Honors Physics: 10/22-10/26


This week we will study vectors. This unit will lead into our next unit of kinematics. Projectile motion. I know some of you are going to be gone on Tuesday and I will be gone Monday. You will have time in class to complete the NBC Learn activity titled “Vectors”. This assignment is to help with your understanding of vectors and supplement the notes handout you did over the weekend. The assignment is due Wednesday, when you come to class.

**You will turn in your Vector notes handout on Monday, look back to last Thursday for the assignment.
