- Review Vectors with Practice problems Contd. (Individual); Review Physics Classroom Activity (Vectors); Discuss Velocity and Acceleration (algebraic problems); WhiteBoard Lab – Velocity & Acceleration: Students will conduct a relay race (Walking backward and forward to change speeds) recording the distance traveled and time to travel distance of each team member. Students will record their data, Calculate Velocity & Acceleration and graph the results of the data; After activity: Differentiate Speed and Velocity; Complete ThePhysicsClassroom.com assignment – Speed vs Velocity (collab)
- Quiz - Vectors; Continue Whiteboard Lab - Velocity vs. Speed (Relay Race); Continue Speed vs. Velocity assignment
- Review Vector Quiz; Pre-Test Graphs & Vectors with remediation
- Test - Graphs & Vectors
- Review calculating velocity and acceleration algebraically; Intro to (g) - acceleration due to gravity; Lab - Ball Drop (falling objects) - Students will detemine the velocity of falling objects and the distance traveled by those objects.
Intro to Physics Concepts & Instructor; (Inquiry Based Exploration): How can the volume of an odd shaped object be determined? How can the area of a classroom be determined without a scientific measuring device? How can the speed of an object be determined from a video?
