Today in class students in 1st period discussed how we as a team on 7/2 are going to be successful working together. In 7th period students reviewed the rest of the energy transformation flowchart and worked on reading about Motion, Reference Points, and Relative Motion. Students are creating note pages to be able to study later.
Tomorrow, 1st period students will complete today's tasks, and 7th period will finish the discussion about working together.
Today in class students discussed forms of energy and their transformation from one form to another. We completed the PE/KE Test corrections and began to read about motion.
Today in class students continued their investigation into energy transformations. Photosynthesis and cell respiration are energy transformations in cells, and forms of transportation (planes, cars, trains) all use energy transformation to work.
Today in class students looked at different forms of energy and how one type transforms into another. We had a sub today while I was a county mandated math training.
Today in class students took the Interpreting Data Quiz and then completed yesterday's activities (google classroom).
Today in class students worked on extending their understanding of potential, kinetic, and mechanical energies. We looked at a roller coaster interactive video clip and read about how to design a perfect roller coaster.
Today in class students completed more PE/KE observation activities. We also looked at how to read tables of data and graphs. Students took a 2 question formative quiz to see if they are understanding these types of energy. We will test on PE and KE next week.
Today in class students worked together to observe potential and kinetic energy in action. Students without a signed safety contract worked on the paper activity choice that did not require working at a lab station, and read one of the activity lab station procedures in order to write up predictions before their teammates joined them with data (everyone then filled in the data tables).
Today in class students watched video clips about potential and kinetic energy that provided both visual examples and technical parameters that are measurable (mass, height, speed, gravity).
Today in class students took the Safety Quiz, completed the reading passages about PE and KE, and discussed energy as a class.
We will have a short (2 question) quiz Friday about PE and KE energy transformations
