Course Title: Physics
Grade Level: 10-12
Requirements: This course fulfills the graduation requirement for one of two years of laboratory Science.
Approed by !S" and satisfies the A-# requirements for "! system.
Prerequisite: Algebra $$ or higher.
Course Description: This course is aimed to help students with a wide range of bac%grounds and abilities to learn Physics
by becoming inoled in the sub&ect' challenging them to bring out their creatiity and potential' their
ability to wor% with others' and to refine their mathematical methods of laboratory measurements. $n
addition( it stri%es a balance between emphasi)ing the principles and concepts of Physics and the
solution of realistic problems. Students are also encouraged to e*perience physical results in a
different way by means of tables and graphs.

5f a student misses the day an exam was administered, the student will take the exam the first day the student
returns to class. /ew exceptions apply.
RETA9ES %a.<.a. RETESTS)
7etaking an exam is possible under the following rules.
!87etakes are optional and therefore, they are offered after school only.

%8A student will not be allowed to retake an exam if he;she has not completed a 9test self&
evaluation: on where <the test8 he;she scored poorly.
LATE ASSI5NMENTS
Any assignment that is submitted after the due date will either lose points or will simply not be counted at all,
depending on how late the assignment is submitted.
E;TRA CRE6IT
=xtra credit assignments are >?4 available for this course.
BIN6ER
A binder is re6uired for this class. 5t is acceptable to use a binder used in another class as long as the material for
the physics class is kept separate from the other sub@ects. 4he binder will have two sections. 5n !ection #, you will
keep notes, vocabulary and reference papers. 5n !ection -, you will keep all your graded assignments including
exams. 5 will announce ahead of time when binders will be collected to be graded.
