a Great Summer!
The best part of my job for
several years has been
ChemPhys. I am blessed to have the opportunity to work with such a
great group of students. It has been a pleasure being your teacher over
the last two years. I hope that many of you continue on to pursue
college studies and a career in math-science-engineering. You all have
such great and promising futures ahead of you. I wish you all a restful
summer and best of luck in your future. Stop by and say hello next
year. Let me know if I can ever be of any assistance.
The final exam in
Physics will be
during a regular 50-minute period on Tuesday, June 3.
about the exam and suggested methods of preparing are available online
A paper copy will be distributed in class and discussed
grading should be completed by the middle of next week (+/- a day). The
project will be
graded using a simple grading rubric. Once graded, a
percentage will be determined and distributed across all 3 grading
categories as follows:
Lab Points: 40
Homework Points: 20
Assessment (Quizzes/Tests) Points: 100
Graded projects will be kept at least one month into the
next year's school year. A rubric similar to the one used to grade the
project is available online.
|Coming Down Slowly
addiction is a very strong force. And it
is very difficult coming off of a powerful and potent addiction to
physics. So for those who know that the coming weeks of no more physics
is going to present some challenges, I would like to suggest a trip to
The Physics Classroom's Pinterest boards. Click the image below
to access a large collection of links to corny humor, physics resources
on all sorts of topics, engineering applications, and a lot of teacher
stuff (which likely wouldn't be of much interest to you). Explore all
you want and come down slowly. (CAUTION: while this might help you come
from your Physics addiction, it is important to know that Pinterest can
be equally addictive.)
"The wise person begins
Minds On Physics early. Only a fool would wait til the last minute."
Be cool, not a fool. MOP it up!

Time in Class
There is no next time. <<
It's been a privilege having each one of you in my physics class. You
all have such many talents in varied areas. I wish you a restful,
well-deserved summer doing all the things you love to do. Please stop
back by next year to say Hello.
