CPA/CP Freshman Physics


INTRODUCTION
AF/AE Freshman Physics is a preliminary high school science course designed to draw from previous physical science courses to build an understanding of the relationship between energy and matter.

Here is a copy of the Freshman Physics syllabus:


TEXTBOOK
The textbook that we use is Conceptual Physics by Paul Hewitt, 2002.
This is a fantastic resource and is often overlooked by students who are
looking for a different explanation of the topics we cover.

HOMEWORK IS DUE EVERY SINGLE THURSDAY NIGHT AT 9:00 PM (except on holiday weeks)

Homework is given regularly. We use a service called Webassign to help students practice the skills they are taught every day in class. Webassign has a one-time cost of $10.50 per student paid directly to the website by the student or parent. This amount is well worth the benefits provided by the website. We have found over many years (since 1993) that the practice and immediate feedback that Webassign offers aides our students far more than any paper assignment we can design.

Questions or issues about logging in or signing up can usually be resolved immediately, so if there are any issues feel free to contact me directly.

We use the MCAS formula sheet throughout the year. Here is a copy.
