Today, we'll have the Chromebook carts so that each person can contribute to the lab write-up where you will advise police on how to find the speed of the car before the crash.  Ideas of being an information literate researcher, globally aware and responsible citizen, and effective communicator will be stressed.  This will be your only day in class to work on the write-up, so work collaboratively to figure out how you're going to get it all done.  The lab is due on Monday, February 26th to Google Classroom.

Homework:  Make some headway on your lab write-up.  Then, in order to shorten our lecture time next class, please watch the following two videos:
