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.

Physics Assignments Week of March 19, 2012

WELCOME TO THE NEW WEB PAGE! This is the inaugural post for this new site, which I hope you will find much more user friendly than our old site. Please feel free to send me feedback on it!

This week we will cover the nature of charge, conductors, insulators, methods of charging, and Coulomb’s Law. We will do homework 1 and homework 2 and do quizzes on each of those. We may begin electric fields by the end of the week.
