Physical Science: Redesign
Now that groups have a plan for how they will test the second iteration of their design, they worked on actually planning that design. Compared the first time around, there was a lot more conversation about the different ways designs could fail. There was also a lot of talk about what had and hadn’t worked in the first iteration. At the end of the hour, each group paired up with another to share their testing plan, their design, and a justification for their design.
Physics: Free-Body Diagrams
After a quiz, students took their first shot at drawing free body diagrams. A lot of conversations went back to yesterday’s bowling ball lab to try and decide what kinds motion did or did not require a force.
