Physical science is a high school level science class that covers the basics of physics and chemistry. Ms. Sider teachers her physical science class by the modeling method, so we will be looking at lots of demonstrations and doing lots of experiments this year. We will challenge ourselves and have fun learning science. On this page, you can find the answers to important questions about Ms. Siders class and the links to important documents.

Question 1: What do I need for this class?
In addition to working on our scientific knowledge in this class, we will be working on our organizational skills. The following are the required materials for this class.
A separate binder
No, you may not have a section in another binder. This binder can live in Ms. Sider's Classroom.
Pens or Pencils
Loose Leaf Paper
Other Useful Materials:
Colored Pencils/ Markers/ Crayons
Question 2: Where can I find work for this class?
All work for this class will be posted on our class Canvas page. This page can be reached by logging in to your NcEdCloud account and clicking on the canvas tab (it is a red icon with a capital "C")
If you are absent, there will be a copy of the class work in our class drawer with your name on it.
This class will be based on a modeling curriculum, so we will often be looking at demonstrations and taking notes on them. If you are absent and need help, please come see Ms. Sider after school.
Question 3: What are Ms. Sider's expectations?
Be present. This does not only apply to attendance (although that should be a priority!!!). When you are in class, you should be actively engaged in order to get all the material. Your input is important because you are a valuable part of our class community.
Be engaged. Both in and outside of the class you will need to engage with the material in order to understand it. Do your homework, take advantage of outside of class opportunities like review sessions, and give it your best effort.
Be open. Communicate with Ms. Sider about what you like or don't like about the class. If you are having issues or need an extension on something you should reach out sooner rather than later! Trust me, Ms. Sider is a reasonable person, and is willing to help.
