Intro to physics

This is a new Unit for all of us (me too!). ┬áSome of this I’m putting together as we go along so this post will be updated with activities and notes as we progress through the unit.

We started with notes on establishing how we talk about the motion of objects and defining scalar vs. vector quantities.

The notes are below

Next we had an activity where we explored these concepts and watched a Crash Course video about linear motion:

And on the third day of class we had a brief quiz and then started notes on accleration:

one of my favorite accelerators: the white zombie from Portland

3/15: Well I loved acceleration so much I had to do more here’s our lecture for the end of the week!

The Acceleration “quiz” assignment is here: answer all questions to the best of your ability, ┬ácheckout the cheat sheet on the last slide!

We’ve finished with describing motion and started with what causes motion: the force! After Spring break we will cover Newton’s 3 laws. we’ll do some reading in the text in case my yapping at you doesn’t do the job!

The Last set of notes for this unit! Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion!
