Level I Physics Plans

Shoemaker

2018-2019

Updated 1/5/2020

 

Class Goal

Use what you know to understand what you don’t know yet in order to learn & understand the bigger picture

These plans are a working document and are subject to change.  Plans are made for a “quickest possible” schedule.  Work toward the written plan and communicate difficulties.

All students are responsible to know what is listed when.  I recommend that you book mark/shortcut, etc to this page.

Please send any questions to mailto:dshoemaker@mbgsd.org
