A note for new physics students and their parents:
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
school to work with other students and Mr. Bryant on
homework--take advantage of this additional time to check
answers and ask questions. ESS 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 to email Mr. Bryant at the
email address on the left (Don't forget the "2")! Last
year I switched teaching styles in my physics classes and
began using the "Flipped Classroom" model. Students
last year really liked this and I plan on using it for the
foreseeable future. If you would like to know more
about my choice to "flip" my classroom, watch this short
video on "Why
Flipped My Classroom."
More information about the particular
Flipped Classroom model I'm using is available from
Lodge McCammon's site.
