Class Experience

Students will get a better understanding of how energy and the universe work at the nuclear level. This course will challenge learners to think and will learn what happens both when scientists don't pay attention, and when scientists attempt to harness the power of the sun.
Certified high school science teacher with 7 years experience teaching physics in a public school.
Each week I will provide a practice activity that corresponds with the weekly lesson. The assignment will likely require some research, some calculations, and some critical thinking.
Handouts will be provided each week. There will be calculations, so students will likely need a calculator.
Students will be given a multiple choice quiz at the end of the week. Grades for the quiz and other weekly assignments will be provided upon parent request.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will discuss the making of the atomic bomb during WWII, and the aftermath of the bomb, as it relates to radioactive waste and decay.
