It is Financial Literacy Day in Math and Science classes today. In science class, we are responsible for Module 3: Avoiding Financial Pitfalls and Module 4: How Credit Worthy Are You?
We’ll start with the videos below:
What role does mass and velocity play in collisions?
- Do Now– Copy down today’s Home Learning tasks in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Examples p.58” (Left Side). Head page 59 properly with “Momentum-Examples-4/2/19.”
- Momentum Examples– How will the vehicles react in the following situations? 1. A large truck is stopped on road and a small car hits it from behind. 2. A small car is stopped and hit from behind by a large truck. 3. Two cars of equal mass moving at same speed collide head to head. Pair with your partner to discuss each situation and write a description of how the vehicles will react on ISN p.58. Be prepared to share with the class.
- Driving Question Summary Table– Complete the DQST on ISN pgs. 50-51 for the Momentum lab.
Motion Quiz on Friday, 4/5– STUDY ISN pages 47-59
If speed has an effect on the impact of collisions, what happens if an object changes speed? What does this look like on a graph?
- Do Now– Copy down today’s Home Learning Tasks in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to page 56. Write your answers to the questions at the bottom of page 56.
- Simulation Laboratory Investigation– The Moving Man: Position, Velocity, Acceleration PhET– Complete the Moving Man PhET simulation laboratory by using the link to get to the simulation, following the directions and completing the tasks on the view-only handout in the Google Classroom post.
What are our next steps? These ideas for investigations can lead us to uncover important ideas about collisions.
What happens when objects collide?
- Do Now– Copy down your Home Learning assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “DQST p.50″ (Left Side), “DQST p.51” (Right Side), “DQST p.52” (Left Side), and “DQST p.53” (Right Side).
- Class Consensus Initial Model– Together, let’s look at samples of models in Google Slides so we can see if our explanations agree and in what areas we disagree. From that discussion, we will build a Class Consensus Initial Model. Tape your model as a flip page to ISN p.48.
- Develop Questions/Driving Question Board– What do we need to figure out to explain all of this? Brainstorm “What We Wonder” questions about colliding objects and make a list of those questions on ISN p.48. For each of your observations on ISN p.49, think about a question that you can investigate to help you better understand it. Choose the most compelling or interesting question from ISN p.48 and write it big and bold on a notecard using a marker. Write your initials and period number in pencil on the front corner of the card. Bring your card to the scientists’ circle. Read your question and post it on the Driving Question Board (DQB). Explain how it is related to another question on the board.
- Driving Question Summary Table (DQST)– Set up the DQST on ISN pages 50-53 for the driving question: How can we design a crash protection device to absorb enough energy during a car crash to save lives?
Ideas for Investigation/Next Steps– Which of the questions from ISN p.48 or from the Driving Question Board (DQB) would you like to investigate further? What would you like to do to investigate any of those questions? (See Question in Classwork in Google Classroom under Today topic.)
