HP Cycle 6
10/6 - 10/11
🟢 5: Th 10/6, 🔵❗ 7: F 10/7 - kinematic equations
❗Pd 7 - Open Lab Notebook - Inclined Plane Lab Quiz on TODAY.
We've already learned about the equations that DEFINE average velocity and average acceleration. Today, we'll start to use our mathematical definitions to solve problems in "It's Your Lucky Day" Packet (aka Porsche Problem). Here are the goals for work in this packet:
Learn how to manipulate the definitions of average velocity and average acceleration in order to derive other kinematics equations.
Learn the expectations for communicating solutions to kinematics problems:
listing of knowns & unknowns
using algebra to find an expression for the unknown in terms of all the knowns
solving the problem with numbers
In class, we'll try to do #1-3.
Handouts: "It's Your Lucky Day" Packet
Homework: Make sure you've completed #1-3 on "It's Your Lucky Day" Packet. See my solutions below. (The solutions below are for an older problem, so the numbers are different, but the solutions are the same.)
Check your Solution to #2 below.
Check your Solution to #3 below.
🟩❗ 5: F 10/7, 🟦 7: M 10/10 - kinematic equations - 2 objects
❗Pd 5 - Open Lab Notebook - Inclined Plane Lab Quiz on TODAY.
Today, I'll take any questions on the "It's Your Lucky Day" Packet. Then, we'll talk about how to do #4 from "It's Your Lucky Day" Packet. We'll talk about the "equations of motion" (aka kinematic equations) that you have derived as part of this packet, and learn how to use equations of motion to solve problems with more than one object. We'll use this Equations of Motion Graphic Organizer to identify the correct equation to use for any given problem.
Homework: Check your solution to #3 below. Complete "Which Equation Should I Use" assignment in ✏️ Google Classroom, due tonight at 10pm.
💚 5: T 10/11, 💙 7: T 10/11 - kinematics problem set #1 (1)
Today, we'll collaboratively work on page 1 of Unit 2 Worksheets. ANSWERS. FULL SOLUTIONS. Please show all of your work on a separate sheet of paper to be scanned and uploaded to ✏️ Google Classroom. Make sure to include all the components of problem solving reviewed in class:
Draw a picture or diagram or graph.
Pick a sign convention.
List your knowns and unknowns.
Write the formula you'll be using.
Rearrange the formula with algebra so that your unknown is on the left side of the equals and all the knowns are on the right. STAY IN VARIABLES!
Plug in numbers and box your answer.
Homework: Complete "Which Equation Should I Use" assignment in ✏️ Google Classroom, due tonight at 10pm. Finish Unit 2 Worksheets page 1 by Friday, October 14th at 10pm. ANSWERS. FULL SOLUTIONS. Upload pictures of your work to ✏️ Google Classroom by Friday evening.
