1-D Kinematics: Describing Motion with Words

Rating
0.0 stars

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.

1 - Kinetic Molecular Theory (KMT)

Rating
0.0 stars

Students will learn about the the hazards chemicals pose to the people who use them while learning about states of matter and kinetic molecular theory. First, students examine physical properties and hazards of substances and mixtures. Next, students examine how different gases respond to temperature changes and how different concentrations of salt water respond to temperature changes. Students engage in collaboration, analysis of data through board discussions, and writing an analysis using claim-evidence-reasoning. Using a phet simulation, students then model what happens to particles during increase and decrease in energy. Students then investigate thermal transfer through a water mixing lab. Finally, students engage in an ice cream engineering activity to examine how different substances in similar conditions can have different properties which may be harmful or beneficial.

1 - Pattern & Inquiry

Rating
0.0 stars

In Part 1 of this unit, students will learn about data collection, graphing skills (both by hand and computer aided [Desmos]), and the fundamental mathematical patterns of the course: horizontal line, proportional, linear, quadratic, and inverse. Students perform several experiments, each targeting a different pattern and build the mathematical models of physical phenomena. During each experiment, students start with an uninformed wild guess, then through inquiry and making sense through group consensus, can make an accurate data informed prediction.

2 - Elements and the Periodic Table

Rating
3.0 stars

Students will learn about elements, atoms, and the Periodic table through the phenomena - How do you know if your water is safe to drink? What kind of substances in water might be hazardous? First, student will learn atoms are made up of subatomic particles, which give rise to predictable properties through a phet simulation. Next, students will try to build their own table looking for patterns in element cards. Students will then look at properties of elements which are divided into metals and nonmetals. Student will then look at electron configuration through a POGIl activity. Students will also complete a flame test activity. Finally, students when end the unit with a engineering project examining water quality to determine if it is safe to drink.

2: Solar Oven Engineering

Rating
0.0 stars

Students can work individually or in groups of 3 or 4 to create a solar oven out of a pizza box. Students are trying to figure out the best way to make a solar oven in order to melt the chocolate and marshmallow in the S’more. Students will be given a group of objects and tell them the basis of how to create a solar oven. The oven will need to be placed in direct sunlight for most of the day. This experiment works best on a very hot, sunny day.

2 - Texting & Driving

Rating
2.0 stars

Students are confronted with a scenario of a student who is texting and driving in the school parking lot and they are tasked to determine the effect of various parameters to see if a student will collide with a pedestrian. Students must begin by breaking the scenario down into more manageable parts to determine what must be studied about the situation. Through a series of labs and activities, students learn how to model and predict situations with constant velocity and acceleration. Then, coding a spreadsheet, students model the complex situation of a texting driver, reacting, and braking during a potentially hazardous situation to create an evidence-based argument.
