Homework for the Science Circles program is posted our online learning platform, Schoology. Students get access to this on the first day of class.

Homework will generally consist of mini labs or assignments with the online physics simulators. It’s possible that your teacher may deviate slightly from the general homework assignment depending on what the students achieved that day in class. If you see there is a mismatch between what’s posted online and what the teacher assigned in class, follow the teacher’s instructions. We encourage you to push yourself and attempt the posted homework as well.

In the classroom, not all the homework questions will get answered. Usually only the first 15 minutes of class is set aside to go over questions, so that the rest of class can be used to cover the next lesson.

Expectations

  • Students must create their own Schoology account, which is separate from any other account they have with Math Potentials.
  • Students are expected to check the online answer keys through their Schoology account before attending the next class.
  • Students are expected to attempt all homework problems, but not necessarily to complete them all. Sometimes there are questions that are extra challenging, and the teacher will explicitly say they are optional.
  • Students who regularly struggle with most of the assigned homework should talk to their teacher as soon as possible.
