week of 11-16-15

This first week of Trimester 2 we will begin moving into our studies in the Physical Sciences.  We begin with a chapter on Motion, which we will combine with Chapter 2 on Force.  
 
Students will be exploring speed with using wind up toys and learning how to calculate average speed of an object.  We will then move into acceleration and build our own "accelerometer" to help this concept come to life.
 
All work will be completed in class to allow those studying for the HSPT extra time to prepare.
