Unit 11/12 Calendar; 2005-2006

The following calendar provides an estimation of our progress in Unit 11 and 12 of Honors 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 in this unit.
