Welcome to Mrs. McElrath’s physics class! Physics is truly my favorite subject and I eagerly look forward to teaching you. This class is designed to guide you as you incorporate and apply science and math to better understand the world around you. I will reinforce all science concepts with the appropriate math needed for problem solving. You will master the applied problem solving with practice. (Yes, this means some homework.) I plan to offer practice problems in class before assigning homework. The physics concepts will also be reinforced through laboratory experiments and projects (time permitting). I believe that students learn best through a combination of lecture, problem solving, and laboratory experiences.
