Unit 10 Schedule
2013-2014

The following schedule information was prepared at the beginning of the unit.  It is not fixed in stone. It's role is to serve as an organizational tool for students to find both required and helpful resources relevant to daily activities. The schedule is seldom updated as the unit progresses; if we fall behind, then topics or depth of topics will be reduced in order to keep the overall pace required to maximize coverage of the entire curriculum.

 Day 1: Tuesday, November 19 Lesson Plan: Organization: Test review, Notebook, Packet, MOP sheet; intro to Unit 19 The atom (p. 1, #1-4); charged vs. uncharged objects (pp. 1-2, #5-6); charging by friction (p. 2, #8-10) Do Lab SE1 - Action at a Distance Post-lab; discuss charge interactions (p. 3);  some 4-star demos Homework: Read Lesson 1 of Static Electricity Chapter MOP - assignment SE1 Announcements: This unit consists of as many as six labs, three reading sheets, several problem sets, and 12 sublevels of Minds On Physics. The unit is heavy with concepts in the early goings;  keep up with your MOP.  The unit turns heavy into the mathematics at the mid-point;  keep up with the problem sets. Online Help:
