Focus Question:

How can any object make so many different sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “Graphical Representation p.74” (Left Side). Head p.74 properly with “Graphical Representation-3/6/2020.”
  2. Science Friday- Face Time
  3. Write-Pair-Share– Answer the following question on ISN p.74- How do the vibrations from a sound source compare for higher-pitch vs lower-pitch sounds?
  4. Application/Practice– “Connecting Graphical Representations to the Sounds Made” handout- Pair works on their assigned question set then join with another pair to share claims, evidence, & reasoning for question set.

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: “Loud vs Soft Sounds p.70” (Left Side). Head p.70 properly with “Loud vs Soft Sounds-2/28/2020.”
  2. Science Friday– Is Pedigree What It’s Cracked Up to Be?
  3. Application– On ISN p.70, answer the following questions: How is the graph of a loud sound different from the graph of a soft sound? How is the graph of a loud sound the same as a graph of a soft sound? What causes vibrations with more amplitude and therefore louder sounds? What other ways can sounds be different? Give examples.

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: “Instrument Model p.61” (Right Side). Head p.61 properly with “Instrument Model-2/7/20.”
  2. Science FridayOarfish: The Ultimate Fish Tale
  3. Co-constructing a Consensus Model of an Instrument Making Sound– How do instruments move when making sounds? As a class, we will use the “How do instruments move when making sounds?” handout to construct a model of how a drum moves when it makes sounds. Each box in the table, from left to right, will represent how the shape of a drum changes over time as it is making sounds.
  4. 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.

Focus Question:

How does a sound source make something like this happen?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents- “Related Phenomena p.56 (Left Side). Head p.56 with “Related Phenomena-1/31/2020.”
  2. Science Friday– Nothing to Sneeze At
  3. Share & compare models of how the speaker makes the window move. Record your ideas in a Similarities/Differences T-chart on ISN p.54.
  4. Build an initial consensus model of how the speakers make the window move. Record the class’s initial consensus model on ISN p.54.
  5. Brainstorm related phenomena– Where have you seen something like this? Record your ideas on ISN p.56.

Focus Question:

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

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do NowPlease get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the NEW Table of Contents- “Gas Particles Simulation p.50″ (Left Side). Head p.50 with “Gas Particles Simulation-1/10/2020.”
  2. Science FridayPlunge into the Science of BASE Jumping
  3. Online Interactive Model– Continue to explore the online interactive model. Review what we figured out as you made changes to the simulation using the control pad in Part A of “Particle Interactions in Gases” handout. Record what we figured out on ISN p.50. Collect more data using the interactive model and record your findings in Part B of the handout. As a full class, make sense of your small group data to build understanding and document what you figured out on ISNp.50.
