Show short video from Discovery Learning: Roller Coaster Physics

"What do we know?" Those things they already know about the topic ( probably will know very little about the physics associated with the solution to this problem)

"What do we need to know?" Those things needed to learn in order to adequately solve the problem.

Complete for homework if necessary.

Tuesday, 12/13 HOOK: Show the Jake Brown Video:

warm up: Does the object sitting on the table have energy? Explain.

think/pair/share other examples of things with energy

read and discuss pages240-246

word up: potential energy, kinetic energy, mechanical energy, thermal energ

Follow up with Phet Skate Park Simulation and have the students complete the handout regarding the relationship between GPE & KE & ME & TE & SE

warm up: 1. Common Formative Assessment (no grade): Show the skate park Phet simulation and have the kids hold up cards that have K for kinetic, P for potential, and T for thermal to indicate which type of energy is greatest at the given moments in the simulation

WORD UP: energy transformation, law of conservation of energy

SR’s: 253 & 257

HW: read pages 118-123 and take the necessary notes for use tomorrow
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The concepts taught over the next 3 lessons will be taught using a section of the “track” (foam pipe insulation) and the “car” (marble) through the Project Initiation lab activity.

Thurs 12/15

Provided students with the materials (one piece of the foam track), one marble, and access to the notes they took the night before for homework. (text pages 118-123)

These notes should include the concepts: motion, reference point, calculating average speed, recognizing speed graphs, velocity, calculating average acceleration, recognizing acceleration graphs, circular motion

2. Complete part 1 of Project Initiation lab activity

You do not need to memorize the formulas...please refer to the tutorials in this blog for review
we will be having a quiz over these calculation tomorrow FRIDAY 1/6

Friday 1/6: quiz & begin designing your coaster (refer to PBL directions and rubric) : refer to the top of this blog
work on coaster design, construction, videotaping and presentation
