Unit 9 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: Monday, February 10

Lesson Plan:
    • Comments/Introductions: Test, Unit, Packet, MOP Codes, Notebooks
    • Discuss The Atom, Charge, Charge Interactions; do p. 1 of Packet
    • Do Lab SE1 - Action at a Distance
    • If time allows: complete p. 2 of Packet

    Homework:

    Announcements:
    • This unit consists of about three labs, three reading sheets, about three 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.
