HOMEWORK

Week 16

5/29 - 6/1

Day 2

SWBAT:

Identify the criteria for a thorough discussion of sources of error

NOTE: On the Metric System Side, you only have to do #2-6. Be sure to show all conversions using factor-labeling. Please do all of the Significant Figures Side.

Research musical instruments and rainbows (separately) and write down a list of physics concepts related to each one (identify at least 5 concepts relevant to each). - due Monday

This can be as simple as googling "physics of musical instruments" and "physics of rainbows"

Week 13

5/6 - 5/10

Day 4

SWBAT:

Report measurements and calculations with the correct number of significant figures

What is "resistance"? When does a circuit have more or less resistance?

How can we calculate the amount of resistance of an object/circuit? (There are three ways - Ohm's Law, Series Circuits, and Parallel Circuits - discuss all.)

What is electric power? How do we make quantitative predictions of it?

Find two more electrical devices at home to record the electrical information for (see EC HW 4 as a reminder for what to look for)

Voltage Lab Report (based on data collected in EC WS 4) due on Wednesday, 5/9

Please share it via Google Docs (no hardcopy needed)

All of the guidelines for writing a lab report are here.

Note: Your graph should NOT have a line of best fit. This is the only time that you can create a graph where you "connect the dots".

Note: You do not need a hypothesis.

Week 12

4/30 - 5/3

Day 4

SWBAT:

Explain what electric power is and make quantitative predictions involving it

Apply understanding of circuits thus far to a variety of tasks

None

Section 3: Please read and take notes on this reading about Series and Parallel Circuits (its based off EC WS 4, so have this out while you're reading to make comparisons).

Section 3: Please read and take notes on this reading about Series and Parallel Circuits (its based off EC WS 4, so have this out while you're reading to make comparisons).

What is Newton's 1st Law (N1L) of Motion? Describe it and pick two activities/scenarios from class to explain/connect to it. (Discuss inertia as well here.)

What is a force? When do forces end?

What is Newton's 3rd Law (N3L) of Motion?

Week 12

11/27 - 12/1

Day 5

SWBAT:

Use Newton's 3rd Law to make predictions and explanations

What is Newton's 1st Law (N1L) of Motion? Describe it and pick two activities/scenarios from class to explain/connect to it. (Discuss inertia as well here.)

What is Newton's 3rd Law (N3L) of Motion?

Week 12

11/27-12/1

Day 3

SWBAT:

Deconstruct Newton's 1st Law of Motion and use it to make simple predictions and explanations

Please treat this like a quiz you would take in class. Put all resources away except for a calculator. Do the best you can. You'll correct it tomorrow in class.

Be able to access the video you'd like to use for your acceleration project. You'll need to be able to access it tomorrow in class.

Find 2 or 3 videos of accelerating objects that you might use as part of your final project. They should be objects that fascinate you. They can come from YouTube, movies, videos you've actually captured on your phone, etc.

Week 8 10/30 - 11/3

Day 4

SWBAT:

Practice creating and applying mathematical models of velocity created from VT Graphs

Generalize mathematical models from VT and XT Graphs of UA to create general equations of UA motion

PROMPT: How is constant velocity modeled in words and visually? Be sure to discuss motion maps and motion graphs. Provide at least one example (such as one question from CV WS 1).

This goes into the Mastery Section of your notebook.

Prompt: What is a scientific model? & How do scientists create mathematical models?

At least one page (8.5x11, single-spaced), including drawings and example calculations. Be sure to include at least one mathematical model with appropriate variables and units.

Remember: This quiz will not count for a grade. It will be a way for us to see how you've developed these skills, and where you might need additional support.

Prompt: What is a scientific model? & How do scientists create mathematical models?

At least one page (8.5x11, single-spaced), including drawings and example calculations. Be sure to include at least one mathematical model with appropriate variables and units.

Week 3

Day 4

SWBAT:

Use their understanding of mathematical models to complete the Toy Car Challenge!

Complete the following in your lab notebook for Monday, 9/25:

For your data, create the line of best fit and mathematical model. Show all calculations neatly.

Using your mathematical model, make one prediction (pick a value for your independent variable, and calculate what the dependent should be).

Write up a one paragraph discussion of the meaning of the trend, the meaning of the slope, the meaning of the y-intercept, and the meaning of your prediction.

In your lab notebook, create a professional data table and graph (on graph paper). Please do not do these on the computer, please do them by hand. You can refer to this checklist if you're unsure of what should be included (but no need to create a line of best fit for your graph yet)

Week 1

Day 5

SWBAT:

Wrap up Air Pressure Stations reflection or Bouncy Ball Challenge Testing

Identify the practices that scientists engage in, and the process through which they create theories and models

Review important course structures, including the syllabus and course website, and the resources that each provides

Finish your Predict-Observe-Explain table for the Air Pressure stations if you did not finish it class - due Tomorrow

For each of the Air Pressure stations (Strip of Paper, Soda Cans, and Flame Test), draw a picture that identifies areas of low pressure.

Section 6: Read this excerpt about Bernoulli's Principle. Then, write a one-paragraph response that connects what you learned in the reading to one of the Air Pressure stations

Read over the course syllabus with your parent/guardian for Monday

Bring back the cover page signed by you and your parent/guardian

Week 1

Day 1

Students Will Be Able To (SWBAT):

Identify other students in their class

Explain what "science" means to them

Describe what air pressure is and represent it visually
