Here's the HRHS online class schedule for the next 5 weeks.

May 11, 2020

We will be receiving a new schedule for all our classes this week. Classes will be online and remote with voluntary participation and will run from May 19 until June 23.

Some students have been doing extra work for the last few weeks. These sessions will continue though we will need adjust the schedule. The extra voluntary sessions for the next two weeks will be:
May 14 9h30
May 18 10h
May 22 10h
We'll meet Tuesdays and Fridays at 10h after that. All HRHS physics students are welcome to join these extra sessions. Just send me an email requesting to be included, and I will add you to the list.

April 20, 2020

Next optional class is Thursday, April 23 at 10 am. I will send an email 15 minutes before the class to everyone who asked to be included.

April 16, 2020

We will have meet at 11 am on Monday April 20 (not 10 am).

Extra Force Problems.

April 14, 2020

I will be posting the notes and solutions from the online classes in the Physics Dailies. Use the link above.

April 9, 2020

We will have a regular optional physics zoom class at 10 am on Mondays and Thursdays for the cominng weeks. If you wish to join this group, please send me an email. I'll send out a link 15 minutes before each class inviting you to join that class.

Next week, since it is a holiday on Monday, we will have first our class of the week at 10 am on Tuesday, April 14. Stay healthy!

April 7, 2020

I will be hosting a Zoom class on Thursday, April 9 at 10 am. If you would like to participate in this meeting, send me an email letting me know. I'll be sending out a link to those who have expressed interest 15 minutes before the class begins. Participation is voluntary and only for HRHS physics students.

In addition to the questions in Ch. 14, you can try these problems: Newton's Laws Worksheet Questions. They are about the right level of difficulty. (Thank you Tom Burney for posting these. BTW, there should be a space between the unit and the number. Just sayin'.)

Hello all!
Hope everyone is healthy. I've been spending my time exercising, reading the news, plotting and curve fitting the pandemic data.
Some of you may want support in continuing your preparation for next year in which ever program you will be starting. I am here to help you. I will be posting optional questions that you can do to continue your learning in physics.
In addition here are some options that we can do:
1. We can set up a Zoom meeting where we can discuss the material.
2. You can email me a picture of problems that you are stuck on. Of course, if there are dozens of them per day, I'll have to delegate writing out some of the solutions to one of you as we have already begun in class in some groups.
3. If you want to speak to me on the phone, send me an email. We'll set that up.
Send me an email with any comments, thoughts, concerns you may have. There will be an email coming from HRHS on Monday with some information.
I miss you all!

Firstly, not only is the kilogram re-difined as of May 20, but so too have the ampere, kelvin, and mole. We will only learn a definiton of the kilogram.
The kilogram standard definition: "By defining plank's consant, h, to be 6.626 070 15 x 10-34 Js, mass can be determined by relating h to mass by various methods including the Kibble balance and x-ray crystal density methods."

Welcome. Looking forward to having a really good year.
Here's a copy of the Course Syllabus and the Course Rules. I will hand the rules out as soon as I get them back from the printer. You will need to have the rules signed by your parents and returned to me before you can do any lab work.

We are starting with Ch. 6 in the 'Quantum' text book. After the first class you should attempt all the problems from Ch. 6.1, and bring your questions to the next class.
