### Day 3AP Physics

September 8, 2014

Agenda

- LT: Understand Experimental design. process Be able to recognize graphs and the equations that represent them.
- Entry task: Summer Homework Table Discussion and stamp sheet:

Check your answers to the key. Help anyone in the group with areas they are questioning.

- What is Physics?
- Match the graph activity
- Water rocket Design . Must have a 2-liter bottle. Testing launch will be on Thursday Make sure Thursday you wear clothes comfortable for the field and weather.
- Homework: Read the AP Physics Document –One dimensional Kinematics. Familiarize your self with the terms and be prepared to show your understanding next class for the entry task.

Join Edmodo

- Sign up as a student. Use group code : nrj39e Try it out by signing in .
- Make sure a communications are AP Physics related and school appropriate or I will take you off the list.

Vocabulary

- Physics
- Experimental Design
- Motion

Quiz

- Where does the decimal point go when writing in scientific notation?
- Describe the motion and direction of a ball dropped from a building.
- If we drop a tennis ball from 100 meters, what would you predict the rebound to be?
- Why do we make predictions in science?

What is Physics to you?

- At your table, discuss as a group what your working definition of Physics is, come to a consensus and select one person to speak for the group. Be prepared to justify your answer.

What is Physics?

Physics is the science that investigates the fundamental concepts of matter, energy, and space, and the relationships among them.

Physics is the most basic of the sciences, and is used in all other disciplines of science, medicine, and engineering.

Physicists are problem solvers, often meeting new challenges and developing new theories.

NASA

Mars Rover

High Voltage

NIST

Where might I work as a physicist?A strong physics background prepares you for almost any occupation that involves science or engineering.

How Do I Study Physics?

Preparation and hard work are key to any successful learning endeavor. But a major factor not often mentioned is organization.

Organization

Gather Materials:

- Textbook
- Composition Notebook and Loose leaf notebook
- Pencils, highlighters
- Scientific Calculator
- Protractor (angles)
- Ruler
- Other Supplies

Timely Learning

Timely learning is efficient learning. It is better to study an hour each day than to cram on weekends.

After each lecture, use your next free period to reinforce your understanding.

If you wait until the weekend, you must devote valuable time just rebuilding the information.

Outside the Classroom

Learning is rarely completed in class.To reinforce teaching, you must work problems on your own as soon after class as possible.

Try first, seek help if neces-sary, review examples, work with others. Working prob-lems is the primary way to learn.

The ultimate responsibility for learning rests with you, but you are not alone.

I am here to help and guide you. I am available in class, before and after school, during lunch, during tutorial. My office hours are Mon. Wed and Thurs. from 2:00-2:40.

Make sure you use all the help that is available to you. Some ideas to help:

Study computer tutorials.

Participate in class and table discussions

Review mathematics.

Know when exams are scheduled and study for them.

Get help from me or your science buddy.

Take Action; Never let things outside your control prevent you from achieving goals!

Advice

- If your career choice is in technology, science, engineering, or a similar field, there is no more important beginning course than AP Physics.
- Study physics differently than you would approach the liberal arts. Applications and problem solving require different skills and strategies.

Advice From a Teacher (Cont.)

- Do NOT get behind in physics; the topics are sequential and each successive step requires a mastery of the preceding steps. Cramming is not possible.
- If you get lost, get help sooner than later.

Match the graph activity

- With your table group you will get a group of graphs, descriptors, data tables and a mathematical equations describing the graphs. As a group work together to match the correct graph with the its, descriptor, data table and equation. Write your answers on the provided list. You may have to argue a bit with your classmates. Be ready to defend your decisions from other tables.
