SparkNotes for Physics

SparkNotes is a great site for students to use. It is like CliffNotes, but most of it is free.

This is the page that has Physics information and study guides on it. It's a good resource to use when you need help with a physics topic.


Both Period 1 and Period 2:

Homework - Forces Packet (4) - do problems 12-21 (finish the packet).

We will go over the homework next class and then start the Forces Labs.

I think there may have been some information missing from number 4 on the homework. I don't have it home with me, so I can't double check. If you can't solve #4, don't panic.
