Focus Question:

How do the vibrations of the sound compare for louder versus softer sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s focus question on the first line of ISN p.69: “How do the vibrations of the sound compare for louder versus softer sounds?” Add to the Table of Contents: “Motion Detector p.69” (Right Side). Head p.69 properly with “Motion Detector-2/24/20.”
  2. Driving Question Summary Table (DQST)– Update the DQST on ISN p.62-63 (or 64-65) for the “Laser & Mirror” demonstration on ISN pgs. 66-67.
  3. Write Pair Share– Answer the following question on ISN p.69: What pattern did we notice in the vibrations of the laser light dot when objects were making louder sounds?
  4. Motion Detector Demonstration– Recording Our Data- Draw sketches on ISN p.69 of the graph of the motion of a student walking away from the Motion Detector and toward it. Title each graph. Label both axes on your graphs. Describe in words next to each graph what it looks like and why.

Thursday, 2/20/2020- A Day- Block Schedule- Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Focus Question:

Do all objects vibrate when they make sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the Table of Contents: “Laser & Mirror Demonstration p.66” (Left Side). Head p.66 properly with “Laser & Mirror Demonstration-2/20/20.”
  2. Write-Pair-Share– Answer the following questions on ISN p.67: What do you think would cause differences in how the laser dot moved in the demonstration? How do you think the laser dot will move if we use a speaker to make different sounds? Why?
  3. Laser & Mirror Demonstration– Speaker- As we carry out our investigation, record our data on Part 2 of your handout. Make a claim from evidence on Part 4 of your handout.
  4. Rubric for Modeling Motion of an Object Making Sounds– Work with your partner to use the rubric to evaluate and revise your model.
  5. Notebook Work– Tape “How do instruments move when making sounds (vibrating)?” handout to ISN p.61. Tape “How do objects move when they make sounds?” (laser & mirror) handout as a flip page to ISN p.66.

Home Learning

Readings– due tomorrow, 2/21– Where else are lasers used to detect vibration? (Reading 1: “Engineers Measure Big Ben’s Bell” and “Reading 2: The Vibrating Moon”) Read the two articles and then answer the questions

Tuesday, 2/18/2020- B Day

Focus Question:

Do all objects vibrate when they make sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the Table of Contents: “Laser & Mirror Demonstration p.67” (Right Side). Head p.67 properly with “Laser & Mirror Demonstration-2/18/20.”
  2. Write-Pair-ShareAnswer the following question on ISN p.67: Would you expect any object that makes sounds to move in the same way we saw the musical instruments and speaker move? Why or why not?
  3. Laser & Mirror Demonstration– Drum & Broomstick- We’re going to aim a laser at a mirror that will reflect the laser dot onto the wall so we can see it. Then we will make a loud sound on the table by banging on it. On the handout, “How do objects move when they make sounds?”, make a prediction of the possible outcomes in Part 1. Then, as we carry out our investigation, record our data on Part 2 of your handout. Make a claim from evidence on Part 3 of your handout.

Thursday, 12/12/19- A Day- Block Schedule- Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Focus Question:

What is the difference between warmer and colder substances?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “Heat/Cold Analysis p.44″ (Left Side). Head p.44 properly with “Heat/Cold Analysis–12/12/19.”
  2. Review Data Analysis/Conclusions– What patterns do you notice in the data? What patterns do you notice about the final temperature measurements? What happens when you increase the temperature difference between the water inside the cup and outside the cup? Tape “Data Set and Analysis: Heat or Cold Across the Cup Wall” handout as a flip page to ISN p.44.
