JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- Stage 1- On the Move

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- On the lined piece of paper: Describe a play in football (or a homerun in baseball or movement in any sport). Watch the video. Now explain that play using scalars (distance, speed) and vectors (displacement, velocity).
  2. Continue to work on the following reading assignments:

Articles

  • Talking About Motion– This article describes how all motion is relative to a reference point. The article also covers the difference between distance and displacement and the use of vector arrows to describe movement.
  • Rates of Change– This article defines rate as the amount of change in any measurement over time and gives several examples.
  • Speed- A Scalar Quantity– This article discusses three different ways to examine speed–instantaneous, constant, and average speed. The article also describes why speed is a scalar quantity and how to calculate and graph speed.
  • Velocity- A Vector Quantity– This article defines velocity as a vector quantity representing both speed and direction and distinguishes it from speed. The article also describes how to calculate and graph velocity.

*Links to the above articles as well as guiding questions to accompany them are found in Google Classroom.

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
