Week of December 3, 2018

This is the second-to-last week before exams! Wow! The exam schedule is available at this link. AP Physics: Your exam will cover units 1-6 (and possibly 7). Physics: Your exam will cover units 1-3. Use your learning goal sets as your study guides.

This Week in AP Physics
On Monday unit 6 homework 1 is due along with the problem packet you received in class on Friday. (I’m not going to sugarcoat it. Homework 1 is one lengthy beast, so start early.) On Monday we will also finish the experiment we began on Friday. During the rest of the week we will explore rotational kinematics and torque. This will include homework 2 and possibly 3, more problem sets, and an experiment on rotational equilibrium.

This Week in Physics
Bring your books to class on Monday, because we’re going to have a blast doing unit 3 assignment 3
. Early in the week we will also wrap up our friction experiment. As the week progresses, please take notes on video 4, which covers inertia, when announced. We will complete assignment 4 and possibly progress to video 5.

Cool Science of the Week
NASA dropped something on Mars this week! Check out the video!
