Week of September 30, 2019

For your reference, there are eighteen days left in the quarter. Woot!

This Week in AP Physics
We will complete unit 3 with an exploration of Newton’s third law, some tremendously great problems, workbook pages, and a progress check. On Tuesday some workbook pages will be due, so feel free to start early. The pages are 33-34, 40-46, and 53-56. (The remaining pages will either be done in class after we cover the third law or will be skipped because they are horribly, viciously long.) Our unit 3 test will be Wednesday. Next up will be energy! Due on Friday: your formal lab report for the
Newton’s Second Law lab. Remember (please, for the love of all that is good in the world) to use the Lab Report Writing Guide and the Lab Report Rubric. Please note the statement in the writing guide: “When writing a lab report for physics, you will type your reports using Google Drive. All partners must write while signed individually into Google Drive, and there must be evidence in the revision history that partners contributed equally.” I will be checking the conclusions for evidence of equal writing/editing effort. Also there will be no rewrites this time. (Besides, I know you’ll do great on the first try anyway, champs!)
