Question:

How do the vibrations of the different sounds compare for higher vs lower pitch notes?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now–  Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Higher vs Lower Notes p.28” (Left Side); Head page 28 properly with “Higher vs Lower Notes- 11/28/17.”
  2. Write Pair Share– “What patterns did you notice between how the instruments & music box made different pitched sounds? Do you think there are differences in the vibrations being made as different notes are being produced? Explain.” Write the answers to the questions on ISN p.29. Pair with your cooperative table group to share your responses and come to a consensus. Share your group responses with the class.
  3. Investigation– Higher vs Lower Notes- Predict a graph of the shorter wooden stick pulled back about 10cm, then predict a graph of longer wooden stick pulled back the same amount. Use the probe to collect data & generate graphs to compare to your prediction. Record the graphs in Observations in your handout. Notice patterns between the graphs of the shorter wooden stick and the longer wooden stick. Answer Making Sense questions 5, 6, & 7 of handout.
  4. Conclusions– On ISN p.28, answer the following question: What discoveries did you make about sound sources and why different objects produce sounds of different pitches? Work in your cooperative table groups.

Question:

Do all objects vibrate when they are making sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and open to page 24. Read your conclusion on page 24 to your group. What do all of the conclusions have in common? What is something different about one person’s conclusion?
  2. Scientific Language Notecards– Make a scientific Language Notecard for the key word elasticity. Tape Scientific Language notecard to ISN p.25. Enter the vocabulary word Elasticity p.25 to the E Section of your Index.
  3. Conclusion– Switch ISN’s around the table. Read each other’s conclusion on ISN p.24, looking for the six elements on the board. Place a sticky note on the conclusion with the elements that are missing.
  4. Driving Question Summary Table- Complete the Summary Table on pages 18-19 for the Instruments Investigation on pages 24-25.

Question:

Do all objects vibrate when they are making sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Objects Investigation p.24” (Left Side); Head page 24 properly with “Objects Investigation- 11/14/17.”
  2. Turn & Talk/Stop & Jot– Make a claim based on the results of this investigation to answer the question “Do all objects vibrate back and forth when they are making sound? Work with a partner to write your claim on ISN p.24.
  3. Consensus Scientists’ Circle– What have we figured out about the source of sound that we can add to our model? What have we figured out about the anchoring phenomenon (record making noises as the needle scratched it)? How can we apply the discoveries you made to help explain how the needle and record produce sound?
  4. Conclusion– Write a conclusion on ISN p.24 to answer the question: Apply the discoveries you made to help explain how the needle and record produce sound.

Core Ideas:

  • For any pair of interacting objects, the force exerted by the first object on the second object is equal in strength to the force that the second object exerts on the first, but in the opposite direction (Newton’s third law).
  • The motion of an object is determined by the sum of the forces acting on it; if the total force on the object is not zero, its motion will change. The greater the mass of the object, the greater the force needed to achieve the same change in motion. For any given object, a larger force causes a larger change in motion.
  • All positions of objects and the directions of forces and motions must be described in an arbitrarily chosen reference frame and arbitrarily chosen units of size. In order to share information with other people, these choices must also be shared.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Forced to Accelerate p.84” (Left Side). Head page 84 properly with “Forced to Accelerate-Conclusion-5/31/17.”
  2. Investigation– Forced to Accelerate- How is acceleration related to force? Calculate average speed, final speed, and acceleration. Record in data table on page 85.
  3. Key Words/Notes- Newton’s second law of motion and acceleration. Write key words and explanation on page 85. Add to your Index.
  4. Conclusion– On page 84, answer the following question: According to your data, how is the acceleration of the cart related to the pulling force?

Core Ideas:

  • Substances are made from different types of atoms, which combine with one another in various ways. Atoms form molecules that range in size from two to thousands of atoms.
  • Each pure substance has characteristic physical properties (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it.
