, not only
in classroom, but also awat
 Participate classroom discussions
You Can Get Extra Points!
