Today's Quote:

“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere.” ― Carl Sagan


Chapter 1 Unit 2 Speed and VElocity Page 21 Math Skills- NGSS skills check pg 24, and Section review

Turned in today1

Students were given their mousetrap race car packets and deadlines were written into their planners. Their first fully constructed prototype is due in class on February 4th. On this day I will help them with ideas. I WILL NOT ASSIST ASSEMBLE CARS! If they bring in a car, I can help them test it and improve it.

February 12th and 13th are the days of the race. (Students in Wshington, D.C. Will race the Monday they return to school.)

Mousetrap race car rules and requirements packet.

Today's Lateral Thinking question:

Now Playing During Lunch

Force and motion.

Speed and velocity in their simplest terms.

Today's Class:

Students had time in class today to work with a partner and become sages on the stage. Each partnership read a section of chapter 1 and then went to the board to give notes to the class about what they thought the most important part of their reading was. Following that, students worked on their maps from Last week's activity.

Today's homework:

Watch the video Speed and velocity in their simplest terms.

Read chapter 1 , Section 2 Ch1 Section 2 Speed and Velocity. Do Math SKill question page 21, Do NGSS skill check Page24, Do section Review. Due Wednesday or Thursday.

Read the article on calculating motion


Speed and velocity practice problems
Unit Vocabulary Define the following terms and then in sentence form describe one real life example of how the word applies (scientific point of view) You can use your desktop Sciencesaurus to do these in class. Due Thursday and Friday.

speed, velocity, positive acceleration, negative acceleration, inertia, momentum, contact forces (friction), non-contact forces (gravity, electrical and magnetic) balanced forces, unbalanced forces, net forces, Law of Universal Gravitation, mass, weight.
