Welcome back everyone!

I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing vacation.

We have exactly two weeks left in Physics 11! See a tentative schedule for the next two weeks below.

Today:

  1. New Seats, New Peeps!
  2. Lesson 1: Frames of Reference and the Michelson-Morley experiment
  3. Assignment: Read Chapter 1 of “The New World of Mr. Tompkins” and complete the assigned reading questions.
    • Required documents are in Modern Physics Page

A look ahead at the next two weeks:

Thursday Nov 30

Today we will be doing a lab investigating the properties of waves.

In the first part of the lab, you will be creating different waves, filming them, and explaining them in an Edublog post.

In the second part of the lab, you will be using an online simulator to investigate the properties of waves. Click on the link below to complete the second part of your lab.
