Physics 1-23-19 Torque & Rotational Equilibrium

PHYSICS: Awesome job with torque today!! So how’s the balance in your life right now? πŸ˜‰

Homework UPDATE: Move Wednesday’s homework to Thursday, but make these changes. Pg. 264 – 268: 30, 33 – 35, 38, 42, 54 AND Torque II WS (Note that is Torque II worksheet)

Physics 1-11-19 Collision Homework

PHYSICS: Here’s a new way to study collisions! Somebody’s having way too much fun with veggies!

How are you doing with last night’s homework? Here’s our look at some of the conceptual questions and a look at setting up some of the homework.

Are you ready to crank it up a bit? Here’s a hint – check for connections between the conservation of momentum and the conservation of energy. You can do it!

Physics 1-10-19 Collisions Problems with Energy & Bouncing

PHYSICS: Great job on the problems so far!! Here’s our look how kinetic and potential energy get involved – dart in the block of wood and the bird on the swing. This cute little bird isn’t on a swing, but he is one I came beak to nose with on a mission trip to Costa Rica!

What about even more practical applications? Light bulb? Questions??

Physics 1-9-19 Collisions

PHYSICS: Collisions – they’re all around us and they all obey the law of conservation of momentum. Great job on setting up the problems in class today – now on to working them tonight! Check for connections between the conservation of momentum and the conservation of energy. πŸ™‚

Physics 1-4-19 Impulse-Momentum Theorem

PHYSICS: It’s a Marshmallow Blow Gun shoot off! Great way to begin second semester! πŸ™‚

And wait – so that’s why you need good running shoes! Here’s our discussion from today on the intro to momentum and the impulse-momentum theorem. Did you understand the relationship between force and time? Let’s see if you can put it to practice Monday!

Have you looked at the syllabus? It may be really important – especially as pertains to future endeavors! πŸ˜‰

Happy New Year 2019!!

Science Exams First Thing Thursday – December 13

Awesome job with review today! God bless you as you study for your chemistry, honors chemistry, and physics exams! How are you studying? Best advice? Practice, practice, PRACTICE! Be active in studying – don’t just read over the material. Review games on the online textbook, reworking old homework problems, re-working those flash cards you’ve made – all good. Watching vodcasts of old lectures might not hurt either!

Chemistry Exam Help Session Thursday morning, 7:00 A.M.

IMPORTANT – Bring your exam review packet (and textbook, if you checked one out) to the chemistry room before you go to your exam room!

Here are the room assignments for Thursday’s exam:

Chemistry 1 Rm. 302 (Mr. Henton’s room)
Chemistry 2 Rm. 303 (Mrs. Tapp’s room)
Chemistry 3 Rm. 304 (Coach Henderson’s room)
Chemistry 4 Rm. 307 (Mrs. Berryhill’s room)
Hon Chemistry 6 Rm. 301 (Ms. DeFrehn’s room)
