Essential Question: What is the fastest way to get from one side of the Earth to the other?

Ge

  1.  

Homefun (formative/summative assessment): Read section 7.2, do Section Review Problems 7, 11 p. 178.

 

 
Essential Question: What is a geostationary orbit and how is it used?

Os

  1.  

 

Homefun (formative/summative assessment): problems 15, 17 p. 185; 31, 33, 37, 51, 71 p. 190 to 193

 

Essential Question: How can you best prepare for the test?

Review of Objectives 1- 13 (1-3 days)

Formative Assessments:

  1. Work review problems at the board

  2. Work practice problems.

Metacognition Problem Solving Question: Can I still work the problems done in class, several hours or days later? Some amount of repetition on the exact same problems is necessary to lock in learning. It is often better to thoroughly understand a single example of a problem type than to work example after example understanding none of them completely.

Relevance: Good test preparation is essential to performance in physics class.

Homefun (formative/summative assessment): problems 81, 89, 91, 59 pages 193-194; problems turn in on the day stapled to the back of the test.

Summative Assessment: Unit exam objectives 1-16

Check out Articles by Mr. Rogers:

 
Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics is one of the most humorous, entertaining, and readable physics books available, yet is filled with all kinds of useful content and clear explanations for high school, 1st semester college physics students, and film buffs.

It explains all 3 of Newton's laws, the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics, momentum, energy, gravity, circular motion and a host of other topics all through the lens of Hollywood movies using Star Trek and numerous other films.

If you want to learn how to think physics and have a lot of fun in the process, this is the book for you!
