Unit 13 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: Wednesday, April 16 

Lesson
Plan:
Shortened Periods  Late Arrival (35 minutes)
 Organization  test comments, packets, introduce Unit
12
 Discuss
momentum and impulse  def'n, equation, units, vector; impulsemomentum

Homework:
 MOP 
Assignment M1
 Complete Lab M2


Announcements:
 The Momentum unit features several problem sets,
10 sublevels of MOP (we will do 7 of them), and as many
as 6 labs. Take charge of your learning
and it will be a successful unit.

 Ancient Chinese proverb: "The wise man completes the MOP assignments
at a steady pace; the fool hurries the work during the last minute."
 We
have discussed the impulsemomentum change theorem during the first
three days of the unit. The law of momentum conservation comes next.
