Core Ideas:

  • For any pair of interacting objects, the force exerted by the first object on the second object is equal in strength to the force that the second object exerts on the first, but in the opposite direction (Newton’s third law).
  • The motion of an object is determined by the sum of the forces acting on it; if the total force on the object is not zero, its motion will change. The greater the mass of the object, the greater the force needed to achieve the same change in motion. For any given object, a larger force causes a larger change in motion.
  • All positions of objects and the directions of forces and motions must be described in an arbitrarily chosen reference frame and arbitrarily chosen units of size. In order to share information with other people, these choices must also be shared.

Core Ideas:

  • Substances are made from different types of atoms, which combine with one another in various ways. Atoms form molecules that range in size from two to thousands of atoms.
  • Each pure substance has characteristic physical properties (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it.

Tuesday, 2/28/17- B Day- Flooded with Soul: the Musical 9:00-10:45 (No Periods 6 & 5)

Flooded With Soul The Musical – A School-wide Presentation- Flood Auditorium – Tuesday, February 28th

9:00 A.M – 10:45 A.M (estimated time of event)

The musical production of Flooded With Soul brings the audience on a journey through time highlighting the great jazz, funk, R&B, and soul artists of the 60’s, 70’s, and beyond. 70’s Dude (Mr. Schock) is stuck in time and meets Flood student (Aditya). 70’s Dude feels that the Flood student has lost his “soul” both musically and inspirationally. 70’s Dude sets out on a mission to reinvigorate the Flood student’s soul by bringing him on a funkadelic journey that explores the great musical artists of his generation. By the end of the journey, the Flood student finds his “soul” and transforms himself into a 70’s soulful and spiritual musical guru.

The musical will be presented to the whole school on Tuesday, February 28th in the auditorium.

7th grade teachers will bring their students down to the auditorium front seating at 8:50 A.M.  8th grade teachers will bring their students down at 8:55

Musical begins at roughly 9:10/9:15 and ends at roughly 10:45
