This is the Physics 20 home page. Each unit will have its own page where you can get notes, homework assignments and lab materials including real data. It is strongly recommended that students have at least 65% in Math 10C. The following math skills are required for success in Physics 20:
- algebraic manipulation of equations
- trigonometric ratios
- properties of linear functions
- graphing linear and non-linear functions
If you are away for any time, it is your responsibility to get caught up. The textbook is an excellent source of information and practice problems. See the file Required Reading for suggested pages and problems.

If you miss a unit exam, you will be given an opportunity to write an alternate exam at the end of the course. If you miss a quiz, no alternate quiz will be given.
Labs are an important part of any science course. Your Physics 20 mark will in part be based on at least 1 lab per unit. Most of the mark for a lab will be based on how well you organize and analyze the data so it is possible to get a good lab mark with poor data. I will use a marking guide similar to this.
If you miss a lab, you are still responsible for the lab skills. Make sure you download the data file (real data collected by me) so you can complete the lab activity. You are still responsible for the lab skills even if you have a valid excuse for missing the lab in class.
If you are away for any reason, or if you need extra practice, make sure you read the Required Reading file. Click on the button below.
