Day 50: EM Spectrum & Projectiles

Physical Science: EM Spectrum

Students made a scale model of infrared through ultraviolet light where the length of the paper represented the wavelength of each type of light. I also had students do the calculations for how long a strip of paper would be needed to represent some other EM waves, including radio waves and gamma rays, just to give them a sense of the range the EM spectrum covers.

One group decided to turn their model into a Stroop test

Physics: Projectile Problems

Students whiteboarded yesterday’s projectile problems. I’m really pleased by the way my students are not only solving the problems successfully, but gaining confidence on some challenging material.
