QUIZ today on Newton's First Law. 

After the quiz, we'll start taking data for our lab using the motion sensors. We
 will collaboratively conduct the lab we constructed last class where we try to find the relationship between force, mass, and motion. Make sure that you have exchanged all of the data you need with the rest of your lab group. 

Homework:  Put your data in your individual Google Sheet in Google Classroom.  Create a "scatter plot" graph for any of the data you were able to collect.  If the data looks linear, insert a trendline in your graph and display the equation.  If it is not linear, try to linearize the graph.  (If you need help in transforming graphs, refer to this worksheet that you were supposed to do a couple weeks ago:  determining relationships from graphs.)  Explain what you did and why. Find an equation for each experiment that describes the relationship between the independent and dependent variables.  THIS HOMEWORK IS INDIVIDUAL, but you may ask your lab team for advice.  There should be absolutely no cutting and pasting!
