11th-12th, college preparatory - 2 hours
Pending 2024-2025 Schedule
2:00 - 4:00 pm
Students are given an outline of course work required to complete as school work, which includes the student correcting and grading work they then upload on Schoology according to directions, so grades may be posted. Students are also responsible for writing up their lab reports to cover labs and activities, then post them on Schoology for evaluation.
There are 16 modules, which translate into 32 weeks of work to cover in 30 weeks, so students have a reading and work assignment to complete prior to our first class in the Fall as well as in the Spring semester.
Notebooks are a major part of the course. Student's course work is to be filed weekly.
Advice – Do not get behind!
Grading focuses on following directions and on-time full completion of assignments in order to help teach a valuable life skill that also assists students in their future academics.
This and more are detailed at our Required Orientation.
Please note that Schoology is the platform used for assignments and communication between the teacher and student, so access to a computer and printer are essential to this class.
This is a very fun and engaging class. It is not engineering based, so the excessive math so many are intimidated by does not apply. Students need to have an understanding of some basic trig (sine, cosine, & tangent) and know how to operate their calculator.
Many of our labs use toys to understand the concepts of physics, which surround us! One experiment is performed off campus at a building with an elevator! (Location TBA).
The text provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general physics, heavily emphasizing vector analysis; it is ideal prep for a college physics course. It provides the student with a strong background in one-dimensional and two-dimensional motion, Newton’s laws and their application, gravity, work and energy, momentum, periodic motion, waves, optics, electrostatics, electrodynamics, electrical circuits, and magnetism.
Looking forward to our exciting adventure as we do this together!

2022-2023: This course is a college and work force preparatory class that is formatted to train students accordingly. The course is set up to help teach students how to learn and how to study. It is challenging, but fosters teamwork and class unity.
This course requires time.
Per text – 45 to one hour per school day; however, it can vary greatly for each individual student.
It generally takes six weeks to fall into a routine and determine the time allotment needed for your student to do their best in this course.
This is one of the many things addressed at our Orientation.
The focus of this course is mastery of the material. The best way to accomplish this is by the student handling the material correctly as many times as possible, so everything is open book and students are GRADING and CORRECTING their own work in RED. Rather than turn it in, work is posted online to Schoology. In order to maintain enrollment, students must complete these weekly assignments. Following directions is rewarded. Not doing so is penalized.
No late work is accepted without PRIOR approval and parental involvement.
Two absences are allowed each semester without penalty against the lab grade, but school work assigned to be done at home is still due according to the set schedule.
The vital component of the course grade evaluation is following instructions and keeping work organized.
These details and more are covered at the required Student-Parent Orientation.
What is expected is given in writing at Orientation and posted on Schoology. Class time is less this year, so this material is not discussed in class. If a parent or student has questions, first refer to packet given and resources on Schoology, then if needed schedule a one-on-one meeting time with the teacher. Our schedule does not allow for time the day of class.
Please click on Orientation for the date set aside for Orientation at TTC and to learn more.
The schedule for the day is posted closer to August, once classes have made, so please plan on having that day available.
This critical meeting establishes the student’s school year & the parents’ role in it.
Once the schedule is set for the day, a reminder and confirmation is sent out to parents in August.
Reminder: Schoology is the platform used for assignments and communication between the teacher and student, so access to a computer and printer are essential to this class.
This will be a great year, so come ready to learn!
