Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!
    AP Physics:  REVIEW SESSION -Saturday, May 6th Noon - 3PM Room 264.  We'll likely focus on Rotational motion to start, then move on to whatever topics folks would like to discuss.

"Motional emf FR soln" is now posted. (1:39 AM, 5/4/17) 
The solution to the first induction FR is now posted.  Please look through it.  It's pretty cool, I think.  I may not get the second one posted tonight...  The file is called, "Inductors" (9:18 PM, 5/3/17)

It is my intention to write up nice explanations of the two induction FR problems at the back of the unit packet.  I will try to get that posted soon.  (Today is my wife's birthday, so we'll see what happens.) (10:10 AM, 5/2/17)

"Electromagnetc Induction Solutions" is now finished and posted. (1:05 AM, 5/1/17)
"Electromagnetc Induction Solutions" are mostly posted now (problems 1-5) (3:22 PM, 4/30/17) (Remember, on MC, the problems tend to be short.  You should understand what's going on in these problems conceptually, and recognize what formulas we are applying, but long calculations like these won't show up until the FR section on Thursday.)  I'll get the rest of the solutions posted in a little bit.
I plan to have an E&M review session this Saturday, 4/29/17, at 3PM in Room 264.
"Ampere's Law" Solutions now posted in the AP Physics Google Drive (6:38 AM, 4/28/17)
"Biot-Savart" solutions is now updated to include solutions to all four problems in that set, and is now posted in the AP Physics Google Drive (6:50 PM, 4/27/17)
"Forces on Charges & Currents in Magnetic Fields Solutions" is now posted in the AP Physics Google Drive (11:23 PM, 4/24/17)
Aaaaahhh... Another masterpiece!  Solutions to the RC Circuit Free Response problems are now posted in the AP Physics Google Drive.  (11:56 AM, 4/15/17)



    Honors Physics:  Added answers to Projectiles WS#2 to the Google drive.  (1/23/17)

OLO's can be found in the "Student Resources" Google drive (Link below).  The OLO requirements provide handy summaries of the concepts in each unit and are helpful for studying for the test the first time...
