Monday, 5/16/16- A Day- Last Day of SBAC Testing!!

SBAC Testing During Periods 2 & 3 (No Class)

Learning Objective:

  • To describe all positions of objects and the directions of forces & motions in an arbitrarily chosen frame of reference

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your Graphs of Some Simple Distance vs. Time Data handout; Calculate the speed of a plane that takes 12 hours to travel 96,000 km. Remember: Write the formula. Plug the numbers. Solve. Include units.
  2. Complete Practice– “Graphs of Some Simple Distance vs Time Data” handout
  3. Practice– Speed/Distance/Time word problems

Friday, 5/6/16- A Day

Learning Objective:

  • To describe all positions of objects and the directions of forces & motions in an arbitrarily chosen frame of reference

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and add open to page 96; Get out your Myth Busters active viewing handout.
  2. Science FridayTeaching Ancient Nautilus New Tricks
  3. Investigation Experiment– How does the speed of your motion affect the time it takes to walk a certain distance? Share data & calculate averages. Use data to create a graph. Copy conclusion writing prompts.
  4. Educational video– “Myth Busters: Head Rush- Water Bending Electrons”- For each problem/question that the Myth Busters try to solve/answer, identify the problem/question, describe the method used to solve it, and explain what they discovered. What did you learn about problem solving?

Homework:

Conclusion due Wed. 5/11

Thursday, 5/5/16- B Day

Remember: As long as you act like a scientist when we do science, you will be treated like a scientist and conduct investigations. If not, you get to watch the rest of us do science.

Learning Objective:

  • To describe all positions of objects and the directions of forces & motions in an arbitrarily chosen frame of reference

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Motion Investigation p.96” (Left Side); Head page 96 properly for today’s experiment with “Motion-Investigation-5/5/16.”
  2. Investigation Experiment– How does the speed of your motion affect the time it takes to walk a certain distance? Model possible procedure & point out where supplies are. Reminder of lab safety expectations & cooperative table group member responsibilities. Conduct investigation!

Homework:

Conclusion due Wed. 5/11

Tuesday, 5/3/16- B Day

Learning Objective:

  • To describe all positions of objects and the directions of forces & motions in an arbitrarily chosen frame of reference

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and open to your Unit Cover page on page 93; Add to the Table of Contents- “Motion Investigation p.97” (Right Side); Head page 97 properly with “Motion-Investigation-5/3/16.”
  2. Investigation Experiment– How does the speed of your motion affect the time it takes to walk a certain distance? Plan experiment- Identify IV, DV, constants/controlled variables and form hypothesis as full class. In cooperative table groups, design a procedure & data table. Model possible procedure.
