Note on email addresses:
--Moodle cannot send email to hotmail.com, outlook.com and live.com
I am on their "blacklist" and I haven't been able to get off of it.  All other email providers seem to be OK.

Notes on Quizzes (Regular Physics only.  AP Physics may be different):
--You have ONE WEEK to take a quiz after it has been administered.  After that it's too late and you'll get a zero.
--You have ONE WEEK to do quiz corrections after a quiz has been returned to you.  Quiz corrections earn 1/2 credit for each problem that is re-done.
(This only apples to "real" quizzes, not to pop quizzes or reading quizzes.)

Notes on Moodle Grades:
--To get credit, you must score at least 3.7 out of 5.  Lower scores earn a zero.
--"Serious attempt" policy:  If I see that you got less than 3.7, but made a serious attempt, you can do it over for full credit.  Tell me when done.
--"Did YOU do it?"  policy for late work:  If I suspect that you had someone do an assignment for you, I might ask you to do some of the problems in front of me.  If you can't do them, I will tell you to do them in class after school.  BUT (good news), I will give you full credit for the work you do.  Also, in this situation I will try to help you do the work and learn the subject matter as you do it.
