Unit 8 Calendar

2003-2004 School Year

The following calendar provides an estimation of our progress in Unit 8 of Regular Physics. There is no guarantee that we will follow every detail of this calendar - it is merely an approximation. The assumption is that you will be attending class (and listening) such that you will know exactly where we are at in this unit. This calendar will be most useful if you use the links to connect to various parts of our online physics resources.

Additional resources for physics students are available through links on the GBS Physics Home Page. Such resources include the Multimedia Physics Studios (a collection of animations and movies which illustrate key physics concepts) and The Physics Classroom (an interactive, online tutorial covering physics topics traditionally taught in a first-year high school physics course).
