Introduction into the world of physics. Various demonstrations and histories of physics. No work was need for today.
August 22, 2013
Continued our introduction to the world of physics. Assigned seating, discussed disclosures and class fee. If you missed class, you can download the disclosure from the above file. Began an introduction to speed. Started a lab using dominoes. If you missed class, you will need to download the disclosure. You will be able to catch up on the lab next class period
August 26, 2013
We took a quiz from the last periods notes. This did not count but was meant to familiarize you with how the quizzes will be given. Finished up and turned in the lab on speed using domino's. If you missed this lab, you will need to type a one page paper on speed. Be sure to include a separate page that lists your bibliography,

We introduced the Physics Classroom web site and how we will begin to use it this year. It is located at the following site http://www.physicsclassroom.com/ Once you are on the page, look at the options on the left side of the page and click on the Physics Tutorial. These are the pages I will have you reading at home in preparation for class work. Today we did 1-D, Lesson 1 a,b, and c in class. You will need to read and take notes on parts d and e for a quiz in class on Friday. We also took notes on distance and displacement and completed a worksheet. "Describing Motion Verbally with Distance and Displacement". If you missed class, the worksheet can be downloaded from the following site: http://www.physicsclassroom.com/curriculum/1DKin/1DKin1.pdf

Today we took a reading quiz on the material assigned on Aug 28th. We also corrected the assignment that was assigned on Aug 28th and turned this in for credit. We discussed String theory today and watched 40 minutes of a video. If you missed class today, you will need to get a copy of the notes from someone in class as this information will be on our first test.
September 4, 2013
The class discussion focused on Position Time graphs and how velocity is found from these graphs. If you missed class, then get the notes from someone in class and download the following assignment which should be completed by Wednesday September 6th
September 6, 2013
There was a quiz given on class notes from September 4th. We did a lab on calculating velocity of various races. If you missed class, you will need to make up the quiz and type a one page paper on Velocity. You must include a separate page that lists the bibliography.
September 10, 2013
I gave out progress reports so you could see if you were missing any work. You should be looking at skyward and making sure you are up to date on all assignments, quizzes and labs. we also reviewed for the test which will be given on Thursday. You cannot use phones during the test so you really should bring a calculator. We reviewed in class and completed a review worksheet. If you missed class, you need to visit me to get this review sheet. You will be allowed to use any notes you have taken on the test, but no assignments.
September 12, 2013
Test in Class today
September 16, 2013
We will go over the tests that were taken last class period. Class discussion today centered on what happens if the velocity of an object changes. Homework was a worksheet on Acceleration. If you missed class, you can download the assignment from the following link:
Do Problems 1-8 only
Do Problems 1-8 only
September 18, 2013
Continued our discussion on Kinematics. Free fall Lab. If you missed class today, you will need to type a one page paper of Free Fall. You must include a separate page that lists your bibliography. We also completed a Kinematic Problem Worksheet. You will need to down load the assignment and complete it.
September 20, 2013
We corrected last periods assignment. We completed a lab in class. If you missed the lab, you will need to type a one page paper on gravity and free fall. You must include a separate page that lists your bibliography. We also watched some more of the Elegant Universe DVD.
September 24, 2013
Began with a quiz on notes from September 18th. Class discussion on Free Fall Kinematics. Lab on Reaction Time. If you missed class, you will need to make up the quiz, write a one page paper on Reaction times, include a separate page that lists your bibliography.
September 26, 2013
Review of kinematic problems solving techniques, variables, and gravity.. An assignment was passed out and is due next class period.
September 30, 2013
Today we reviewed for our next test which will be held on Wednesday, October 2, 2013. This test will cover mostly acceleration and kinematics. We did a review assignment in class. If you missed class, you will need to see Mr. Morrill to get the Review Assignment.
October 2, 2013
Test on Acceleration and Kinematics
October 8, 2013
Today we went over the test. Students were allowed to make up some of the points they may have missed by checking out a physics book from the library and completing 2 problems at the end of chapter 2 for every question they missed on the test. This allowed a make up of 1/2 of the points missed on the test.
October 10, 2013
Mr. Morrill was gone today. We watched the 2nd episode of "The Elegant Universe", String Theory. Notes were taken and turned in for credit.
October 14, 2013
Class discussion on Projectile Motion. Notes were taken in class and turned in for credit. If you missed class, you will need to take notes in class next time and show them to Mr. Morrill for credit.
October 16, 2013
As a result of the short class periods due to testing today, today you were allowed to work on any missing work and turn it in.
October 22, 2013
