UPDATE PHYSICS Week Ahead: 4/2-4/6

March29

UPDATE: Since several of you are missing for the ACT Tuesday, we will switch the lab to Wednesday, and complete the Pressure Lecture on Tuesday. I have linked my Prezi below. You should make sure you have the notes and problems for Section 3 completed to turn in on Thursday. I know some of you will be gone Thursday, so you need to get with me about your quiz and to pick up the reading handout before you leave.
Prelab Questions and Specific Problems due Wednesday (review Monday’s assignments)
Last thing, if you are taking the ACT and you have completed the problems and/or the pre-lab questions, bring them by my room after the ACT before you leave and I’ll give you some extra credit points. Obviously, I’m going to check your work, so if you slacked off and copy someone else’s work I will be able to tell. Several of you came by and chatted with me about completing your missed assignments, several of you did not 🙁

We will continue to study kinetic theory of temperature and look at specific heat and pressure. Make sure you are aware of upcoming deadlines for your Mousetrap Car Project. You can turn in your assignment early. If you know you are going to be gone make sure you have your assignments turned in by those dates otherwise it is late and points will be deducted.

**Extra Problems Rotational Dynamics Test Wednesday 7:40AM

***Make sure you have watched the “Kelvin” video on the playlist and take notes over it.
