COURSE POLICIES: After each exam, the instructor will go over the exam in class. Students should look over the questions that they missed. If the student feels that his or her response is tolerably correct, he or she may appeal the question in writing. All appeals must be presented to the instructor within one week of the original test date. Appeals should contain the following enumerated data: 1) student name, 2) question number, 3) response of the instructor, and 4) student response. Following this essential data, explain why you think your response is better than or at least as good as your instructor's response. Each student is responsible for his or her own appeal; summary correction to test scores will not be made. Appeals not adhering to the required format will be returned. The instructor's decisions in these matters are final. 8. SCHOOL POLICIES: All school policies will be rigidly enforced -- no exceptions! Students must be familiar with and abide by the guidelines in the UHS Student Handbook 9. EXPECTATIONS: The instructor assumes that you are mature, motivated, and willing to broaden your understanding of the physical world; that you are curious, objective, and interested in new ideas; and above all, that you are ready, willing, and able to work and study every day. This course is demanding; successful completion requires full determination and dedication from beginning to end. Your work in this course can be likened to the flight of an airplane. If you cruise at altitude (study regularly), the amount of work required is reasonable; if you are constantly landing and taking off (periodically cramming), it requires more fuel and the odds of a crash (failure) increase. Refer to the EXAM PREPARATION AND FOLLOW UP guidelines for suggestions about time and work load management. Course Description: Physics is required of all Freshmen as a preparation for further scientific study. The course is laboratory oriented with emphasis placed upon discovery and understanding, rather than memorization of facts. Students will use inductive and deductive reasoning along with cause and effect relationships to solve problems. This course involves a large amount of mathematics, use of scientific calculators and graphing work. Learning a scientific method provides students with the fundamental theory and laboratory experience that will be useful in future scientific studies. Emphasis is placed on basic physics: study of forces, laws of motion, energy, simple machine function; basic chemistry: study of the periodic table, atomic structure, molecular bonding and classification of matter.
