physics course that explores topics such as Newtonian mechanics (including rotational

motion), work, energy, and power; mechanical waves and sound, and introductory

simple circuits.

Both problem solving skills and concept understanding will be addressed

throughout the course. Student progress and assessment will be determined through text

assignments, teacher generated worksheets, laboratory work, and varied-form tests for

each unit. Laboratory work will correlate with current topics and will involve both

traditional and inquiry based activities.

Laboratory

Students are required to complete and submit individual laboratory reports.

Advance Placement Physics 1 laboratories will be a mix of traditional directed

laboratory activities in addition to inquiry based laboratory activities.

Grading

Quarter grades for AP Physics will be determined from a variety of activities.

Activities will be weighted and will include the following:

current and relevant topics. Laboratory

work will correlate with current topics and

will involve both traditional and inquiry

based activities.

10 % Topic related assignments – In class and homework assignments that

support the current topic. Due to the analytical

nature of physics assignments are checked for

accuracy and scored accordingly.

80 % Assessment – Unit tests and practice exams to gauge your progress.

It is required that class work, homework, laboratories, and tests be submitted for grading on

time. Credit will not be given for assignments that have already been graded and returned to the

class. Credit will not be given for assignments missed because of an unexcused absence.

Assignments missed due to an absence can always be made up in accordance with the

guidelines in the student handbook and will be accepted for full credit. It is expected that missed

laboratories will be made up either before or after school. All make-up work for a unit must be

completed prior to taking the unit test.

Students are expected to maintain academic integrity at all times. Academic integrity violations

can include plagiarism, cheating, and unauthorized group work on any assignment, project, or test.

Students with academic integrity issues will be subject to the following:

Parent/guardian notification.

The student will receive an F with zero credit on the assignment, project, or test.

The citizenship grade will be lowered for the current grading period.

A notice will be recorded with the guidance department.

Any occurrence of academic dishonesty may be reported on college admissions

applications by the guidance department.

For students involved in extracurricular activities additional notification will be

made to the club sponsor or coach.

Grades will be posted on line and updated periodically through the school web site. Any

discrepancy with the posted grade must be addressed immediately either before or after school.

Grades are submitted to the office twice per quarter. Any discrepancy in the quarter grade or

semester exam grade must be addressed within a week of grade distribution. No changes will be

made in quarter grades or semester exam grades after this time.

Letter grades will be assigned in accordance with Florida Department of Education

guidelines:

Percent Letter

90 – 100 A

80 – 89 B

70 – 79 C

60 – 69 D

0 – 59 F

I look forward to a productive and enjoyable year in physics. Please do not hesitate to

contact me with any concerns. While I am unable to take phone calls during instructional time

e-mail messages will be addressed either by e-mail or phone as time permits. I can be reached

by phone after school (1:50 pm) and may be free to talk at that time.
