Day 20: Lab Practical & Clouds

AP Physics: Lab Practical

We started working on a constant acceleration lab practical today. A marble will roll down a track while a constant speed buggy drives past. Given the starting point of one, students need to find the starting position of the other such that the marble will land in a cup taped to the buggy. I had a couple of administrative things to deal with at the start of class, so we only got to collect the data students need to complete the calculation. I’ve got a computer lab reserved tomorrow, so we’ll test their calculations on Wednesday.

Earth Science: Clouds

Students were introduced to the different types of clouds today. I added some questions to focus on patterns in the names of the cloud types. Students were pretty successful at picking out the key roots and prefixes that show up in cloud names and reasoning out what they must mean.
