Welcome to the first week of a new quarter! Grades are starting fresh!

This Week in Physics
If your class hasn’t already done so, we will finish assignment 3 followed by a quiz over goal set 3 as announced. Next we’ll examine upwardly-launched projectiles and will do the Human Cannonball lab (which is a lot of fun!) We are aiming for our unit 2 test by Friday.

Cool Science of the Week
In the spirit of the season, let’s talk about BEING AFRAID!

What’s with the fear of clowns?

So…How can we get over our fears?
