Make sure you pick an article you find interesting and that you understand!!
Make sure you pick an article that you can use to answer the questions on the Science In the News sheet. If there are questions you cannot answer with the type of article you have – pick another article!!!
The SItN assignment must be handwritten on notebook paper – you may write on the back
Check the syllabus for the due date for extra credit.
IMPORTANT #2: When you are finished today, put your laptop up in the correct slot and plug it in!!
PHYSICS – Wow, we finally made it to the official end of chapter 3! Do you realize how much you’ve accomplished? Awesome!
How’d you do with relative motion “revisited”? You know, you’ve done this already. The only new part is the motion of objects in the same direction and opposite directions, relative to each other. Don’t forget, you’ll use what you learned about vector addition to work those “boat goes across a river” and “plane experiences a head wind” types of problems.
Also included at the end – a look at one of the angular projectile homework problems – a baseball hit over a fence.
PHYSICS – So we are finally putting it all together – angular projectile motion! Here’s the lesson – some homework discussion and then angular projectile motion. Mic battery died in the middle of recording, so here’s a recording from a looooooooong time ago. I think you will find it helpful. Ahem.
The number one thing to remember – Never use the resultant velocity to do more than find the vertical and horizontal components! And vertical is vertical, horizontal is horizontal and don’t ever mix the two!
HON CHEMISTRY: More review today on chemical properties and chemical changes. Can you determine if a chemical change has occurred? And what about energy? How is that important in chemical changes? Let’s play with a chemical change tomorrow!
PHYSICS – Great job today!! You are on your way to conquering the component method of vector addition. So which do you like better? Give yourself a chance to get used to separating everything into x and y and it will click, I promise!
HON CHEMISTRY: So now that you know how to use all the tools we’ll need in chemistry, it’s time to start talking about ….chemistry!!
Were you able to able to make applications with the branches of chemistry and categories of scientific work? We’ll finish talking about the properties of matter tomorrow. Don’t forget the applications!
CHEMISTRY: Great job today beginning the journey of learning to write digital lab reports. Be sure and follow very carefully the directions in the Tech 101 Assignment sheet. Everything in the Tech 101 assignment is there to teach you something that you will need to know how to do to write up lab reports.
Two GREAT apps for your phone that will make your lab report writing life SOOOO much easier are the Google Drive app and Scannable (iphones) or CamScanner (android phones.) With the Google Drive app you can send lab photos from your phone directly to your drive and then insert them directly into your lab report. Huge time saver! With the Scannable app, you will be able to scan in your handwriting, calculations, etc., without having to use a scanner. So very helpful for this year – and I use it all the time in my every day life!!
For the future, here’s an overview of your workflow as you write up labs:
First, you’ll write your lab in Word or Google Docs, CAREFULLY following the Digital Lab Manuscript Form guidelines
Convert your Word document or Google Doc to a PDF
Upload the PDF to Google Drive in your Class Shared Folder
Instructions for using turnitin.com are on the Tech 101 sheet. If you already have an account you can use it – you don’t have to set up a new one. Here are the class codes – be sure and use the code for your class period!!
PHYSICS – Hey guys, great job today drawing motion with vectors – graphical vector addition, resultants, and the like. Have you done anything like this before?
A couple of super important things – GRAPH PAPER(!) and sketch it out before you start so you’ll know where to place the first vector with out running off the page. Also, graphical addition is adding vectors head to tail – then the resultant is found from the tail of the first vector to the head of the last vector. Get the direction by measuring from the tail of the resultant.
