Week of January 28, 2019

This Week in AP Physics
We will continue our work with
thermal physics. Homework assignments, labs, and our tremendously great problems to solve will depend on how well we weather the energy transfer from our region of the globe to distant lands. This will set up an energy differential between Avon Lake and other parts of the world that can be assessed via any of the three temperature scales. *Nerd Life* Note: Stay in touch on Remind. If there are days off from school due to the weather, there will be online “blizzard bag” assignments for you to do.

This Week in Physics
On Monday we will complete
assignment 3 from unit 4. Expect a quiz over goal set 3 on Tuesday or Wednesday. As announced please take notes on video 4. This will be your favorite video of the year, no joke! If we miss any school days due to weather, please take notes on video 4, due on our first day back to school. Assuming we don’t miss any school this week, we will be taking the unit 4 test by the end of the week.

Week of January 21, 2019

School starts this week on Tuesday, as we have Monday off to honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This Week in AP Physics
On Tuesday we will complete our notes on fluid flow and will do some more tremendously great problems to solve including homework 3. Expect the unit 8 test on fluid mechanics on Wednesday or Thursday. Next in this cold month of January is our unit on HEAT!

This Week in Physics
On Tuesday the morning classes will take a quiz over energy goal set 2 (work and the work-energy theorem.) Because I don’t like to give homework over a long weekend we will take lecture notes in class on Tuesday over the content from energy video 3. However, what we don’t finish from the lecture will be due from the video by Wednesday. Throughout the remainder of the week we will complete assignment 3 and will possibly take a quiz over goal set 3 and/or complete the conservation of mechanical energy experiment.

Week of January 7, 2019

This is the final week of second quarter. Late assignments won’t be counted after Monday at 3:00.

This Week in AP Physics:
We will compete unit 7 and begin unit 8, so it will be a very fulfilling week! Here’s what’s happening: On Monday we will finish our unit 7 notes and will begin our Hooke’s Law lab. The unit homework is due on Tuesday when we will also finish our lab and the unit problem packet. Anticipate the unit test on Wednesday, although if we move it to Thursday expect to begin unit 8 on Wednesday. As we close out the week we’ll be flowing into fluid mechanics and will possibly dip our toes into a lab on mass density.

This Week in Physics
On Monday we will take the unit 3 test. This will be the last grade for quarter 2, so make sure you prepare. By the start of class on Tuesday please take notes on unit 4 video 1, Introduction to Mechanical Energy. In class we will complete
assignment 1. When announced please take notes on video 2 on the work-energy theorem.
