## Welcome to Physics 2011-2012
Physics is about the nature of basic things, such as motion, forces, energy, matter, heat, sound light and the composition of atoms. Because the ideas of physics are fundamental to both chemistry and biology, it is considered to be the most basic science. Because we live in a physical world in which our interactions follow the laws of physics, learning physics will affirm quantitatively what we know intuitively (with our intuition) or somatically (with our bodies). We will use mathematics to express our findings and to prove or disprove ideas that may be ambiguous. We will us the scientific method and the act of scientific inquiry through investigations and experiments to assimilate key concepts, as outlined in the California Content Standards for Physics.

Daily learner materials include the regulation, quadrille-ruled notebook, a scientific calculator, sharpened standard and color pencils, the Nea planner and two highlighters of different colors.
Nea 6-11 Village has adopted a uniform late work policy. Please familiarize yourself with its parameters and ask a question if something is not clear, as it will be adhered to without exception.
A learner will be evaluated using a variety of modalities and a grade appropriated based on the following percentage scale using weighted categories: Projects 30% Laboratory 25% Assessments 30% 100%
89.5% - 100% = A 79.5% – 89.4% = B 69.5% - 79.4% = C 59.5% - 69.4% = D 59.4% and below = F For a comprehensive course overview, outline and curriculum, please visit the Course Document section on this webpage.
MaMaafi can be reached via Nea email from the website, or by calling 510-748-4008 x 130. | ## NoteBook Table of Contents

*NEW*The "Word of the Week" post chronicles an interesting word that comes up in the context of seminar. The word of the week and its relevant definition (which the learner must find) must be added to the
**APPENDIX COLLECTION**. Start on the last page of your notebook appendix and work toward the front. Write "Word of the Week" at the top of the page, and then, "Week of _____________:" then write the word and the*definition related to Physics!*Week of September 6th 2011:**SCIENTIFIC NOTATION.****Week of September 12th 2011:****SIGNIFICANT FIGURES.**Week of Sept 19th:**PRECISION**Week of Sept 26th:**ACCURACY**Week of October 3rd:**VECTOR**Week of October 10th:**SCALAR**Week of October 17th:**WATER CLOCK**Week of October 24th:**NEWTON (the man and the unit of measure)**Week of October 31st:**SIGMA (summation)**Week of November 7th:**FORCE**Week of November 14th:**RESISTANCE**Week of December 5th:**NEWTON'S FIRST LAW**Week of December 12th:**NEWTON'S SECOND LAW**Week of January 2nd:**NEWTON'S THIRD LAW**Week of January 9th:**GALILEO**
