We've seen a lot of new and difficult concepts this unit, so we'll start class today by trying to figure out how all these concepts relate to each other. We'll fill out a graphic organizer which will help us to organize the way we think about each concept. In pairs, you will then create your own original thinking map - see more details on Google Classroom - due Sunday night.  This will be a great tool for your studying.  You will not be able to use these graphic organizers or thinking maps on the test, but use it to organize your thoughts!
Then, with any time remaining, we'll start looking at a series of problems which will test your understanding of electrostatics concepts. 

HomeworkQUIZ Tuesday, March 20th on electric potential energy and potential.   Look over your Electrostatics Information graphic organizer to make sure you understand all of the concepts.  Unit test on electrostatics scheduled for Wednesday, March 28th.  If you know you are leaving for vacation early, please email me to reschedule your test for BEFORE you leave.
