Monday - Introduction to Dynamics - file dynamicsintro below.

           - Why objects move.

           forces (what are the various types involved?)

Tuesday - Review of Monday's variables (Fg, W, Fa, FS, Fk)

            - calculating mass & weight

           - completion of dynamics intro file - Review this.           

           - Friction 

           - Fnet 


Wednesday- Calculating Fnet 

              - Fnet = ma ;  a = Fnet / m

              - Connecting forces & kinematics

              - Complete the homework sheet.


Thursday - Same as Wednesday & problems.

            - Fnet

            - Review material from this week on dynamics.

Friday- No school

The rewrite for the kinematics unit will be Friday during class time. If you do not select to do this rewrite your original mark will stand. If you do write, I will record the higher of the two marks.

The original test will count as a quiz/assignment of value 10 marks.

I am available Wednesday & Thursday after school for extra help if needed.

I would be a good practice to go back through the original test and check with the solutions I passed out on Monday. I would also look over the review I passed out prior to the test.


* Note all students will be required to complete a projectiles assignment for Monday. Those not doing the rewrite may work on this assignment during Friday's class.

Monday - Numbers and data

           - Calculating percents


Tuesday - p 166 ' pump up the volume "

          - Read p 167 -168 "processing petroleum"

         - Review percents & mixtures to date (see file below)

          - This review will take the place of the quiz that was originally scheduled before March Break. Graded out of 10 marks.

Wednesday - Processing petrolem

               - Discuss 'pump up the volume' activity from Tuesday's class.

Thursday - Fracking - good or bad

                         - shattered ground. 

Friday - STEM

             - What is STEM?

            - This will be the start of what will be a weekly activity where students can work on their own science project. Students need to get prior approval of topic before beginning their project. Details tba.
