Weekly Lesson Plans
Monday- Students will have 5 minutes to study for their CH 11 Vocab Quiz. Students will take their quiz. Students will take notes over Ch 11 S.3 about Forces and Friction. Students will watch a 12 minute Mythbusters clip about forces involved with freefall. Homework- none.
Tuesday- Students will see a centrapedal acceleration demonstration and have an opportunity to do it themselves. Then they will be working on a review packet for Chapter 11. Review Packet is due on Wed. Homework - Review Packet.
Wednesday- Students will watch a Mythbusters clip about circular motion. Then students will work on a Reaction Time Lab. The lab is due on Thursday. Homework- Finish lab.
Thursday- Students will trade and grade their Review Packets. Then students will work on a Bubble Gum Physics Lab. For the first part of the experiment, students use a timer to determine the number of "chomps" they can make in 10 seconds. The data they collect is used to calculate their chomping speed and make predictions for different amounts of time, such as 5 minutes or 1 day. During the second part of the experiment, students collect data about their chomping power and use the information to investigate speed as well as acceleration. For an added challenge, I allow the students to create an experiment involving bubble gum and give them the opportunity to investigate. Homework- FInish Lab sheet.
Friday- Students are going to work on their Study Guide for teh Ch 11 Test. Test will be Friday March 16th. Study Guide is Due Thursday march 15th.
