🟒 5: T 10/25, πŸ”΅ 7: W 10/26 - relationship between mass and acceleration

Today, if you haven't finished the Force and acceleration lab in ↩️ Pivot Interactives, start with that.

Then, you'll work on finding the relationship between mass and acceleration in ↩️ Pivot Interactives with the lab called "Fan Cart: Mass & Acceleration (Scaffolded) BCF."

Homework: Finish at least collecting data for the ↩️ Pivot Interactives lab above by next class time! Both ↩️ Pivot labs are due on Thursday, October 27th at 10pm. No late work will be accepted.

🟩 5: W 10/26, 🟦 7: Th 10/27 - finishing ↩️ Pivot Labs

Today is the last day we have to spend on the two labs in ↩️ Pivot Interactives. They are due at 10pm on Thursday, October 27th.

On a separate sheet of paper, write down the equation you found for the mathematical relationship between force and acceleration for your particular fan cart mass. Also, write down the equation you found for the mathematical relationship between mass and acceleration given a particular fan speed. Don't forget that all numbers in your equation (slope & intercept) must have units. Units are embedded inside variables, so you do not have to write units with variable letters.

Homework: Make sure you've completed both labs by 10pm Thursday, October 27th! No late work will be accepted in Pivot. ❗Lab quiz on Thursday, November 3rd.

πŸ’š 5: F 10/28, πŸ’™ 7: F 10/28 - analyzing 2 experiments

Today, we'll take the next and final step in your lab analysis and talk about how to use the findings from your final lab graphs to find the relationship between force, mass, and motion. To do this, we'll have to learn how to combine two equations together to form one big equations that relates all three of the variables. We'll also discuss what needs to be in the final lab report. If there is time, you'll start working on that report.

Lab reports are INDIVIDUAL! You may share ideas in your lab groups verbally, but all the writing must be your own - your own words AND your own sentence/paragraph structure, particularly in the last part about sources of error. My suggestion is that you discuss and listen to others in your group. Do not write anything at this time. Then let a couple minutes pass before writing everything in your own words. Do not share your document with any other students. Do not cut and paste any phrases into the chat. Do not share screens in your breakout rooms. Do not dictate or write down sentences while anyone in your group is talking. If I detect that your work is not completely your own in that last part about error, you could suffer serious consequence to your grade and/or disciplinary action, so be smart about this!

Homework: Analysis is due to ✏️ Google Classroom on Wednesday, November 2nd at 10pm.

Tonight, it is very important to type up what we talked about in class before you forget. If you have any questions, ask me next class or send me an email at barbara.fortunato@wwprsd.org. Make sure you use Equation Editor or an equivalent program to type your equations in Google Docs. Handwritten equations in your write-up are not acceptable. "^" and "_" are also not acceptable - you must learn how to use your word processing program to accommodate subscript and superscript. ❗Closed-notebook lab quiz on Thursday, November 3rd.
