Welcome Message: Welcome to my home page! And welcome to Physics at Roy C. Ketcham High School!
Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,
I hope you are all well! I am spending most of my time holed up downstairs by the fire, working on how we are going to manage going forward.
Depending on the class, there will be several different approaches to communication and assignments. All students can expect to receive messages via Remind, as well as communications in their respective Google Classroom. Some information will be sent via school emails as well.
For all classes, lecture material will be posted in the Presentations section on the Web site of the respective classes and also in the appropriate Google Classroom. Review of this material will be essential to completing the other planned activities.
My Astronomy classes can expect the usual mix of presentations, review questions, textbook questions, and at least one short project per chapter. I plan to be available from 10:15 – 11:45 for my Astronomy students.
My Regents Physics classes can expect WebAssign homework as usual. In addition, I plan to provide classwork via WebAssign and also on Google Classroom. There will be some lab activities using PHET since we cannot do things in person!
I will be available for Regents students from 8-9AM and also from 1-2PM. During this time I will answer any questions on the posted presentations as well as assist with classwork problems. I will be available after 2PM until 3PM if needed.
Individual classes will receive more detailed information as appropriate. I appreciate your patience as we move forward. This is new for all of us, and I am here to help and support you as best I can. Please do not hesitate to contact me via email if you have any questions. We will get through this together!
