Nov 30 (blocks 2 and 3) and Dec 1 (block 5) - TEST - Chapter 3.1 to 3.3 - Projectiles in 2-D (this will not be included in the first report card mark, but will be included in the second report card mark)
Optional Retest: Nov 27 (block 5) and 28 (blocks 2 and 3) - Graphical Method (Chapters 1 and 3.4) AND Dynamics section of Physics 11 Review Test
Dynamics Worksheets (the 5 files posted below):
- "Analysis of Systems" is the series of lessons that we did in class. The concepts are foundational to understanding Dynamics. Do not work ahead beyond the the lessons in class, but after the lessons, go back and try the work again (several times -- until it feels easy/routine)
- the "Practice Quiz" is in essence a structured/guided lesson. Complete the questions in order, following the instructions exactly (in order). If you master these strategies, you will have a solid foundation for further studies in physics.
- the "Dynamics WS Booklet", Practice Problems", and "Challenge Question" have many example problems from old tests and Provincial exams. Try the problems that correspond with the lessons you've been taught (do not try the inclined plane problems until after the lesson on inclined planes).
Optional Retest: Nov 21 - Goal Day - Analytical Method (Chapters 1 and 3.4)
- 9am to 10:30am: Block 5
- 10:40am to 12:10pm: Blocks 2 and 3

Practice Chapter 3 - Work on the following from the textbook (not to be handed in) - Page 80 #13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 24, 27, 36, 77
Nov 7 (blocks 2 and 3) and Nov 8 (block 5) -
QUIZ - Projectiles in 2-D (chapter 3.1 to 3.3) - This quiz includes the Re-Test for physics 11 level kinematics, for people who want to do that part of the Re-Test.
Due Oct 24/25 - Use proper physics graphing technique (follow "graphing guidelines" handout) to complete the assignment posted below.
Thurs Oct 26 (blocks 2 and 3)
Friday Oct 27 (block 5)
TEST - Analytical (mathematical) methods of working with vectors in 2-D. This test relates to Chapters 1, 3.4, and the sections of chapter 4 that involve static equilibrium (net force = zero)
Oct 16 (blocks 2 and 3) and Oct 17 (block 5): Force activity due
- graphical method for determining net force
- component method for determining net force
Practice/learn Analytical methods of working with Vectors
- the following are STRONGLY recommended as practice, because when you have your test on Analytical Methods it will be based on this material. I will not collect this work, but if you have difficulty with any of these questions, please tell me and we can spend some in class discussing.
- throughout the textbook there are excellent "Check Your Understanding" (CYU) questions. Do them! The answers are provided at the end of the book.
- at the end of each chapter there are "Focus on Concepts" questions (excellent to try!), and "Problems". Answers to odd numbered problems are provided at the end of the book.
- Chapter 3.4 - page 72 to 76.
- page 75/76 - CYU questions
- page 79 "Focus on Concepts"" #14 to 16
- page 83 Problems # 53, 57, 59
- Chapter 1.4 to 1.9
- try all CYU questions in these sections, and all Focus on Concepts questions. Try the odd numbered problems.
Test - Vector in 2-D - Graphical Methods (use ruler/protractor -- calculators not permitted!)
- Oct 12 - Block 2 and 3
- Oct 13 - Block 5
Oct 5 and 6 - HAND IN pages 2 and 3 of the Rivers and Airplanes worksheet
Oct 3 and 4 - HAND IN - graphical methods solutions to:
- parts (a) and (b) of the back page of "Graphical Addition of Vectors" worksheet (the question about change in velocity of a car
- Rivers and Airplanes worksheet page 1 #4 to 7 (scale diagram for #4, 5, 6)
TEST - Physics 11 Review - All topics on the review worksheets that you were given in class:
- Sept 28: Block 5
- Sept 29: Blocks 2 and 3
* To prepare for the test: Do and review all Physics 11 Review Worksheets
From the textbook - review/refresh your memory on the following sections (all these topics in these sections are review of physics 11)
* Chapter 1.1 to 1.5
* Chapter 2 (whole chapter = kinematics in 1-D)
* Chapter 4.1 to 4.10 (Newton's Laws and gravitation)
* NOTE: You can try problems from the text, and check the answers to many of the Conceptual Questions and all odd numbered problems (answers are provided at the end of the textbook, in the appendices). The textbook is a good resource -- use it!
