Welcome to Physics! I am looking forward to teaching you this summer. Please get started by:

  1. Join my course (and register for a Canvas account, if you don’t have one) at https://canvas.instructure.com/enroll/GFJ49C.
  2. Log in to the emial account you just used to create a Canvas account and click the link from Instructure.com.
  3. Set your password.
  4. Later, when you want to log in to Canvas, DO NOT click on the link above. Instead, click here: https://canvas.instructure.com/login/canvas

Once you are enrolled you will be able to see your grades in Canvas, as well as complete online assignments, watch videos of class if you miss, and access much more course content. If you have any trouble registering, please email me at joward@wsd.net.

Physics: Periods 1, 3 & 7 ONLY (Period 4 no class today)

Today we took Gravity Quiz 1 (see Mr.Ward to make it up). Then we watched Eureka! videos and took notes (see Video 8) and worked on the “Kinetic and Potential Energy Problems” worksheet through Problem 7b ONLY (download worksheet and check answers in Assignment 8.1 online). Due Weds. 4/27. Collected Gravitation Problems 2 (check in 7.10 online).

 Earth Science: Period 5 ONLY (Period 2 no class today)

Today we worked on the “What is Required for Life?” worksheet (most people are done) and the Astronomy Test Study Guides (Parts 1 & 2, check answers in 5.10 online). All are due on Weds. 4/27. TEST ON WEDS. Collected the green “Composition of Planets worksheet, worth 117 points! Be sure to post the websites you used in the forum on Page 5.8. 20 points for posting.

Physics: Period 4 ONLY (Periods 1, 3 & 7 no class today)

Today we finished the Gravitation Mini-Lab (explore Page 7.9 to see how to finish the lab, and to get the needed resources). We then took the Universal Law of Gravitation notes and notes on Solving Simple Gravity Problems (both in video 7.5.1). Then we completed the “Gravitation Problems 1 worksheet” (it’s very short) on Page 7.5, then completed the “Balloons and the Universal Law of Gravitation” mini-lab on Page 7.7 (also very short). We collected the “Gravitation Problems 1 worksheet” at the end of class. The other 2 worksheets (the pink and yellow labs) are due Friday, with answers checked online (Pages 7.7 and 7.9).

 Earth Science: Period 2 ONLY (Period 5 no class today)

Today we took notes on the nebular theory of solar system formation (notes are in Video 5.6.1). We also worked on the Star Formation worksheet using the webpage at http://sunshine.chpc.utah.edu/Labs/StarLife/starlife_proto.html. No assignments collected today. The Star Formation worksheet is due Friday, with answers checked online (Page 5.6).
