 Monday, February 26 other amnesty hours: 1 am - 1:30 pm missing a lab score? need an updated lab score? (we overlooked something the first time or you provided additional information?) you must come IN PERSON with the appropriate lab book (no scores appear in your books for D2, D3, D6, as we gave everyone a perfect score)

 Monday, February 19 Tuesday, February 20 Wednesday, February 21 Thursday, February 22 Friday, February 23 class block A: bring a musical instrument to class (that you can play at least a couple notes on) block G: bring a musical instrument to class (that you can play at least a couple notes on) final exam check the final exam schedule so that you know where the rooms are what we'll do in class lab C6 continues lab C6 ends lab C6 ends for block G; we will spend 20 minutes on musical instruments; 10 minutes on nodes and antinodes in percussion instruments; you get the other 20 minutes to finish (and get checks for lab C6) lab C6 pretty much ended yesterday for block A; tomorrow is last chance for checks in class (but you must have finished today) reading (always done before class) 14(5) on interference in-class presentation 14(63) written homework (by 5 pm) 14(71 and be sure to include a labeled-diagram -- see friday's note above of the beats) and 8(77) make sure that the following "formulas" NEVER appear on a homework or the final exam friday: wavelength = 2L/n f = v/(2L) or some variant thereof the only formulas, that may appear in a chapter 14 problem are v = f x wavelength (v = f  l) and v = (T/m )1/2 lab other

 Monday, February 12 Tuesday, February 13 Wednesday, February 14 Thursday, February 15 Friday, February 16 class we start a 5-day lab )in the GREEN book) on sound and music.... if you are missing class later in the week, please choose a partner who is also missing class you are expected to have parts 1 and 2C,D done by the beginning of today's class if you are in block A and parts 1 and 2C done at the beginning of today's class if you are in block G make an extra effort to be on time for class today; since I wont be here, someone else is reading attendance and they could take it right at the beginning and then disappear prelab to part 3 (that's both A and B) of lab C6 must be done -- in the labbook -- before class today... we will grade it first thing ditto the comment about attendance yesterday ab C6 continues the planner is in the cubbyhole of the fron desk if you havent signed recently what we'll do in class block A (and some of block G) needs to figure out which way the air vibrates in a resonating pop bottle (with a standing wave) the answer was explained to you in last week's reading, but it's also in tomorrow's reading continue with lab C6 reading (always done before class) 14(8 up to example 14-9 on page 461) 14(4) on the basics of sound 14(9) on beats know the precal of adding two sinusoidal waves Contemporary Precalculus through Applications, 2nd ed (the NCCSM precal book) pp.  424-425 14(5) on the decibel scale in-class presentation 14(58) 14(59a) 14(86) written homework (by 5 pm) 14(61, 12) 14(88) and for the 2nd problem, find the fundamental frequency of the longer string in problem 14(69) 14(64,  70) for 70, include a diagram of the wave shape that covers 1 second of time..... label your diagram with the beat period, the period of the pitch you hear, axes labels, etc monday, show and tell: 14(63) homework for monday: lab you're writing up labs C3/C4 so that you can turn them in wednesday C3/C4 due by 5 pm other

 Monday, January 29 Tuesday, January 30 Wednesday, January 31 Thursday, February 1 Friday, February 2 class test for block A mainly on Chapters 19, 20, 22 but on anything covering electric and magnetic fields, forces, and energy test for block G mainly on Chapters 19, 20, 22 but on anything covering electric and magnetic fields, forces, and energy what we'll do in class block A: test A: last day on spring lab; you should be finished with part III by friday block A does conservation of energy block G does new reading on pendulums: do you see evidence for the three things that go together: simple harmonic motion; a restoring force (F = - k times displacement from unstretched); an energy that depends on displacement squared? block A does new reading on pendulums: do you see evidence for the three things that go together: simple harmonic motion; a restoring force (F = - k times displacement from unstretched); an energy that depends on displacement squared? reading (always done before class) block G: 13(5) (doesn't this mean you have read the previous 4 sections??) blocks A and G: 13(3) block G: 13(6) on pendulums  block A: 13(5) (doesn't this mean you have read the previous 4 sections??) block A: 13(6) on pendulums in-class presentation G: 13(35) G: 13(14) A: 13(35) A: 13(14) written homework (by 5 pm) 13(44a, 45) block G.... you might want to do this early in the week, so it doesnt interfere with your test-studying lab springs are in my office, just inside my door, under the light switch G: finish spring lab through part III A: finish spring lab through part III other
