🟩 6: Th 6/16, 🟦 8: W 6/15 - generators

Today, we'll take a look at how generators work. We'll explore some real life generators and do a Thinking Lab about Generators. By doing this lab, you should have a good idea about how generators work.

Here's how generators work:

Homework: Finish Thinking Lab about Generators for a grade.

πŸ’š 6: F 6/17, πŸ’™ 8: Th 6/16 - motors

Today, we'll try to use what we know about generators to try to understand motors. How are motors and generators the same? How are they different? After walking through how motors work as a class, you'll take some time to write a paragraph about how a motor works. Use your guided explanation of generators as guide to explaining how motors work. If you need help, watch the following video:

Then, we'll use some simple tools to create your own motor. We'll think about what we've learned so far in this unit in order to design an optimal motor given the materials.

Homework: Submit your paragraph on how a motor works to ✏️ Google Classroom by Sunday at 10pm. Be sure not to plagiarize! Put it in your own words (not the words of your textbook, the internet, a friend, etc.). Students who get a physical motor working during class are exempt from this assignment!
