1-D Kinematics: Describing Motion with Words
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In this unit students will learn how to analyze the motion of objects. Students will begin to make a mathematical connection with words that describe motion. This unit will focus on several examples of vector and scalar quantities (distance, displacement, speed, velocity, and acceleration). As students proceed through the lessons, they should give careful attention to the vector and scalar nature of each quantity. This tutorial also includes animations of each of the major concepts. At the end of each lesson students can check for understanding of concepts by answering concept questions.

Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

The bunny has forgotten to deliver an egg. Design a structure for the bunny to safely deliver the missing egg without the bunny being seen (drop from above) and without the egg breaking.

Students will be given a variety of materials. They are tasked with building a structure (ie: parachute, cage, etc.) to safely drop their egg to the floor without it breaking.

5th Grade - Prove Me Wrong
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Day 1- Teacher will begin lesson by going over the learning purpose - that the weight of an object after an interaction is the same weight it would be before (the sum of parts equals the whole). Students will be given a small canvas (i.e. - small cloth canvas, cardstock, cardboard, etc.). Teachers will allow students to use various materials to create a masterpiece (i.e. - paint, buttons, pom poms, etc.). Each group would be tasked to weigh objects BEFORE adding them to their masterpiece (for paint or other consumables - weight bottle before and after use). Students would TRY to prove the teacher wrong by saying that the sum of their masterpiece was greater or less than the sum of its parts. Day 2 - Students would present whether they proved the teacher right or wrong, then peers would analyze their work by asking clarifying questions.

Overview:

A complete model for describing 1-D accelerated motion (descriptive, motion maps, graphs and kinematic equations).  Begins with a paradigm lab of motion on an incline.  The lab utilizes Vernier Logger Pro motion detectors the way I implement it, but can be done with other methods of data collection.

Overview:

In this lab activity, students will accomplish two sequential goals. The first goal is to understand the law of conservation of energy through an activity where students mix cold and warm water with predetermined volumes and temperatures. THe second goal is to use their knowledge in part one to determine the temperature of hot water with a known volume and an unknown temperature that has been mixed with cold water with known temperature and volume.
