This Week in AP Physics
This week we will take a 90-minute assessment to provide data required by the State of Ohio. We will also take an AP Physics readiness assessment. Let me reassure you that neither of these tests will count for a grade. They are merely skills and prior knowledge assessments. With any time we have left, we will begin to explore Unit 1: Newtonian Mechanics – Kinematics in One Dimension.

This Week in Physics
This week we will take a 45-minute assessment to provide data required by the State of Ohio. We will also take a physics readiness assessment. Let me reassure you that neither of these tests will count for a grade. They are merely skills and prior knowledge assessments.With the time we have left, we may begin Unit 1 – Motion in One Dimension. By Monday please take notes on Motion in One Dimension Podcast 1 – Distance v. Displacement and Motion in One Dimension Podcast 2 – Displacement & Direction. We will work through that material and do some practice problems followed by a quiz later in the week of August 25.
