problem sheets
There are eight assessed problem sheets for this course, totalling 10% of the total marks available for the PHY105 half-module. These problem sheets will be handed out to you during the problems class each week. You will be expected to complete as homework any problems that you don't manage to finish during the class, and hand your solutions in to your problems class leader the following week. The class leader will mark them and then go through the solutions with you a week later.
