Today we are doing a lesson on Gravity and practicing problems that involve falling objects or objects thrown in the air. We are also doing a small investigation to find out the height of the bearpit by dropping objects and timing or video recording the fall. We are also preparing for a quiz that will be on Tuesday after the long weekend.
There was a trip out today. We are finishing up our kinematics problems sheets today.
Today is our last in class work period for this work.
We are working through the kinematics equations packages today and tomorrow.
Short Quiz - Accelerated Motion
We are starting with a short acceleration quiz.
Kinematics Equations Development
Today we are working on developing the 5 kinematics equations on your own. Tomorrow we will write out these five equations and also use them to solve problems.
Using the equations...
This comes in three parts. Part A are the basic types, Part B involve more thinking and Part C involve more complicated type problems. You are expected to solve all 15 in preparation for the upcoming evaluations.
Today we are continuing our work on the acceleration of gravity investigation. This will be due on Monday by the end of the day.
Today we are performing a uniform acceleration investigation. You can download the investigation sheet below.
Today is a post March break catch-up day. We will be doing an acceleration investigation tomorrow.
Finding accelerations and distances using equations and by analyzing graphs.
