Homework, Tests, and Quizzes

Doing physics is a very important part of learning physics, therefore, homework will be assigned almost everyday. Homework will be corrected and discussed the next day. Homework will be collected when needed. Tests and quizzes will be given when needed. Tests will be announced before they will be given. Tests (60%) will be the majority of the grade, homework (20%), projects, and labs (20%).

Teacher Philosophy
It is my goal to maintain a classroom atmosphere that is conducive to the study of physics, and to explain all concepts to the best of my ability, in or out of the classroom. I can provide the environment and guidance but cannot learn for you the student. You are responsible for your learning.

I believe that a student cannot learn self discipline unless he or she has been disciplined in a firm, consistent and fair manner. I will run my class accordingly. Remember, every student in this room has the right to an education without disruptive influences or distractions of any kind form other students. I as a teacher have the right to teach without the same disruptions or distractions from students.
