Attendance, Participation and Citizenship
 You will receive a point each day for getting to class before the bell rings with all of your required materials (pencil, notebook, book, calculator, etc.) If you are not in class, or you are late to class without an admit you will not get the point. Absence due to school events will not count against you.You must learn to be responsible for success!
 You will also be graded on participation (asking questions, staying on task, participation in labs) as well as good citizenship (encouraging others, proper language, etc.)
If you want/need additional help:
I am available to help you before school at 7:45 AM. I may also be able to help you during my study hall period (8th), but you must check with me beforehand. You may also call me at home before 10 PM!

Principles of Technology
Principles of Technology
Course Overview
Description
Principles of Technology is a lab course in applied science that provides a better understanding of the basic principles of physics and the mathematics associated with them. This course is designed for the student who does not plan on going to a fouryear college, but may want to pursue a technical career. A student should have a firm grasp of algebraic principles and must be able to manipulate equations. This is a twosemester course. The first semester will deal primarily with forces and how they interact as well as principles of work. The second semester will deal with rates and resistance.
Textbooks used: Principles of Technology Force, Work, Rate and Resistance books published by CORD
Various lab equipment including labquest 2’s by Vernier
Topics covered:
1. Forces in mechanical, fluid, electrical and thermal systems
2. Work in mechanical, fluid and electrical systems
3. Rates in mechanical, fluid, electrical and thermal systems
4. Resistance in mechanical, fluid, electrical and thermal systems
What you will need:
1. A one inch three ring looseleaf notebook with five dividers and paper.
2. A scientific calculator.
3. A writing utensil.
Grading:
90% homework, quizzes, tests, labs, etc.
10% citizenship and participation
Notebook
Must be organized as follows:
1. Grade sheet keep track of all grades
2. Notes and outlines
3. Worksheets and homework
4. Quizzes
5. Labs
Citizenship and participation:
Each student will be given a point per day for being in class, on time and prepared with all necessary materials. Class participation will also be factored into this component of the grade.
