Schedule Update

Next week we will continue with 2D motion / projectile motion. There are two labs with this unit.

You should be reviewing your notes so far, and looking at the problems in the second half of the packet. We will finish going over problem solving next week and then do those problems.

Have a great long weekend.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, both classes start 2 Dimensional Motion. This includes vectors, trigonometry, and Projectile Motion.

You should check out the following web sites as a preview and good overview of the topic:

Read over these pages, and the sub-sections.

Monday both classes will have a short quiz on 1D motion. You should review scientific notation as well as Packet 1.

We will have a quick review tomorrow, Friday, and you can ask questions before the quiz on Monday.

Email me with any questions over the weekend. (or ask your classmates :-) )
