AP Physics We continue to review for the AP exam.
Continue to watch the AP Physics I YouTube videos. I found Thursday's video on torque and equilibrium of not much help. He did do a good job on differentiating between static equilibrium and dynamic equilibrium. I see a potential trick question there. Friday's video should be helpful on answering the experimental FRQ on the exam, especially the different ways to measure force and how important it is to be able to linearize a graph. He also mentioned NEVER put down human error as an error in an experiment. I see that too many times!
Another review source of vidoes to watch is the NMSI: AP Physics I Youtube channel. NMSI scoured the web and found some excellent videos to review concepts and show demonstrations. Some are very short. The first 28 cover what you need to know. Watch a few for attendance and comment on a video you watched in the discussion board. (Never started one before , lets see how it goes. The tab is under the content tab on our Blackboard page. This should be fun!)
Friday March 27,2020
We made it to Friday. I hope you all can relax a little over the weekend. Get outside or do something different. I know my eyes need a rest from looking at screens all day and evening. Here we go. An easy day for everyone at least from me.

Thursday March 26, 2020
The week is almost over. I need a break, I need the weekend. Too much work. Am I right?
Chemistry I I can: explain what the ideal gas law is and does!
Today all classes will be having a Google Meet. Period 1 is at 8:00, Period 3 is at 9:45, and Period 6 is at 12:10. I will be sending an email invite out just before the meets. In the future we will try a Google Calendar invite; I just learned how to do those today. If you miss the Google Meet there will be a makeup assignment posted on Blackboard. Attendance of the meet equals attendance for the day.
Chemistry II I can: describe what a rate law is.
Watch the videos posted on Blackboard covering the 13.3 answers to homework and 13.4 Notes on Rate Laws. Study the notes, read the book, it is about to get a little rough finally. This is the part that scares people away from Chem II. Answer the attendance question about the notes.
We are reviewing for the AP exam. I will give you two days to watch Thursday's video. I will post a question about it Friday. You can watch Friday's video FOR FUN. There will be a Google Meet Friday to discuss Wednesday's video. Check-in Attendance question on Blackboard.
Wednesday March 25, 2020
Chemistry I can: recognize the ideal gas law and can explain what all the variables stand for.
I will show the answers to the last 2 assignments Thursday for those of you who need to see how it is done or who have to make corrections. Watch the short video on The Introduction of the Ideal Gas Law. Look at the posted Guided Note Sheet "Ideal Gas Law Intro HO" and write out the answers and submit on the Blackboard Assignment written submission area. Reminder: Thursday will be Google Meet for each class: Period 1 is at 8:00, Period 3 is at 9:45, and Period 6 is at 12:10. Please reveiw the Google Meet protocols listed on the Thursday March 19th Chemistry I instructions. If you miss the Google Meet there will eventually be a makeup assignment.
Chemistry II I can: solve activation energy problems using enrgy diagrams.
Solve the following: in Chapter 13 #55-58,60-67,69,70 submit as a picture in an email to me.
Watch the video on the AP YouTube channel. It is streamed live at 12-12:45, but you can also watch it later. Then answer the 2 questions on Blackboard by 10:00 pm.
Tuesday March 24, 2020
Chemistry I can: solve Boyle's, Charles', Gay-Lusaac's, and the Combined Gas Law problems.

