HP Cycle 7
10/14 - 10/19
🟢❗ 6: Th 10/14, 🔵❗ 8: Th 10/14 - Kinematics Assessment
❗Assessment on all of kinematics (everything to this point) TODAY.
If there's extra time, we'll start discussing Newton's 1st Law (see next post).
Homework: Take a break!
🟩 6: M 10/18, 🟦 8: F 10/15 - Newton's 1st Law
Today, we'll look at the history of thoughts about motion since Aristotle. Remember that science is ever changing. We'll learn about Newton's first law - the law of inertia through conceptual examples.
Presentation: History of Motion & Newton's Laws
Homework: Find or make a video that demonstrates Newton's First Law. Creativity counts. Submit the link on ✏️ Google Classroom by 10:00pm on Tuesday, October 19th. ❗Quiz on Newton's 1st Law Wednesday, October 20th.
💚 6: T 10/19, 💙 8: M 10/18 - relationship between force, mass, and motion
Today, we'll start a big lab for this marking period. We will design an experiment to determine the relationship between force, mass, and motion. We will talk about how we would go about finding the relationship between THREE different variables.
Then, we'll use 🎞️ Vernier Video Analysis to investigate the motion of a fan cart. (Access licensed version of 🎞️ Vernier Video Analysis in Google Classroom "Account Set-up & Tech" section at the bottom of Classwork.) A fan cart experiences a constant net external force. By the end of this lesson, you should be able to describe the motion of a fan cart by looking at the position vs time and velocity vs time graphs of the cart.
Directions: Once you're in 🎞️ Vernier Video Analysis, select to open the "Fan Cart" video from Sample Videos. In the settings gear button, change "Advance Frames" to 5 frames. Then advance the video to the frame where the fan cart is released. Click the Add button on the left and then the Track button. Place the crosshairs over a significant feature of the fan cart (maybe the yellow piece of tape), and then click "Start Auto-Tracking" at the top. The app should record the position of the fan cart at different points in the video. Click on the axis titles on the right graph to view the relevant motion, and determine with your group how you would describe the motion of the fan cart. This is the first question in your lab for next time.
Homework: ❗Study for quiz on Newton's 1st Law next class - Wednesday, October 20th. If you have not finished the fan cart video analysis, do that in 🎞️ Vernier Video Analysis (access through Classroom).
