PHYSICS Week Ahead: 9/18-9/22


We will begin our study of Kinematics this week. The Domino Lab went well last week and I think ya’ll may have the steadiest hands in Roughneck Physics history. Way to go!

*Remember your Domino lab is due to me at the beginning of your class period. You should have your table and graph completed with your 5 data points and my data points AND your conclusion completed. You will turn in your procedure, table, graph, and conclusion into me on Monday.

**Extra Problems for the Scientific Method/Dimensional Analysis test will be Wednesday, 9/20 at 7:40AM in my room. I encourage all of you regardless of your test score to do the extra problems. Every little bit helps. You must be in my room before 7:40 or you will not be allowed in.

PHYSICS Week Ahead: 9/11-9/15


This week we will conclude our discussion of the scientific method, and review of dimensional analysis. You all have a good grasp of both topics based on your efforts in class. Let’s finish out this unit with strong performances on the test scheduled for Tuesday.

On Wednesday we will start our discussion of Kinematics by being your first inquiry lab on falling dominoes. You have a notes assignment due on Thursday. First complete the NBC Learn activity and then go to your textbook and read pages 38-52, adding information to the questions I posed as needed. It seems like a lot of pages but there are several pages of example problems and sections review problems, so it isn’t too bad. You can bring this assignment to class on Thursday or send it to me through google docs. double check my email address: [email protected]
