There was an assignment on potential energy (P.E.) and kinetic energy (K.E.) given just before break. which is posted below. We will review that and discuss the answers tomorrow (Thursday)

Today

The last day before break, we played a review game that was based on questions from the entire semester. Your final will cover the entire semester. To help prepare for that, a semester review has been opened up on Quia. It is set to give feedback so you see which ones you got correct and which ones you missed. It would be wise to take notes on the items you missed and go back into your resources and figure out where you went wrong so you can get them correct the next time you do the review.

On the back side of the motion terms given today are some motion related diagrams. Look at diagrams B, D, E and F. Discuss what forces would be acting on these objects. Draw and label the force vectors that would be acting on them to prepare for class discussion.

Today

Discuss the continued motion terms starting with friction and going through centripetal force

Announcements

With mid-term grades coming out soon, make sure you are addressing any missing or unfinished work.

You will be presenting your Scientific Investigation Reports on Friday. Each person in the group must explain at least one part of the report to the class. Your group will also need to answer questions about the report and/or your investigation.

Today - Complete your investigation reports and plan your presentations for Friday

Review and refresh in your mind - What is an exponent and how do I use it on my calculator to make calculations? (Basic math skills, exponents and using your calculator)

Explore the following links that may be helpful in understanding exponents and how they work.

Use the document I give you in Google Classroom to complete your report, BUT I want only ONE COLLABORATIVE report from the group!

Indicate in you report who did which part of the report

Make sure all parts are clearly and appropriately labeled In Part 4, link your spreadsheet in your report and make sure you have given me permission to comment on it. Turn this document in through Google Classroom when completed

The Scientific Investigation Report should have all of the following parts included and clearly labeled in order.

Part 1

A) Define your question or problem and state why you chose this investigation.

B) State your hypothesis.

C) List and describe your experimental variables – independent, dependent and constants. Make sure your report clearly states how you controlled these variables.

Part 2 - Describe any problems or modifications that you had during the course of your investigation.

Part 3 - Write a detailed, step-by-step (Step 1, Step 2, Step 3…) procedure that would allow anyone who reads it to properly conduct your experiment. This procedure should be the “final procedure” that implements any modifications you had to make during your investigation to deal with problems along the way.

Part 4 - Set up a one-page spreadsheet with at least one table and one graph that shows your data. Write at least one calculation formula that fits what you did with your data. More than one table and/or graph may be needed to properly represent your data and it may make your report look more impressive as well, however, make sure the spreadsheet is only one page. The choice of graph should also appropriately represent the data. PART 4 SHOULD ALSO INCLUDE A WRITTEN SUMMARY OF YOUR FINDINGS THAT REFERS TO YOUR DATA AND IS BASED ON YOUR DATA. Include a link in your document that will take me to your spreadsheet.

Part 5 - State your conclusion in terms of whether your hypothesis is valid or invalidAND how your data supports your claim. Hand in any notes with raw data with your name of them and be prepared to answer any questions the teacher may have regarding your investigation. If the teacher asks anyone in the group a specific question and it cannot be answered, it may result in a point reduction!

Part 6 - State each of the following as they pertained to your scientific investigation and clearly list and label them.

One direct relationship

One inverse relationship

State some qualitative observations and some quantitative observations and label them

Describe one correlation and one causation within your investigation

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 9-22 Fri

Announcements

Check grades!

The Estimate-Measure spreadsheet and Football Throws spreadsheet grades are being added.

Today - Continue wrapping up scientific investigations and planing your report

EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE EXPERIMENTAL NOTES

You should be getting close to wrapping up the actual experiment

Start planning your lab report

What went wrong? - How did you fix it? - What could you have done differently from the start?

Think about quantitative and qualitative observations you made

Determine at least one direct relationship and one inverse relationship

Find one example each of a correlation and a causation in your investigation

You can also start loading your experimental data in a new spreadsheet and decide what type of graph would best represent what you want your data to show. KEEP YOUR NUMBERS AND YOUR UNITS SEPARATE ON A SPREADSHEET.

To assist you with your lab report, view the following videos and see that correlation and causation is about.

Assignment

Complete the Football Throws Spreadsheet

"Turn in" your spreadsheet through Google Classroom

Hand in the half paper checklist that goes with it

If you have had trouble with it, do not stress. I will still take them on Monday. Keep working on them.

Discuss the red light v. blue light experiment. What was the problem with that experiment?

Define/discuss terms

Independent variable - (manipulated variable)

It is what the scientist deliberately changes (manipulates) to see the effect

It is what the scientist is testing

How many should there be in good scientific investigation? ONE! (1)

Dependent variable - (responding variable)

It is the response the scientist is looking for and measurinG

How many should there be in good scientific investigation? ONE! (1)

Constant - things controlled to be the same to make the investigation fair

How many should there be in good scientific investigation? AS MANY AS NEEDED TO MEET THE SITUATION

Group up and start deciding what you would like to do for a fun scientific investigation (experiment) next week. We will devote the week to it, but that does NOT mean you have time to drag your feet or goof around. Groups need to settle on an idea that will work and decide who will bring the needed materials to get started once I approve their proposal and procedure.

On the back of the Science Problem Solving notes is the template each group will fill out and show me before they are allowed to start their investigation.
