JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- Stage 1- On the Move

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- On the lined piece of paper: Describe a play in football (or a homerun in baseball or movement in any sport). Watch the video. Now explain that play using scalars (distance, speed) and vectors (displacement, velocity).
  2. Continue to work on the following reading assignments:

Articles

  • Talking About Motion– This article describes how all motion is relative to a reference point. The article also covers the difference between distance and displacement and the use of vector arrows to describe movement.
  • Rates of Change– This article defines rate as the amount of change in any measurement over time and gives several examples.
  • Speed- A Scalar Quantity– This article discusses three different ways to examine speed–instantaneous, constant, and average speed. The article also describes why speed is a scalar quantity and how to calculate and graph speed.
  • Velocity- A Vector Quantity– This article defines velocity as a vector quantity representing both speed and direction and distinguishes it from speed. The article also describes how to calculate and graph velocity.

*Links to the above articles as well as guiding questions to accompany them are found in Google Classroom.

Friday, 5/11/18- B Day- SBAC (7th Grade) Schedule- 5, 4, 7, 6, 2, 3, & 1

JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- What is Motion?

Learning Objective:

Students will understand that motion is relative to a reference point and the difference between distance and displacement.

Learning Tasks:

  1. Science FridayHurricane in a Box
  2. Educational Game– The Fast and the Curious- Use the link below to get to the game The Fast and the Curious in the JASON Project website. Take a few laps around the racetrack behind the wheel of the Argorado, JASON’s fastest race car. Then, see what the speed and velocity graphs look like for your race! After you have finished, DO NOT CLOSE YOUR GAME. Answer the questions about your results in the worksheet below. Use the Speed and Velocity graphs to answer the questions.

JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- Expedition Introduction

Learning Objective:

Students will understand that motion is relative to a reference point and the difference between distance and displacement.

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and add to the NEW Table of Contents- “Cover Page p.67” (Right Side) and “Expedition Briefing p.69” (Right Side). Head page 69 properly with “Expedition Briefing-5/10/18.” Trim and tape NEW Table of Contents to inside front cover.
  2. Educational videos– Watch “Meet the Researcher” video. On ISN p.69, summarize what you learned about Matt Brumbelow. Watch”Expedition Briefing” video. On ISN p.69, jot down thoughts and questions.
  3. Unit Cover Page– On ISN p.67, create a cover page for the unit on A Universe of Motion.
    • Write the title very large so that it is easy to read.
    • Draw a minimum of 3 pictures that represents the unit.
    • Color the entire page, corner to corner, using colored pencil or crayons- no white paper showing.

JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- Expedition Introduction

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- We are starting an expedition on motion with a scientist from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. With your partner, discuss the following questions: What is motion? Why is it important to know the science of motion? In what types of careers might knowledge about motion be important?
  2. Educational VideoUnderstanding Car Crashes: It’s Basic Physics! While watching the video, complete the Video Concept Organizer. Then, answer the Video Discussion Questions.
