AP Physics - April Vacation Plans

Friday, April 9th we will go over the Chapter 21 homework and do an online interactive lab.

We are quickly approaching the time for the AP test so we need to speed things up a bit.

Over the break, instead of a practice test, I want you to do the next three chapters on your own. We would have done them in class if we had school.

You should read the chapter and the slides, which are all uploaded to the site, and then do the homework as noted below. If you have time, you can try any of the online simulations and review sites that may be in the slides.

Homework problems:
Chapter 22 - 3, 9, 21, 25, 33
Chapter 23 - 5, 15, 17, 29, 35, 43, 55
Chapter 24 - 5, 9, 15, 23, 29, 41

When you return from April vacation we will go over these chapters in a quick summary and review and then go over some of the problems. I will post all of the solutions after that.

You will have a practice exam to take one weekend before the test date.

Read the chapter, then the slides, and make sure to go through the examples in the book.
Email me if you have any problems or questions. I will be checking my email throughout the week. dandrade@bridgeportedu.net

Here are some web sites to go for more help:

These three from the Physics Classroom are really great and explain things well.
