Tuesday, 5/31/16-A Day

Learning Objectives:

  • To determine the motion of an object by the sum of the forces acting on it
  • To relate mass and force to a change in motion

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook open to pages 104-105- your experiment on Newton’s 1st & 2nd laws; Talk to everyone in your lab group- Does everyone have the data written in his or her data table? Be sure to calculate averages too.
  2. Collect homework– Forces and Motion Basics PhET simulation (for anyone absent from class on Friday)
  3. Science Vocabulary– Copy the definitions for the following scientific terms onto the back of the flash-card template: force, motion, friction, inertia, speed, acceleration
  4. Advance OrganizerNewton’s First law- Inertia, Newton’s Second Law- Acceleration, Newton’s Third Law- Action & Reaction
  5. Investigation Experiment– How does the sum of forces on an object or the mass of an object affect the object’s motion? Use data to create a graph. Write conclusion (with writing prompts, if appropriate).

Homework:

  • STUDY- Forces and Motion Quiz tomorrow 6/1
  • Science Notebook due Fri. 6/3

Remember: As long as you act like a scientist when we do science, you will be treated like a scientist and conduct investigations. If not, you get to watch the rest of us do science.

Learning Objectives:

  • To determine the motion of an object by the sum of the forces acting on it
  • To relate mass and force to a change in motion

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Newton’s Laws 1 & 2 Conclusion p.104” (Left Side); Head page 104 properly with “Newton’s 1st & 2nd Laws-Conclusion-5/26/16.”
  2. Investigation Experiment– How does the sum of forces on an object or the mass of an object affect the object’s motion? Model procedure & data table. Review science safety expectations and cooperative group member responsibilities. Conduct investigation and record data in data table.

Homework:

Complete Forces and Motion Basics PhET simulation- due tomorrow 5/27

Wednesday, 5/25/16- B Day

Learning Objectives:

  • To determine the motion of an object by the sum of the forces acting on it
  • To relate mass and force to a change in motion

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Newton’s Laws 1 & 2 Experiment p.105” (Right Side); Head page 105 properly with “Newton’s 1st & 2nd Laws-Investigation/Experiment-5/25/16.”
  2. investigation Experiment– How does the sum of forces on an object or the mass of an object affect the object’s motion? Plan experiment- Identify IV, DV, constants/controlled variables, control and form hypothesis in cooperative table groups. Design a procedure & data table.

Homework:

Complete Forces and Motion Basics PhET simulation- due Fri. 5/27

Tuesday, 5/24/16- A Day

All classes will meet in the computer lab A3/A5

Learning Objectives:

  • To determine the motion of an object by the sum of the forces acting on it
  • To relate mass and force to a change in motion

Learning Activities:

  1. Counseling Lesson- Mrs. Verrastro will lead a counseling lesson.
  2. Investigation Simulation (continued)Forces and Motion: Basics PhETsimulation- See post in Google Classroom. Investigate balanced and unbalanced forces in a game of tug-of-war. Explore the forces at work when pushing against objects of different masses: a refrigerator, crate, or person. Create an applied force and see how it makes objects move. Change friction and see how it affects the motion of objects. How does the sum of the forces on an object and the mass of an object affect the object’s movement?
