The End

Well, it is now the last week of school. Here's what's going on:

Monday, May 20th: Your final lab is due. Come turn it in today even if your class period does not meet.

Monday/Tuesday: We are watching the documentary Tim's Vermeer. There will be an extra credit Plickers quiz at the end.

Wednesday, May 22nd: This is the last day to make up or retake a test and to get regular labs checked. This is the last day I will be available to students. It is a half day with periods 1,3,5 only. We will not be doing anything in class.

Thursday, May 23rd: This is the last day to turn in missing homeworks and extra credits. I will not be here, so just leave everything in the basket. I will not be available to help students as I will be working at graduation all day.

If you will be a senior next year, please fill out the survey at  to help me do all the graduation/senior year stuff I have to do. Please also join my Remind by texting @uhs2020fyi to 81010.

Compound Circuits

How do you solve a circuit that has both series and parallel components? That was the topic today. We took notes by solving a problem on the board. Here is the result:

Here is a video that I made a couple of years ago solving this problem.

Whatever time we didn't spend on this problem (which is a lot of time) you were working on two worksheets: Concept-Development 35-2 and Compound Circuits Practice. Whatever you didn't finish in class is homework.
