"Today, we prepared for the student's exam tomorrow. The exam covers chapter 6,7,8, and 9. We were able to cover many problems for each chapter. She has a good understanding of the material, so I'm not worried about her performance. As long as we get to review the problems for homework twice or at least once, she will grasp the material."
"We worked on packet over charges and Coulomb's law, then discussed similarities between calculations of gravitational force and electric force and when each is dominant. We worked some Coulomb's law problems involving more than two charges. We also worked on math, converting systems of equations to matrices and solving them."
"Reviewed several of the concepts discussed previously on the physics of electricity and electric circuits. Expanded our discussion of RLC circuits into more detailed analysis of what happens when such circuits are placed in AC current, and reviewed the reason why we use both inductors and capacitors in AC circuits (and not just one). Practiced reactance and impedance problems using a suggested homework problem set. Introduced the concept of a phaser - the vector representation of the difference between current and voltage phases in an AC circuit resulting from the presence of inductors and capacitors, which have imaginary impedances, but very real effects on circuitry."
