Today, we'll continue to work on our computer models of the traffic signal timing.  You definitely need to be done with your mathematical model at this point.  I will help those students who need help with the programming part of it.  Make a really good plan for completing the task outside of class.

Homework:  Traffic signal project will be due to Google Classroom Sunday, December 3rd.  You will not be given any more time in class to work on this project.  Don't forget to investigate a real-life intersection.  

Do Projectile Motion CompuSheets page 1 (Solutions) based on what you learned in class a couple weeks ago.  Watch the following two videos by Dan Fullerton.  They are both on projectile motion.  Watch only the first 11 minutes of the first video, and watch the entire second video.  The second video contains examples which you need to work through alongside Mr. Fullerton. Take notes while you watch both videos and bring these notes to class.
