Today we are racing the Mousetrap Cars...the write-up for this performance task is on Monday and Tuesday of next week.
Today we are learning about the law of conservation of energy!
Kinetic energy (work period)
Today we are completing all of the kinetic energy work and worksheets from last nights lesson and examples (the video tutorials). Tonight's homework is to learn about gravitational potential energy...
Gravitational potential energy
Today we are learning how to formalize and quantify the Kinetic Energy that a moving object has. Watch the video lesson, write the notes and do the example problems. Then work on the problems that follow.
