2019-20 Physics / Engineering Class Syllabus

Mrs. Mariah Price                   

OHS Room 334                              Planning period: 9:00-9:45 a.m.

Grades and Assignments:

Grades are always available online and are updated weekly.   You may check with the counselor for your student login.

  • Daily points are given for participation in class discussions and activities.
  • Guest lectures will provide a unique perspective and learning opportunity.
  • Project performance grades are based on work done over the progression of the projects, both individual and group.
  • Final Project grades will be worth significant points and based on provided rubrics. 
  • Quizzes and/or tests may be taken with a variety of resources, including lab equipment, at conclusion of a learning segment. 

Good attendance will be imperative for success in this class.  Most grades will not be able to be made-up, turned-in late, or re-done.


Physics is defined as science that deals with the structure of matter and the interactions between the fundamental constituents of the observable universe. In the broadest sense, physics (from the Greek physikos) is concerned with all aspects of nature on both the macroscopic and submicroscopic levels.

Engineering is defined as the application of science to the optimum conversion of the resources of nature to the uses of humankind. 

The following is an excerpt from The Oklahoma State Department of Education’s Oklahoma Academic Standards document:

Science uses observation and experimentation to explain natural phenomena. Science refers to an organized body of knowledge that includes core ideas from the disciplines of science and common themes that bridge the disciplines. The Oklahoma Academic Standards for Science include standards for kindergarten through grade twelve. The standards are arranged by grade levels at Grades K-8, and by course subject area at the high school level. The Oklahoma Academic Standards include the integration of scientific and engineering practices with core content from Physical Science, Life Science, and Earth/Space Science. This integrated approach will provide students with a coordinated and coherent understanding of the necessary skills and knowledge to be scientifically literate citizens.

The specific standards for Oklahoma High School Physics may be found at the following web address starting on page 166:
