Test Corrections:

If you score below a 70 on an end-of-unit test and would like to try to raise your grade to a 70, you may come into physics tutoring after school to do test corrections within two weeks after the test. Let me know in advance so that I can pull your folder for whoever is running tutoring that day!

Unit 1: Linear Motion

Online resources for this unit:
Physics Classroom tutorial on 1-D Kinematics (i.e. one-dimensional motion)
APlusPhysics videos on Kinematics

Problem set (first two pages will be photocopied and passed out in class):

February 5, 2016: Free Fall
Problem solving steps (draw a diagram, write down givens and unknowns, symbolic equations)
Free fall acceleration (air resistance and terminal speed versus falling without air resistance)
Kinematics problem solving Homework:

Quest HW 1.3 (Kinematics) due next Wednesday at 7 a.m. ET
