Physics 9 P1
The Physics 9 course introduces students to the study of physics conceptually by studying physical phenomena, and by requiring them to describe those phenomena computationally and graphically, both in the classroom and the laboratory. The major topics include kinematics, mechanics, impulse, momentum, energy, waves, light, optics, sound, electricity, magnetism, earth and space science. The Physics 9 course differs from other classes in its rigor, and in the depth of some topics.
- Notebook/notebook paper (perforated edges preferred)
- Chromebook (school supplied)
- Scientific calculator (not mandatory)

Grading for this class is based on the district mandated grading policy. Progress reports count for 10% of each trimester grades. Assessments count for 50% of each trimester grades. Finally, all other assignments will count for 40% of each trimester grades.
If you are unable to attend class, please contact me as soon as possible. If a class is missed, it is the responsibility of the student to make up all work missed. Please plan ahead of time if you know you are going to be absent.
I follow the district policy for late work. The first day an assignment is late, 25% will be taken off of the final grade. The second day an assignment is late, 50% will be taken off of the final grade. Any assignment not handed in after 2 days will not be accepted.
All tests and quizzes must be made up within the week of the student’s return to class – or they become ZEROS. All tests and quizzes must be made up. Labs and projects will be made up at the teachers’ discretion.
