Physics 8-12-13 Using Measurements in Physics, Pt. 1

PHYSICS – Hey guys, here’s part 1 of the overview we did on the SI system. 22 out of 90 slides isn’t bad, is it? 🙂

You remembered a lot! Were you surprised at yourself? The hardest part, I think, will be getting back in the habit of showing all your work, using conversion factors, units, sig figs, etc. We’ll finish reviewing sig figs tomorrow. Happy, happy!

Hon Chemistry 9-1-11 Conversion Factor Problems Review, etc.

HON CHEMISTRY – Hey guys, guess what I found – will it help you in working problems? Here’s an old review of a few harder/different conversion factor problems and a percent error problem snuck in at the end. Good luck as you begin studying for the test – did you remember that it’s just a week from today?

BTW – go to Edline and look under “Tests” and you might find something that will help a lot as you begin to study. Yes, it’s time to begin studying; no, it’s not too early. And if you need extra practice on anything, don’t forget the help session tomorrow morning! Make a list tonight of the problems you need help with or questions you have. See you tomorrow!

Chemistry 9-1-11 Conversion Factors

CHEMISTRY – Great job with conversion factors today! And thanks for being so patient with the computer and its operator! I’m posting a lecture from last year so that hopefully it won’t have as many interruptions and complications. How’s the homework going? Make sure you practice using your notes tonight, it’ll help you remember the steps we followed today in class. You’re doing great!

Hon Chemistry 8-31-11 Conversion Factors

HON CHEMISTRY – Hey guys! So how fast would this be in Guatemala? Did you feel like you were in a foreign language class today? Good job on using conversion factors! I know you’ve worked these problems in your math courses, make sure you learn to work them using the Q formula!!
