PHYSICS: Not sure if you’d ever find a fish on an elevator, but you sure could treat the problem like it was! Here another look at that problem, and then, a different take on forces – an application of horizontal forces, vertical forces, friction, all at once!

Wow! Amazing job solving these problems – can you now go see if you can solve them by yourself? God bless you as you study! I’ll be praying for you!

SNOW UPDATE – Help session and test are still tomorrow – unless by some remote chance we are out of school because of the weather. In that case, we’ll move everything to Friday.

]]>PHYSICS: Leaves gracefully falling – can you apply concepts from this chapter to explain? Practice, practice practice the problems, but don’t forget the conceptual stuff! Here’s our short look at some additional concepts.

How do parachutes work? What causes whiplash and how do seat belts work? If you get a chance, watch the Julius Sumner Miller videos on Newton’s 2nd law and 3rd law on You Tube. And also, here’s the link to the video clip I showed you on terminal velocity and the Physics of Skydiving I think they’ll all help a lot with the conceptual information

Tomorrow – one last look at the problems, and test Thursday!

]]>CHEMISTRY: Happy Monday! Here’s your assignment for Monday. Read the instructions below very carefully!! (If you have done this assignment already, do it again – but it’s different! The practice will be very helpful for you!!)

Today you’ll practice again on http://www.sciencegeek.net, but instructions for today are different. Today you will need to write the question, and then beside it, the correct answer, and you must turn in your work on notebook paper – but you only have to do 15 compounds correctly from each section. When you get 15 done correctly in each section, you may stop and go on to the next section. Skip a line between each compound. You may write on the back.

Go to http://www.sciencegeek.net, go to Chemistry, click on NEW Review & do the following. On your notebook paper, write the question, and then beside it, the correct answer. BE SURE AND CHECK YOUR ANSWER. This assignment will be graded for accuracy.

Label each new section, and skip a line between each question.

1)Â **Unit 3: Binary Ionic Compound Formulas** (Don’t forget that you DO have to put charges for the ions in the formulas when you show your work!)

2)Â **Unit 3: Ionic Compounds Involving Polyatomic Ions** (Don’t forget that you DO have to put charges for the ions in the formulas when you show your work!)

3)Â **Unit 3: Binary Covalent Nomenclature** (Don’t forget that you DO NOT put charges for the ions in the formulas when you show your work. Prefixes are the subscripts!)

You must have 15 correct answers from each section before you can turn in your work. The assignment is due at the end of the period. If you finish early, use your time to practice other things for the Ch 7 Pre-test quiz.

]]>HON CHEMISTRY: Happy Monday! Here’s your assignment for Monday. Read the instructions below very carefully!! (If you have done this assignment already, do it again – but it’s different! The practice will be very helpful for you!!)

Today you’ll practice again on http://www.sciencegeek.net, but instructions for today are different. Today you will need to write the question, and then beside it, the correct answer, and you must turn in your work on notebook paper – but you only have to do 12 chemical formulas/naming compounds correctly from each of the first three sections below and 2 empirical formulas problems from the last section. When you get the set amount done correctly in each section, you may stop and go on to the next section. Skip a line between each compound. You may write on the back.

Label each new section, and skip a line between each question.

Go to http://www.sciencegeek.net, go to Chemistry, click on NEW Review & do the following. On your notebook paper, write the question, and then beside it, the correct answer. BE SURE AND CHECK YOUR WORK. This assignment will be graded for accuracy.

Next, go to http://www.sciencegeek.net, go to **AP Chemistry**, click on Review & do 2 problems in the following section. On your notebook paper, write the question, and then underneath it, your work and the correct answer. BE SURE AND CHECK YOUR ANSWER. This assignment will be graded for accuracy.

4) ** Chapter 3: Stoichiometry** – Finding Empirical Formula from Mass Percent (Be sure and include units!!)

The assignment is due at the end of the period. If you finish early, use your time to practice other things for the Chapter 7 Test!
