Course Name: Physics
References: Physics published by D.C.Heath and Company
Date: 2016-2017 school year
Level: US G9 Common Core
Hours (week): 2
Prerequisite: Intermediate English
Instructor: Sophie Zhang
The course is a supplement to the Physics textbook. The course includes videos, experiments，discussions，quizzes, exams, which will help students learn physics and earn a better grade. The course effectively teaches all the concepts students need to know to improve grades for Physics (Common Core) and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
Textbook：Physics Principles and Problems
Upon completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
1. Students should be able to use the concepts to which they are introduced to facilitate knowledge and comprehension through memorizing and practicing and understand Investigations by applying.
2. Students should be able to understand and apply the concepts of the textbook covered as this will serve as the basis for a more advanced course of study in AP courses.
· Improve student’s understanding of Physics as an integrated study of the Engineering Sciences requirements.
· Improve student’s use of English language skills use Bloom’s Taxonomy for Engineering Sciences.
· Prepare students for the Common Core and Advanced Placement exams and undergraduate majors.
Teaching strategies will comprise short videos, experiments，group discussions, and individual exercises, and group activities, which will focus the following skills: list, recite, define, name, quote, recall, identify, label, recognize, describe, explain, paraphrase, restate, give examples of, discuss, interpret-clarifying, paraphrasing, and exemplify-illustrating, providing examples of concepts or information, summarizing information obtained from textbook, infer-concluding, extrapolating, predicting outcomes based on information presented, compare-contrasting, graphing, plotting, calculate, investigate and conduct experiments，etc.
