## 4th Quarter: April 3 - 7

## Monday, April 3rd

**6th Period: Today in class…..**

- Today we looked over our tests on circuits (try to get test corrections done by the end of the week) before moving on to simple harmonic motion.
- We just got in to the basics today and looked at the overall theme of the chapter - the physics principles we're studying can be applied to any motion that repeats.
- We looked at Hooke's law and did two examples to practice with it. (Examples 1 and 2)

**HOMEWORK:**Test corrections - complete by the end of the week.

## Tuesday, April 4th

**1st Period: Today in class…**

- After a quick look at our tests on circuits, but finished up a little bit of information with magnetism.
- Afterwards, we started to look at the basics of simple harmonic motion.

**HOMEWORK:**Test corrections - try to have done by end of the week.

## Wednesday, April 5th

**6th Period: Today in class….**

- After a quick review, we looked at SHM modeled as a wave. We can use both the terminology and variables associated with waves with SHM.
- We spent a large part of today creating three different waves functions for SHM. (One for position, velocity, and acceleration).
- Afterwards, we started to discuss the energy of SHM. We'll work more with this in class periods to come.

**HOMEWORK:**Read in additional reading packet - 11.1 and 11.2

## Thursday, April 6th

**Today in class….**

- Today we worked more with Simple Harmonic motion.
- We did a little practice with Hooke's Law looking at class examples 1 and 2.
- Afterwards, we saw that SHM can be modeled as a wave function using all the variables and terminology that is often associated with waves.
- We spent a large part of our remaining time creating specific wave functions for the position, velocity, and acceleration of an object in SHM.

**HOMEWORK:**Read sections 11.1 and 11.2 in additional reading packet.

## Friday, April 7th

**6th Period: Today in class….**

- Today we did our Spring Constant Lab.
- We'll look back again at the energy of SHM when we come back from spring break.

**HOMEWORK:**Complete any graphs that still need to be done from the lab
