Numerical Calculations Assessment

June 14, 2017

This assessment is different. ┬áThere won’t be an in-class test, but instead you will just turn in a video or show me your calculation in person (stop by my office). ┬áThe assessment will be due by July 11 – but you can resubmit to get a higher grade if you need to.

Here is how I will grade this assessment:

  • 1 point: you have something that looks like code with physics stuff
  • 2 points: you have code that seems to make sense, but it doesn’t run without an error
  • 3 points: you have a numerical calculation that runs – but it is super simple
  • 4 points: a numerical calculation that is slightly more complicated and could also be reproduced without a computer (analytical solution)
  • 5 points: a numerical calculation with a non-constant force
