Modern Physics Test

AP Physics 1-1 and 1-2

Your test on the Modern Physics unit will be on Wednesday, June 7. 

  •  The link below has a practice test, which is optional. For the test, study practices 1-5, and the practice test.
  • There is also a list of things to know for the test.

AP Physics C

  1. Continue Working on Unit 2 Assignments, as follows:

Video 1 > Motion Assignment 1 > Video 2 > Motion Assignment 2 > Video 3 > Video 4>           Motion Assignment 3 > Video 4 > Practice Derivatives

Unit 2 materials can be found here.

Note: All of the grades have been posted in IC. Check to make sure you are not missing anything. Also, if you did poorly on the Unit 1 Test, and want to schedule a make up, see me soon.

AP Physics 1

  1. Warm Up
  2. Work on Unit 2 Assignments in this order: 

Video 1 > Unit 2 Assignment 1 > Video 2 > Assignment 2 > Video 3 > Assignment 3 

Unit 2 materials can be found here.

Note: All of the grades have been posted in IC. Check to make sure you are not missing anything. Also, if you did poorly on the Unit 1 Test, and want to schedule a make up, see me soon.

Rotational Motion Take Home Test

Over February Break, you need to finish the take home test that was handed out in class. It will be due the day we get back.

If you need a copy, you can print it out here. I will post the answers also. (You need to show me HOW to get the answers!)

There are a couple of corrections:

#1e should read “Which objects could be at rest (not moving either rotationally or translationally)”.

#5. Change “…What is the rotational inertia of the platform…”  to “…What is the rotational speed of the platform…”

Thursday, October 9

Note: I have decided not to test on the “Balanced Forces” Unit. I’m realizing that we have many different comfort levels with trigonometry and algebra in our classes, and need to practice more. I’m starting the “Constant Acceleration” unit. I will test “Balanced Forces” along with “Unbalanced Forces”, which is the unit following “Constant Acceleration”. 

AP Physics 1-1

  1. Warm Up – Inclined Planes
  2. Notes: Constant Acceleration Packet – Quantitative Motion Graphs
  3. Accelerated Motion Practice 1 – Complete and check answers. 

Materials for the Balanced Forces Unit can be found here. Materials for the Constant Acceleration Unit can be found here.

AP Physics 1-2

  1. Warm Up – Inclined Planes
  2. Notes: Constant Acceleration Packet – Definition of Acceleration, Qualitative Motion Graphs, Quantitative Motion Graphs
  3. Accelerated Motion Practice 1 – Complete and Check Answers.

Materials for the Balanced Forces Unit can be found here. Materials for the Constant Acceleration Unit can be found here.

AP Physics 1 Summer Assignment

The only summer assignment for AP Physics 1 is to make sure you are prepared for day one of class. You MUST come to the FIRST class with the following:

  1. A composition notebook
  2. A three ring binder.
  3. A Pen or Pencil (Probably a pencil, we do a lot of problem solving and graphing.)
  4. A scientific or graphing calculator.
  5. An alert mind, ready to learn.
  6. A willingness to work hard in class.

You should bring these to class EVERY DAY!

Castle Learning Assignments

For the Castle Learning Assignments:

  1.  Go to http://www.castlelearning.com and login. Your login is gcsd. followed by your first and last initial and your 6 digit ID (for example: gcsd.ab123456)
  2. If you don’t have a password, leave it blank, and you will be prompted to make one…
  3. You must do at least one assignment per topic. The topics are…One Dimensional  Motion, Two Dimensional Motion, Newton’s Laws, Momentum, Energy, Static Electricity, Current Electricity, Waves, and Particle Physics
  4. If you do more than one for a topic, I will give you the better of the two grades.

The assignments will be due on Tuesday, May 27.

 

 

Week of April 28 – May 2

This week we will be reviewing for the AP Exam. (Yeah!) You should get the following done by the end of the week:

1985 Part 2

1993 Part 1: (Omit 24, 25, 39, 40, 49) You must show work. No credit for just picking one of the multiple choice answers.

1986 Part 2.

 

You can do more for extra credit.

 

You can find these assignments on my website here: You will need the password given in class.
