Welcome to the THIRD week of school! The gears are really turning now! (Physics humor)

This Week in AP Physics
We will complete our first experiment and spend some time in the computer lab learning the technology procedures and lab report guidelines as we begin our first lab report. This lab report will be due on Wednesday, September 9 with a hard copy turned in at the start of your class period and an upload to TurnItIn.com by 3:00 of that day. (For TurnItIn.com, the class ID is 10522469, and the password is Tesla.) Later in the week we will complete our unit 1 notes and do homework 3 along with the second lab for unit 1, Lab 2 – Acceleration due to Gravity. Expect a test next week.
