Physics assignment

After reviewing your portfolios today, you will go to the computers in your normal groups and go to
"Multimedia Science School" in the Novell screen.

Then Physics - Fields - Motion in a Circle - Lesson - Circular Motion

We will be starting this unit on Friday, so this is a chance for you to get started on learning the material.

As you go through the lesson, note the new things you have learned in your notebook, along with any new equations for circular motion.

Test coming up! Time to study!

Test next week!

Period 2, 7 - Tuesday
Period 3, 5, 6 - Wednesday

You will be provided with a list of the equations.

You should be reviewing Packets 3 (Forces), 4 (Momentum), and 5 (Work and Energy)
Try each of the problems again without looking at the solutions. Then check your answers and use the solutions to help you if you didn't get it correct.

Some sites to go to for review:
Work and Energy:

Come in to class on Monday with any questions you may have on these topics. I will answer questions, but I will not just do a "review".

Student Access to Power School

Students now have access to PowerSchool. You can check your grades and attendance very easily. If your teacher uses the Gradebook (like I do) you can see individual grades and even check if you are missing any work.

Login is done just like you are logging into a school computer.

Here is the link:

Make sure you also check to see if there are any "CUTS" that should be "EAB" (excused absence) and get a note from your parent or have your parent call the school.

Algebra Help

Since I know many of you struggle with algebra (not necessarily your fault either!) I thought I'd post some resources to help you. is a great site that has mini lessons for you to learn more about different parts of algebra. It is broken down by topic. - site for the math department for Bridgeport. It has some great information and resources for you to review and reinforce math concepts. - Physics math review - great resource for help with math in physics. - has some problem solving help in each section that will help you with some of the algebra.

And of course you can always ask me for help. Do not hesitate to come after school or email me for help. Do not wait until it is too late.
