Warm Up: If you still have questions about yesterday's assignment (#31? #73 perhaps? Or any other!), plan on attending GPS. Ditto if you are missing assignments.
Warm Up: Can you name this Dead Physicist? Any idea what his significance is to the study of kinematics? Have your ball bearing data from the other day, and graph paper.
Warm Up: While Mr. Mason is checking off assignments, write down the number of any problem on the board that you would like to see worked out in class, even if that number is already up there.
Given: Ball bearings & track, stopwatch (phone), metersticks, video analysis app, dry erase markers or tape for marking the track Find (Part I): Devise a plan to determine whether the motion on the horizontal portion of the track is constant-velocity motion. Be able to show your evidence on a board. Include a graphical model, motion diagram and mathematical model. Find (Part II): Devise a plan to determine whether the motion on the ramp portion of the track is constant acceleration. Be able to show your evidence on a board. Include a graphical model, motion diagram and mathematical model.
Learning Goal: To be successful in this unit, you should be able to...
...accurately describe the motion of an object moving at constant velocity and represent it both graphically and algebraically.
...accurately describe the motion of an object moving at constant acceleration and represent it both graphically and algebraically.
...accurately present and interpret information from motion graphs.
...accurately describe the characteristics of the motion of a projectile launched at an angle.
Today: Ramp & Roll (You should be able to complete this today.)

Warm Up: Read this article, taking notes as you read. Take note of anything you learn from the article. What do you have questions about? Confusion? Write some reflections on the article - what do you think about it. How is it relevant to you? To this class?
