Daily Quiz: Inclined plane

Today, we'll continue what we were doing yesterday and finish at least the required problems from the Chapter 5 set:
Practice: 17, 18, 65, 40, 73, 79, 84
Required: 21, 42, 43, 74, 76
Enrichment: 31, 49, 85, 48, 90*, 93, 94

If you've already finished these required problems, you will be making a video of one of the harder problems from chapter 4 or 5 to help your classmates. We'll discuss internet safety issues.  If you need a dummy account to upload, let me know.

Then, for the main activity today, we'll try to figure out how fast we could go around the Bristol Motor Speedway in Nascar Problem.  You'll learn about how to approach banked turn problems.  We'll work in groups to try to figure it out.  
Homework:  Finish the Nascar Problem and any required problems from Ch 5.  If your group made a video, post the link on Google Classroom assignment.  If you did not finish  your video, you'll have time next period to do so.  Review your classmates' solutions in Google Classroom.  Test on Chapters 4 & 5 on Thursday, September 28th, but we'll start new material before then.
