Physics 6th

Welcome to Physics!

This page is meant to help you stay up to date with the weekly assignments and expectations. Below you will see the Physics Year at a Glance that lists the units and the sequence in which the material will be covered over the school year. Each unit is given a suggested number of days to spend on the material as we prepare for the summative unit assessment.  We will strive to stay very close to this schedule.    

Below the Year at a Glance, you will find a calendar that will contain information that will be updated weekly pertaining to the current unit.

Below the Calendar, you will find a set of tabs that are useful in helping to become familiar with the material that will be covered in the current unit.  Included is a unit overview, unit vocabulary and rubric(s) for the performance assessments that will be the focus of the unit.  If you have any questions regarding the material or how the information is laid out on this page, please feel free to contact me.
