Physics

*Remember - Students are responsible for ALL classwork, homework, labs, notes, quizes, and tests. Regardless if a student is absent, late, at the nurse, on a fieldtrip, or for any other reason... students are still responsible for all work during the time/days that they missed class. Homework is due at the BEGINNING of class. I am usually available before school, during lunch, and after school (except Tuesdays) if a student needs to take a quiz, take a test, do a lab, or ask questions.

HOMEWORK due for Wed 5/30
NOTE: you will have a take home quiz on light which will be passed out on Friday and Due on Wednesday.
Light & Magnetism QUIZ.doc. As this is a quiz, you are allowed to use your notes, but not the powerpoint, not your textbook, not the internet, and definitely not another person to assist you in taking this quiz. Please note that I will be comparing your quiz with your final exam and if your anwers are not similar in their descriptions of the answers, you will be earning a ZERO for this quiz. If you are copying from another student, you will be earning a ZERO for this take home quiz.
