My course description: AP Physics 2 short sheet

Summer work and instructions can be found in my summer powerpoint. Register at www.PearsonSchool.com/Access ; you should then have access to www.masteringphysics.com; my course is AP2MACUK2018; you must use the registration code I provided to subscribe!
Attendance: for more information on my tardiness policy, see the FAQ page Missed Classwork/Labs for more information on my makeup policy, see the FAQ pageClasswork and Labs are worth 40% of your grade! Missed Quizzes/Tests for more information on my makeup policy, see the FAQ page Quizzes and Tests together are worth 50% of your grade!

If you have an excused absence, make sure you note this on any work you hand in after its due date, or it will be assumed to be late work!Unexcused absences (no parent call in or other reason listed on the portal)will result in a zero for missed work or assessments!


REMEMBER TO SAVE ORIGINAL WORK IN YOUR SHARED STUDENT FOLDER!REMEMBER TO CHANGE THE SHARED SETTINGS ON ANY ASSIGNMENT YOU PUT IN MY INBOX FOLDERS!Documents in my Outbox are MS-Word documents: to print correctly, DO NOT print as a Google doc!

Besides my material in my Outbox, Essential Physics e-textbook and interactive tools are available; additional Power Point notes on our topics can be found at the CPO Science website: look in the Presentation Slides box on the lower left.
COLOR KEY: material we have covered or are about to cover old material that is tentatively, or has not been, scheduled ㊙ notes to myself about material for next year
