All about energy
What is Freshman Physics all about?
Freshman Physics introduces students to the basic concepts of how energy interplays with matter. We will use a hands-on, inquiry based approach to exploring all major areas of traditional physics. Tasks will often require group effort, but always demand individual ingenuity.
This ½ year course is for ninth graders and has no pre-requisite except a willingness to learn while working with others.
What we are learning in Freshman Physics?
Physics Standards Based Curriculum
This course is being offered for the first time this year. As the current 9th graders have learned physics in the 8th grade, the schedule is intentionally loose to allow for ongoing curricular modification
Teacher’s Note: This syllabus is only intended on providing a rough idea of what to expect. The curriculum was revised this year to better meet the state Grade Span Expectations (GSEs). There will be various lab reports, quizzes, tests, writing assignments and even projects not listed above and some adjustment to time allotment. Thank you for your patience, Mr. Reis
