Roger S. King

Chair, Physics Department

B.S., University of Arizona; Ph.D. , University of California, Davis

Although learning physics is a lot of work, most students can find the study of physics to be a rewarding experience. This is true for "hard core science types", persons taking a general survey course, or someone just picking up a popular book on the subject.

Dr. King personalizes his strategies and goals for each student and for each course that he teaches. His overall objective is to keep the material interesting and relevant through the use of active learning and conceptual understanding.

His extracurricular activities include fly-fishing, reading and hiking.

Bachelor of Science, Physics w/ minor in Human Communications

Prof. Lim has been teaching at CCSF since 2013

My goal, today, is to make learning as fun and easy as it should be.
Education should be easily attainable for a diverse set of students and it shouldn't have to be considered a chore or obligation.

I am involved with different groups and hobbies, including improvisation, urban gaming, social dancing, and travel.

B.S. Ohio State University, M.S. University of California, Davis

After receiving a B.S. in mathematics from Ohio State University, Leilah McCarthy worked at Lawrence Berkeley Lab doing research with George Smoot's cosmology group before attending graduate school in physics at UC Davis. Areas of research included weak gravitational lensing and inflationary big bang modeling.

Ms. McCarthy has been teaching at CCSF since 2005.

Currently serving as the faculty adviser for the Physics Club

Annette Rappleyea

Physics Department

B.S., Purdue University; M.S., Ph.D.,University of Colorado

I see my role as a facilitator, teacher, and organizer. I mix traditional lecturing with interactive learning methods, allowing time in class for students to work together on problems and worksheets. I assign points for doing homework, completing worksheets and taking exams. I grade totally on points accumulated during the semester. I ask students to help each other, not compete against each other.

I have been a member and past chair of the Parking and Transportation Subcommittee for many years. I have also served on the Facilities Review committee. In addition I have worked on two NSF grants, developing interactive physics software for students to use in the classroom and published articles in The Physics Teacher and City Currents .

I enjoy sports, hiking, gardening, cooking and caring for my family, and visiting friends and neighbors. I also am active in the RC community.
