Unit 8b 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.


Friday, September 27

Lesson Plan:
  • Collect MOP Codes
  • Introduce Unit 8b
  • Fnet = m•a with Vector Applications;  use pp.1-2 in packet
  • Discuss Equilibrium; do pp. 3-4, #2-4, 6
  • Lab VF2 - Getting Hung Up by Tension Lab

Homework:
  • Prepare for Unit 8a Test

Announcements:
  • FYI: Unit 8b has a short MOP module (~5 sublevels) and several short WebAssign problem sets. The unit will end in 7 days.
  • Have a good weekend.
