Unit 11 Schedule
20132014
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.

Homework:


Announcements:
 We are now approaching the last half of the
unit; much of what we do for the remainder of the unit will be out of this world
(so to speak). We will learn some concepts of gravitation and then
combine it with circular motion principles to understand orbital and
satellite motion.
