    Hello Students and Parents,
    I hope all are well and practicing social distancing.  I will be sending out emails in the next day or so with details of work you can do to extend the learning we have accomplished this year.  I am sure you have a lot of questions, as we all do, but we will work through the rest of the year together.
    Aeroscience students: Since we are going to be out past the Rocket due date, the current new due date is May 12th.  Please update all timelines and share them with me.  Most of you have shared docs already. 
    We are in discussion with SystemsGo in Fredericksburg to see if moving the launch date to May 21-23rd is an option.  Trip would be May 20th and 21st.  Google Classroom activities have been shared to be completed.  
    Physics students: Please continue to research the Corona Virus as well as Electric circuits. I am glad we had some dicussions on this topic already to make you aware that this was coming.  
    For circuits please go to the power point Circuits: https://www.humbleisd.net/Page/96916
    and look at slides 8-12.  You should already have notes on slides 1-7.
    I have posted lessons on Goggle Classroom for the week of 3/27- 4/3.  Please complete these learning tasks and take photos of your work and post to Google classroom.
    I will have Zoom tutoring on Wed. 8AM and 12pm if you have questions how to complete these after you have watched the videos and read the information posted.  Please Read and Watch the given information.  All work to be completed by 4/3.  
    Please email me at the above email if you have further questions.
    Mr. Mascolo

    Spring Project Rocket in Fredericksburg, TX ROCKETS 2020 (May 2020 TBA)



    The class applies the principles of physics to designing and launching rockets.  This is a practical application of physics to help students develop an interest in science and engineering.  The class helps broaden students’ opportunities, and allows them to do things that they did not think they could do.  Students begin to display an increased self-motivation, leadership, and an enthusiasm for science and engineering. The goal of the aerospace science class is to build a rocket that travels one mile high carrying a payload weighing one pound. 


    Principles of Physics - COURSE DESCRIPTION

    Welcome to Principles of Physics. This is a class that builds a solid base of physics concepts.  The course includes extensive mathematical analysis of the concepts studied. Students are expected to analyze and extend understanding of the core concepts.  Additional enrichment topics are introduced but may not be covered in as much detail as core topics. Assignments may include formal lab reports and lab notebooks, creative analogies, research projects, student-designed experiments, analytical experiments, studies of scientific literature, analysis of teacher-performed demonstrations, and discussion of real-world problems.



    Students are expected to:

    • be curious!! Ask Questions!!!
    • commit time of independent study each day, preview material before it is to be covered in class as well as analyze it in detail after class discussion
    • wrestle with new concepts until thoroughly understood
    • obtain assistance whenever necessary to clarify material and to enhance understanding.
    • Develop techniques to review and study for tests
    • Demonstrate not only mastery of content but also ability to apply the concepts to new situations


    • notebook binder with paper, pens and pencil (can be shared with other classes)(Keep)
    • roll of paper towel and Red Pen *  4th Period
    • box of tissue and Red Pen*  6th & 7th Period
    • Extra Items: -  zip lock bags (box of gallon or quart) or 500 sheets of white printer paper
    • *turn into the box and check off your name by Thursday 9/1
