A note for new physics students and their
Physics can be a very challenging
subject and students often find
themselves working on complex questions. On a block schedule,
time is compressed and missing a single day can sometimes significantly
affect learning. Mr. Bryant suggests you work ahead as much as you are
able, stay current on assignments, and ask for help sooner rather than
later. Many students come in before school or stay after
to work with other students and Mr. Bryant on homework--take advantage
of this additional time to check answers and ask questions.
on Thursdays is another resource you should not forget--sometimes Mr.
Bryant stays for ESS to help students, but at other times peer physics
tutors are available. If you have questions, don't hestitate
email Mr. Bryant at the email address on the left (Don't forget the
the 2013-2014 school year progress, I plan on
styles in my physics classes and begin using the "Flipped Classroom"
If you would like to know more about my choice to "flip" my
classroom, watch this short video on "Why
I Flipped My Classroom."
More information about the Flipped
Classroom model is available from the Friday
Institute for Educational Innovation-Project FIZZ.
