Examiners

Information

Examination topics

The student should be able to demonstrate knowledge of the physics associated with clocks, including: sundials, pendulum clocks, quartz clocks, atomic clocks. The student should be able to demonstrate knowledge of the systems of time used in the world today and the definition of time standards. The student should understand principles of clock accuracy, precision, and statistics. The student should understand some very basic principles of time with regard to special and general relativity. All of this material will be addressed in the lectures.

Assessment and permitted materials

I hope to give a written test after the end of the lectures. No books, notes, or other outside material will be needed or permitted. If COVID does not allow for this, then we will have oral examinations via video teleconference.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

An exam score of at least 50% is necessary to receive a passing grade.
