Day 13: Whiteboard Prep & Greenhouse Effect

AP Physics: Whiteboard Prep

We finally finished data collection on the ramp lab; using the dynamics tracks and the LabQuests for the first time along with working through uncertainty took longer than I expected. Students also prepped their whiteboards today, so tomorrow we can start by talking through the results.

Earth Science: Greenhouse Effect

Students did a lab to compare heating in a covered and uncovered beaker as an analogy for the greenhouse effect. We had some great discussion beforehand about what needed to be controlled in this experiment. While there were some good contributions, they came from a limited number of students, so I may try randomly calling on some students after they’ve had a chance to think independently and talk to a neighbor the next time we look at something like this.
