 Physics Lesson Plans & Homework Assignments:Physics is scheduled to be offered again during the 2014-2015 school year!     Physics Helpful Websites: http://www.physics4kids.com/ http://www.physicsclassroom.com/Class/ Physics School Year Lesson Calender: Motion  Analyze and predict position, time, velocity, and acceleration using graphs, motion diagrams and different frames of reference.  Describe, classify and solve problems that involve circular, projectile, or periodic motion. Forces  Analyze the effects of inertia and resistance forces suchas air resistance and friction and their effects on acceleration.  Solve problems involving force, mass, acceleration, and Newton’s law of gravitation. Momentum & Impulse  Apply the law of conservation of momentum to analyzethe motions of systems of objects.  Solve problems involving momentum and impulse including simple collisions. Mechanical Energy  Solve problems involving work, PE, KE and the law of conservation of energy.  Apply the law of conservation of energy to analyze the motions of systems of objects. Electricity & Electromagnetism  Explain how objects are charged in terms of conductionand induction and charge distribution.  Use electrostatic attraction and repulsion to explain common experiences with charged objects, electrostatiforces and electric current.  Analyze series and parallel electric circuits in terms of electric current, resistance, voltage, and power.  Use magnetic repulsion and attraction to explain common experiences with magnets and magnetic objects.  Relate magnetic fields and forces with electric current such as in the workings of motors and generators. Waves  Understand and solve problems involving frequency, wavelength, and wave speed including examples of light and sound.  Describe and predict how waves and wave motion change due to interference with other waves and their surroundings. Thermal  Analyze the effects of heat, temperature, and efficiencyin thermal systems. Nuclear  Understand nuclear fission and fusion and the interchangeable nature of mass and energy.
