Algebra Based Physics (en Español) Cinematica Unit
The links provided below will assist you in your study of Physics. The simulations are like virtual labs...and you might just find
them to be fun!
The links below supply you with the first chapter of your textbook. It is to go into your 3-ring notebook. You will be receiving one chapter at a time. One link is for the text part of the chapter, another link is for the presentation part of the chapter...we will study these exact presentation slides in class. TAKE NOTES ON THE NOTES! The last link is for the homework problems section of the chapter.
THESE FILES ARE ESPECIALLY HELPFUL IN CASE YOU DON'T HAVE YOUR NOTEBOOK WITH YOU OR YOU JUST LIKE TO BE MODERN! Now you have no excuse for not doing your homework!!
IF YOU WANT TO MAKE PHYSICS PROBLEM SOLVING EASY, USE METHOD 'B'. This may well be different from how you have been and are being taught in Math class (method 'A'), but we will be doing problem solving with equations that are quite advanced with large numbers.
The web link below will show you step-by-step how to correctly solve for the missing formula variable (the answer). Don't worry, we'll be working on this in class as well.
We begin PSI Physics with learning the proper way to solving simple algebraic problems. There are two ways to solve most Physics problems:
A) Plugging the given numbers (we will call these numbers 'givens') into a formula used to solve a problem, and then mathematically solving for the missing variable (the answer).
B) Solving a problem by rearranging the formula you are working with FIRST, by isolating the missing (answer) variable all by itself on one side of the original formula.
