Physics

SUMMER HOMEWORK

Welcome to Physics! You have an exciting year ahead of you. You will be exposed to some of the coolest, most mind bending concepts in the universe. To get you in the proper frame of mind, your summer homework consists of watching the following two movies:

Gravity
Interstellar

These movies have been chosen because they are cool AND THEY TRIED VERY HARD TO GET THE PHYSICS RIGHT.

I would like you to write a 1 to 2 page (no more than 2 pages) personal reaction paper on each one. You may write anything you would like. Some possible questions you could discuss include:

Did you enjoy it?
What were your favorite parts and why?
What cool concepts blew your mind?
Did the movie stimulate any deep philosophical thoughts?
Are there any questions that you have concerning the movie?

As will ALWAYS be the case in my class the entire year – NEATNESS COUNTS! I prefer you type your paper, but it may be handwritten if your writing is legible. Your reaction papers will be due in class on Friday, August 23, 2019.
