Homework Policy

 Homework is a vital component of student success as we encourage life-long learning at Palestine.

We are committed to the goal that every student be workforce or college ready-equipped with the skills and character traits necessary to thrive at these levels. 

Homework provides students the opportunity to reinforce

what they have learned, develop habits of self-discipline and time management, learn

to work independently, and to take a personal responsibility for learning.

Absences

 

Please do NOT schedule appointments during this class.   Physics moves quickly and covers a lot of material. It is your responsibility to get missed materials/assignments the day you return from an absence.

 

Assignments

 

Assignments may be collected as you enter the class on the due date. Those turned in later are considered late and will receive a deduction.

The process and the final answer are both important components of problems, so you must show your work!

This includes

a) any formulas used,

b) the given,

c) the numbers plugged into the formula along with the units,

d) the final answer written with the correct number of significant digits and units.

Homework quizzes may be given over assigned problems.

Study groups are encouraged as your peers are a great resource for relearning, reinforcing, and applying the principles you will be studying.

 

 

Grades:                60 % of your grade is determined by test

                                20% of your grade is determined by homework, lecture notes, etc.

Materials:

      * 3 ring binder with pockets, paper,2 notebooks (for notes, worksheets,...)

      * scientific calculator 3 points will be deducted from homework points when you forget to bring your  calculator to class.

      * pencils, black or blue pens

     

 

Classroom Guidelines:

      * Follow the Flinn Student Safety Contract for Laboratory guidelines including:

            * wearing safety goggles when in the lab

            * no “horseplay” or unauthorized experiments

      * Lab stations, glassware, and equipment should be returned clean after each lab. Points will

      be deducted from stations not cleaned.                                        

     * Cheating will not be tolerated and may result in a grade of zero for those involved. You are
encouraged to work with others especially when you don't know how to approach a problem,    but any work you turn in must be your own.

Lab Notebooks are to be kept as a written documentation of the experiments performed in this class. Your entries should be neat and put in the order listed in the "Lab Notebook Guidelines". The "Pre-Lab" section includes a title, purpose, answered pre-lab questions, a flowchart of the procedures, and data tables. This should be written in your notebook before the start of the lab. You may be graded on this portion of the lab before you actually do the experiment.
