Thursday, 3/28/19- A Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

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

Lesson Question:

What role does mass and velocity play in collisions?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s Home Learning tasks in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to page 59. Write your name on the piece of paper and describe two factors that determine momentum.
  2. Investigation– Momentum- What role does mass and velocity play in collisions? Review Science Safety Regulations and complete Lab Safety Checklist– Before You Begin. Also, review Group Member Responsibilities.  For each section of the lab, follow directions modeled and given on the board and record data and observations in the handout. Start with Car 1 and record time until the car reaches the barrier. Calculate velocity and momentum. Then use Car 2 (with a 500 g mass) as a “barrier” and record the time it takes for Car 2 to stop & displacement it travels. Repeat this again, this time using Car 1 with a 500 g mass. complete the Reflect and Apply and Journal questions. Also, complete the Lab Safety Checklist-After Lab is Completed.

Lesson Question:

What role does mass and velocity play in collisions?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s Home Learning tasks in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Momentum p.59” (Right Side). Head page 59 properly with “Momentum-Investigation-3/26/19.”
  2. Review The Moving Man: Position, Velocity, Acceleration PhET questions and collect labs.
  3. Reading for Information/Cornell Notes– Explain the format for Cornell notes and set up ISN p.59 with the lesson question- “What role does mass and velocity play in collisions?” Add the following scientific language keywords to the Index in the back of your notebook: momentum & inertia. Model how to use the Cornell notes format, practice together as a full class, then continue individually.

Friday, 3/22/19- A Day- Pajama Pants Spirit Day

Lesson Question:

If speed has an effect on the impact of collisions, what happens if an object changes speed?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Write your name on the piece of paper and draw what a graph of distance vs time would look like in the following scenario: A teenager stopped and checked her phone. Then looked up and ran down the street toward a friend. Then stood still to show her a video. Then walked back with her friend to where she started.
