# Weeks of March 16 through ? ;)

**Angels! Times have thrown us for a loop, but fear not! We will get through this together, and our learning will continue! Please refer to Google Classroom for all assignments, many of which will lead you right back… here! (Times have thrown us for a LOOP, get it?)**

# Week of March 9, 2020

**This Week in AP PhysicsThe remainder of unit 10 homework 3 is due on Monday. The third phase of the tremendously great problems is also due. (You had class time on both, so hopefully your homework is minimal over the long weekend.) On Monday and Tuesday we will explore capacitors and capacitance, and unit 10 homework 4 will be due on Tuesday. (Remember that your electric fields/electric potential lab report is also due on Tuesday.) Expect the unit 10 test on Wednesday. After that omg omg it’s one of my favorite units of the year: electric circuits! Yay!!!**

**This Week in PhysicsOn Monday we will finish momentum unit assignment 3 in class. Goal set 3 is due on Tuesday. We will also conduct an experiment on the impulse-momentum theorem. You will have a formal lab report to write for this experiment. (Details will be given in class.) Expect to take the momentum unit test by the end of the week. Next up: Our last unit on mechanics: circular and rotational motion!**

# Week of March 2, 2020

**This is a significantly shortened week due to the junior SAT and conferences. **

**This Week in AP PhysicsOn Monday we will complete our discussion of the electrostatics lab. A formal lab report will be due on Tuesday, March 10. (Be sure to use the lab report writing documents.) We will complete our introduction to electric potential and will begin capacitance. Expect a test during the week of March 9.**

**This Week in PhysicsOn Monday we will take a quiz over goal set 2. Please also take notes from momentum video 3 by the start of class on Monday. We will go through the impulse-momentum theorem and will begin assignment 3. Expect a test during the week of March 9. All resources may be found on our unit 5 webpage.**

# Week of February 24, 2020

**This Week in AP PhysicsWe will complete most of the remainder of our unit on electrostatics this week by covering electric fields, electric potential energy, electric potential, and capacitors. Yes! There will be notes. Yes! There will be tremendously great problems. Yes! There will be homework (yay!), and YES! There will be one of my favorite labs of the year! Woo hoo! Expect the unit test the week of March 2. (Yes! March!)**

**This Week in PhysicsOn Monday we will begin assignment 2 from our momentum unit and will then do goal set 2 and quiz 2 when announced. By the date announced in class please take notes on video 3, which will be followed by an assignment and a lab. Plan on a unit test the week of March 2 (March! So soon!) All resources can be found on our momentum unit webpage. **

# Week of February 17, 2020

This Week in AP Physics

We will continue to work through unit 10 on electrostatics with remaining notes, homework, problem sets, and a lab. Please complete homework 1 for Wednesday. Expect the unit test next week. Unit 9 test corrections are due on Thursday of this week.

This Week in Physics

Due to scheduling conferences, please do NOT take notes on video 2 for Tuesday. You will do this in class. On Tuesday we will complete goal set 1 in class, go over it, and take the goal set 1 quiz on Wednesday or as announced. As the week progresses we will examine lab data to analyze the role of kinetic energy in a variety of collisions and will complete assignment 2 from goal set 2. All resources can be found on our momentum unit webpage.

# Week of February 10, 2020

**Happy Valentine’s Day week! **

**This Week in AP PhysicsOn Monday we’ll take a test over our thermal physics unit and then will begin our exploration of electrostatics. (Shocking!) We’ll take notes, do tremendously great problems, a smidge of homework, and a lab, natch!**

**This Week in PhysicsWe’ll begin the week by doing assignment 1 from our momentum unit on Monday, so please bring your books to class. When announced we’ll take a quiz over goal set 1. By the date announced in class please take notes over video two from the momentum unit. We’ll also most likely get to a conservation of linear momentum lab this week. All resources may be found at the unit five webpage.**

# Week of February 3, 2020

**This Week in AP PhysicsWe will continue to work through thermal processes and the first law of thermodynamics with lecture, tremendously great problems, homework 3, and a lab. Following that we will begin to explore the remaining laws of thermodynamics with a special application to the function of engines. This will take us into next week when we will also take the unit test. Note: Your lab report on the behavior of gasses experiment is due at the start of class on Tuesday.**

**This Week in PhysicsOn Monday we will tie up loose ends in our energy unit and will test on Tuesday. By Wednesday please take notes from video one from unit 5. We will begin to move through this unit on momentum with assignment 1, goal set 1, and a quiz, and we will do a mini-lab on collisions as the week progresses.**

# Week of January 27, 2020

**This Week in AP PhysicsWe will continue to explore thermal physics by looking at methods of energy transfer, the kinetic theory of an ideal gas, and (just barely by the very end of the week) the laws of thermodynamics. Expect some tremendously great problems and a couple of nights of homework problems. Labs (and most likely the unit test) will be the week of February 3. That’s lit!**

**This Week in PhysicsWe will finish assignment 3 from unit 4 and do a short experiment on the law of conservation of mechanical energy followed by a quiz over unit 4 goal set 3. When assigned please take notes on video 4 from unit 4. We will do assignment 4 and will then take the unit 4 test, most likely by the end of the week. Yay! Links to all relevant materials may be found on our unit 4 webpage.**

# Week of January 20, 2020

**This is a shortened week as we take Monday to observe and appreciate the life and contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This week also marks the start of third quarter and second semester. Halfway, peeps!**

**This Week in AP PhysicsOn Tuesday and Wednesday we will complete our work on fluid flow and will take the unit 8 test on Thursday. Then from the cold of the early week we will heat things up alongside the weather forecast as we begin unit 9 on thermal physics. Caliente!**

**This Week in PhysicsWe will complete the formal lab report for the work-energy theorem experiment. As you write be sure to use the lab report writing guide and the lab report rubric to guide your work. Your reports are due printed (one per writing team) at the START of class on Wednesday. We will spend class time on Tuesday writing. Additionally, 11th period opted to take the **

**goal set 2**

**quiz on Tuesday, so please be prepared to take that at the start of class if you’re in 11th period. During the remainder of the week we will explore concepts and problems related to video 3 from unit 4 and will complete assignment 3 followed by goal set 3 and, time permitting, a quiz over goal set 3. Expect the unit test the week of January 27.**

# Week of January 13, 2020

**This is the last week of second quarter. Any missing work is due no later than Tuesday, January 14 (unless you were absent for multiple days this past week.)**

**This Week in AP PhysicsWe will continue to swim through unit 8 on fluid mechanics. The first book assignment for unit 8 is due on Monday. The second one will be due on Tuesday, but you should wait to start it until we’ve finished taking notes on Monday. We will complete two labs this week, one on mass density and the other on buoyancy. By the end of the week we will explore fluid flow. Expect the unit 8 test by the middle of the week of January 20.**

**This Week in PhysicsAll resources for this week are available on our unit 4 webpage. This week we will perform an experiment on the work-energy theorem. We will complete assignment 2 and take a quiz over goal set 2. By the date announced in class please take notes on video 3.**
