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?
