Thursday, 3/5/2020- A Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Focus Question:

How do the vibrations from a sound source compare for higher-pitch versus lower-pitch sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “Frequency & Pitch p.75” (Right Side). Head p.75 properly with “Frequency & Pitch -3/5/2020.”
  2. Discussion About Frequency & Pitch/Notes– On ISN p.75, record notes on the discussion about frequency & pitch. Apply ideas about frequency, pitch, and amplitude to the question: How might you explain how the speaker in the truck can make so many different sounds (loud, soft, high pitch, and low pitch)?
  3. Driving Question Summary Table (DQST)– Update the DQST on ISN p.62-63 (or 64-65) for the “Motion Detector 2” investigation on ISN pgs. 72-73.
  4. Practice– “Analyzing Graphs of Sound Source Vibrations” handout

Thursday, 2/27/2020- B Day- Block Schedule- Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

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. Add to the Table of Contents: “Characteristics of Waves p.71” (Right Side). Head p.71 properly with “Characteristics of Waves-2/27/2020.”
  2. Data Analysis from Speaker & Stick Data– Observe the four graphs from the speaker & stick data. On ISN p.68, write the heading “Data Analysis.” Record the patterns that you see. Look for similarities and differences within and among the graphs. Write complete sentences starting with “I notice…” Point out the important features of the graphs.
  3. Discussion About Amplitude & Frequency/Characteristics of Waves Notes– On ISN p.71, write the definitions for amplitude & frequency. Connect a greater amplitude to a louder sound.
  4. Driving Question Summary Table (DQST)– Update the DQST on ISN p.62-63 (or 64-65) for the “Motion Detector” investigation on ISN pgs. 68-69.

Monday, 2/24/2020- A Day

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.
