The district requires a minimum of additional time equal to the number of days you were absent. I am more lenient because I want you to learn the material. You will have until the end of the following test to complete all old work. After this point it is becoming busy work for you and you are very behind.
Try to read the next section of the book and keep working on the homework. E-mail me while you are out or see me as soon as you get back for specific handouts and information that you missed. This website will also become a resource for you to access handouts and information.
We will cover much of the same material as regular physics. There will be more depth covered. There are a few additional chapters and topics that will be presented. As well there will be a larger focus on problem solving preparing any student to take the AP exam in the spring. In addition to having the opportunity to earn AP credit this class is now offered as dual credit through SEMO.
Parent Link should be used by both students and parents. For students I keep an updated list of grades and missing assignments in the room. If you would like something more current than the list please just see me outside of class. You can also ask your advisory teacher.
What is JERC, and who do I talk to about these robots?
JERC is the Jackson Engineering and Robotics Club. Mr. House and I are the club sponsors. We participate in the FIRST Tech Challenge each year. Robotics club starts up in September and runs almost until spring. While it is a big time commitment we can work with almost any schedule if you would like to be part of the team.
