Week of October 21-25 Assessment
Monday: We completed the Scienctific Experiment on our Air Trolley Activity
Tuesday: If you are traveling 80 mph, how long does it take you to go 80
miles? We are basically learning about Average Speed, but we began the lesson
differentiating among constant, instantaneous, and average speed. WE took
notes in a foldable and practiced solving a few problems.
Students also did an Air Trolley evaluation of themselves and their team
Wednesday: Bubble Gum Physics...Students calculated speed of chewing gum.
They recorded data and calculated for speed, which was Chomps per Second.
Thursday: We will be reviewing distancel, speed, variables for the
assessment on Friday
Week of October 14-18 We worked on the intro to physics standard. The finale
was constructing air trolleys The finale was to fly them and calculate
distance. We then got Team Averages, Class Averages, and 7th Grade Averages.
This included recording data into tables, making line graphs and bar graphs.
