Week of August 26, 2019

Please be sure to sign up for your class Remind. Join codes are in the previous blog post on the home page of our class website, sgbscience.com.

This Week in AP Physics
We will continue to work with the material you learned during the summer work by completing an experiment on Monday. Please complete the workbook up through page 22 by Tuesday. By the start of class on Wednesday please complete the unit 1 assignment online on AP Classroom. (The join code is in last week’s assignment blog on the home page of our website.) As the week progresses we will complete a second experiment on one-dimensional kinematics (unit 1) and will take the unit 1 “test.”

This Week in Physics
For Monday please take notes on the first lecture video (Video 1: Introduction to Displacement and Velocity) from the
unit 1 web page. We will go over these notes in class in an abbreviated way, focusing on extending and answering questions rather than re-doing the entire lecture. In other words, if you don’t take the notes from the video by the start of class Monday, you will be lost and confused, but if you do take them, you will get your questions answered and will have opportunities to deepen your understanding. Pro tip: Do not try to take notes on all of the unit 1 videos. We’re only covering the first video this week. As the week progresses we will tackle some practice problems and will begin our first experiment.
