Grading Policy

  • One of our core objectives in a course like Physics is to make sure we are preparing students who are college-ready.  One of the key aspects of preparing students for college-level science courses is developing strong scientific writing habits.  As a result, writing is heavily emphasized in most assignments and labs completed in this course.  Students' grades are calculated on a (Points Earned) / (Points Possible) basis.  The usual point breakdown for assignments is as follows:

    Lab Write-ups: 20 points

    Homework Assignments: 10 points

    Tests and Projects: 100 points
