PHYSICS Week Ahead: 11/27-12/1


This week we will begin our study of Sir Issac Newton and his laws of motion. The past several weeks we have been using kinematic equations in both one-dimensional and two-dimensional motion. Now, we will look at a more conceptual approach to physics with balanced and unbalanced forces. There will still be some “plug and chung” but some of you will find the math to be simple compared to what we have been doing. We have a final push to finish the semester. Stay focused and finish strong. Some of you have worked really hard, but there is still time to catch up.

I recommend watching the videos on the playlist as a supplement to our class discussions. Good info and Good review material. Newton’s Laws Playlist

Anatomy Week Ahead: 11/27-12/1


The Smallpox case study questions (#1-8 with question 8 being 1 paged typed response) are due Monday 11/27 as well as your 1 case study disorder over lymphatic system disorders. Here is a hint for your case study: Think Lupus, Allergy, Cancer? IBS or Chrons Disease. We will begin our study of the integumentary system (aka the skin) this week. This will be the final unit for this semester. We will cap off this study with a suturing activity you will enjoy. We will also learn about the appendages and structures of the skin, rare and unusual disorders, cancer, and burns. We will also learn about transdermal drug delivery, an effective method of delivering certain medications, the tattooing process, and how your wounds heal. Lots to learn and do, and I know we are all itching for some Christmas movies, cookies, time off! Get your study group schedule planned 😉
This week we will do a Ted ed lesson, so if you don’t remember your account or you don’t have one look at the following handout to sign up. You will need to sign up and create your account by Thursday or you will not be able to submit your work.

We will continue our discussion of projectile motion this week. We will be combining horizontal motion and vertical motion to describe and predict them motion of an object. This is major life hack material. Now, you will have a better appreciation of the realism of stunts in action movies, think Taken and Fast and Furious, and of course you will be able to jump creeks and launch potatoes with more accuracy.
