bulletThe above assignments are for the entire chapter.  Be sure to check with your own notes to see which homework
pertains to where you left off when absent.  I will be giving out printed answer sheets for all (P) practice assignments.  The rest will be gone over in class so be sure to have a classroom buddy who will show you the solutions.  I have answer sheets for all worksheets that you may borrow to help you.

Please check the classroom board daily to determine which assignment pertains to a particular day.  Since the pace of the class is decided daily based on the classes' understanding of the material, sometimes the class notes for a particular homework assignment are not gotten to. Therefore, the homework must be amended.

 

QUIZ AND TEST ANNOUNCEMENTS

Honors Physics One and Two will have a quiz on Tuesday, May 3th.

The dates here may be amended due to unforeseen circumstances, so please check the classroom board daily for the most accurate information.
