Enjoy the long weekend and keep safe. Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate it.
Ocgtober 10: Objects in inclined planes continued. Hw none if you are all cought up.
October 9: Application of Newton's Laws. HW: continue your work on the booklet, it is due for marks tomorrow
October 8: Objects on inclined planes. HW: make sure you are all cought up with questions assigned from the textbook - a quiz tomorrow will be inspired by your homework questions. The booklet given
in class tomorrow is to be worked on during class on Thursday. It will be due for marks after the long weekend.
October 7: Object on an inclined plane. Newton's Laws review. HW: Finish the Normal Force and Friction in-class assignment. Due tomorrow if you choose to earn marks for it.

October 3: Force of friction. Hw: finish questions from the textbook - p 128 #17-20, p 130 #28,28, 30
October 2: Normal force in three different scenarios, introduction to force of friction. HW: none if you are done with all corrections and have no outstanding assignments.
October 1: Newton's third law, action and reaction pairs. HW: questions assigned in the handout. Quiz tomorrow on FBD, nature of force, Newton's three laws.
September 30:All corrections and late assignments are due on Thursday. Newton's second law. HW: questions assigned in the handout.
Please, remember to wear an orange t-shirt or an orange hoodie on Monday! Why? Because Every Child Matters. We will discuss in class. You can also visit:

September 27: Translational equilibrium practice. Hw: none :)
September 26: Introduction to Dynamics, FBDs, Nature of Force, Newton's First Law. HW: textbook p 95
September 25: kinematics test. HW: none
September 24: Work period, free fall and projectile motion. HW: study for the test.
September 23: Work period, projectile motion practice. HW:study for the test, finish in-class assignment for 30 marks, due tomorrow
September 20: Projectile motion continued. HW: start on the assignment given in class. it will be due for marks at the end of class on Tuesday.
Kinematics test is on Wednesday, September 25
Assignment #3 (2.3) is due on Monday.
September 18: Objects thrown straight up or down. HW: textbook p 74 #42-46, p #47-52 you are not required to use the GRASS method. Textbook questions p 80 #53-73 are review questions for the unit
test that will be next week, thus start working on those questions now. Free fall handout given in class must be completed for tomorrow's class.
September 17: work period, kinematics graphs. HW: continue your work on the assignemnts given in class
September 16: Written assignment expectations: class time to do corrections to the vector assignment. Free fall - definition, example 1. HW: redo assignment #2 (3.2) vectros. Due on Wednesday
September 18.
September 13: Kinematics - problemm solving. HW: finish questions in the 2.3 handout. #1 20 cm, #3 599m[forward], #5 11 s, #6 39.2 m #7 -0.41 m/s^2, #9 75.0 m/s^2 [W], #10 23.3m/s^2, #12 -9.31 m/s^2,

September 12: Problem solving in physics, GRASS method: Assignment #3, questions # 2,4, 8,11,13 from the 2.3 handout given in class. and p 7 in the graph handout. Assignment #3 requires you to use a
pencil and start each question on a new page using lined paper.
September 11: D/T graphs based on V/T graphs, HW: p 3, 4, 5 in the white handout.
September 10: vector quiz, using kinematics formulas, drawing D/T graphs based on V/T graphs. HW: finish the green sheet given yesterday, check your answers, answer key at the back of class. Note:the
accelerations in question 5 on green handout is negative!
September 9: Velocity versus Time graphs. Drawing V/T graphs based on D/T graphs. HW: study vectors - quiz on Tuesday. If you have not handed in 3.2 assignment (#2) that was due today you have until
Wednesday to do so. No corrections possible for assignments that were not handed in today. No grade for assignments turned in after Wednesday.
September 6: Vector quiz (yes, another one). Work period HW: ensure that the Displacement time graphs handout is completed to your best ability.
September 5: Instantaneous velocity. HW: finish the frist three pages on the displacement time graphs handout. Study vectors.
September 4: Kinematics continued. Vector quiz. Displacement, velocity and average velocity definitions. HW: using a pencil, start filling in information about the displacement time graphs in the
handout. Note, some of the questions will be hard to answer and we will talk about those in class as a group. Assignment #2 due for marks on Monday, September 9. Use a pencil and lined paper. Answer
questions 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9 from the 3.2 Check and Reflect handout given in class today.
September3: Kinematics continued.Interpreting graphs. HW: study for a vector quiz.
