To design & conduct an experiment to determine how launch angle, force, length of rocket body, & number of fins affects the distance a rocket travels
- Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out the Straw Rocket Experiment packet and turn to page 2; On a strip of colored paper, write down the independent variable, dependent variable, and a constant from the Straw Rocket Experiment.
- Experiment- Straw Rocket
- Conduct experiment- Test launch angles and record results on data table. Do “Analyze the Data” on p.2.
- Model how to test the force and measure the distance. Modify the Data Table.
- Conduct experiment- Test force and record results on data table
Complete the Conclusion for launch angle in the Straw Rocket Experiment Packet- due tomorrow 4/30
