The grade 12 AP physics students concluded their unit on celestial mechanics. Throughout the unit, they analyzed the fundamental principles governing motion in space. Their work included proving Kepler’s Laws, calculating positions of Lagrangian Nodes, and constructing a model of an asteroid’s orbit using orbital elements.
This week, the grade 10 history class began their unit on the 1920s. Having studied World War I, students examined the war’s influence on the culture of the ensuing decade. They were also introduced to The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald to further explore the customs of the illustrious Roaring Twenties.
