Focus Question:

What is happening when speakers and other music makers make a sound?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “DQST p.62” (Left Side), “DQST p.63” (Right Side), “DQST p.64” (Left Side), “DQST p.65 (Right Side). Do not write a heading on those pages!
  2. Apply Instrument Model Individually– After modeling what happened to the drum once a force was applied to it, individually apply the model to a different instrument (like a guitar) in the next table of your handout. Your models will be collected at the end of class.
  3. Driving Question Summary Table (DQST)- Set up ISN pages 62-65 as DQST pages. In each two page spread, write the driving question for the unit across the top of the pages: “How can a sound make a thing move?” Then divide the right side pages into 3 columns: “Lesson Question,” “What did we do?” and “What did we observe? What happened?” Divide the right side pages into 2 columns: “What do you think caused your observation? (What we learned)” and “How does this help us understand the driving question or phenomenon?” Finally, complete the DQST on pages 62-63 for the Lesson Question: “What is happening when speakers and other music makers make a sound?” Use your investigation observations on ISN pages 58-59 as a resource.

Focus Question:

How does the motion of particles compare in a sample of matter at any given temperature?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Open your ISN to your DQST on pages 22-23 (or pages 24-25). Also, please get out your “Particle Interactions in Gas” handout.
  2. Driving Question Summary Table (DQST)– Update the DQST on ISN p.22-23 (or 24-25) for the “Particle Interactions in Gas” simulation on ISN pgs. 50-51. Tape the “Particle Interactions in Gas” handout as a flip page to ISN p.51.
  3. Scientific Explanation– Introduce the Scientific Explanation task and begin the initial drawing of the model on the template.

Home Learning:

  • Prepare your ISN to be graded and hand it in
  • Complete Self-Reflection of ISN in G.C. (#008)
  • Thermal Energy Transfer Scientific Explanation due Friday 1/17

Focus Question:

How does the cup surface affect how light warms up liquids?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do NowAsk the person who sits next to you the following question: Why does adding a lid to a cup decrease the amount of water that leaves the cup?
  2. Science Friday– Wild California Condors Made Here
  3. Redo’s/Self-Reflection
  4. Driving Question Summary Table– Update the DQST on ISN p.22-23 for the Light’s Effect Lab on ISN pgs. 42-43.

Thursday, 12/5/19- B Day- Block Schedule- Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Focus Question:

How does the cup surface affect how light warms up liquids?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s Home Learning Task in your planner. Get out your ISN and open it to page 42.
  2. Light & Temperature Analysis– Answer the following questions on ISN p.42: How does the amount of transmitted light affect the water’s temperature? How does the amount of reflected light affect the water’s temperature? Where does the rest of the light go if it doesn’t transmit through or reflect off the cup walls? Does this light affect the water temperature in some way?
  3. Model Temperature Change– Develop models to explain why the water warmed up differently in cups with different walls.
  4. Driving Question Summary Table– Update the DQST on ISN p.22-23 for the Light’s Effect Lab on ISN pgs. 42-43.

Home Learning:

Opportunity for re-do is tomorrow, 12/6
Anyone with IM (initial mastery) or NM (nonmastery) must redo.
Anyone with M (mastery) has the option to redo.
