Today we are doing an example of dropping or throwing objects into the air and doing calculations related to this knowing that the acceleration of gravity (for all objects regardless of mass) is 9.8 m/s/s. We will then perform a quick investigation to determine the height of an immeasurable height within the school using this technique.

Kinematics Equations  DevelopmentToday 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. Kinematics ProblemsToday we will do some example problems of simple projectile motion (objects falling or being thrown vertically). We will also start the 15 question kinematics problems assignment. 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 will be investigating the Acceleration due to Gravity.
Today we are performing a uniform acceleration investigation. You can download the investigation sheet below.
Finding accelerations and distances using equations and by analyzing graphs.
1. Today we are completing the average speed problems and uniform motion investigation. 2. Uniform Acceleration (Introduction) Today we are learning the basics of ACCELERATION. Acceleration is simply the change in speed (velocity) over time. Things can speed up, slow down or change direction  all of these are considered acceleration. If the acceleration is constant...meaning a consistent change in an objects speed, then the acceleration is considered uniform.Which would win? explain...Before watching the video below  state which would win in a race: CAR, BIKE, or JET AIRPLANE. Explain your answer. Uniform Motion InvestigationWhat is uniform motion and how is it represented on a speedtime graph? What does the solve of a distancetime graph represent? In this section we will be solving some basic problems related to average speed, distance and time. We will also review the basics of experimental skills (dependent, independent, and control variables) and we will be doing a uniform motion investigation with dynamics carts.Tutorials Average Speed CalculationThe following assignment sheet is used to practice solving average speed problems.
