Introduction to Forces
We took the unit 1 test today--enjoy your weekend :)
We started reviewing for unit 1 exam--see me for any missing WS
We started to go over free fall--the last topic for this unit.
Notes Freefall WS
We did the freefall lab using the ticker timers.
You have a unit test on Friday.
Quest deadlines as usual (11PM Tuesday+Wednesday)
Notes Freefall Lab
Quiz Week 3 was today...don't forget to finish your labs by Monday!
We went over analyzing velocity vs time graphs--specifically calculating area under them and what it represents.
The solutions are posted in the handout.
Notes Displacement from vt graphs with solutions
Today we went over the big 3 equations for accelerating motion. Please make sure you have completed all the problems in the handout by tomorrow.
Notes Equations Handout
We went over notes on velocity vs. time graphs and acceleration notes
Notes Acceleration WS
We conducted a lab today--acceleration lab. The lab is due next Monday, 9/25
QUEST due tmrw--might need to wait til after class tomorrow.
We went over solving constant velocity word problems. Quest Week 2 due tonight @ 11 PM. Quiz tomorrow.
Quiz covered everything so far: lab, motion maps, graphing, constant velocity, vectors
Notes Constant v Word Problems
We went over how to find velocity from position vs. time graphs.
1.) Instantaneous velocity
2.) Average velocity
Notes Velocity from x-t graph
We talked about adding and subtracting ONE DIMENSIONAL vectors today. We also went over a 'review' WS (interpreting position vs time graphs).
QUEST is due tonight @ 11 PM.
Notes Adding and Subtracting Vectors
Today we reviewed motion maps and went over notes on vectors.
Please read the first page of the vector notes handout. I put a notes sheet to help you with the QUEST assignment due tomorrow night. I apologize that we haven't explicitly gone over the material yet--this sheet will tell you everything you need to know.
I made a Remind.com page for our class--please join it
Notes Vector Notes
We reviewed graphing questions (slopes, areas, meanings, etc.) and went over a new topic: Motion Maps
Notes Motion Map Notes
We took notes on graphing and equation writing--things are a little different in this class compared to your previous classes. Please review your notes.
Your final report for constant velocity lab (attached here) is due next week Wednesday. You need to correct your graphs and answer questions.
Reminder: QUEST due tonight
Notes Constant Velocity Lab: Final Report
Today we worked on the Speed Buggy lab--see attachments for notes and handout. Students were asked to do two experiments.
#1: Independent Var: Time, Dependent Var: Distance
#2: Independent Var: Distance, Dependent Var: Time
Your two graphs are due tomorrow.
Notes Lab Handout
Welcome to AP Physics! Today we went over the syllabus and talked about the lab we will be doing tomorrow. Please have all your documents turned back in by the end of the week.
Homework in this class will be online--please make sure you complete this week's assignment. See the syllabus for more information.
Quiz tomorrow! We reviewed practice problems today.
