Welcome to Physics 12
- SHOW UP ON TIME: The first few minutes of class are very important. They set the tone for the entire lesson. Nothing is more disruptive than a stream of students drifting in late and interrupting the lesson. If you are late, enter the classroom quickly and quietly and take your seat. All "lates" are recorded. After your second unexcused late you will be spending some time with me at flex.
- DO NOT MISS CLASSES: Attending classes regularly will ensure you do not miss important concepts. Even if you are not feeling the greatest, you will learn more than if you are absent. If you know that you will be absent make sure that you inform me beforehand. If you do miss a class it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to get any notes or assignments that you missed. I suggest that you take the phone numbers of several people who live near you so that you may call and ask about the day’s proceedings (see back of this sheet). These people should be counted on to collect any handouts for you. Following these suggestions will prevent you from falling too far behind.Note: YOU ARE EXPECTED TO COMPLETE EVERY ASSIGNMENT WHETHER YOU ARE HERE OR NOT
- COMPLETING ASSIGNMENTS: Work must be written neatly and legibly. If you struggle with your homework the minimum you can do for each assigned problem is:
- Draw a picture 2. Write out the known variables 3) Write down a relevant equation
- BE A PURPOSEFUL LEARNER: At all times be on task and participate in the lesson. Behave in a mature and cooperative way using every minute of class time effectively. When the announcements come on in our class, remain seated and listen to them without talking. Also, remember that it is your teacher who dismisses you not the announcements or the bell.
- MATERIALS: The tools necessary for this course are two pens (one red and one blue or black), a pencil with eraser, 3 ring binder with ample supply of notepaper, a ruler, and a calculator.
- EXTRA HELP: If you would like to see me for extra help, come see me during flex time. If you are struggling the responsibility is YOURS to get on track.
- CHEATING: Students are expected to complete their own work on an individual basis unless otherwise stated by the teachers. Any student who plagiarizes the work of another - either in test situations or on major assignments will face disciplinary action. This may range from receiving a zero on an assignment or test to disciplinary action by the administration. (Note: the work of “another” includes that of students or any published work such as books, CD-ROM, Internet and periodicals).
