The end of the Holidays collides with the start of Unit 2!

So it is the end of the Holidays, and time to get back to class. We continue our studies this term into Kinematics and Dynamics – the study of moving objects and the forces that create changes in movement. You were given a set of worksheets to practice with over the holidays (worked-answers-to-hewitt-holiday-sheets) – You should ensure that you have done these by the time you return – we will be referring to them in class and using parts of them to explain and explore concepts. the concepts presented through these sheets may make an appearance on tests for this unit of study, so if you are unclear on any of the issues, please make an appointment to see me to clarify and resolve the problem.

I have found a link to a youtube video that may be of interest – it is a combination of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Physics that should cause a great deal of groaning – but it is also a good explanation of the difference between elastic and inelastic collisions – something you have to know! Link to Biffy the Physics Slayer.

    HMMMM
    Certainly is hard for me to get back into school mode, after a good holidays.
    The new topic looks quite simple but easy to make mistakes in. Most of it i know how to do, except that whisker box thing.
    Hoping for not much maths homework this term.. 🙂
