Thursday and Friday February 25th & 26th, 2016

Today's Quote:


Yesterday was a half day and somewhat relaxing. Students perfected their rocket designs and watched part of Star Trek. 

Seventh graders began the introductory video to genetics, however, due to the poor quality of the sound we will have to do that today.

5th period continued working in the textbook.

Brain Bender:

You throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?


8th Grade Honors- (note at 8:30am on Thursday I have to go to a brief meeting. You will watch Star Trek while I am at that.)

Today student will set up their data tables for their rocket launches and conduct three launches while recording the data. Distance (m), flight time(s), mass of your rocket (g)maximum height in arc (m) NOTE: This is best done by using a video to watch AFTER your launches. Also record: launch angle, and drop tube height. REMEBER to only change one variable. If you choose to change the launch angle, keep the drop tube height the same for all three launches or vice versa.

Questions to consider:

  1. What is the velocity of your rocket?
  2. What is the acceleration of your rocket?
  3. What is the distance of your launch?
  4. what is the force of gravity acting upon your rocket.
  5. What is the acceleration of your rocket?


Using the projectile motion video, draw a picture of your rocket launch. (This will be used for your test and everyone should have different answers)
