Day 3: August 27 "The Scientific Method!" (ta, da, da, dum!!!)

Lesson on the scientific method. Please grab some notes from a friend, and you have to do the "M & M" lab (with the added bonus of getting to eat M & M's in the end). This handout is in file #4. Get it!

Day 2: August 26th

We started reading the essay "Scientific Thinking" which deals with studying empirical evidence in science. This essay is in file #3 in the physics crate. All questions need to be answered on it.

First Day of Class! Sweet!

Today we went over the syllabus. Syllabus is in physics crate file #1. Must have it signed by parents and you. It's worth points!
Students also had to fill out a "student survey". This tells me a lot about you so make sure you fill it out.

OMG! I'm so excited school has started! I love Algebra and Physics soooooo much!!!

Ok, now down to business.

On this blog you will find the following information:

  • All classwork and homework assignments that have happened that day in physics or Algebra 2.
  • The file folder number that contains the handout for a specific day's assignment (students you know where the file crates are that store all handouts in this class).
  • Relevant information regarding an assignment (e.g. "today I want you to look at to see how they did problem number 5", etc).
  • Helpful hints on how to do assignments.
  • Extra credit problems.
Attached to this post you will find my physics syllabus, which includes a host of super informative information (was that redundant?) such as: what to do when your absent, how I grade, tardy policy, norms and rules, class objectives. Peruse at your leisure, but make sure you know it!

I hope this blog helps! Feel free to contact me with any helpful ideas on how I can make this blog better and more informative.
