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.
