Week 3:  18 September to 22 September 2023

18 September 2023:

In Class:  Thrown Balls and Free Fall Graphs.

Expectations:  Students will be able to solve for distance, average speed, and final speed in free fall problems.

Homework:  Pages 1:139-140 ( 45 – 52 ).  Study for Quiz on Section 1-1.

Lab 1b:
Collect data and review the Graphing with Spreadsheets Part b lab.

Expectations:  Students will identify the order of polynomial functions using a spreadsheet.

19 September 2023:

In Class:  Calculating Initial and Final Velocity, Acceleration, Time, and Distance.

• vf = vi + at
• vf = final velocity or speed
vi = initial velocity or speed
a = acceleration
t = time
• d = vi t + ½ at 2
• d = displacement or distance
vi = initial velocity or speed
t = time
a = acceleration
• Expectations:  Students will be able to solve for initial and final speed, acceleration, time, and distance.

Due:  Pages 1:139-140 ( 45 – 52 ).

Homework:  Pages 1:140-142 ( 53 – 64 ).  Begin Take-Home Quiz on Unit 1 Section 1 (pages 1:1 to 1:17).

20 September 2023:

In Class:  Solving for initial and final velocity directly from acceleration and distance

• vf 2 = vi 2 + 2ad
• vf = final velocity or speed
vi = initial velocity or speed
a = acceleration
d = displacement or distance
• Expectations:  Students will be able to solve for initial and final speed directly from acceleration and distance.

Due:  Pages 1:140-142 ( 53 – 64 ).

Homework:  Page 1:142 ( 65 – 69 ).

21 September 2023:

No Class:  Physics does not meet on Thursday.

22 September 2023:

In Class:  Scalar and Vector Quantities.  Minimum and Maximum Vector Sums.

Expectations:  Students will be able to explain the difference between scalar and vector quantities and to eliminate incorrect vector sums based on the minimum and maximum possible vector sums.

Due:  Page 1:142 ( 65 – 69 ).

Homework:  Pages 1:142-143 ( 70 – 77 ).

Note:  1st quarter ends 9 November 2023.
