Rollback: It is not clear to me whether you are adding PHYS 2023 to the course offerings of the department, or replacing PHYS 1023 with PHYS 2013. The uploaded syllabus is for PHYS 1023, one of the reasons I am confused. Please make changes to the syllabus if necessary (you need not specify a term) and also make sure that the statements on academic integrity/honesty are kept together, rather than separated as they are now.
