Is there anyone good at Physical Science 1-1415

I have some work materials to be done in this class, its like lab work, but needs to be done is Simulations part, At-home activities part ,and the video assignments part. I will try to upload the syllabus too. to give a brief if necessary. Once you click on the link i upload to you, you will see something that say course content (bluish highlighted) click on it and there you will see the course work listed…  the textbook is listed in the syllabus but its called Conceptual physical science fifth edition, but i really need this done september the 27, 2013 at 12 a.m. central time on my end.

Netiquette Expectations: Sensitive discussion topics will be brought up in this class,
so please think carefully before responding. Keep these guidelines in mind:

Standards of courtesy and respect must be maintained at all times in our online
“classroom.” Join in to the discussion, but remember that this is still a “classroom”
setting and that respect and consideration are crucial for any intellectual

Discussion areas are the place for intelligent and respectful airing of ideas. Name-
calling and personal attacks are not permitted.

Any violation of the standards of appropriate behavior online will be reported to the
Dean of Students and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken by the college.

A good rule of thumb is that you should never post a response online that you would
not be willing to say in person. Once the course begins, please use your Blackboard
communication tools to contact Professor Brooks.

Course Resources:
Textbook: Conceptual Physical Science with MasteringPhysics,
5th Edition, Authors: Paul G. Hewitt , John A.
Suchocki, Leslie A. Hewitt, ISBN-10: 0-321-80418-X

The textbook may purchased in the Collin College bookstores
or online at:the Publisher’s Store.

This course uses the 5

edition packaged with

MasteringPhysics, an online homework system. Be sure your

purchase includes MasteringPhysics! The best purchase
option is the “a la Carte plus Mastering Physics” package

($115.93 online). You will be unable to complete your

chapter assignments or exams without access to


If you order the textbook online, you will receive immediate access to MasteringPhysics which
contains the entire textbook in electronic format (ebook). You will receive the physical
textbook in the mail in about a week.

Your student assignment account information (registration code) is included with textbook
purchase. Assignments are accessed at Upon start of class a
MasteringPhysics course ID will be posted in Blackboard which is required to access
assignments for this course.

Supplies: You should have a scientific calculator and computer with internet access. A
scientific calculator can perform functions such as scientific notation and order of operation
and can be purchased for around $10. You will be performing several at-home lab activities
which use common household items such as a measuring tape, kitchen scale, stopwatch,
cups, etc. You may find it necessary to purchase or borrow a few low cost items that you do
not have.

Attendance Policy: There are no on-campus meetings for this course.

Method of Evaluation: Course averages will be calculated as follows:
Homework Problems 30 %
Simulation Labs 20 %
At-Home Activities 15 %
Discussions 15 %
Video Assignments 5 %
Tests (3 exams) 15 %
100 % possible

Grades will be determined as follows:
90-100 = A 80-89 = B 70-79 = C 60-69 = D 0-59 = F

The homework problems and exams will be delivered and graded through MasteringPhysics
(grades will be immediately available upon submission of assignment or exam). Students
will complete worksheets for the simulation labs and at-home activities and email the
completed worksheets to the instructor. These will typically be graded within one week. The
discussion grade will be based on the level of participation in the class discussions. One or
two discussion topics will be posted every week. Students are expected to provide feedback
on each discussion topic and must post at least one response to each topic to receive full
credit. The video assignments consist of watching several physics and chemistry videos and
completing a worksheet over each video.

All class grades will be available through Blackboard. Instructor turn-around time for email or
discussion postings is typically 24 hours or less during the week, a bit longer on weekends.

Course Calendar: Course requirements include homework problems, simulation labs, at-
home activities, discussions, video assignments and three major exams.

Homework Problems: Will be completed in the MasteringPhysics online
assignment system. There will also be questions assigned to chapter videos
available in MasteringPhysics. These video lectures have been created by the author
and cover all the chapter concepts.

Simulation Labs: Consists of interacting with online simulations and completing the
corresponding worksheets.

At-Home Activities: To provide hands-on experience, students will utilize common
household materials to explore physical phenomena. Students must choose at least

six of the available at-home activities and complete the corresponding worksheets.

Discussions: Questions have been developed for each chapter, and these will be
posted for discussion during the week students cover the corresponding chapter

Video Assignments: Involves watching several online physics and chemistry
videos throughout the semester and completing a video worksheet for each.

Exams: Three major tests will be given. These will be completed in the
MasteringPhysics online assignment system.

Assignments that correspond to each chapter should be completed as listed below.
