Grading Scale Grading will be based on total points for the grading
period. The grading scale will be as follows:
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%).

and guidance but cannot learn for you the student. You are responsible for
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

same disruptions or distractions from students.
