Sylabus

When working through the chapters follow this sequence:

1) Read one section of the text at a time. Utilize the chapter power point presentations located on your CP Physics disc as a tool for concept understanding. WATCH THE VIDEOS ASSOCIATED WITH EACH SECTION!!

2) After watching the Power Point for each section and videos associated with it: turn to the chapter highlights page in the text and ensure you understand the key ideas for that section then work the review questions in the text at the end of the section. These questions are best done working alone. These review questions are not graded; however, they are a great way to check your understanding of the section.

3) Work the review sheet for the section. You should try and do the review sheet without any help; however, it is permitted to utilize any sources to work through the sheet. This sheet is self assessed and is not graded. Use it to assess your knowledge of the section!!

4) Once the review sheet is completed, take the quiz for that section. The quiz is a level 2 assessment and you are expected to work on it by yourself.

6) Always seek the answers to your questions. Don't let them go unanswered. In case you "forgot" your textbook, there is an electronic copy on the CP Physics disc.

7) HOMEWORK IS DUE WHEN YOU TAKE THE CHAPTER TEST. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS. EXCUSES WILL NOT BE ENTERTAINED. THIS CLASSROOM IS A NO WHINING ZONE.

8) Equations you don't have to memorize. If it's not on this sheet, you have to memorize it.