If you are not sure how to attach a file, Google it! If you do not have a phone, just type out all the work (list the given, state which law, rearrange the equation, and solve) and submit it as a written submission.
There will be a Google Meet on Thursday: Period 1 at 8:00 am, Period 3 at 9:45, and Period 6 at 12:10. Please review the Google Meet protocols listed below on the Thursday, March 19th, instructions for Chemistry I.
I am still waiting for the AP Central site to provide Practice FRQ questions. (The AP Chem old FRQ test questions have been released.) So I will ask the following question to be answered in a blackboard assignment. What concept was the most challenging so that we need to review it and practice it. State what it is and why we should spend extra time reviewing it. There will NOT be a Google Meet today.
Chemistry II I can: explain what factors affect reaction rate, including temperature, number of collisions with energy greater than the activation energy, and the fraction of collisions with the proper orientation.
Watch the short video explaining the answers to the homework. Watch the video on the notes 13.3 c,d, and e. The actual assignment will be tomorrow. For attendance purposes, answer the question dealing with the notes on Blackboard. Submit your answer in the Blackboard Assignment submision written area. No Google Meet today.
Monday March 23, 2020
Chemistry I I can: differentiate between the different gas laws by formula and by what variable is constant.
Watch the video on how to solve the combined gas law problem assigned Monday. Take a picture of the Gas Laws Handout and then "fill in" the answers as described in the Google Assignment written submission box. Looking at the gas law and filling in the blanks for that law is a logical way of filling in the handout.
Chemistry II I can: draw energy profile diagrams with activation energy and can calculate activation energy and energy of reaction.
Watch the short video showing the answers to last Fridays homework, watch the video showing Notes 13.3a,b, some c, and on a sheet of paper do Ch 13.3 #46-50, 53,55. Show the answers on the Google Meet tomorrow for credit. There will be a Google Meet at 10:55 today.
AP Physics I can: realize that the AP exam will only be 45 minutes long and it will be on-line.
The on-line exam will only cover Units 1-7, which we have already covered! It will most likely still have an FRQ component in which a picture can be submitted of the work. There will be free instructional support starting Wednesday, March 25. We will be taking advantage of it. There will be two testing dates, an early one for people who do not want to forget stuff, and a later date for those who want to review more. Wait until near the testing dates before you decide which way to go.
There will be no Google Meet today. Do the assignment on Blackboard for attendance.
Friday March 20, 2020
If you are having trouble using Blackboard, or have questions about how something works, google "Blackboard learn for students." "Submit an assignment" and "how to change the language of the user interface" could be helpful. Blackboard grades are not accurate, use RDS. If you owe me an old pre-Virtual School assignment, you may submit it as a Google Doc.
Chemistry I I can recognize the combined gas law is just a combination of Boyle's, Charles', and Gay-Lusaac's laws and can be used for any of them by covering up the variable (P,V, or T) that does not change.
There are two short videos to watch on blackboard: how to do 14.2 #3,4,5 (the homework answer video) and the new notes on the combined gas law 14.2 b. We will have a Google Meet at 8:00 for Period 1, at 9:45 for Period 3, and at 12:10 for Period 6. Please check the rules for participating on Thursday's posting. I will answer questions that you have, specifically about the gas laws.
For homework answer the following question on a sheet of paper using the combined gas law:
A balloon has a volume of 45.0 Liters at 20.2 degrees Celsius and 755 mm Hg. If a cold weather front moves in and the temperature drops to 17.5 degrees Celsius and the pressure increases to 765 mm Hg, what WILL BE the NEW volume of the balloon? Post your answer on the blackboard assignment written submission box.

Thursday March 19, 2020
Chemistry I I can solve Boyle's, Charles', and Gay-Lusaac's gas law problems.
We will be scheduling a Google Meet on Friday for each class. I miss you all and would like to see your faces. First a few ground rules. Behave as you do in a typical class. Once greeted by the teacher, mute your microphone. This eliminates background noise and distractions during discussion.
If you have questions or comments during the discussion, make a comment on the chat so your teacher knows and can ask you to speak when the time is appropriate. At that time you will be asked to unmute your mic.
If you have a difficult time hearing, try turning on the captions.
DO NOT KICK PEOPLE OUT OF THE MEET. This behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. You will not be invited to future meets.
When the discussion has ended the teacher will thank yu for attending and then you may type "bye" in your chat and leave.
The Google Meet will be recorded and may be posted on Blackboard. People who were unable to attendmay then view the Meet and can contribute to the discussion by commenting in the assignment box in Blackboard for that day. Logging in for the Meet is all you need to do to get credit for attending Virtual school that day!
The schedule for Friday is as follows : Period 1 will be at 8:00 am, period 3 will be at 9:45 am, and period 6 will be at 12:10 pm. I am looking forward to seeing all of you then!
Assignment: Watch the video on Blackboard on how to solve gas law problems, then do 14.2 #3,4,5 as instructed on the Blackboard assignment.
Chemistry II I can draw reaction energy profiles and explain them.

