Physics 8-17-21 Measurements in Physics, Pt. 1

PHYSICS – Great job today with our SI system review! 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, dimensional analysis, sig figs, etc. We’ll finish reviewing measurements and the like tomorrow.

Beginnings

What a great first day! You’re off to a great start on a truly tremendous adventure. I’m so glad you’re in my class and that I’ll be able to share this adventure with you! Here is your assignment for tomorrow and for the next few days.

  • TODAY – Sign up for Remind. Follow the instructions on the Technology Overview sheet you got in class today. This sheet is also here on the website under the “Worksheets/Handouts” tab. (Your parents can sign up for this also.)
  • Read the class info sheet front & back – sign it and ask your parents to sign it (front & back!!!). Bring the Class info sheet to class by FRIDAY. You wil need it for an assignment in class. If you need an extra copy, the Class Info sheet is here on the website under the “Class Info” tab on the top left of this page and is also on PowerSchool Learning under Class Syllabus.
  • Enter your information in the form below. You may need to use the scroll bar on the right side of the form to get to the bottom of it. The form must be completed by 8:00 A.M., THIS Monday morning, but I encourage you to do it before then!
  • Check your syllabus daily to see what we are going to be doing in class this week, for homework, and for the due dates for class supplies!!

It’s Almost Here & I’m So Excited!!

I can’t wait! Summer has been great, but I am sooooooooo looking forward to seeing you and doing school with you!

Have you seen this? It is SO cool!! So, if you need a last minute summer project… Or maybe a project for my budding physics students?

Can’t wait to see you!!

Psalm 19: 1 -3, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.”

Physics – Your LAST Web Post Comment!!

PHYSICS: Can you believe it?!? This is your LAST web post comment!! This is where you put it and here are the three things I want you to talk about:

1) How did physics grow you? What did you learn about yourself?
2) What advice do you have for future physics students?
3) What could we have done different this year that would have helped you learn physics better?

Can’t wait to hear from you!! 🙂

Physics 4-23-21 Harmonics & Beats

PHYSICS: So why do instruments that are playing the same note sound so different? Here’s our discussion of harmonics and beats.

Speaking of discussion – what about the Tacoma Narrows Bridge? Could we add on to our explanation? Here’s a link, if you’d like to see it again: Tacoma Narrows Bridge
