Welcome to Physics 125, Particle Physics, for Spring 2010. We'll meet MWF 12:00-12:50pm in Building 387, Room 101. The textbook is `Introduction to Elementary Particles,' Second, Revised Edition by David Griffiths (don't get the First Edition). The Instructor is Harry Nelson, and he'll hold office hours Friday 2pm-4pm in 5103 Broida. The TA is James Sully, and his office hours are Monday 10:00am-11:30am in the PSR, on the first floor of Broida.

Generally, homework will be assigned Mondays and due the subsequent Monday in class; late homework generally must be approved in advance by James Sully. James has written solutions to some homework assignments... linked below.

The midterm took place Monday, May 3... the average was 84, which was very good... that is about a B grade; A- 90 and above, C- 70 and above. The final will be Tuesday, June 8 at noon in Building 387, Room 101. The current plan is for homework to count 35%, the midterm 25%, and the final 40%.
