• Dear Physical Science Students,

    Welcome back to Vanguard.  I look forward to meeting you all.

    Don't forget your masks and perhaps your own personal hand sanitizer on-the-go.

    Be safe!

    BW – Your car’s speedometer reads 60 mph.  How fast is your car traveling compared to the telephone poles?

    1. How fast are YOU (your body) traveling compared to the telephone poles?
    2. How fast are YOU traveling compared to your CAR?
    3. A car passes you at 75 mph. How fast is his car traveling compared to your car?

    Feel free to sketch illustrations to demonstrate your reasoning.
