PHYSICS – Happy first day of December! Great work on the problems today! I think it was a good idea for us to regroup and make sure you had the work-energy theorem down before we move on to the last part of the chapter tomorrow. Are you still trying to follow formulas, or are you starting to be able to think through the problems and and begin to make connections?

Be careful – don’t just start grabbing formulas and throwing in numbers. Make sure the formulas make sense – ask yourself every time why it makes sense for you to put that particular number in that particular part of the formula. And work them over and over and over until it comes naturally to you!

This means that the homework for tonight is changed. You have one final review worksheet that will be due next Tuesday. I scanned and linked a copy for you here – it’s two pages. Start with the questions and problems that are circled – I may add more to the list later. Chapter 5 Review Worksheet 2
