This Week's Focus: FINAL EXAM

THIS week, you will take your final exam. As a reminder, you MUST take your final at some point between May 10th @ 12:01 AM and May 11th @ 11:59 PM. You are allotted 90 minutes for the exam and it will count for 20% of your grade!

On Tuesday, May 9th @ 6:00 PM, we will have an Adobe session in my classroom. I will have time for you to ask questions in advance of our final exam.

This will be our FOURTH Final exam review! Remember, If you ATTEND these reviews LIVE, I will automatically ADD 2 points to EACH unit test covered during that review. If you watch the RECORDING and answer the I Spy questions from review, I will ADD 2 points to EACH unit test covered during the review! This week we are reviewing Optics and Nuclear Physics.

***You MUST have your I Spy ELO from this review turned in on the same day, May 9th, in order to receive credit.**

Final grades will be released May 18th.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me:
