Welcome
ACP - KNIGHTS
• Honors Physics
Mrs. Lowe
What is Physics?
Physics is the science of matter,
energy, space, and time.
• It explains matter
as combinations of
particles which
interact through
the 4 major forces.
Why are you here?
So you can understand comics?
So you can make lots of money?
justification for higher education
Because your parents said so?
So you can graduate from high school?

Or you happen to actually like physics
– like me?!
• Degree in Cell and Molecular Biology
• Minor in Chemistry
• Physics was part of my curriculum
• I was paid to raise fruit flies
for genetic research.

We are a team – please don’t be afraid to help
me out – on occasion I do make mistakes.
This is not about me – it’s about YOU.
I graduated from High School, College,
I’m here to help you.
Please don’t be offended if I get your name
wrong – I can’t remember my own kids names!

• First Quarter = 40%
• Second Quarter = 40%
• Semester Exam = 20%
Grades can be accessed online at any time
Attendance
• Your grade will reflect your attendance –
especially in a laboratory class.
• It is YOUR responsibility to get missed work.
Need Help?
ASK
Cell Phones/Electronics
• Not to be used during class
• Use during an exam or lab will result in a zero
• Only bottled water is permitted in class
Consequences
You ALWAYS have a choice –
What you CAN’T do is
choose your consequences
Classroom Procedures
Students have the right to learn
and
Teachers have the right to teach.
Therefore, all rules will ensure
that those rights are recognized.
