Link -> Mr. Tyler’s Physical Science Digital Resources

Warm Up:

For today’s warm up I will be having you take a quick survey for me. I like to know more about the students in my class. This survey should take about 4-5 minutes at most to fill out.


Task #1 – (Review)

Prompt: How do you think physics relates to your world? What do you think the job of a physicist includes?


Task #2 – (Review)

Sir Issac Newton!
