11th Physics Syllabus and Schedule (2017-18)          September 5, 2017           Tohei Moritani


1. Course Description
   This course is basic level physics that required for all the high school students in US and Japan.  A key goal of this course is to let students understand basic concepts in physics and solve quantitative problems.  For this purpose, the curriculum includes laboratory experiments and writing reports as major activities in addition to lectures, demonstrations and examinations.

2. Packets and Textbooks
   Textbook povided must be used in class and also for preparation and review. Packets are alsogiven to students that include typical examples of problems to be solved together with illustrations and graphs.  These packets are designed to motivate students and help them clarify what they are required to understand and solve. 

Walker               

3. Language
  Lecture will be performed in Englis orally with technical terms written in English and Japanese on the board.  Problems in the packets, exams, mini-tests and quizzes will be written in English.

4. Labs and Lab Reports

  1. Labs are carried out as major and essential activities basically every week in double-period classes.
  2. Students must submit lab reports written in the formal scientific style, typed or handwritten, in Japanese or in English, within a week after each lab.

5. Website
  Physics class’ own website includes all the necessary information for studying; such as, class schedules, examples of lab reports, solutions of tests and exams.  The site can be accessed through KANYOS.

6. Grade
  Grade will be calculated as follows:
Exams, Tests and Quizzes                    55%
Labs and Lab reports                          35%
Class Participation                              10%
