    Dear Physics Students,
     
    As you all know by now, school has been cancelled for the remainder of the year. However I do not want you to take that as an excuse to do nothing from now until the end. I have a responsibility as an educator and you have a responsibility as a student; that is for me to teach and you to learn. I will not say that the process has been easy, however, if we work together on this, we will both succeed. I will continue to teach the physics curriculum as if you were going to take the Regents. However, I do not expect to do review since there will not be a final. Much of my lecture instruction has been converted to Edpuzzle, which I feel is an excellent way to present new material and challenge a student's understanding. I'm also doing a lot of Do Nows at the beginning of our meetings. The EdPuzzles and Do Nows account for a significant part of their grade. See the attached for the Honors Grading Policy. The AP Grading Policy is still being refined.
     
     
    I will continue meeting with you remotely as per the schedule below. Check the Google Classroom:
    • Honors: Meeting from 9:00 - 10:00AM (M, W, F), Office Hours from 2:00 - 3:00 (M - F).
    • AP Physics C: Meeting from 10:00 - 11:00AM (M, W, F), Office Hours from 1:00 - 2:00 (M -F).

    Best regards, and stay safe. See you then!

     

    Mr. Ropes

     

    Dear Physics Students,

     
    Welcome to honors and AP physics. I will often post my due dates for assignments, tests, and quizzes on this page.
     
    The most recent information given to me indicates that you will be out the rest of the week, using up your snow days and the Friday before Memorial Day. Next week will be your "NEW" official spring break. I have posted a lot of review material, and will be posting more over the next few days. I also intend to voice over my upcoming lectures as well as schedule face-to-face time through Google Meet or Zoom. Please continue to check back here for updates. Note that some due dates are likely to be modified or changed.
     
    Due to the Coronavirus, there will be no school for the next two weeks. That means that we will not physically see each other until March 30th. In the meantime, I will be going over to Google Classroom to post announcements, assignments and other related materials. The codes for each of the classes will be posted below. In addition, I plan on holding video conferences using the Google Meet app. That will allow me to meet with my classes at a specific time so that I can provide instruction and students will be able to ask me questions. There may be some bugs to work out, but I am confident that we can make things work. I hope we all remain in good health in this time of doubt and anxiety.
