August 27, 2013
Discussion of tools used in physics to help us be successful. An emphasis was placed upon 4 mathematical relationships we will be using in class. There is a good chance a quiz will be given on these next time in class. If you missed class, you will need to get the notes from someone. Began the Circle Lab. If you missed this, you will need to come visit with me.
August 29, 2013
We took a quiz on the notes taken in class on Aug 27. If you missed class today, then this quiz must be made up. We also finished the lab on circular relationships. If you missed the last part of this lab, then you will need to graph the data, determine the slope and calculate the percent error of your results. If you need help on this come see me during office hours and I can help you finish up the lab.
