### π’ 5: Th 9/29, π΅ 7: F 9/30 - inclined plane lab (part 2)

LAB SAFETY: The edges of the tracks hang off the tables and are sharp so students are reminded to be aware of where they are walking when doing the experiment.

Today, we'll continue the lab where we investigate the cart rolling down a ramp in the "Inclined Plane Lab." There are four main goals of this lab:

• To be able to describe the motion of an object down an inclined plane using the kinematic vocabulary that we've learned this unit.

• To find the relationship between the angle of the incline and the resulting motion (if there is one).

• To learn to linearize graphs in order to find the non-linear relationship between two variables.

• Familiarizing yourself with using sensor carts with π Vernier Graphical Analysis Web App.

We will spend roughly two class periods working collaboratively on this lab. Each person will be responsible for one trial (make sure to record the angle measurement for your trial), and then we will aggregate the data from all of the trials together in one Google Sheets spreadsheet for the entire class.

Homework: Make sure you have collected and analyzed all of your data in π Vernier Graphical Analysis Web App. When you have finished your trial, include your data into the class spreadsheet which you can access through βοΈ Google Classroom. βOpen Lab Notebook Lab Quiz on Tuesday, October 4th.

### π© 5: F 9/30, π¦ 7: M 10/3 - inclined plane lab (part 3)

Today, we will aggregate all of our class data and find the quantitative relationship between the angle of the incline and the resulting motion (if there is one). If linearizing is necessary, you'll do this today. We can continue working in groups to answer all of the lab questions. See βοΈ Google Classroom for full lab details. Lab must be completed in class and lab notebooks must be left in class. Only lab notebooks in my possession at 7:40am on the day of the quiz will be allowed to be used on the open-notebook lab quiz.

With any time remaining, we will start our next activity: "It's Your Lucky Day" Packet.

Homework: Open Lab Notebook Lab Quiz next Friday, October 7th.

### π 5: T 10/4, π 7: T 10/4 - inclined plane lab (part 4)

Today, we'll finish any part of the lab you have not completed. Make sure you answer the analysis questions in your notebook. See βοΈ Google Classroom for full lab details. Lab must be completed in class and lab notebooks must be left in class. Only lab notebooks in my possession at 7:40am on the day of the quiz will be allowed to be used on the open-notebook lab quiz.

With any time remaining, we will start our next activity: "It's Your Lucky Day" Packet (see next post for details).

Homework: If there is any part of the lab that you did not finish, finish it tonight for homework. You may add it to your notebook sometime before 7:40am on the day of the assessment. After that, no additional work may be added to your notebook. βOpen Lab Notebook Lab Quiz next Friday, October 7th.
