1. Wed, Sept 7

Chapter 1 (section 1.4)

Unit 0: Vectors

Introduction to the most one of the most essential mathematical skills for Physics 12: Vector Algebra in 2 dimensions. There is a quiz

NEXT CLASS (Fri, Sept 9 (1,2); Mon, Sept 12 (8)) on basic right triangle trigonometry.

2. Fri, Sept 9

QUIZ

Chapter 1 (sections 1.6, 1.7, 1.8)

Unit 0: Vectors

Expanding the concept of vector components in order to perform vector addition in 2 dimensions.

3. Tues Sept 13

White board group-work on vector addition. Vetorama Worksheet was given out. Practice! Speed is a factor. Adding two 2D vectors should take ~7 minutes.

4. Thurs Sept 15

QUIZ

Subtraction. Vector subtraction is best thought of as "addition of the negative". A-B = A+(-B). We know how to find -B, and we know how to add so there ya be. See the vector algebra worksheet and answer key.

5. Mon, Sept 19

Today was a work period to prepare for the year's first test! VECTORS.

Quizzes were returned.

6. Wed, Sept 21

TEST

7. Mon, Sept 26 (Start of UNIT 1: KINEMATICS)

Kinematics in 2D. You've been tested on adding vectors, now let's find out if you can apply that skill!

8. Wed, Sept 28:

Projectile motion introduction, focusing on horizontal launch.

9. Mon, Oct 3

More projectiles. Launch over level ground, and the general case.

QUIZ NEXT CLASS!

10. Wednesday October 5

QUIZ and Practice! Practice and Quiz!

11. Fri, Oct 7

Quizzes Returned.

Graphs of motion.

12: Wednesday Oct 12

Relative Velocity. Motion of objects relative to other moving objects. Included "The Subscript Rule".

See section 3.4 of the text book.

E N D o f K I N E M A T I C S

Test on Tuesday October 25.

12: Friday Oct 14 (START of UNIT 2, DYNAMICS)

Re-introduction to newton's three laws of motion. Included demonstrations of INERTIA, examples of the second law and third law.

13. Thursday Oct 20

More Dynamics! Review of 4 of the 5 simple forces in this unit, gravity, normal, tension and friction.

KINEMATICS TEST!!!!

15. Thursday Oct 27: Systems of Objects

We hinted at it with the second example done on Thursday Oct 20. Now we will formalise the technique for some typical applications.