AP Physics I can: recognize similarities and differences between resonating strings and air resonating in open-open, closed-closed, and open-closed tubes.
Watch the video about 16.2.3 homework #5,7-14, then watch the video on the 16.4 notes. The homework will be to answer the question in the blackboard assignment concerning the video. The response will count as attendance. There will be no Google Meet today.
Wednesday March 18,2020
After you submit an assignment to Blackboard and it is graded, do not forget to check the comments. Valuable feedback may help prevent mistakes in future assessments. When watching videos do not forget to take notes, you can pause if I go too fast. The notes will help you with the homework the next day and beyond.
Chemistry I I can: recognize the difference between the graphs of the gas laws.

March 16, 2020 Virtual School Commences
Stay safe throughout this time of avoiding social contact with others. The corona viris will run it's course and we will return to finish this quarter. In the meantime we cannot remain stagnant. We must muddle through until we return. I may find better ways to reach everyone, but this is what I have come up with. Welcome to Virtual School. Stay connected and all will be fine. Blackboard will be our learning platform. That is what I was trained on a couple of years ago. Assignments will be listed here and work due on or before Friday, March 13th, should be typed in a Google Doc and shared with me. If you have the lab finished, take pictures and send to me via email. If you have questions concerning the lab email me during our normally scheduled time. Most of our assignments will be sent in daily via Blackboard on the CONTENT tab. JUST SEND THE OLD STUFF VIA GOOGLE.
Chemistry I - If you have any questions, email me during our normal time together. I will try to respond quickly. Use CONTENT tab in Blackboard
Period 6: There will be an instructional video for Chemistry I Period 6 today. You will have to show that you watched the video by answering a question about it on Blackboard by 2:15. If submitted after 2:15, you will be marked absent and the assignment will be worth fewer points. Tomorrow you will have more questions to answer about the instruction from the previous day. The assignment should be turned in by 2:15 or you will be marked absent and the assignment will be worth fewer points. The cycle will then repeat.
Chemistry I - periods 1 and 3: Today is a practice day. An assignment will be waiting for you on Blackboard. It should be submitted by 2:15. If submitted after 2:15, you will be marked absent and your assignment will be worth less points. Tomorrow you will watch an instructional video. There will be a question for you to answer after you have watched the video. It should be submitted by 2:15. If submitted after 2:15 you will be marked absent and the assignment will be worth fewer points. The cycle will then repeat.
Chemistry II This is our video instruction day. I will go over the homework and will demonstrate how to do problem #100. I will then invite you to a Google Meet. I will send you the invite code and you will be marked present when you join us. The assignment will be Chapter 16 #102-107. You will show it to me when we Google Meet the next day. I may have you do assignments in Blackboard under the content tab instead of showing them to me.
Tomorrow will be a problem day. We will meet at our regularly scheduled time, go over the above assignment, then I will assign the rest of the review problems for Chapter 16 and the vocabulary for Chapter 13. We will do the chapter 16 quiz in a month when we return. The pattern of video lesson and assignments will then repeat
Today is officially an assignment day, but test day is rapidly approaching and we must do whatever we can to pass the test. Your time spent on Physics will be less than the 50 minutes in class plus 30 minutes out of class you should be spending on average studying. I will post on Blackboard in the content tab the video showing the answers to the homework. I will also include Notes 16.1 and 16.2. Homework will be #1 and #2. We will try and set up the Google Meet after the notes in order to answer any questions you might have about the video. Attendance will be acceptance into the Google Meet.
