*We are entering the last two weeks of the quarter. Please be sure to finish strong. Also keep up with any absent or missing/late work.*

**This Week in AP Physics**

We will continue to analyze and solve complex dynamics/kinematics problems on Monday. The remaining guided readings for this unit are due on Monday, and the homework for this unit is due on Tuesday. (Note: I’ve added #50 to the list of problems. It’s a fun one. :)) On Wednesday/Friday we’ll complete the friction lab that was delayed by the PSAT training. Expect the Unit 3 test on Thursday.

**This Week in Physics**

* 3rd period:* On Monday we will take a quiz over vector resolution and then go over an introduction to projectile motion. For Tuesday please take notes on Podcast 9 – Introduction to Projectile Motion part 3, Podcast 10 – Projectile Formulas, Podcast 11 – Projectile Sample Problem part 1, and Podcast 12 – Projectile Sample Problem part 2. We will miss 3rd period on Wednesday due to the PSAT, so we will spend Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday analyzing and solving multiple projectile problems and then complete assignment 2 together in class, followed by a quiz, likely next Monday.

**For Monday please take notes on Podcast 9 – Introduction to Projectile Motion part 3, Podcast 10 – Projectile Formulas, Podcast 11 – Projectile Sample Problem part 1, and Podcast 12 – Projectile Sample Problem part 2. We will spend Tuesday and Wednesday analyzing and solving multiple projectile problems and then complete assignment 2 together in class, followed by a quiz, likely on Thursday. We will end the week by analyzing satellite motion.**

*6th period:***This Week in Astronomy**

For Monday as homework (due Monday) please complete this two-page assignment. You don’t have to print it and can just do it on a piece of your own paper if you choose. Unit 2 homework is due on Tuesday. On Monday we will do an activity regarding solar radiation and will complete the notes for this unit. This may spill into Tuesday, so we will have the unit 2 test on Thursday. Please remember that the unit 2 podcast is a great study resource. After the test we will begin our unit regarding the moon. You are also now ready to do the Unit 2 Outdoor Lab. This takes 2-3 weeks to complete, so start now. It is due on November 11. Summary of due dates:

Monday: ecliptic assignment

Tuesday: Unit 2 homework

Wednesday: No class

Thursday: Unit 2 test

November 11: Unit 2 Outdoor Lab (Start now.)

**Cool Science of the Week**

So apparently the whole regeneration thing Dr. Who does may not entirely be fiction. Check out these immortal jellyfish who can regenerate their dying cells…Sound familiar?
