Posted: May 24, 2019

*There will be a unit test next week (Wednesday - tentitive)

 

note: If you have a computer at home it may be easier tpo open thye earthquake file and read it from there as everything would be in order.

 Monday -  Mountains & volcano.

          - Complete p 340 (2,3 &4) from Friday if not completed yet.

Read p 326 - 329 :volcano

Read p 334-336 :Mountains

p 336 (1 & 2)

 Define Mountain & volcano

Exam Date : Monday June 10

                8:30 am

Exam Location : C 103 (MY CLASSROOM)

 

Formulas will be provided. The sheet posted below is the same one that  I will provide on the exam.

Students are allowed to bring in two sheets to the exam.

Students will need a calculator - phones will not be allowed !

 

Exam will be worth 15 %, 30 % or 100% of the students overall course grade depending on the number of classes of Physics that students were absent from this term and depending on if exam grade is higher or lower than class grade going into the exam.

1. Over 5 classes absent - exam worth 30%

2, 5 or less classes absent and higher exam mark than class mark - exam worth 100%

3. 5 or less classes absent and lower exam mark than class mark - exam worth 15 % 

 

There are two exam reviews that were handed out on Thursday May 23rd. 

I have posted one of them below. Answers are at the end - not worked out solutions.

I will also include final answers on the second review. 

I would encourage students to get a start on these reviews as there are lots of questions to work out.

** Also, make sure to go back through all unit tests (kinematics, dynamics & work/energy/momentum impulse) and all quizzes. **

 

Waves will not be on the exam ( note : Waves assignment must be completed)
