GA STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE
SPS7.Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to explain transformations and flow of energy within a system.
a. Construct explanations for energy transformations within a system. (Clarification statement: Types of energy to be addressed include chemical, mechanical, electromagnetic, light, sound, thermal, electrical, and nuclear.)
SPS8.Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to explain the relationships among force, mass, and motion.
a. Plan and carry out an investigation to analyze the motion of an object using mathematical and graphical models. (Clarification statement: Mathematical and graphical models could include distance, displacement, speed, velocity, time and acceleration.)
b. Construct an explanation based on experimental evidence to support the claims presented in Newton’s three laws of motion. (Clarification statement: Evidence could demonstrate relationships among force, mass, velocity, and acceleration.)
c. Analyze and interpret data to identify the relationship between mass and gravitational force for falling objects

Friday 1/5

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
  1. Read and discuss pages 248-257
  2. WORD UP: energy transformation, law of conservation of energy
  3. SR’s: 253 & 257

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