Friday, 5/1/15- B Day

Learning Objective:

To illustrate how the circular motion of an object is caused by a center-seeking force (centripetal force) resulting in the object’s constant acceleration

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Open to p.95 in your science notebook and p.65 in your science textbook; Get out the Straw Rocket Experiment packet and turn to the forces data table on page 3.
  2. Science Friday- What is a Flame?
  3. Textbook outline of pp.64-67 on ISN p.95
  4. Experiment- Straw Rocket
  • Model how to test the force and measure the distance. Modify the Data Table.
  • Conduct experiment- Test force and record results on data table. Do “Analyze the Data” on p.3.


Complete the Conclusion for force on p.3 of the Straw Rocket Experiment Packet- due Tue. 5/5
