How is energy getting into the cup, if not from collisions with air?
- Do Now– Open your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Blocking Energy Investigation p.42” (Left Side). Head p.42 properly with “Blocking Energy Investigation 1/11/19.”
- Science Friday– What’s So Cool About Frozen Water?
- Lamp Analogy Map– On the “Demonstration: The Lamp” student handout, relate the physical model of the lamp to the phenomenon of the Sun in space. Fill in the first row as a class, and then work with your partner to complete the other rows. Then, tape the handout as a flip page to ISN p.43.
- Blocking the Energy Investigation– Set up ISN p.42. Record the question: “How can we minimize energy transfer by blocking waves from carrying energy into the cup?” Then below the question, record ideas that you have of investigations that you can do to test that question. Next, work in a group to design an investigation to test the question and conduct your investigation idea, given the constraints on materials. What are some important considerations when designing an experiment? Turn these considerations into a set of procedures for your group. Record your procedures on a master sheet to turn in. On ISN p.42, draw a data table. Fill in the column headings with the times that you will be checking the temperature in the cups. Fill in the row headings with the condition(s) that you will be testing. Your data table should match the procedures.
